Minus Points :
Too bold content
Technical Aspects :
Story of Kumari 21F tries to portray the contemporary love, where relations are based on conditional love and less emotional empathy. Sukumar has handled some heavy duty themes in the past and in this latest outing, Kumari 21F, he tries to convey, Love is to love someone for who they are, who they were, and who they will be with unconditional acceptance. Sukumar and director Surya Pratap have opted for a common place and yet highly identifiable theme for Kumari 21F that pokes two figures on the present day love and asks to stand up for true love of their life. And In short it remind us of film Lila Says (2004) in parts. The films story is somewhat half baked. It doesn’t force you to think, or drag us into the characters which are flawed, thirsting for love and relations are bogged down by the past. Director Surya Pratap pits the film wrong and had he presented it as a realistic love story more and fiction tale less, it would have worked better. If Sukumar had handled the megaphone, the things could have been a lot better. The problem with the film is it doesn’t culminate correct. Its weak in many places and pics up slow. The tempo flatters in Many Places and mostly blighted with loopy myopia that despite a different storytelling and narration the only problem is its vision limited to films beauty.
Coming to other technicalities, Cinematographer R Rathnavelu’s frames are slick and togged up and the musical score by Devi Sri Prasad leave significant mark on the audience. Editing is the biggest letdown in the film. Good editor could have taken the film up by many notches. Production Values and Sukumar Writing is good.
As expected, Kumari 21 F is a bold attempt from the production house of Sukumar. This youthful entertainer stays true to its genre and is bound to do well with the younger lot. Also, it is high time that film makers attempt hard hitting films like these once in a while. Finally, if you manage to sit through the predictable nature of the script, Kumari 21 F will surely impress you its raunchy moments, lead pair’s performance and a emotional climax.
