Dhanush and Jawahar Mithran together have earlier worked together in couple of remakes ‘Yaaradi Nee Mohini’ and ‘Kutty’. With one of them being a grand success and another as an average fare, the duo is back in action with yet another remake entertainer. ‘Uthama Puthiran’ is a remake of yesteryear Telugu blockbuster titled ‘Ready’. The Tamil remake proves to be an excellent family entertainer laced with romance, comedy, family, sentiments and drama.

The film revolves around Siva (Dhanush), who belongs to a rich family and is an engineering college student. He is thrown into discombobulated scenario thrown out of his house for helping his cousin girl marry her boyfriend on the day of marriage. But Siva’s uncle Raghu (Bhagyaraj) sends money through his friend. In an unexpected turn of events, Siva kidnaps Pooja (Genelia D’ Souza) for a mistaken identity while helping his friend marry girlfriend. Siva had already fallen in love with Pooja while she passed through him in a car. Now he comes to know that even Pooja isn’t interested in marriage and she is forced to marry for the sake of property by her uncle. Now Siva tries to woo Pooja and win the favor of family members for marrying her.

Dhanush has been continuously getting through action-oriented roles and romantic characters. For the first time, he has opted a family entertainer. Apart from Dhanush, many actors have lots of importance in this film. Bhagyaraj, RK, Ambika, Rekha, Mayilsamy and many others have done a great job. Even the villain characters have been portrayed in a comic style. Vivek is the greatest highlight of this film as his characterization as ‘Emotional Ekambaram’ steals the show with his fantabulous body language.

The songs are good with couple of enjoyable numbers and cinematography is pleasant. The film doesn’t have any negative points.

‘Uthama Puthiran’ is a movie you can surely watch without any second thoughts. It’s a decorous family entertainer that makes you feel worth watching for the money you have paid for the tickets.

Verdict: 100% Entertainment
