Oru Kuttanadan Blog Review: A blog that fails to click
As the title suggests, Oru Kuttanadan Blog movie is presented in the form of a blog. Mammootty‘s character, Hari is a character who is adored by the youth and a consistent headache for the elderly. All the events that happen in the small town have the hand of Hari. The supposed role model and the issues that arise from his meddling in social affairs is the crux of the plot.
A man who is neck deep in riches along with a bunch of friends ready to do anything is the life of Hari. The three heroines have their lives intertwined with that of Hari. Although their roles don’t ensure much of the space compared to Mammootty, Anu Sithara and Shamna Kasim and Raai Lakshmi have seemingly justified their roles. Sunny Wayne, Nedumudi Venu, Lalu Alex appear in other prominent roles.
Audience who came expectantly to witness the beauty of Kuttanadu, were in for a slight disappointment as the songs were the add-ons that was highlighted. Especially, the title track by Vineeth Sreenivasan. Shameer Ahmmed who has done the editing job neatly. The songs have been created by Sreenath. The comedy scenes in the first half made the movie into a very fast pace. The first half ends with some suggestions regarding the melodramatic second half.
Mammootty ensured a stellar performance in his role as ‘Hariyettan’. The over importance given to the central character has affected the story in a significant manner marring the steady flow of the plot. Some of the scenes were specifically made for hardcore Mammoty fans. Without resonating well with the story, these scenes came out as awkward and meaningless. Many sequences which the audience anxiously awaited, were ruined because of this centrality. The direction could have been better considering these drawbacks.
Apart from the fans, who hail Mammootty as a Social Revolution God, will find the movie sticking with the imagination. On the application of strict logic, Kuttanadan Blog cramps in steady sequences offering only colorful portraits of the country side. It is also a gentle reminder that this beautiful land should not be prey to another destructive flood.
