Ranasingam (Sathyaraj) and his wife (Viji Chandrasekar) are parents to five daughters. Upset over not having a son, he marries another woman (Bhanupriya) and becomes father to Gunasingam (Karthi).
Karthi is the apple of the eye of the family and he grows up to become a farmer, thanks to his love towards agriculture. He makes farming a profitable venture.
Two girls from his own family (Priya Bhavanishankar and Arthana) want to marry Gunasingam. Parents of the girls too are with the same expectations. But fate has other plans.
Gunasingam falls in love with another girl (Sayyeshaa) and this creates a lot of problems in the family. Outsiders who always don’t like Gunasingam want to make use of the opportunity.
Did Gunasingam succeed in his love? A devout family man, is he able to keep his family members intact or not forms the rest of Kadaikutty Singam.
Karthi seems to be a man on the mission. Besides entertaining the audience, he also delivers messages in association with director Pandiraj. Sathyaraj, Bhanupriya and Viji Chandrasekar show their experience on screen.
All the three heroines are beautiful, but they don’t have much say in this script which has a lot of stars in it. Suri is a welcome relief whenever the story gets emotional.
Pandiraj has taken in his hands a beautiful family story set in rural backdrop. He has infused many elements that convey important messages about farming and family bonding.
Music by D Imman, especially songs, are good. While Velraj’s cinematography has captured the colourful village locales with all their pristine and unpolluted beauty.
Though certain scenes make us feel like watching a mega serial, Kadaikutty Singam is a rare movie which speaks loads about unity and agriculture, but without getting preachy and without losing entertainment values.
