After its earlier hit 'Chennai 600028', Capital Film Works' new offering 'Kunguma Poovum Konchum Puravum' was hyped as the next blockbuster set to turn the turnstiles with a vengeance.
Instead, it has turned out into a damp squib that looks like a cinematic presentation of Rip Van Winkle arriving a further decade too late.
A village boy Kuchcha (Ramakrishna) falls like a ton of bricks for a poor rustic damsel Thulasi (Thananya).
Circumstances and a crippling accident suffered by Kuchcha force Thulasi to wed a layabout Dharman (Tarun) in the port city of Tuticorin to set the stage for a violent climax by her avenging lover.
To compare this one to Bharti Raja's seventies' hit romances would be insulting the picture-postcard-style filmmaker despite the film being set in Muttom, a scenic locale in Kanyakumari district (a Raja favourite).
All the actors with the sole exception of Thananya are loud hams.
