Kathakali Movie Review, Rating – Vishal Plot revolves around the murder of Thamba (Madhusudhan), the fishermen’s association head in Cuddalore, who is also a gangster. The prime suspect is Amudhavel (Vishal), who has returned to the town from the US after four years for his marriage. His family has had a skirmish with Thamba, which had left his father confined to the wheelchair. The cop in charge of the case, Saravanavadivel (Srijith), is after him because his friend (Kiran), who works for Thamba, had gone to the cops alleging that Amudhavel had murdered his boss. But there are various others who have a motive to commit the murder — Amudhavel’s brother (Mime Gopi); his friend Sammandham (Pavan) and his ex-MLA father who were defeated in the elections by Thamba; a textile shop owner (Jayaprakash) whose daughter Thamba had gotten married to her lover much against her father’s wishes; the Chennai fishermen; Thamba’s son or maybe, it was his own men!
What is invigorating about Kathakali is that it is less an activity film and progressively a secret. Pandiraj keeps us speculating in respect to who the killer may be, even as he builds the strain by placing Amudhavel into circumstances from where escaping appears to be precarious. Amid the center segment of the film, Amudhavel is caught inside a transport with no chance to get out of his scrape. Indeed, even the compulsory sentimental segment (with Catherine Tresa) is done away with in brief time.
Just as of late, we had Eetti where a wrong call prepares for sentiment to create between the saint and courageous woman. It is the same case here too however as he did in his introduction film Pasanga, which likewise had a cell telephone based sentiment, the executive treats these scenes in carefree manner. He likewise describes them in portions even as he the plot continues advancing, giving us one more suspect to add to our rundown.
It is in the last divides that the film slips a bit. Given that Amudhavel is played by Vishal, the character must be an activity legend thus we see him whipping proficient hoodlums with barely any exertion, and the film begins to look like ordinary activity movies. Also, Pandiraj gives us one curve an excess of at last with a Murder On The Orient Express-like conclusion that credibility gets hammered.
