The protagonist of Cuttputlli is a police officer who is chasing a serial murderer. The 36-year-old actor Akshay Kumar lives in Parwanoo, Himahal Pradesh, as Arjan Sethi. He is fascinated by the subject of serial murderers and wants to produce a movie about it. In Chandigarh, he contacts a number of Punjabi filmmakers. However, they unanimously reject his proposal and tell him to instead develop a comedy. He then travels to Kasuali to celebrate Raksha Bandhan with his niece Payal (Renaye Tejani), brother-in-law Narinder Singh (Chandrachur Singh), and sister Seema (Hrishitaa Bhatt). Arjan is urged to give up his aspirations of becoming a filmmaker and join the police force by Narinder, a cop.
The screenplay lacks sufficient depth or intriguing red herrings to increase tension in a way that also enhances character development. The characters are flat, and none of the suspects provide any surprises, subtlety, or complexity. Arjan is the same way; his only characteristics are his desire to uphold moral principles and his fascination with serial murderers, which serve to sustain him. Nothing about Arjan’s history or his fascination with serial killers is known to us. Arjan is surprisingly bland and upstanding for a man who loves serial killers.
The 2018 Tamil movie ‘Ratsasan’ has an official remake with the working title ‘Cuttputlli.’ The plot is captivating and features all the elements of a thriller. The majority of Aseem Arrora and Tushar Trivedi’s script is engrossing. The writing has some excellent exciting and even humorous passages sprinkled throughout. The conversations of Aseem Arrora are conversational and contain various hilarious passages.
