Joining the list of new filmmakers who makes their debut on big screen is K I Ranjith. His Kozhi Koovuthu is out. It speaks about romance between a honest and upright poor boy and a rich girl. Status comes as hurdle in their romance. Did they join together forms the climax.
Ashok of Muruga fame plays the lead role. He is cool and bubbly and as poor guy who makes his livelihood selling chicken, he sparkles. Seeja ravi, a newcomer is the heroine. The movie boasts of a huge star cast including Rohini, Bose Venkat, Naren, Mayilsamy among others.
Kumaresan (Ashok) comes across Thulasi (Seeja Rose) and its romance straightaway. Kumaresan is pampered by his mother Valliammal (Rohini). The hurdle for their love is Iyyanar (Bose Venkat), Thulasi's uncle.
Iyyanar decides to kill Kumaresan. Amidst such opposition does the lover couple unite or not, forms the crux. Ashok hogs all limelight and does chip in with his best. Rohini, Naren and Mayilsamy deserves special mention.
Kozhi Koovuthu is a repeated storyline. We had seen it many times, but ranjith gives it a different colour and flavour.
