There are films that move you and then there are films which give you a message. There are also films that makes you sit and think, and then there other films which is made just for entertainment! Titled Tutak Tutak Tutiya falls in that last category. The film is directed by Tamil cinema's famed filmmaker A.L. Vijay aka Vijay. This is his first Hindi film and it stars Prabhudheva, Sonu Sood and Tamannaah in the lead role. This film also marks the debut of Sonu Sood as a film producer. Is the film worth a watch?
What's it about
The film tells the story of a South Indian man named Krishna (Prabhudheva), who lives in Mumbai and wants to marry a modern girl, a girl who can speak perfect English without any errors. Director Vijay makes this evident from the first scene itself. Due to circumstances he is forced to marry a village girl called Devi (Tamannaah). They together shift to a flat in Mumbai. Krishna is ashamed of her and tries to shoo her back to the village. Until he sees a different side of her, a much modern one, the kind he always wanted to marry but there is a catch! The flat he moves in is haunted and Devi's sudden makeover is due to the fact that she is possessed by the ghost called Ruby. Also there is superstar Raj Khanna (Sonu Sood), who is in love with Ruby. Who is Ruby? What does Ruby want? What does Raj have to do with Ruby? Or is there actually a ghost? Or is Devi playing a prank on Krishna? For that you will have to watch the movie. But the most important question is, if movie is worth your time and money? Let's find out...
It's a Prabhudheva show from start to finish. He is bit awkward in the first scene but gets his groove and shines throughout. His comic timing is amazing and he is believable in emotional scenes. He is the life of this horror comedy. Tamannaah plays her part perfectly. Her voice modulation is good and she shifts between her two strikingly different personalities with ease. The comedy scenes are actually funny and director Vijay handles them well. Special mention has to be given to ever dependent Murli Sharma who is top notch as Sonu Sood's manager. The film never takes itself too seriously, which works in its favour. The story by Vijay and Paul Aron holds your attention for the most part and is intriguing. The dialogues by Chintan Gandhi are funny.
Sonu Sood doesn't bring anything new to the table. His character of a superstar, who is in love with Ruby is a weak and one dimensional. He is playing a done to death good guy. Apart from showcasing chiseled body in the action scenes the actor has very little to offer. Also his role should have been termed as a special appearance rather than a full fledged one as he is hardly there in the first half of the film. The music of the film is a big problem. There are songs and they are bland. Apart from the title track and Rail Gaddi (both of which are rehashed version of chartbuster Punjabi tracks). The movie builds itself up well to a sudden dry climax. It is the climax that is majorly messed up. Also, I understand the film is a trilingual but the dubbing was terrible in some scenes.
What to do
Coz I went for this film with zero expectations, I enjoyed it for most part. The film is like those dubbed south Indian films you enjoy on TV. It is illogical but no one's complaining. Hard nosed intellectuals should stay away. The film has 126 minutes run time and it's entertaining. It's the kind of film you watch, enjoy and forget. I am going with earnest three out five. Go in and enjoy the film.
