Matti Kusthi Movie Review

Matti Kusthi/ Gatta Kusthi is a tamil-telugu bilingual drama starring Vishnu Vishal and Aishwarya Lekshmi in the lead pair. The movie released today in both languages Tamil and Telugu. Let’s take a look at the review.

Story: Keerthi (Aishwarya Lekshmi) is a small-town girl, who completes her graduation and is a professional wrestler. Due to her circumstances, she gets married to Veera (Vishnu Vishal), who is a carefree guy in the village. Keerthi’s parents convince her to get married to Veera by holding her wrestling dreams. Veera is unaware of all the truth behind it and gets married to Keerthi believing she is uneducated and have a long hair. He is completely unaware of her wrestling life. What happens when Veera knows the actual truth about Keerthi is the crux of the story.

Analysis: The movie is a tug-of-war between women and men. Based on the true women empowerment concept with added comedy. The film is refreshing and doesn’t have too many things at the same time and making it easy for a common audience to understand. The film has much-added mass content. Telugu audiences might not enjoy these mass elements. Director Chella Ayyavu focus only on key slots and ended up successful. The first half is full of entertainment and the interval bang is same as expected by revealing the facts about Keerthi to Veera.

Interesting premieres at theatres & on OTT this weekend

Lengthy gender discussion dialogues are enjoyable. Chella Ayyavu has sensible creativity, which leads him to present the scenes with dignity. With more entertainment, another part of the film’s emotional content was ignored and exposed in a light heart manner. Pre-climax scenes and Veera learning Gatta Kusthi in 15 days are dramatic. With below par second half, the movie is passable. Justin Prabhakar has given the best background score.

Positives :

  • Vishnu Vishal and Aishwarya Lekshmi (Casting)
  • Script work
  • Negatives :

  • Lag in Second Half
  • Few cinematic moments
  • Lack of Villainism.
  • Performances: Vishnu Vishal and Aishwarya Lekshmi are proven, actors. Their acting skills helped the film. The movie is a female-oriented film and Vishnu Vishal has taken the guts to play the lead role against Aishwarya Lekshmi. Family pressure with individuality was carried very sensibly by Aishwarya. Stunt choreography is really impressive. Climax fight sequences were written and taken beautifully. Cinematographer Richard M Nathan has presented the film colourfully on screen with a few slow-motion shots. Ajay was just a commercial villain and he got no scope to show his acting skill. For Aishwarya Lekshmi this will be the best role, She carried all the emotions beautifully on screen ( as a wrestler, educated, uneducated, short hair, long hair, housewife and an independent daughter). This is definitely marked as the best role for the actress to date.

    Verdict: A passable film with a very sensible storyline.
