Santhanam’s maiden production venture starring himself, Sethu and Power Star Srinivasan and VTV Ganesh, Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya (KLTA) is inspired by filmmaker-actor K Bhagyaraj’s yesteryear superhit film Indru Poi Naalai Vaa. It is purely a comedy film directed by Manikandan.


Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya doesn’t break new ground. it’s plot isn’t original; the story is taken from Bhagyaraj’s yesteryear classic “Indru Poi Naalai Vaa”. It doesn’t feature prominent actors nor director. But, it does make you laugh from start to finish even though the movie travels along the predictable lines.

The movie has created a lot of buzz due to 3 things — Santhanam, Power Star and recognizable title made popular by Cadburys advertisement. Will the movie meet its expectations and win the Pongal race?

The story is about three friends wooing a ‘laddu’ girl. Sethu (Sethu), Kaalkattu Kaliyaperumal aka KK (Santhanam) and Power Kumar (Srinivasan) are best friends and jobless; their only job is to chase girls and have fun. The heroine (Vishaka) gets relocated with family to the opposite house of newcomer Sethu. The three friends fall for the same girl. They make a deal that if one of them wins her heart, then the other two should take a step back. All three friends enter her house in different ways. Sethu impresses her by helping her aunty (Kovai Sarala) and brother, KK learns singing from her uncle (VTV Ganesh) and Power Kumar attends Bharatanatyam classes held by her dad. The rest is all about who wins the girl’s heart narrated in comedy filled with Santhanam style one-liners. Who will win her heart?

    As usual, Santhanam has rocked in his typical comedy style.

    Sethu has done a decent job.

    Srinivasan has made his role extremely well and in most of the scenes has stolen the screen space from Santhanam.

    Vishakha suits well for her role ‘laddu’. The story revolves around her and she has done a good job in all scenes including the song sequences.

    VTV Ganesh, Kovai Sarala, Devadarshini, Raja and Ganeshkar have done justice to their roles.

    Special cameos by director Gautham Menon and actor Simbu help the movie end in a right note.

    Thaman’s background music and songs are refreshing and completely gel with the theme of the film.

    Cinematographer Balasubramaniam has handled camera well, giving a youthful and colourful look to the movie.

    Director Manikandan has to be praised for giving a humour-packed film.

    The humorous movie, KLTA is a real treat for movie buffs this Pongal festival.

  2. Ramchander

    Santhanam is hilariously brilliant in Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya. His mannerism and one-liners get full marks once again. He is well supported by the Power Star, as he is simply excellent. It has to be mentioned here about his introductory scene which takes audience by storm. And also Sethu is good.

    Thanks to director Manikandan, who has taken the best out of all three of them. In fact, Santhanam and the Power Star’s performances remain biggest strength of the film.

    Vishaka is okay and supporting cast like VTV Ganesh, Kovai Sarala, and others have done justice. Last but not least, Gautham Menon and Simbu have done guest appearance.

    S Thaman’s music is okay and ‘Love letter…’ and ‘Potti…’ are our picks and Balasubramaniem’s cinematography is apt. Rest other departs have done justice. Finally, the director has to be praised for churning out a humorous film.

    Verdict: Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya is a fun ride.
