Pallavi (Sreemukhi) and Charan (Nandu) are software couple who are drained at end of the day and have no interest or love for each other. They keep quarreling for petty things. It all gets worse over a period. After a heated argument they decide to part ways. Will they ever reunite or do they get divorced? Curious enough? Go catch Kutumba Katha Chitram at your nearest theaters!
Kutumba Katha Chitram is made to be an urban family drama showcasing contemporary problems faced by working couple in day to day life. Director’s presentation of how minor issues blown out of proportion and widen gap between couple. Sensitive handling is commendable. Director tries to keep it realistic with natural chemistry between husband and wife. However, lackluster narration and sluggish scenes get weary over a time.
Sreemukhi surprises with her subtle performance showcasing intense emotions contrast to her usual chirpy anchor image that she has. Nandu also impresses as a husband in troubled relationship. Kamal Kamraju is also good as a philanderer.
Production values are decent. Cinematography by Joshi gives film natural feel. Sunil Kashyap’s music is pretty average. Director Vasu should have taken better care in scripting.
Bottom-line: Kutumba Katha Chitram is experiment gone wrong!
