Ever have one of those days when you wake up and you know that the whole day
is going to rot? Mutyam is one of those terribly tragic flicks which, at the
time of the credits itself, give you goosebumps, and you know that they will
be nothing more than pure unadulterated crap.
The story starts with a particular bearded ogre Chanti (Rohit) who loafs with
a gang of equally cool-looking trolls, when he comes across canine-o-phile Anu
(Anu). He rescues her missing dog, thus inducing her (Anu, not the dog) into
a state of puppy love before it turns into a full-blown case of kukka prema.
Now that this disease is identified, they begin to develop an itch for marriage
and want to get all tied up. But there's a fly in the ointment, in the form
of Anu's dad.
Now this guy has had a bad experience with marriage - his first wife had an
extra marital affair, so he's anti marriage. Gosh, and you thought that Freud
happened to you when you were a kid. Anyway, the rest of the flick deals with
how these two kids try to get him to agree to their marriage and stuff.
This is when you give yourself several doses of some lethal injection so that
you stay put in a state of coma till the flick ends. It's really a tragedy of
Macbeth-ian proportions to have to watch a flick with only the usher for company.
This film has all the ingredients of a pot boiler - except for it's lack of
a good script, some direction, a little bit of acting and a smidgen of music.
It is sure to go the whole extra mile - cackle cackle - to hell!
The hero consistently looks like he's just been electrocuted to life. He's so
weird looking, rumors have it that his mom used to tie a porkchop around his
neck just so the dog would play with him. That actress and her dog are nothing
to scribble home about either.
Well that's the funda about the flick. If you want to catch it, be my guest,
but don't be surprised if the guy in the projection room curses you for spoiling
his day off.
