Williams (Aruldoss), a Railway Protection Force (RPF) officer, decides to be strict to passengers flouting rules, as he is upset that people don’t give much respect to railway cops.
He instructs his subordinates to take stringent action against those who cross railway tracks, urinate at railway property, travel without ticket etc.
Accordingly, the cops arrest a bunch of men for violating rules and the list includes Sathya (Sachin Mani), who is on his way to Puducherry, to marry his girlfriend, Meghala (Nandita Swetha).
As he narrates his story to other commuters who were in custody, they decided to help him out. Are they successful in their attempt or not? Is Sathya able to join hands with Meghala?
We wonder whether any other filmmaker had used such a backdrop in Kollywood earlier. Kudos to director Balaiya Rajasekhar on this front. Also, he has loaded the movie with interesting elements such as comedy and romance.
Sachin delivers a neat performance, while Nandita Swetha is apt for her role. Senrayan, Manobala, Mayilsamy and Arunraja Kamaraja have done their respective jobs well.
Music and other departments are okay. On the flipside, the romantic side could have been more interesting and the screenplay could have been better.
On the whole, Kathiruppor Pattiyal is a decent entertainer which will make you smile at many places. But you should be ready to bear few logical lapses.
