There are films which moves you, there are films which gives you a message, there are films which makes you sit and think, and then there are films which are made just for the purpose of one and only one thing. Entertainment! Weirdly titled Tutak Tutak Tutiya falls in that category. The film is directed by the director of various Tamil films A.L. Vijay aka Vijay. This is his first hindi film. The film stars Prabhudheva, Sonu Sood and Tamannaah in the lead role. This film also marks the debut of Sonu Sood as a film producer. The trailers of the film were plain bland and the promotion was mainly focused on the two chartbuster tracks makers have reused in the film. It has basically zero buzz. So is the film worth a watch?
The film tells the story of a South Indian man named Krishna (Prabhudheva), who lives in Mumbai and wants to marry a modern girl, a girl who can speak perfect English without any errors. Director Vijay makes this evident from the first scene itself. Due to circumstances he is forced to marry a village girl called Devi (Tamannaah). They together shift to a flat in Mumbai. Krishna is ashamed of her and tries to shoo her back to the village. Until he sees a different side of her, a much modern one, the kind he always wanted to marry but there is a catch! The flat he moves in is haunted and Devi’s sudden makeover is due to the fact that she is possessed by the ghost called Ruby. Also there is superstar Raj Khanna(Sonu Sood), who is in love with Ruby. Who is Ruby? What does Ruby want? What does Raj has to do with Ruby? Or is there actually a ghost? Or is Devi playing a prank on Krishna? For that you have to watch the movie. But the most important question is, if movie is worth your time and money? Let’s find out…
What’s hot
It’s a Prabhudheva show from start to finish. He is bit awkward in the first scene but gets his groove and shines throughout. His comic timing is amazing and he is believable in emotional scenes. He is the life of this horror comedy. Tamannaah plays her part perfectly. Her voice modulation is good and she showcases the two character personalities with perfect ease. The comedy scenes are actually funny and director Vijay handles them well. Special mention has to be given to ever dependent Murli Sharma who is top notch as Sonu Sood’s manager. The film never takes itself too seriously, which works in its favour. The story by Vijay and Paul Aron holds your attention for the most part and is intriguing. The dialogues by Chintan Gandhi are funny.
What’s not
Sonu Sood doesn’t bring anything new to the table. His character of a superstar, who is in live with Ruby is a weak one dimensional character. He is playing a done to death good guy. His character has nothing new to offer apart from showcasing chiseled body and action scenes. Also his role should have been termed as a special appearance rather than a full fledged as he is hardly there in the first half of the film. The music of the film is a big problem. There are songs and they are plain bland. Apart from the title track and rail gaddi (both of which are rehashed version of chartbuster punjabi tracks). The movie builds itself up well to a sudden bland climax. The climax in fact plays the spoilsport here. Also, I understand the film is a trilingual but the dubbing was bad in some scenes. And one question, though, to Sonu Sood is; why such a shitty title to this horror comedy? It just doesn’t makes sense.
What to do
I went for it with zero expectations and enjoyed it for the most part. The film is like those dubbed south Indian films you enjoy on TV. The film is illogical but no one’s complaining. Hard nosed intellectuals should stay away. The film is a 126 minutes of entertainment. It’s the kind of film you watch, enjoy and forget. Overall the film is entertaining. I am going with earnest three out five. Go in and enjoy the film.
