Sundar C has distinctly proved to be a black horse in the box office run over the past couple of decades. His commercial formulae, handling a bunch of star-cast and presenting the movies at best budget makes him a favourite to trade circles and audiences as well. In the recent times, his movies have been getting an additional attribute of being shot inside a same location. Either a palace of lodge has been proving to such paradigms in Kalakalappu and Aranmanai franchise.
Kalakalappu 2 much alike the first part is being shot inside a lodge, which has its story revolving around it as well. The story shifts to a different backdrop in second half and the climax as usual in Sundar C style brings all the characters together for the slapstick act. Moreover, there are yet more similarities between both the installments, where Santhanam’s entry by second half is matched with Mirchi Shiva out here. Having cited ‘Santhanam’ for reference here, it is completely an unimaginable scenario to make a film of this franchise without him. But Sundar C has proved that it’s his writing that eclipses everything. He brings in so many actors, who keep tickling our funny bones.
Right from Mirchi Shiva, VTV Ganesh, Yogi Babu, Manobala to Singamuthu, everyone has their toast of hilarious appeal. Well for the lead actors – Jiiva and Jai, they are no different from the routine Sundar C heroes. Just imagine Ajay Devgn and Arshad Warsi in Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal franchise. Obviously, they’ll have nothing to perform on their own, but just get into the shoes of his heroes’ zone. Hip Hop Aadhi has composed songs that instantly attracts youth groups.
For the first ever time, we get to see that UK Senthil Kumar has gone beyond his routine standards and has presented colorful visuals. There are few things to be mentioned over the flip side, it doesn’t run into long queue, except for the long stretched second half and climax. But it doesn’t look like a noticeable blunder and would be enjoyed by commercial film lovers. Catherine Tresa and Nikki Galrani get their due credits of being a perfect Sundar C heroine. They are glamorously depicted with appropriateness and are very well presented with voguish costumes too. Mirchi Shiva appears only by the second half, but his witty lines keep us highly laughable. The best instances could be ‘Gentleman Arjun and Mankatha Arjun’.
Kalakalappu 2 is a film that keeps you engaged with laughter riot and you’ll feel the jolliness everywhere.
