Producer Hansraj may actually have read Enid Blyton and others, once upon a loooong time. “Ku..Ku...” a largely family affair, brings to mind several classics, but only at the beginning. Vicky (Master Vijay) and Vinu (Baby Vanita) are doted on by their parents, who are forced to go to London to solve a business problem. However, they do not reach their destination as their relative, MLA Bhyra (Sagar Nagbhushan) is after their wealth to feed his CM dreams.
The children escape in the nick of time, following their uncle’s advice. Goons dog their heels and brother and sister are separated. How does the boy manage to reunite with his sister and bring the evil MLA to justice is what Ku..Ku... is all about.
The beauty of the film lies in its ability to keep things simple. However, atrocious acting and absence of logic lets it down. Master Vijay is a find and Baby Vanita is confident. Songs undo all that C Dhanapalan’s camera achieves. For a newcomer, this is an average fare but the redeeming factor is that the kids are not made to appear like adults all the time. Except in the tacky number “Ku..Ku...” raising concerns about child “over”use.
The acoustics is a strain on the ear. Those in charge of Kapali must also take note that it is high time the theatre was revived-one of the largest single screen theatres in the city is in worse condition than a BBMP dumpyard.
