Krishna (Prabhu Deva), a city bachelor, wishes to get married to a modern, English speaking girl but ends up with village belle Devi (Tamannaah). The newlyweds return to Mumbai and rent out a house as Krishna is too ashamed to introduce his desi wife to his friends. Turns out the house is haunted by the ghost of its previous owner Ruby, an ambitious starlet. She possesses Devi to fulfill her impending dream of becoming a popular actress. Krishna’s predicament forms the story.
Deepika Padukone’s iconic ghostly scene from Chennai Express – (Thangabali Kitavaradhe), reminded us that there is scope for decent horror-comedies in Bollywood. This film shares that sentiment and dedicates an entire story to the genre, which is refreshing.
Here, horror leads to comedy as Ruby’s spirit randomly jumps in and out of Devi’s body, keeping Krishna and the audience on its toes. It’s all quite silly but the director’s modest approach towards the story works. The repetition of funny scenes robs it of its glory though. As the story progresses, the horror comedy turns into a drama and like its female protagonist, struggles with its multiple-personalities a bit. The end result turns out to be a fairly watchable film that works for its honesty and harmlessness more than its entertainment value.
Boasting of a clean family humour, Vijay doesn’t try too hard to please his audience and gets brownie points for keeping things sweet and simple. The movie does not pretend to be smarter than it is and that's a welcome relief. The special effects in a particular scene are impressive as well.
The gorgeous Tamannaah, slips in and out of her two diverse characters Ruby and Devi, effortlessly. She even manages to match her dance steps with the great Prabhu Deva. Though he displays a good comic timing, the latter doesn’t have much to do except for acting surprised owing to his wife’s situation. Sonu Sood makes an extended cameo and renders a restrained performance. He does justice to his superstar character that is not caricaturish or clichéd.
Despite being a tad underwhelming, Tutak Tutak Tutiya is a fairly enjoyable film that can be watched on a family outing.
Our overall critics rating is not an average of the sub score below.
That’s the spirit
Also releasing as Devi in Tamil and Abhinetri in Telugu, this one is like that Sunday afternoon watch you never manage to complete for the inability to stay up. A film where every fall is accompanied with a laughter track and every punch with a ‘boing’ sound. Basically, stuff Priyadarshan has made a career of. But this one takes on horror comedies (the genre exploited by Great Grand Masti earlier this year) with a frivolous script that borders on idiocy. But given the title, you aren’t really expecting a noir.
A chauvinist matrimonial hopeless, Krishna Kumar (Prabhudheva) has only one desire: to marry a ‘modern girl’. While his concept of one is hazy, he has propositioned over 30 who fit the bill, only to be rejected. When his parents decide to get him hitched to a gaon ki gori Devi (Tamannaah Bhatia), he concedes after much opposition. The newlyweds move into a spooky apartment, which harbours the spirit of a struggling actress Ruby, who soon finds a medium in Devi. In her possessed state, Devi ditches her ragged saris for skimpy dresses and manages to pack in the thumkas. In one of her outings, her shenanigans catch the fancy of Bollywood superstar Raj Khanna (Sonu Sood) and he signs her on for his next film.
Will Devi ever manage to rid herself of Ruby? The answer is obvious but we’re assured only because Krishna forces her to sign a contract (which begins with, ‘Main, Ruby the bhoot, swear to…’) confirming that she would vacate Devi’s body once her dream is fulfilled.
Many will criticise the docile domesticated projection of Tamannaah’s character. Agreed her character brief was to cook, clean and passively accept her husband’s snide remarks. But that’s how such ‘comedies’ have always positioned female parts — often included in the script as a mere prop who hangs in the foreground, only to scope for novel ways to please the lead.
Watching a Prabhudheva film is an experience because he has the ability to translate beats into moves that evoke delight and surpass the laws of physics. He also takes to comedy with fluid ease. While the material offers little to work with, he manages to put up a show worth sitting through. A lot weighs on Tamannaah Bhatia here, given the dual avatars she dons, and she delivers convincingly in both. Sonu Sood, also the producer of the film, contributes with what he does best — going shirtless and playing a love-struck bonehead who is naive enough to be duped.
Why is this film called what it is? Apart from the iconic Punjabi number (which has an additional Tutak), we can’t find a sound enough reason.
If you’re one for typical South Indian dubbed films that play on loop on weekends, this one’s for you. Otherwise, wait for the satellite release.
एखाद्याने लग्नाविषयी पाहिलेले स्वप्न भंग व्हावे. त्यानंतरही त्याच्या आयुष्यात विचित्र असा प्रसंग यावा. भीती, काळजी आणि या साऱ्यापलीकडे जात भविष्याची चिंता यांना तोंड द्यायला लागावे. हे सगळे दिग्दर्शक ए. एल. विजय यांनी ‘तुतक तुतक तूतियाँ’ या चित्रपटातून दाखविले आहे.
कृष्णा (प्रभूदेवा) हा मुंबईमध्ये राहतो. अतिशय मॉडर्न मुलीशी लग्न व्हावे, ही त्याची इच्छा आहे. त्याची आजी आजारी पडते आणि तिची इच्छा म्हणून त्याला घरच्यांनी निवडलेल्या देवीशी (तमन्ना) लग्न करावे लागते. तो तिला घेऊन मुंबईला येतो. एक जवळचा मित्र सोडल्यास कार्यालयातील इतरांना या लग्नाची कल्पना तो देत नाही. आपले स्वप्न सोडून गावातील मुलीशी लग्न केल्याचे समजल्यास मित्र चेष्टा करतील, असे त्याला वाटत राहते. लग्न झाल्यामुळे तो आपल्या मित्राला एक घर शोधायला सांगतो. घर मिळते आणि तो देवीसह त्या घरी राहायला लागतो. त्या घरात रुबी नावाची हिंदी चित्रपटांत काम मिळवण्यासाठी धडपड करणारी मुलगी राहत असते. तिने आत्महत्या केलेली असते. या घरात कृष्णाला तिची जाणीव होते आणि त्याचे आयुष्य बदलून जाते. तो हिंदी चित्रपटांच्या संपर्कात येतो. राजीव (सोनू सूद) या स्टारच्या एका चित्रपटात त्याच एका विशिष्ट कारणाने गुंततो. येथे पूर्ण कथा सांगितली नाही, तरी ती लक्षात यावी.
कोणत्याची चित्रपटासाठी कथा आणि पटकथा हे भाग फार महत्त्वाचे असतात. भूत आहे, म्हणजे भीतीचा अनुभव आहे, तरीदेखील विनोद आहे, अशा प्रकारचा चित्रपट करताना या दोन गोष्टी महत्त्वपूर्णच ठरतात. हा चित्रपट येथे चांगले गुण कमावतो. कृष्णाचा त्रागा, त्याला बायको नकोशी होणे, रुबीचा प्रवेश, बायकोची वाटणारी काळजी, चित्रपटच्या शूटिंगवेळी होणारी उलाघाल या साऱ्यातून हे कथानक सहजतेने उलगडत जाते. प्रभूदेवा आहे, म्हणजे नृत्य असणारच. फक्त यामध्ये ते तेवढ्यापुरतेच आहे. स्वप्न दृश्यांमध्ये तो नाचून घेतो एवढेच. तंत्राच्या बाबतीतही हा चित्रपट चांगले गुण कमावतो. भूत असल्यामुळे काही गोष्टी घडणारच. रात्री टीव्ही पाहतानाच्या दृश्यात हे तंत्र समोर येते. कृष्णाच्या भीतीचा, त्याच्या परिस्थितीचा आपल्याला अंदाज येतो आणि त्या वेळी हसूही येते. येथे दिग्दर्शक आपल्याला अपेक्षित परिणाम साधताना दिसतो.
अभिनयाच्या पातळीवर तमन्ना ठीक. देवी आणि रूबी या दोन पातळ्यांवर ती बऱ्यापैकी वावरते. प्रभुदेवा त्याच्या मनातली उलाघाल आपल्यापर्यंत पोहोचविण्यात यशस्वी होतो. सोनू सूद नेहमीसारखा. एकूणात, हा चित्रपट भीतीतून मनोरंजन करण्याचा प्रयत्न करतो.
In an interview, Prabhu Dheva said that he found it amusing that he had to give his lines three times, once in Hindi, once in Tamil and once in Telugu for the three different versions of the film
Actor Sonu Sood turns producer with this film
Krishna (Prabhu Deva), a city bachelor, wishes to get married to a modern, English speaking girl but ends up with village belle Devi (Tamannaah) as his grandmother chooses her. The newlyweds return to Mumbai and rent out a house as Krishna is too ashamed to introduce his desi wife to his friends. Turns out the house is haunted by the ghost of its previous owner Ruby, an ambitious starlet. She possesses Devi to fulfill her impending dream of becoming a popular actress. Deviâs change in attitude surprises Krishna but he overlooks it. He takes her along to a film festival where to his shock she dances revealingly and calls herself Ruby. She attracts the attention of actor Raj Khanna (Sonu Sood). Krishna inquires about the house with his neighbours and to his shock he finds out about the past owner, a girl called Ruby (Tamannaah) who wanted to be an actress but failed eventually taking her life in depression. He finds out that his wife is possessed by Ruby. Ruby gets an acting offer from Raj Khanna and forces Krishna to make her attend every rehearsal. Eventually Krishna makes a deal with her to end this after one movie. Through the whole film making process which involves Krishna lying to Devi, Krishna begins to appreciate his wife and fall in love with her. Ruby and Krishna also become close friends. At the release of the movie Krishna praises Ruby for her acting. But Ruby betrays him and doesn't leave Devi's body as promised. Krishna tries to make her leave by exposing her in the press conference but she plays tricks on him. At that point Raj Kanna also proposes to her. She faints and is rushed to the hospital. The doctor reveals that she's pregnant with Krishna's child. Krishna also begs Ruby to leave her wife's body and she agrees. The couple lives happily ever after. While we see Ruby's name plate in a garbage bin disappear. Esha Gupta appears at the end, asking Raj Khanna for an autograph. It is implied that Ruby has now possessed Jennifer's (Guptaâs) body.
Horror comedy 'Tutak Tutak Tutiya' has received a poor response at the box office, with the film having collected just Rs 2.50 crore in first week. The film, starring Sonu Sood, Prabhudheva and Tamannaah Bhatia in lead roles, had opened with a surprisingly low collection of Rs 40 lakh.
Prabhu Deva trying again and again, he is a good dancer but its not necessary that he can run a movie on his behalf.
