There are some films that manage to get away despite seeming underwhelming solely riding on the fact that the post-interval portions are entertaining enough to make you forget the dreariness of the initial scenes. Dhilluku Dhuddu is that kind of film. The director, Rambhala takes too long a time to get his plot moving. He gives a prologue that wouldn't be out of place in a typical horror film, and then cuts to Kumar (Santhanam), a happy-go-lucky middle-class guy. We are made to sit through one of the insipid romantic tracks in recent times. This is made worse by the fact that the heroine seems so out of place while the hero is so tentative in these scenes.
