Despite all the mishaps and triumphs that mark Kuttimama’s life, this film is hardly any reason for celebration. V M Vinu’s ‘Kuttimama’ gradually and incompetently builds a hero; and by the final scene that we had talked about at the beginning of the review, the crafting, as mundane as it appears, is complete.
The jumps and bumps that are expected in a film that falls into this genre are far from sight in ‘Pretham 2’. A jaded horror thriller with none of the fiery thrills, Ranjith Shankar’s ‘Pretham 2’ talks of a troubled spirit that barely leaves you in good spirits.
An honourable try without doubt, but one which is strangely superficial, ‘Vimaanam’ strives to be exuberant, but turns out to be sluggish instead. A film that has its heart all over the place, this is an airplane that takes a while to take off, and which when it finally does, struggles to smoothly touch ground again.
