It has always amazed me why Tamil cinema in all these years couldn’t tap into the adult comedy space, except for few films that have sporadically used the genre as a tool to merely attract youngsters. One of the best examples was Gautham Karthik-starrer Hara Hara Mahadevaki, which was aggressively promoted as an adult comedy, but couldn’t rise above occasional dialogues filled with double entendres.
However, Gautham Karthik’s latest outing Irruttu Arrayil Murattu Kuthu, from the same team that made Hara Hara Mahadevaki, doesn’t repeat the mistakes as it succeeds in delivering to audiences what it promised right from the first day.
Whether the film is good or bad is debatable, but full credit goes to director Santhosh and his team for going all guns blazing this time. The story is set in a bungalow in Bangkok where two couples come for a holiday. They decide to use the trip to get to know each other, unaware that the bungalow is haunted by a sex-starved ghost. The events that follow form the crux of the story.
The film is filled with boner jokes, slutty ghost jokes, I’m-still-a-virgin jokes, homosexual jokes and the list goes on. If you’ve passively followed adult comedies that are made in the West, what you see here doesn’t even qualify as adult comedy. But, given that Tamil audiences haven’t seen anything as A-centric as this ever, the film works to a great extent.
There’s ample skin show and what’s laudable is that the film and its makers don’t restrict themselves. All the three heroines don’t have much to do in terms of performance, but give audiences a glam fest to remember for a long time. The homosexual angle is again used disappointingly, merely to evoke a few laughs which work on a few occasions.
