Director Vignesh Shivan’s Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal released today in cinemas and the fans can hardly keep their cool. The film has a stellar line-up in terms of cast, featuring Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara and Samantha Ruth Prabhu. This romantic comedy is a love triangle in which a man named Rambo falls in love with two women at the same time.
The teaser for the film was released on February 11 and got a massive response from the audience, with more than 5,20,000 likes. The film was also in news for its unique promotion strategy, for instance, its interpretation of a Bahubali 2 poster was much liked by the viewers. The lead trio could be seen striking Amarendra Bahubali and Devasena’s popular bow and arrow pose with their hands flashing two fingers.
In the film, Vijay Sethupathi plays the role of Rambo, who is in love with Khatija (Prabhu) and Kanmani (Nayanthara). Reportedly, the role of Khatija was first offered to Trisha Krishna but due to scheduling issues, she had walked out of the project.
Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal Review
This film marks the debut of Shweta Sabu Cyril, who is the daughter of the veteran Sabu Cyril. The film also features Kala Master, Redin Kingsley, Sreesanth, and Lollu Sabha Maaran, amongst others, while its music has been composed by Anirudh Ravichander.
While critics have called out the film’s alarming theme, which seems to advocate polyamory by showing a man marrying two women, they have also praised the performances of the lead actors. The verdict on Twitter, however, is different.
One user wrote, “Khatija & Kanmani (emoji)…biggest plus background score, bgm & song TharuMaru @VijaySethuOffl RAMBO 1st half (emoji) interval block (fire emoji) 2nd half Katija & Kanmani chair sequence @Samanthaprabhu2…A @vigneshShivN original.”
Another user wrote that the film is “blockbuster stuff,” adding, “Hilarious 1st half followed by extraordinary emotional 2nd half. Comeback for @VijaySethuOffl after 25+ disasters in recent 2-3 years. @Samanthaprabhu2 (emoji).”
A user named Rathina Prakash, who has claimed to be an actor in the social media bio, wrote, “Sound speaks wait the sound. That response for #Khatija @Samanthaparbhu2 Always a Queen.” The person also shared a snippet of the audience’s response to the film’s opening.
But another user pointed out that it can get quite monotonous, they wrote, “If it rains it doesn’t mean that it has to pour…#KaathuvaakulaRenduKaadhal, even sethupathi gets monotonous.”
In conclusion, people were appreciative of the music and viewers could not stop talking about Prabhu’s acting in the film as Khatija. Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal can be seen only in cinemas. There is no information on when it will be available for viewing on OTT.
