Storyline

Bomman (Vikram Prabhu) a mahout and his pet elephant Manickam make a living out of performing in temples and film shootings. He is assisted by his uncle (Thambi Ramaiah) a drunkard and wastrel. Due to certain circumstances, they find themselves in a remote village protecting the villagers from a wild heard of elephants. Bomman knows that Manickam is not a trained Kumki elephant who can take on or stop the attack of the wild elephants. However he does not care as by then he has fallen madly in love with the village chieftain's daughter Alli (Lakshmi Menon). Meanwhile the villagers treat him like their saviour, as the wait begins for the wild elephant on rampage. Written by Karthik

As beautiful as the location shot in
28 December 2012 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

Kumki has fast become one of the many memorable movies of contemporary Tamil cinema.

Vikram Prabhu has done justice to the role. His 'Bomman' is portrayed with an integrity that remains concrete through the movie. Lakshmi Menon as 'Alli' does not have a huge role to play and is not as impressive as veteran actresses but is acceptable all the same. The comedy track with Thambi Ramaiah does get predictable and grates towards the end of the movie. Manickam does not disappoint!

That said and done the script is handled with surprising brilliance, apart from the comedy actually. The direction, music and special effects are beautiful. The location the film is shot in is very well incorporated into the film and brings to the movie a sense of realism that very few movies can capture.

A definite must watch for connoisseurs of good and worthwhile Cinema. Definitely a feather in our cap!
