Kadaikutty Singam

There is a tried and tested joint family drama formula in Tamil that mainly pops up as festival entertainers. Kadaikutty Singam starring Karthi is one such film where director Pandiraj applies that formula and somehow ends up with a product that is less chaotic when compared to a Hari movie.
