One of the movies releasing in B Town is Tutak Tutak Tutiya, which is also releasing in South Indian cinema with different names Devi and Abinetri in Tamil and Telugu languages. The film falls under the category of Horror-Comedy, which promise to entertain a wide range of audience this Friday on the eve of Dushera. The film is directed and written by AL Vijay while it is produced by Prabhudheva and others under the banner of Prabhu Deva Studios. The film has Prabhu Deva, Sonu Sood, Tamannah and Murali Sharma in the lead roles, while Farah Khan, Amy Jackson and Esha Gupta will be seen in the guest appearance roles. The music comes from Sajid-Wajid who has given seven footing songs. Shah Rukh Khan is the voiceover in the film, while time to dig in deep to get the crux of the film as under:
The film has a man called Krishna Kumar who aspires to go to Mumbai and make something big in the career of dance in B Town. He also aspires to marry a modern and gorgeous girl from Bombay, however, soon you find another twist in the story. He has his own simpleton wife whom he has more to her than he meets the eye. In a sense the story of the film resembles to the horror comedy film of B Town called Great Grand Masti that is released this year. His wife is seen coming in different avatar at different point of time and can appear to be at different places at the very same time.
Prabhudeva is back with another fun loving and horror based film, which is not just releasing in Hindi but also in the south Indian languages. If you check the earlier films of AL Vijay, it really failed to do well over the box office. Hence he is eyeing to get a comeback with this. However, with such a light hearted horror cum comedy film the makers have failed to give the right content to the audience, which can really help in shaping up the story the right way. Though the film promised too many things but at the end of the day it has less to disseminate to the audience making a bad blend before them and turning things the wrong way. The first half of the film appears to be the usual story unlike seen in many other movies, however, the second half seems vague and become too predictable for people who are keen to catch the film.
Talking about the star performances, let’s talk about Prabhu Deva first, he is an ace dancer who is also treading a good path when it comes to acting as well. However, he has to develop par to the conventional actors provided if he is thinking of competing with the same. The others in the film like Sonu Sood came up with a nice comedy but he seemed lagging behind in other spaces that has to be worked hard in due course of time for the actor. Now, heading to the other actor Tammannah she is more to glamorize and flare up the glam quotient though she has failed in some way to the other. Others also have tried to do things better though have been lagging behind in one or the way to others.
Direction, Music and other elements
The direction isn’t that par from A L Vijay, as he has failed to sell out the content of the film the way it wanted to do things par. He seems lagging behind in putting across the story of the film right plus synchronizing the talents and skills of the actors suited for the character. The music is okay and so are the other elements including photography, locations, lyrics, dialogues and screenplay. However, these elements failed to add much entertainment values to the film.
Tutak Tutak Tutiya The Last Word
The film falls under the category of light hearted comedy with the added element of horror in it, however, the combination of these elements found in the film has in many ways hampered the film to a great extent. This has therefore hampered the film in big ways hampering the entertainment value of the movie. Let’s see how the audience would take the film but looking at the current plight of the movie, the film has lost its gleam giving a low rating for sure.
Rating – 2.5
