Here is a director, who has the ability to make a movie on the realistic lines without harming the commercial elements. Yes, KV Anand’s latest film Ko has all the ingredients like thrill, action, romance etc. The story of the film is said to be partially inspired by his own life experience of a photojournalist. Read on for Ko review.
Ashwin (Jeeva) works as a photojournalist and Renuka Narayanan (Karthika) and Saro (Piaa Bajpai) are his colleagues, who are reporters in the same daily. The story sets during the election time, where the Chief Minister Yogeswaran (Prakash Raj) and the leader of the opposition party Alavandhan (Kota Sreenivasa Rao), are in a bitter battle for the power. There is also a young man Vasanthan Perumal (Ajmal), who has entered the race with the desire to clean the politics.
The polls get a twist when Ashwin-Renuka’s investigative journalism unveils the true faces of Yogeswaran and Sreenivasa Rao. Meanwhile, a bomb explosion leads to Saro’s death during one of the Vasanthan’s election campaigns. This incident and the press support lead to the youth’s victory in the assembly election. What happens next should be seen on-screen.
