Cast and Crew Analysis:
In-spite of being debut movie, Vikram just lived as Bomman in this movie.. He acted very well and dialogue delivery was perfect… Lakshmi menon played the female lead,, this movie is supposed to be her debut movie too.. But Sundarapandian released before Kumki.. Her acting was good… Thambi Ramiah and Boss Engira Baskaran fame Ashwin raja acted very well and they took care of the comedy… Apart from these, all others did their part well..
Awesome songs and BGM by Imman… Sukumar can be considered as the supporting hero of this movie,, his camera work was too good.. When most of the directors are trying to take a commercial movie with a famous hero and make money, hats-0ff to Prabhu Solomon for thinking something different/unique and coming out with an extraordinary/entertaining movie.. Hope he continues the same in future…
First half was too good and entertaining… Second half dragged a lot.. And the climax was not convincing… But still, Kumki is a kind of movie which everyone should experience in a good theater without fail.. It’s our duty to encourage this kind of movies in Tamil Cinema..
