If you're planning to take your kid(s) for a film this weekend, forget the latest superhero, animation or horror-com & choose #KaakaMuttai

The smile of the kids in #KaakaMuttai is so infectious :) Gems like these come once in a blue moon. Please do watch the film in theaters.
#KaakaMuttai: Amazed by how Manikandan squeezed in globalisation, rich-poor divide etc into the story w/o being preachy. Just brilliant.
#KaakaMuttai - A lovely slice-of-life drama that will make you tug at your heartstrings. Fantastic portrayal of urban child poverty.

#KaakaMuttai - the film indeed has a lot of scope for melodrama but the execution is so lively, literally no cliche's.

Just to clarify. Not giving #KaakaMuttai 5 star rating because it's a festival favorite. But because it's a genuinely good film.
@dhanushkraja and @VetriMaaran should be proud of backing a gem like #KaakaMuttai. We need more films like this.
I'm going with a 5 star rating for #KaakaMuttai. Such a beautiful film that touches all the right chords. Do yourself a favour and watch it
