Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam Tamil Movie Review

Cast: Santhosh Prathap, Akhila Kishore, Dinesh Natarajan, Lallu Prasath, Sahithya Jagannathan, Vijay Ram, Mahalakshmi, Thambi Ramaiah and a whole lot of cameos by other stars...

Director: Radhakrishnan Parthiban

Music Director: Thaman

Plot: An aspiring director along with his friends decides to make up a storyline for their film.


The film starts off with some cameos played by popular stars and a couple of pretty gruesome images. Just when you start to think what is happening, the real film starts. Tamizh, along with his friends Aravind, Murthy, Shirley, Murali and Cheenu (his mentor) is discussing various openings for a film. There you get the feeling this film has some stuff.



Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam (KTVI) is not your ordinary 'hero aspiring to become a director' story. It is completely something different. The hero has other problems to take care, other than the story he is penning. He's got his wife Daksha, whom he often terms 'eccentric'. His mentor Cheenu who does basically nothing that is helpful to him, but keeps the former with him as a source of movie history. Then......... Well! Parthiban said this a film without story. So there is nothing much to say as a story here as all are just episodes in the hero's life. And I don't want to spoil things for you.


KTVI is such a spoiler heavy movie. It's also a unique attempt. To be precise about how the screenplay has been handled - the story or an event unfolds to the viewers only after it had happened. KTVI can also be boldly called as a thriller movie, a horror, a comedy, a drama, oh you can call it everything! It's a mixture of all these elements. Parthiban proves once again why he is called as a director with a unique approach. KTVI has truckload of things to be accoladed with. So, here goes...


It is like a story in which you can find a plenty of other stories. It is like an inception of stories and you just can't decide which one you to love. The editing is out standing. The film employs some of the most popular and innovative elements in movies. One of which is the fourth wall breaks. You will absolutely love these 4th wall breaks moments for sure. The background music is perfect and the dialogues are stunningly fresh. Oh, there are cameos of your favourite stars in between and at the end. Basically, KTVI is a movie that was made with an aim of becoming an instant cult classic and sure it will. The intermission scene is undoubtedly the best interval scenes in recent times. The
climax is definitely something that is the first of it's kind in Tamil cinema.


There are demerits as well. The film, unlike its tagline says, has a story. The actors are all newcomers except Thambi Ramaiah and all have done below par efforts in means of acting. The song sequences could have been cut and romance could have been sliced smaller to get a more crispier movie. All the cameos don't get enough screen time except Cheran, Arya, Amala Paul, Vishal, Tapsee and Prakash Raj.


KTVI in any way is not an average movie and in any way is not a perfect movie either.  It stands between the average and perfect. But it is a unique, intelligent and beautiful movie which is definitely 'A tribute to 100 years of Indian Cinema'.


Rating : 3.5 / 5
