Rangarajan (R Parthiepan) is a differently abled call taxi driver who does real estate to earn extra income. He and his wife Mohini (Parvathy Nair) are cartakers of a bungalow.
One day, when he receives a customer Kevin (Shanthanu Bhagyaraj) at the airport, he learns that the latter wants to stay in a ‘homely atmosphere’.
Rangarajan takes him to the bungalow and asks Mohini to take care of Kevin’s needs. As Rangarajan is an alcoholic too, he is unable to satisfy his wife. Hence, sparks fly between Kevin and Mohini.
What happens next is told in a leisurely fashion (despite the film running for just 2 hours and 5 mintues) and there is an unexpected twist in the climax.
The meaning for Parthiepan in Kollywood dictionary is difference and Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga is no different. The filmmaker-actor has tried to merge multiple genres into one story.
His character fires double entendre dialogues at audience and they work at places. This is a comeback movie for Shanthanu, and he has done well. Parvathy Nair fits well to the role. Thambi Ramaiah as Parthiepan’s manager is good.
Music is by C Sathya is a major plus, while cinematographer Arjun Jena’s camera angles are apt. On the flipside, characters lack chemistry and Parthiepan could have infused more pace.
