Kuttey (2023)

A van transporting millions of rupees. On a rainy night in the outskirts of Mumbai, three separate gangs, unaware of each other, cross paths as they pursue a common objective. Unfortunately, they all have the same plan. Will they succeed in their endeavor or will their greed be their downfall?

Everyone is armed with guns, firing relentlessly, and blood is splattered everywhere. The atmosphere is dark, gruesome, and strangely humorous. Kuttey could have easily suffered from the pitfall of having too many characters, but the screenplay skillfully introduces one bloodthirsty character after another, portrayed by talented actors such as Tabu, Arjun Kapoor, Kumud Mishra, Radhika Madan, among others. This thriller keeps the audience intrigued, eager to witness the fate of these individuals. Rooted in themes of corruption, greed, and the insatiable lust for money, Kuttey convincingly portrays the varied motivations behind everyone’s actions.

Directed by debutant Aasmaan Bhardwaj, Kuttey maintains its quirky tone from start to finish. The narrative is cleverly divided into four parts, including an epilogue and three chapters titled “Sabka Maalik Ek,” “Aata Kya Canada,” and “Moong Ki Daal.” Initially, these titles may seem puzzling, but as the story unfolds, their significance becomes apparent.

In the ensemble cast, it’s easy to find a favorite, with Tabu standing out at the top. The talented actress embodies Pammi’s eccentricities, making her character immensely likable. Surrounded by treacherous and bloodthirsty men, she stands as the only fearless boss lady, delivering expletive-laden dialogues and providing much-needed comic relief. As always, Tabu’s performance is pitch-perfect and effortless. Naseeruddin Shah, Konkana Sen Sharma, Radhika Madan, Shardul Bharadwaj, and Kumud Mishra make the most of their limited screen time. Arjun Kapoor, in the role of the amoral Gopal, has more substantial involvement, and he delivers a sincere performance, although a bit more variety in his expressions would have been welcomed.

“Kuttey” isn’t a deeply profound and flawlessly executed satire. Instead, it is an immensely entertaining amalgamation of guns, goons, and colorful language that captivates its audience.

Had there been no cinema, then this SharmaJiKaLadka would have died long ago. Out of food, sex and cinema this guy would always choose Cinema even if he would die virgin due to starvation.
