Director Muthaiah’s Kutti Puli has everything you’d expect from a Sasikumar movie – a village backdrop, caste tensions, an uncouth lead who has the heart of gold and a pretty yet unassuming girl. Sasikumar, Lakshmi Menon and Saranya perform significant roles in this rural drama.
Thanks to the marketing and favorable release time, Kutti Puli has done rather well at the box office reaping in above average returns.
Sasikumar has developed a solid fan base and is steadily churning out movies to please them.

Debut director Muthaiah’s Kutti Puli is another drama set in a village where caste-related tensions are rife. Sasikumar, Lakshmi Menon and Saranya play lead roles.
Despite unfavorable reviews, Kuttipuli seems to be doing rather well at the box office with weekends reporting good attendance at the turnstiles. Turns out, the movie could easily reap the investment in another week.
The baby faced Lakshmi Menon is fast emerging as the safe bet for independent movies with about 4 movies in her datebook.
Ave Theatre occupancy (weekend) : 75%
Collection in Chennai (Weekend) : Rs. 1,49,17,275
Sasikumar brings back small town magic with Kuttipuli, directed by Muthaiah. The movie also has Saranya and Lakshmi Menon in the lead.
Opening to above average attendance in theatres, the movie is met with not so favorable reviews.
Excessive melodrama seems to have done the movie in.
