Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan has nothing new for the audience, but a collection of WhatsApp jokes in circulation.
“A well-crafted entertainer with a lot of cliches. Siddique returns as the same ambitious father as in Ustad Hotel who wants his son to fulfill his dreams,” she adds on.
“Nadhirshah doesn't seem to have thought much beyond his first film AAA and is inculcating the prejudicial approach towards women in this movie too. But the life of junior actors, their aspirations and dreams have been brought well on screen,” Anagha tells us after watching the first-half.
