With great expectations and amid controversies, Ilayathalapathi Vijay's Kaththi was released to houseful theaters all over the states. Movie starts with a prison escape and enters flashback. A formula that is a favorite of director AR Murugadoss. The story is about a man who fights for the sake of a farmer. In the process, he takes on a major corporation which wants to acquire the lands of these farmers. The story sound simple but the dual role of Vijay is the plot twist in the movie. As any movie, it deals with the struggle of the protagonist and how he eventually overcomes the problem.
Vijay plays a dual role of Kathiresan and Jeevananthan. One is a mass leader with a non-violent approach, the other is a petty thief prone to violence. In spite of this stark difference between the two characters, the director has missed out in bringing two different personalities in Vijay. One would feel the overlapping similarities between the two characters.
While the cinematography is decent, the background score is not up to the mark. It almost seems like Anirudh Ravichander is losing his midas touch. What really lets down the movie is the screenplay. With too many logical loopholes, it really gives a big blow to the quality of the movie. However, the action packed dialogues for Vijay makes up. Vijay fans are in for a treat with his dialogues and unique action sequences.
While the movie lacks the substance to become iconic, it will still entertain you for the first time. A weekend watch perhaps?
