Ramanarayanan is making a return to mainstream commercial cinema with Kutty Pisasu, a film touted as a children?s entertainer. It is the veteran director?s 121st film, and he sticks to his age old formula which was very popular in the 70?s and 80?s.

The animals and snake specialist now depends on graphics and special effects to make his film. The story seems to be a left over of his earlier films. Priya (Baby Keerthika) is the daughter of a Brahmin couple Sangeetha and Ramji who are always performing poojas, eating Thayir Sadam.

Sangeetha?s father Delhi Ganesh watches FTV, but all of them love little Priya. But the trouble is that she is possessed by the spirit of Sangeetha?s best friend Kaveri, who was killed!

In a flashback, the audiences are told that Kaveri and her brother Ganja Karupu owned an yellow car which was their priced possession. But their evil cousin Riaz Khan who was to marry her, sacrifices Kaveri to sorcerer Mandiramoorthy.

Ganja Karupu dies as he tries to save his sister. His spirit gets locked in the yellow car and after years he is freed by Ramya Krishnan, the protector. Ganja Karuppu?s spirit becomes a 18-feet giant called 'Car Man' and kills the baddies. How the spirits takes revenge and good triumphing over evil is told in an old fashioned way.

The special effects and graphics are just ok; otherwise there is nothing in the film. Ramanarayanan has tried to mix witchcraft, sorcery, crass comedy with modern graphics borrowed from films like ?The Transformer? and ?The Car?. It is meant strictly for the consumption of interior Tamil Nadu audiences.

Verdict: Kid?s stuff
