Story : Krishna (PrabhuDeva) , a bachelor, who wishes to get married to a modern girl , but ends up marrying a normal village girl Devi (Tamannaah Bhatia). The newly married couple returns to Mumbai and rent out a house as Krishna feels ashamed to introduce his wife (who is a simple village girl) to his friends . Turns out the house is haunted by the ghost of it’s previous owner Ruby, an ambitious starlet. The ghost possesses Devi to fulfill her impending dream of becoming an actress. The predicament of Krishna forms the story.
Review : Do you remember Deepika Padukone’s iconic ghostly scene from Chennai Express (Thangabali) , that reminded us that there is scope for decent horror-comedies in Bollywood. The film shares that sentiment & dedicates an entire story to the genre, which is refreshing.
In this film , the horror leads to comedy as Ruby’s spirit randomly jumps in & out of Devi’s body, that keeps Krishna and the audience on it’s toes. It’s quite silly but the director’s modest approach towards the story works. As the story progresses , the horror comedy turns into a drama . Just like it’s the female protagonist and struggles with it’s multiple-personalities a little bit. In the end , the result turns out to be a fairly watchable film , that works for it’s honesty more than its entertainment value.
Boasting of a clean family humour, the director (Vijay) does not try too hard to please his audience . He gets brownie points for keeping things sweet & simple. The film doesn’t pretend to be smarter than it is and that’s a welcome relief. Also , the special effects in some scenes are impressive as well.
The gorgeous lead actress , Tamannaah slips in and out of her two different characters Ruby and Devi, effortlessly. She even matched her dance steps with the great Prabhu Deva . Though Prabhu Deva displays a good comic timing , the latter doesn’t have much to do except for acting surprised owing to his wife’s situation. The producer of the movie , Sonu Sood makes an extended cameo and gives a good performance. He does full justice to his superstar character .
To be honest , Tutak Tutak Tutiya is a fairly enjoyable film that can be watched on a family outing.
