Star Cast

GV Prakash, Nikki Galrani, Anandhi, RJ Balaji, Prakash Raj,

Capitalizing on his image, GV Prakash Kumar's new release, Kadavul Irukaan Kumaru is yet another comedy entertainer with several Ajith-Vijay references, spoofs on TV shows and celebrities to cater the masses.

Two days before his wedding, Kumar(GV Prakash) and his friend Balaji(RJ Balaji) take a road trip to Pondichery for a bachelor party . While returning to Chennai, Balaji buys booze in bulk but they get caught by three corrupt police officers (Prakash Raj, Robo Shankar and Singam Puli).

Despite their repeated failed attempts to escape from the cops, both Kumar and Balaji agree to bribe them with three lakhs! Unfortunately Kumar's fiancée Priya (Nikki Galrani) acts selfish and refuses to help him with the money but his ex-girlfriend Nancy (Anandhi) readily agrees. Will Kumar change his mind and end up marrying his ex?

Just like his previous films, Rajesh has once again opted for a wafer thin storyline and gives more importance only to comic portions. Thanks to RJ Balaji, Prakash Raj, Singam Puli and Robo Shankar, the film is  enjoyable because of their funny one liners. However the major issue is that the comic sequences are not organic and only filled with occasional gags.

GV Prakash Kumar has successfully repeated his trademark mannerisms and the loser boy Kumaru character is tailor made for him. But the two heroines, Nikki Galrani and Anandhi are wasted in insipid roles,  look bloated with tacky make-up and they sleepwalk.

Yes, RJ Balaji's comedy works but is it necessary to troll everyone including Shruti Haasan, STR and even the film's hero GV Prakash's Pencil ? The actor should probably work on genuine one liners instead of attacking individuals and peers in the industry.

To conclude, Kadavul Irukaan Kumaru is a  watchable comedy entertainer and it might entertain if you don't worry much about logical loopholes and some blatant comedy sequences.
