Muthina Kathirikai is set in a rural backdrop. It is a remake of Malayalam hit movie Vellimoonga, which had Biju Menon and Nikki Galrani in the leads. 40-year old Muthupandi (Sundar C)’s struggle to find a suitable girl for marriage ends after he fell in love with Maya (Poonam Bajwa). She is a 20-year old and happens to be the daughter of his ex-crush (Kiran).
Her father had issues with Muthupandi and this becomes a hurdle for the couple’s relationship. On the other hand, elections are announced and he is set to contest against his rivals Bullet Marudhu (VTV Ganesh) and Vanjinathan (Singampuli). What happens next should be seen on-screen.
The story revolves around a middle-aged politician played by Sunder C. This rambling character with his owlish eyes gets a taste of the real significance of the white kadhar through some situations that he has to encounter. These situations actually act as a catalyst for his political and personal growth. The performance of the cast is quite brilliant. Sunder C is tailor-made for the role. Events relating to his real life. song are all hilarious. The character suits him to the tee. Poonam Bajwa is perfect in his role. Sundar C and Poonam Bajwa have wonderfully executed the comic sequences, with the timings perfect and expressions not over the top.
