Review :

After getting information about a possible Income Tax raid, former Minister Madhusudhanan gives his laptop containing the details of all his illegal properties to auditor Munishkanth. However, the auditor who is in Kasi wants to make use of this opportunity and blackmails the Minister to earn some quick buck.

Meanwhile, Jai comes to Kasi to get back his ancestral mansion. This mansion is looked after by Jiiva who has fixed his sister’s marriage with Sathish, a wannabe Sanyasi. Till the marriage is complete, Jiiva plans to stall Jai. In the process, Jiiva falls in love with Sathish’ sister Catherine Tresa and Jai falls in love with Nikki Galrani.

Only near the interval block we get introduced to Shiva who tricks people and takes their money. All these characters get involved in the mix up between the auditor and the ex-Minister. What happens next forms the rest of the story. With such a huge star cast, Sundar C has managed to give equal screen space to each one of them and ensured that the humour quotient is not lost anywhere. He has also ensured the movie is coloufully presented.

Jai and Jiiva have explored their funny sides in the movie. However at times, audience might feel that more work could have been extracted from them. Nikki and Catherine are typical commercial heroines who come as glam-dolls and for songs. There is nothing much to complain about them.

Shiva who makes a late entry steals the show with his one-liners and timing sense. His presence elevates the second half of the movie. Music by Aadhi is peppy and youthful and the BGM adds to the humour element of the storyline. On the flip side, after a certain point of time, the movie seems to be too long and the climax is a big drag. Editor Srikanth NB could have done away with a few portions in the climax. Kalakalappu 2 is a full fledged commercial entertainer in typical Sundar C style.

Rating - 3/5
