With lots of controversies running to the far-flung corners of the tinsel town, Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya seems to make a big rowing for various factors. Let’s stick to the first one is the never-ending pettifogging tiff between KLTA Vs K Bhagyaraj’s Indru Poi Naalai Vaa. The other one is obviously the realms of Power Star Dr Srinivasan, who can send you crazily glued with irresistible laughter riot patently with his body language and punch dialogues.
For the ones, who have been well versed with the synopsis of K Bhagyaraj’s Indru Poi Naalai Vaa, there isn’t need to glimpse through the storyline of Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya. It’s a wafer-thin plot of three persons (Santhanam, Power Star and Sethu) falling in love with a beautiful girl Sowmya (Visaka). While Sethu is involved in impressing her family elders by taking up household works, Santhanam picks up the vocal classes from her uncle (none other than VTV Ganesh) and Power Star pursues dance class from her dad (choreographer Siva Shankar). What unfolds next is a chain of funny incidents that keeps your funny bones tickled from beginning till end.
Undoubtedly, the film evokes laughter in many places and keeps us entertained irrespective of many sequences bringing the yesteryear inspiration of IPNV. How can one forget the evergreen hilarious encounters between one among the three pals and Hindi tutor (EK GAUV MEI EK KISAAN (RAGU) THATHA). But debutant Manikandan ropes in the actors, who can pull the strings of humour right with their body language. Say for instance, VTV Ganesh as a classical singer is awesome and the moment, we spot him first time on the screens, it’s an unstoppable fun and Siva Shankar is known for his dance moves and rendering style of dialogues. Newcomer Sethu doesn’t have much to perform, for he looks doubtful in his acts. Maybe, the humour concept didn’t have much to expect from him, but the newbie can improvise a lot if he has a plan to make long stay in K-town. Santhanam as usual leaves us in splits with his witty-liners (thanks for not bringing double-entendres including the deletion of a line that was seen in trailer). And the ultimate showstopper is Power Star Dr Srinivasan. Mark our words! From a 5-yr old kid to 80-yr nanny, this magical personality keeps them completely in fun and entertainment. The cameo appearances by Young Superstar Silambarasan and filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon are additional attractions. The other characters playing power Star’s family members are excellent in places. Think of them at anytime post-show and you cannot avoid barking into huge laughter.
On the technical part, there is nothing much to praise about the composer Thaman. You can’t blame him for the film doesn’t carry anything but humour and so are the songs. If there could be something catchy, it’s the couple of Gaana songs (Love Letteru and other one with Ganesh).
As on whole, Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya can be a breezy fun-filled entertainer to watch it with your family members.
P.S - Erase the complete picture of Indru Poi Naalai Vaa and you have more fun to enjoy here.
Verdict: Exclusively for Power Star fans.
