Director-cum-producer Ramanarayan"s 121st film is a bilingual movie in Tamil as Kutty Pisasu and in Kannada as Bombat Car. The director seems to have used his age-old formula that was popular in the seventies. Although the dubbing of a few actors is not in sync except for the Kannada actors, Ramanarayanan is successful in attracting kids and family audience.

Bombat Car is a complete kids" entertainer. It is all about a vintage car, in which a soul takes refuge and seeks revenge from the enemies, who killed him and his sister. The movie seems to have inspired by Hindi film Tarzan — The Wonder Car and Hollywood film The Transformers. The director has heavily borrowed from these two films. Especially, the robo car scenes are copied from The Transformers.

Priya (Baby Keerthika) is the daughter of a typical Brahmin couple Sangeetha and Ramji. She is possessed by the spirit of Sangeetha"s best friend Kaveri. An old vintage car is possessed by Kaveri's brother ghost. Both the spirits go about seeking revenge on those responsible for their deaths, but the bad guys take the help of a ghost buster. When the ghosts are about to lose their battle, the village deity helps them fulfill their destiny.

Baby Keerthika steals the show as possessed Priya. She has done justice to her role. Ramya Krishnan also impresses the audience as village Goddess. Actors Ravishanker and Doddanna's comedy is another highlight of the film.

The special effects and graphics are mainly focused the kids. The graphic work makes the film totally unrealistic and that's why it fails to connect the screenplay with the audience. One song of Deva"s composition is very catchy and nicely pictured. However, the movie is a good attempt by Ramanarayan and it can be a good fun for kids for this summer vacation.
