Kathakali Movie review
Producer: Vishal Film Factory, Pasanga Production
Cast: Vishal, Catherine Tresa
Vishal's high voltage action drama Kathakali is interestingly Pandiraj's big budget flick in his career also, he also makes a shift from his regular offbeat styles. “The budget is bigger than any of my previous films, and I needed an understanding producer who would not balks at re-shooting some scenes or attempting something new. Vishal, the co-producer, was completely understanding of this. Due to him, the film has come out better than I expected,” the director was quoted saying. Catherine Tresa plays the leading lady in Kathakali, which will have a wide release by Sri Thenandal Films.
Amudhan (Vishal) returns to Cuddalore from the States just four days before his wedding with Meenu (Catherine). The fishing town is ruled by Thamba and his men, who incidentally shares an old rivalry with Amudhan and his family. Just a day before the wedding, Thamba is killed by a group of unknown men and the focus turns on Amudhan. And the rest is a high voltage action ride with ample twists and turns.
• It's Vishal, Vishal and Vishal. The entire film is on his shoulders and he does it with style.
• Pandiaraj comes out from his regular forte to try his hands on an pakka commercial entertainer and he wins with flying colours.
• The rest of the starcast has done their part well.
• Cinematography and editing works need a special mention.
• The background score syncs in well with the racy action sequences.
• The first half could have been tweaked more to keep up the pace.
• Songs could have been better.
An high voltage action entertainer perfect for this Pongal
