What is bad:
The film falters at the first step of its making – the story line and treatment. The line in short goes thus – ‘Kothimooka’ is a comedy about a good hearted son of a corrupt politician, who is in love with a beggar’s daughter, and makes the beggar a politician opposite his father, teaching his father a fitting lesson! The line deserves the film be treated with lots of political satire, and probably touching complicated romance.
Instead the film focuses on the romance, mundane comedy sequences, over the top characters, and then finally manages to give a speech on how the politicians in a country or a region should work. The screenplay, assuming there was one, is inundated with self explanatory lines here and there which are supposed to explain the audiences - how a beggar’s daughter looks like a cinema heroine; how a beggar gains so much popularity that he is voted by people over a seasoned politician; and why the film is actually called Kothimooka!
Not at any single point of time do audiences connect to any single character, leave alone any single emotion of the film.
