Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal review: Dream team of Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara and Samantha is great but the writing lets you down

The comedy is decent for the most part, but the premise - a man unable or unwilling to choose one woman to love - is far from funny.

Falling in love is something no one can control. And whom you fall in love with is again something you can’t control. Matters of the heart always come with their share of desires and dilemmas which can’t be dismissed because love is not black and white. There’s a whole world of grey, and it is this space that () falls under.

Vijay Sethupathi, who plays Rambo, shows us the world of grey that he is trapped in when he falls in love with both Kanmani (Nayanthara) and Khatija (Samantha).

Rambo is a guy who is jinxed from childhood or rather believes his life is jinxed. His father dies when he is born, and the people in his village shun him saying that he is unlucky, and he grows up believing this. He runs away from home to save his bedridden mother from his jinxed life, and even as an adult, luck eludes him at every turn. Till the day he believes it all changed. On that fateful day, Rambo’s day job as a cab driver leads him to Kanmani and his night job as a club bouncer introduces him to Khatija. The love he receives from both women makes up for all the love he never received in his life till then. And that’s when hell breaks loose.
