Amidst much hype and anticipation, Sivakarthikeyan's Kaaki Sattai has finally made it to the silver screen almost all over the world. This is the first time Siva is seen in a cop avatar and as an action hero. So what does the film has to offer?
Veteran actor Prabhu has done an interesting role and he excels in that particular character. Sri Divya appears through out the first half but sadly disappears in the second. Sivakarthikeyan acting in Kaaki Sattai is refined and he manages to keep his emotions as subtle as possible which works brilliantly in this yet another cop story.
Sivakarthikeyan has shown a huge shift from a common next door boy to a cop. He has mastered the method of showing emotions through his eyes, which has taken him to another height through this movie. He knows to show expression as a comical and as a powerful cop. The roar from the audience shows that he has listed his name under mass heroes’ band.
The storyline of this movie, though it is predictable to the commons, yet director Durai Senthilkumar has ensured that his audience will get entertained to their expectation.
Siva sports the police uniform and looks pretty fit as a constable with positive intent.
In the movie, it is the comedy element which takes prominence. The likes of Imman Annachi, Mayilsamy and Siva himself keep churning out the laughs and the popular Harahara Mahadevaki gig is a major spike in the proceedings.
In the second half, when Mano Bala enters the scene, the film meanders a little. The comedy portions also seem extended more than needed.
Directed by Durai Senthil Kumar, Kakki Sattai is touted as an action comedy entertainer with all the commercial elements. This is the second time that Sivakarthikeyan has teamed up with director Durai Senthil Kumar after the stupendous success of Ethir Neechal.
Cinematography dept handled by M.Sukumar is good and neat. Visuals in Kadhal Kan Kattudhe are too good. Editing work is very poor and so as VFX Effects. Editing could have been better. Production values are okay.
