Kanithan movie review is here. Continue reading to know if Atharvaa can string together a couple of hits after attracting positive reviews with his previous outing, Eetti.
Kanithan is directed by debutant TN Santhosh and bankrolled by 'Kalaipuli' S Thanu under V Creations.
After being detained by cops for landing the job of a reporter by allegedly making use of fake degree certificate, Atharvaa tries to prove himself innocent along with other victims.
The thought of breaking free in order to expose the ones enjoying lucrative jobs with degrees earned by others is what drives Atharvaa.
But can he get to the birth place of this huge and organized scam? Brawn alone wouldn't be enough to win this battle of intelligence between the good and the equally good evil.
Atharvaa is fast becoming an action hero of Tamil cinema as the 27-year-old is convincing in stunt sequences.
Playing a reporter, he has shown intent whenever required, which augurs well for Kanithan. Overall, his performance looks impressive and he is definitely the one to watch out for in the near future.
Catherine Tresa doesn't have much to do in this flick, except for flaunting her glamorous side.
Hindi actor Tarun Arora looks both stylish and frightful as a villain. It shouldn't come across as a surprise if the new baddie in town manages to bag several other projects here in South.
Kanithan takes its time to get into the core plot, which is unwelcome at the beginning. The movie then moves in the fast lane with the prospect of a thrilling finish.
Thrilling finish it is, however pace drops somewhere in the middle, thanks to a couple of misplaced songs which makes this otherwise racy entertainer look mediocre.
Arvind Krishna's cinematography is impressive and adds solidity to the film. His slick visuals help enhance the overall feel.
Background score by Chinna could've been more classier. Lowering a few decibels might've helped the music sound a lot cooler. Songs by Sivamani doesn't bring value to this movie.
Editing by Bhuvan Srinivasan is largely impressive, for he manages to keep Kanithan on the run. Clipping a few unwanted scenes and songs could've helped the movie in a big way.
Kanithan is definitely entertaining and has all the commercial elements coupled with an interesting plot. A tighter screenplay by director TN Santhosh sans the formulaic way of making a Tamil film would've made this, more than just watchable.
