Kalkandu Movie review
The latest star from legendary comedian Nagesh’s family has debuted in cinema. It is Anand Babu’s son Gajesh, who has made his debut in the film Kalkandu. The film is directed by AM Nandakumar, with some well-known character artists like Mayilsamy, Manobala, Ganja Karuppu and TP Gajendran lighting up the screen. The female lead is played by Dimple Chopade, who made her Tamil cinema debut with Yaaruda Mahesh. The film revolves around family relationships and also highlights about the choice and interests that children prefer when marriage is concerned. The film also has Akhil of Kalloori fame, who has done a cameo performance.
The hero has his own goals but is forced by his father to study medicine, to establish his prestige. But, due to a silly mistake, Karthik. A (Jaggesh)'s medical seat goes to Karthika (Dimple). Having fooled his family members that he is studying medicine, Karthik does not know what to do, at the end of 5 years. He decides to get back the donation money for the seat from Karthika, but falls for her at first sight. After falling in love, he gives himself up completely for her, but she is just not interested. Karthika takes off to her native Karaikudi, without even telling Karthik. The situation takes a turn when Karthika, a doctor, is sought in marriage for Karthik's brother Vignesh (Akhil), another doctor. Things start becoming blurred here. What happens next, forms the rest of Kalkandu.
The debutants have done a good job. The director has tried to take the concept of father-son bonding in a different angle. The affection between the brothers has been captured well. Gajjesh has chosen a good script for his debut. This third generation star from the late Nagesh's family, makes his entry into K-town. Dimple has given a mature performance. Jennifer needs a special mention for her role as the heroine's friend. Ganja Karuppu and Swaminathan liven up the movie, with Mayilsamy's help. AM Nandhakumar is incharge of the Story, screenplay, dialogues and direction. It is an age-tested story, but has been well told. Kannan's music needs a special mention, as the songs have come out very well.
Kalkandu is a sweet welcome for Jaggesh and Dimple!
