Verdict: A horror-comedy that will tickle your funny bone.
Tutak Tutak Tutiya is a movie with a Punjabi title, directed by a South Indian director and made in three different languages. This combination makes the movie interesting on its own and what adds to it is the genre, horror-comedy.
The film is about Krishna (Prabhudheva), a 34-year-old, single, working professional in Mumbai. Hailing from a village in Coimbatore, his dream is to marry an ultra modern girl who speaks immaculate and fluent English. But due to some unavoidable circumstances he has to marry a traditional village girl Devi (Tamannaah Bhatia). Both of them come back to Mumbai after their marriage and Krishna is embarrassed of his wife and keeps her away from his friends and shifts to a new apartment. After a few days, he notices Devi behaving abnormally and finds out that she is possessed by the spirit of Ruby, who died in their apartment. Ruby was a struggling actress who committed suicide out of frustration and depression. Now she wants to use Devi's body to fulfill her dream of becoming an actress. Enter Raj Khanna (Sonu Sood), a superstar and an action hero. Rest is the struggle of Krishna trying to get back his wife and get rid of the ghost.
After eight Tamil movies in his credits, this movie is director A. L. Vijay's debut in the Hindi and Telugu film industry. In the world where Horrex is the in thing, this movie is like a new light breeze – Hormedy (Horror + Comedy). The film makes you laugh and has its own share of horror and drama too. Though the plot seems very promising for a horror flick, the horror part is not given much importance and the focus is humor. The first half of the movie is very interesting but the second half fails to impress much. One moment you feel that the movie is dragging and the other moment it ends, surprisingly. The horror elements make you laugh and scare you at the same time.
The music of the movie is a hit already, with songs like Tutak Tutak Tutiya and Rail Gaddi. The music is peppy and Prabhudheva dancing makes it a treat for the eyes too. Sajid-Wajid have done a fine job on their part. The songs are shot very well and special appearances by Amy Jackson and Esha Gupta add that extra glamor to it.
Prabhudheva's performance is a plus point of the movie. His dance is obviously something to look forward to and this time his acting is commendable too. Tamannaah Bhatia looks amazing as a gaon ki gori as well as the struggler's ghost. Sonu Sood's physique has been used well in the movie. One tiny yet very interesting character played by Murli Sharma makes you giggle too. All the performances score well on the scoreboard.
To sum it all, the movie is a decent one-time watch. It is simple, light and easy to follow. It is especially recommended for the comedy lovers because there are many moments that will make you laugh hard.
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
Prabhudheva fans need no reason to watch this movie, as he has his good share of dance performances and they are all excellent. Also, watch it for the performances, all the comedy and surprising cameos.
