Kalakalappu 2 is the sequel to Kalakalappu (2012), though it has a different storyline. Directed by Sundar.C, this movie is a commercial entertainer. When it comes to commercial movies, directors Hari and Sundar.C are the names which come to our mind. After the tremendous success of Kalakalappu, the expectations for this movie were very high. Usually there are many characters in Sundar.C’s movies and he introduces each character in an interesting way. This movie also does the same. Jiiva and Jai play the lead roles in the movie. They are soon joined by Sathish, Yogi Babu, Shiva, Robo Shankar, Mano Bala, Catherine Tresa, Nikki Galrani and Ramdas. Sundar.C makes sure that there is no boring moment in the film by introducing these characters and providing some slapstick comedy scenes for them. The second half of the movie has some rib-tickling moments after the introduction of actor Shiva. The sequence where Jai and Jiiva chase Mano Bala and Robo Shankar gets caught in the middle is reminiscent of a similar scene in Kalakalappu 1. The dosage of humour in this movie is double than that of the prequel.
On the flip side, the first half of the movie is bit dragging. However, the comedy scenes in the second half make up for it, which overshadows the negative aspects. Hip Hop Tamizha’s music and editing are an added advantage to this movie. Though the movie has lots of glamour, Sundar.C has handled it well and does not make us cringe in any scene of the movie. There are lots of logic mistakes in the movie, but you cannot find even a single one in it. Because, this movie will make you happy and entertained after a stressful day at work. Leave with a smile on your faces after watching this movie!
Rating: 3.5 / 5
The first day box office collection is 0.51 crore. Actor Jiiva’s last release Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thora’s first day collection was 0.20 crore and Kavalai Vendam’s collection was 0.23 crore. Actor Jai’s last release Balloon’s first day collection was 0.14 crore. Compared to these movies, Kalakalappu 2’s box office collection is more. Sundar.C’s direction has been appreciated and there are positive reviews everywhere. Full occupancy is seen in almost all the theatres. Seems like Kalakalappu 2 is all set to become a superhit.
