Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukkutty - Review

Expectations were too big on Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukkutty starring Mammootty and directed by Ranjith with the duo teaming up again after block buster movie Pranjiyettan And The Saint. The movie was also in news for selling it's satellite right for a whopping Rs 5.7 crores making it safe in the business. 

 
However, it is the audience to decide if the movie lived up to their expectation. Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty is produced under the banner of August Cinemas by Prithviraj, Shaji Natesan and Santhosh Sivan.
 
Story line
 
The movie begins showing Mathukkutty's ?(Mammootty) life in Germany. Matthukkutty is married to Jansamma (Muthumani) and has two children. However, he doesn't have a job and have to beg to his wife for his expenses. 
 
Meanwhile, the Malayali association in Germany decides to bring Mohanlal for a show there and asks Mathukkutty to go to Kerala to invite the star. This makes Mathukkutty move to Kerala and there he meets his old friends and ex-girlfriend Rossy (Alisha Muhammed). A few incidents that occur later make for the rest of the story.
 
Performances
 
Mammootty excels in the role of Mathukutty with real ease. Muthumany as Mathukkutty's wife Jansamma, P Balachandran in the role of Mathukkutty's ex-girlfriend Rossy's brother and Tini Tom as local TV reporter do fantastic job. All other actors - Nandu, Shekhar Menon, Meera Nandan do justice to the their roles. The cast also include Nedumudy Venu, Balachandra Menon, Siddique, Suresh Krishna and Kottayam Naseer.
 
Final Word
 
Like his previous movies, director Ranjith has tried to discuss social issues in a sarcastic manner, however the movie is too realistic to be enjoyed by the viewer. The cameo roles of Mohanlal and Dileep do nothing great to Mathukkutty. 
 
The movie is lagging from the beginning and is worse after the first half. Mathukkutty could have been made much better by using the scope of the excellent cast and theme. In one word - those who expected and good entertainer, Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukkutty is a disappointment.
