After Mynaa, director Prabhu Solomon comes up with another engaging fare that is engaging and entertaining. The movie produced by director N Lingusamy and Subash Chandra Bose and presented by Studio Green,
speaks about a man's love for his pet (elephant) and his struggle to catch the hand of his beloved.
Prabhu Solomon made a successful foray to forst with Mynaa. Now his Kumki too is set in dense forest. Kumki means a trained elephant used to rive away wild jumbos in forests.
The story is written in such a way that a mahout along with his elephant come on a mission to a village and eventually end up romancing a girl in the tribal land. With catchy music by D Imman and stunning visuals by Sugumar, Kumki looks big and beautiful.
Bomman (Vikram Prabhu) is mahout and his pet elephant come to Aadhi Kaadu where the people have their own set of rules and culture. The frequent attacks by a wild elephant kills many in the village and all hope that manickam drive away the wild elephant.
Bomman falls for the village head's daughter Alli (Lakshmi Menon). The wild elephant enters their field and now the climax unfolds.
Vikram Prabhu makes a good start. He gets going well and his bonding with elephant is cutely screened.
Lakshmi Menon plays a good role while Thambi Ramiah walks away with applause in the role of Bomman's uncle.
All said, the movie is little slow and predictable towards the end.
