The filmmaking lacks the zaniness that such a screwball premise requires and the TV serial-like visuals take some time getting used to.

Synopsis: A minister tries to stash his illegal Rs 100 crore in an offshore bank account through a hawala broker, but a number of petty thieves plot to steal the cash.

Review: In these times of demonetisation, Kanla Kaasa Kattappa feels topical, even if ‘Major’ Gowtham uses black money mainly as a McGuffin to keep his plot going. The plot involves a minister who approaches a hawala broker to transfer his ill-gotten Rs 100 crore into an offshore bank account. The broker’s man, Jack (Vichu Viswanath) goes to Malaysia to make this transfer. There, various individuals come to know of the money he has and decide to loot him individually. This includes Jai (Aravind Akash) and his grandfather Chinnapayan (MS Bhaskar), who are trying to prevent their ancestral house from changing hands; Madhurima (Ashwathi), a small-time thief, who they mistakenly kidnap once; Shaalu (Chandini), a club singer who is a contact of the broker; and, a don (Kalyan) and his sidekick Kettavan (Yogi Babu). All these people are bumbling characters who are down on luck and desperate to catch a break, one way or the other.

The filmmaking lacks the zaniness that such a screwball premise requires and the TV serial-like visuals take some time getting used to. The pacing, too, feels slow for a film that is basically one madcap chase. You can’t help but imagine how someone like Sundar C would have run away with such a juicy plot. But, for a debutant, Gowtham, who has scripted the film based on a story by SGS, is surefooted in narrating this tale and keeps the story moving with hardly any distractions. And he is ably supported by his actors, all of whom chip in with competent performances. The in-form Yogi Babu, particularly, is terrific and makes us break into a laugh every time he appears on screen.
