Kurumbu does only one thing very well - it proves the theory of Evolution.
Even creationists in the U.S., who steadfastly refuse to believe in evolution, have but to watch this abomination and will
forthwith change their views.
That man descended from monkeys is amply proved by hero Naresh's simian antics in Kurumbu. Son of Telugu film director EVV
Satyanarayana Rao, the kid overacts from the get-go and is obviously unschooled in the fundamentals of acting.
Kurumbu fails at every imaginable level - acting, story, music and photography. Heroine Nikita is the sole saving grace of
this sophomoric love story.
Ravi (Naresh) and Appu (Nikita) are college students and close friends, who live in a big apartment complex.
Ravi's hormones start playing up when sexy Ruchi (Diya) moves into the opposite apartment. The juvenile lad is obsessed with
the sexy lass and pesters his pal Appu for help in wooing Ruchi.
Unbeknownst to Ravi, however, Appu is madly in love with him. But she does not tell Ravi of her love and gamely goes about
helping him woo the girl of his dreams.
Appu even helps Ravi pen his billets-doux after realizing that his love letters are just plain awful.
A model in real life, Diya does an effective job, as the sexy girl with low skirts and an armada of boy friends. But it's the
cute-faced Nikita, who steals our hearts with her low-key performance.
The parallel comedy involving Ravi's mother and Ruchi's father is crude beyond words.
Ramyakrishnan's item number just doesn't fit into the movie at all. Come on, a dance number at the apartment association
Kurumbu is the remake of the Telugu film Allari, which also starred Naresh.
After watching the movie with us, a wag suggested that the movie might more aptly be named Korangu (which means monkey in
Tamil). - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
