Film begins with an intro of Perunazhi Ranasingam ( Sathyaraj) the village bigwig who takes care of his village as his family and who is respected among other villages too. Though fortunate to have five daughters thru two wives Vanavan Maadevi (Viji Chandrashekar) and Panjavan Maadevi (Bhanupriya), he still wanted a son to take over his legacy. Finally at his age of 50 , his first wife delivers a baby boy Perunazhi Gunasingam (Karthi). Gunasingam raised by his sisters, is the binding force of the family. His family wants him to marry one of his grownup nieces Chellama (Priya Bhavani Shankar) or Andal (Arthana Binu). And the girls are also fond of their ‘murai maaman’ and dream of their marriage with him. When all is well, till Gunasingam falls in love with Kannukiniyaal (Sayyeshaa) and asks for approval from his sisters. Hell breaks loose between the family and Gunasingam is heartbroke as the family splits. How Gunasingam brings the family back together is the rest of the story.
Pandiaraj id known for clean story and neat presentation, this movie too has the same. From the beginning he concentrates on the importance of farming and the farmers. The cast though huge, doesn’t over power story. Karthi and Sathyaraj perform with ease and others compliment the story well. Sayyeshaa who doesn’t fit in the village girl role does a decent job. For once Soori gives us a simplified comedy track which gels with the genre. With all the above said, the second half drags you with over melodramatic scenes and resemble TV serials. The preachy dialogues becomes very repetitive and bores the audience . the so called villain character goes baseless. The climax which grows with an big emotional sequence abruptly switches to a fight sequence and ends abruptly. But still Kadaikutty Singam is still watchable and satisfies its target audience. I give it 5/10
