Sathish along with his friends Appukutty, Vicky and Kalai work for a pawn broker, who lends loans to purchase vehicles. If the loanee forgets to pay their interest or repay the amount back, The lead actor alongwith his friends seize the vehicle.
In this situation, Sathish plans to seize a minister - Nandakumar', car as he had forgotten to pay the dues. He successfully snatch's the vehicle out of his hands, and while returning back he accidentally knocks down Krishna Kurup. Out of fear he takes the rash decision to leave her there without giving her proper medical attention.
While an egoistic Nandakumar then decides to kill Sathish for the audacity he had to seize the car. Sathish under coincidental circumstances meets Krishna again, and confesses that he was the reason that she met with an accident,. He also proposes her as he falls for her at the first sight. She rejects both his apologies and proposal.
However, they both soon form a relationship as she eventually falls for him too, after learning that he is genuinely a good natured person. They soon hit a road block when Krishna's father Kalyan finds out about their affair. The rest of the plot revolves around how Nandakumar takes his revenge on Sathish and how the couple convince Kalyan to accept their love.
Sathish looks young and fresh, and has adapted to suit the role well. Like wise he has also pulled off the character decently. Though Krishna Kurup shares a lot of screen space, she had very little scope to perform other than being the hero's love interest.
Nandakumar yet again plays a negative shade, while Aruldoss who plays a pivotal role in the film has done a good job. Apputkutty's comic is cliche and lame, and Udhayabhanu Maheswaran, Vicky and Kalai have done justice in playing their parts neatly.
Debuatant SK Mathi has attempted to make a film which seems to be like a replica of Vikram's Sketch, with a few modifications. Even some locations were the same. While his direction seems to be fine, he falls short on the screenplay as it is confusing, incomplete and draggy at times. All together the experience was like watching a serious spoof of Sketch.
Britto Michael has provided the tunes and both his songs and background scores are decent. Suresh Natarajan's cinematography skills come to the fore and his shots are average. So is Prashanth Tamilmani's editing.
In short, Kootali is average.
