DirectorJean Markose’s Kuttanpillayude Sivarathribegins as a drama happening in the home of a police constable before theplot some curious turns, mainly towards the end. 

Kuttanpillai(Suraj Venjarammoodu) is a police constable, living in a rather huge ancestralhome, with his wife Sakunthala, who is a sub inspector. Kutttanpillai is scaredof crackers, his son-in-law Suneesh (Biju Sopanam) and ghosts, not necessarilyin that order. He often see a group of ghosts in a neighboring grave yard. 

The firsthalf of the story goes along without any direction and the efforts are just tokill time by adding one liners that are meant to tickle the funny bone. Duringthe Sivarathri festival at a temple in the area, Kuttanpillai’s relatives cometo his home and he hates this. 

His son-in-lawwants the wood of a jack fruit tree in Kuttanpilai’s plot to complete thebuilding of his new house. But Kuttanpillai loves the tree more than hisfamily. 

With awafer thin plot and some comedy in between, the first half tests your patience.The dramatic twists in the story that happens in the second half takes it tillthe end, but as a bumpy ride. Though the duration of the film is only 2 hours,you fill like being there for quite long, as the end titles start rolling.

The visualsare good and the music by Sayanora Philip is peppy.

The keyaspect that works for the film is an impressive performance by SurajVenjarammoodu. He does his role with total dedication and makes his characterlook convincing. The rest of the cast have done their parts fine. 

Kuttanpillayude Sivarathri is based on some ideas that arebarely sufficient to make the viewers glued on to the screens for this long. Ithas some good moments and could be an okay fare at best for the not sodiscerning viewer.
