Unimaginative Indian filmmakers are just unable to get past their idee fix over love.
For several decades, Indian directors have chronicled the same torment and bliss of love in movie after movie, be it Tamil, Hindi or Telugu.
Chithiram Pesuthadi is no exception to the rule.
Starring newcomers Narain a.k.a Sunil and Bhavana, the movie is a love story that has nothing special going for it.
Chithiram Pesuthadi is the story of a middle class girl Charu (Bhavana) who falls in love with Thiru (Narain), henchman of a gangster Annachi played by Dhandapani.
In typical Mills & Boon style, the girl is angry the first time she encounters Thiru. Over time, anger turns into love, particularly after Thiru leaves the gang and attempts to earn his livelihood in an honest manner.
But Charu's love quickly turns into a deep hate after she sees him being arrested by the police at a brothel sans his clothes.
She cancels her impending marriage to Thiru and to add to her distress her father commits suicide.
Comedy comes in the form of Thiru's cronies, who are also Annachi's henchmen.
Before the two lovers can unite, Chithiram Pesuthadi's director puts the audience through several hoops and much pain.
For a fresher, Bhavana has done an effective job in her role while Narain's acting seems contrived far too often.
Dhandapani comes on strong as the boss of the criminals.
To his credit, director Mysskin has introduced a couple of interesting twists when they were least expected.
Another point in the movie's favor is the impressive camera work by by Mahesh Muthusamy. But the plusses are few in Chithiram Pesuthadi.
Although the music isn't great and unlikely to lodge in your memory, Idam Porul Parthu and Pattam Poochi are two of the better songs. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
