Koogle Kuttappa Movie Review

The Tamil remake of the 2019 Malayalam rural sci-fi film Android Kunjappan Ver 5.25 takes a very broad, high-pitched approach to the story beats of the original.

Subramani (KS Ravikumar) is a curmudgeonly, very conservative widower who wants his son Adithya (Tharshan), a robotic engineering graduate, to be by his side at all times. When he receives an offer to work for a robots corporation in Germany, the latter rebels. Adithya finally brings home a prototype robot to look after his father after none of the caretakers last long due to Subramani’s cantankerous attitude.

After initially resenting it, Subramani gradually grows fond of Kuttappa, as the machine is termed by the villagers, and eventually becomes obsessively devoted, considering it as his own son. Adithya, horrified by the hazards posed by the robot, returns home to warn his father, but will he be able to persuade the old man before it is too late?

While, for the most part, Android Kunjappan unfolded as a slice-of-life film (a Malayalam cinema speciality), Koogle Kuttappa’s directors, Sabari and Saravanan, paint every plot development (including the less-than-convincing turns the story takes in the final portions) and emotion in broad strokes, turning the film into a loud rural drama. While the producers may have done this to make the picture more accessible to audiences in the United States, it appears that this technique has resulted in the film becoming a generic village-set film, which we see in Tamil cinema every month.

Furthermore, given the increased exposure to various content that viewers now have as a result of the OTT explosion, it is time for filmmakers to start trusting the public more and making films that are unique and not generic. Which, alas, does not occur here. Yogi Babu is performing his normal act of being mocked and mocking others. We get a generic duet and a basic folk number; we get to watch Marimuthu and Suresh Chandra Menon portray villainous characters once more, the former as an arrogant government officer in the countryside and the latter as a selfish and callous businessman in Germany.

This has the effect of making the film less moving. Yes, the plot goes quickly, but aside from a couple of passages (such as Subramani’s dinner table speech to Adithya), nothing sticks with us after the film ends. And, with the exception of KS Ravikumar, who portrays Subramani’s equally aggravating and appealing qualities to a large extent, the other performances barely register.

Tharshan does little to make us sympathize with Adithya’s suffering as a young man split between his father’s respect and his goal, while Losliya, who portrays Adithya’s fiancée, is purely utilitarian. Even the subplot featuring Subramani’s former flame fails to captivate us. It’s the scenes between Subramani and Kuttappa that keep us interested, as it’s interesting to watch this weird couple get closer.
