Review Overview

Technical Aspects

Pleasant, feel-good moments

Even with its budgetary limitations and also the feel of watching a film made for the younger folk, Azhagu Kutty Chellam does not tire you out and ends up as a fine fare. Debutant director Charles must be appreciated for the love of children he possesses, and his power to translate a portion of that onto the screen.

Going by the name of the song from Saththam Podathey, director Antony (Vijay TV Neeya Naana fame) makes his big screen debut with ‘Azhagu Kutty Chellam’. A simple, feel-good film with a ton of moments will make you smile, this film does manage to keep you engaged though it comes with the usual pitfalls which we associate with small films.

Azhagu Kutti Chellam is a film which narrates the chronicles which take place in the lives of many contrasting characters who reside within the same surroundings. The whole film has a lot of kids making their appearances at regular intervals, making it the USP.

The film brings together a lot of interesting people such as Karunaas who is an auto driver waiting for his wife to deliver a baby, a couple playing chess, another couple in grief after losing their child, a teacher and also four students putting up a stage show. Almost all the characters come up with nice performances, with the best bet going to Karunaas who never stays lazy in his roles. The child actors are a revelation, with the director extracting good acts from all of them.

Ved Shankar’s music is the best thing about the film, as it brings in a likable aura and elevates even the simplest of situations with heart-melting music. The camerawork and the editing are both effective, although prosaic. Though the first half is a little bit of a sloth, the second catches up and makes this worth your time.

Even with its budgetary limitations and also the feel of watching a film made for the younger folk, Azhagu Kutty Chellam does not tire you out and ends up as a fine fare. Debutant director Charles must be appreciated for the love of children he possesses, and his power to translate a portion of that onto the screen.
