It’s been a long time that theatres had a beautiful family entertainer. The releases that came up in the last few weeks were completely action packed strokes from Vijay and Ajith, while Vijay Sethupathi delivered a couple of flicks on different notes. But Idhu Kathiravelan Kadhal is a clean family entertainer with more space for emotions and humour.

This is not a complete comedy caper like Udhayanidhi’s previous release Oru Kal Oru Kannadi directed by Rajesh. SR Prabhakaran (Sundarapandian fame) comes straight with a clean entertainer that has a good characterisations and pleasant screenplay.

The film has an onionskin plot… Kathiravelan (Udhayanidhi Stalin) is a cool guy with a responsible nature. While his father (Aadukalam fame Narain) banishes his daughter (Chaaya Singh) for marrying her love, Kathiravelan too goes the same way. Will his father accept his children giving up his ego? Watch it on the screen that is done with a neat narration.

Udhay has matured a lot when compared to his previous film. His performance is naturalistic and even his dancing is quite moderate. He has showcased a hard work and it’s quite evident. Nayantara looks beautiful, but her role is casual and nothing as challenging as in Raja Rani and Arrambam. But her makeover is perfect than her previous movies. After a long time Santhanam leave you in splits with his witty lines, especially his climax act that resembles Boss Engira Baskaran and Oru Kal Oru Kannadi. Aadukalam Narain is groovy and his final act with Udhayanidhi is worthy of claps. Jayaprakash does a neat job and Chaya Singh does complete justice to her role.

Musical score by Harris Jayaraj is little disappointing. Except a couple of songs, there is nothing to appreciate him. Cinematography by Balasubramaniam is top-notch and his rich colours make the visuals more pleasant.

SR Prabhakaran deserves special mention for crafting a nice story with family elements. The dialogues are hard-hitting and overall the film proves to be a decorous entertainer.

Verdict:Interesting and entertaining in many parts.
