Kuttey Movie Review: : Kuttey has been released in the theatres and while it is just another addition to the plethora of films releasing this week, this one is particularly special as it marks the debut of Aasmaan Bhardwaj who’s the son of Vishal & Rekha Bhardwaj.
However, strictly speaking about the film, from the trailer it did look like it carries that aura that Vishal Bhardwaj films usually do. Not only that, it has a lot of known actors such as Naseeruddin Shah, Tabu, Konkona Sen Sharma, and more.
Everything takes place on one rainy night when three gangs unknowingly cross paths in pursuit of the very same thing and that is a security van that carries cash for ATM’s. Those three gangs include one of Arjun Kapoor who is a recently suspended Police Officer and needs exactly 1 Cr to come back to duty. Another one is of Kumud Mishra along with Tabu, in which Kumud Mishra’s character has also been suspended alongside Arjun Kapoor’s and Tabu is in it for a life of leisure.
The third gang is of Radhika Madan and her lover who are trying to elope to Canada and need money fast. How these three come together on that fateful night and who gets the money and how everything turns out is what the film is about.
The film moves in a chapter-wise format where we get to see various incidents that come together to make the whole film. The character introductions have been done with finesse and the storyline is quite effective in conveying the whole message and motive of their participation in the forthcoming heist. The film is 112 minutes long which is a short runtime as compared to the current films.
However, it grows on you after some time. It is unable to grasp the attention and immerse right from the start but it does grow on you after the second half and the ending is quite an ironic one, nothing that you wouldn’t expect from the Bhardwaj’s.
The screenplay and direction have been done by the debutant Aasmaan Bhardwaj and we can say, they’re done quite nicely. But one thing that can be pointed out is the language used in the film which felt like if it wasn’t there, the scene should’ve been fine and the intimate song between Radhika Madan along with Shardul also felt like something not needed and maybe those things made the film get an ‘A’ Certificate.
The cast has done their jobs nicely, especially Tabu, she played the intense and comic side of her character beautifully.
Final Verdict: 2.5/5
“Kuttey isn’t something that is so good that you’d want to recommend it to everyone but it is definitely watchable.”
