One of the best i ve seen in the history of Tamil cinema
22 June 2015 | by K.v.praveen KumarSee all my reviews

Kakka Muttai one of the finest films ever made in Tamil film industry, the National award(for best children's film and child artist) given to this film is so totally justified.One moment i was having a hearty laugh and another moment in tears after watching the movie, i realised how blessed we people are and also very much sad that the editor of this movie MR.kishore te is no more he has done a wonderful job young talent taken away very soon. A BIG THANKS TO THE WHOLE TEAM OF KAKKA MUTTAI starting from director Mani, iswarya(who played the mother role), both the child artists(Ramesh & Vignesh) and Kudos to both Dhanush and vetrimaran for presenting this very simple yet beautiful film.when i decided to watch kakka muttai, i preffered to watch it from a very modest theatre and needless to say we have to adjust to a few settings like the evergreen BEEDI wielding smokers and KUDI MAGANGAL of our society but this time it was totally different After 30-40 mins in to the film.The man behind me who was a little bit drunk and constantly resorted to unnecessary hooting and clapping, suddenly become quiet and a few more moment i realised the whole cinema hall was quiet as if they were watching there own lives unfold in front of them in a BIG SCREEN.This is what good movies do to people no matter WHAT YOU ARE,WHO YOU ARE you get carried away
