KKM is jolly good fun ride as the director takes us on a treasure hunt, with an adorable lead pair and great supporting actors who will have you in splits. A welcome relief from those larger-than-life heroes, mindless action, this comedy caper is a silly yet surprisingly enjoyable film about misunderstandings and mistaken identities.
Madhumita has taken a leaf out of the comedy formula created from the mad, mad, mad world of veteran Singeetham Sreenivasa Rao (Pushpak, Miachel, Madana Kamarajan, Kaathala Kaathala etc), by roping in his favourite dialogue writer Crazy Mohan. The story is one of the most popular threads for comic movies anywhere in the world.
The lead pair Krish (Karthik Kumar) and Veni (Shika) are petty thieves who step on each others toes during their con escapades and can?t stand each other. But due to circumstances they are forced to get together to hunt for some missing diamonds.
The fun begins as three comic villains Anandraj, Vasu Vikram and TKM are also after the same treasure, while Jayaram plays a bumbling cop Mathubhootham very similar to Inspector Clouseau of the ?The Pink Panther?, is after the villains for a micro chip. All this leads to rip roaring climax with Crazy Mohan himself appearing as a judge, who can?t hear a word of the proceedings in the court!
Karthik Kumar fits the bill and his constant chirping and his run-in?s with the heroine is great fun. Earthy and outrageous, the new girl Shika with singer Suchitra (Mrs Karthik Kumar in real life) dubbing for her is the life of KKM. She and Karthik have an instant connect which makes the film tick. Watch it also for the array of comedians like Jayaram, MS Bhaskar, Anandraj, Vasu Vikram, Vyapuri and Radha Ravi in a fantastic comic cameo that truly makes it a laughton.
The highlights are Crazy Mohan?s funny one liners and dialogues with comic connotations, though some of them remind you of his earlier Panchathantram jokes. Selvaganesh?s music could have been better, only the peppy melody Oru Varam.. is hummable. The cut to cut editing of Vijay Venkatraman without using any gimmicks makes it a racy comedy at 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Madhumita has slickly packaged the film, which provides sufficient entertainment. The elegant comedy is your family vacation movie that fits in with the new spirit of the season.
Verdict- Jolly good fun
