    Actor Vijay Antony is as famous or even bigger than musician Vijay Anthony as he carries quite a good number of hits like Naan, Salim & Pichaikaaran. Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi, who made her debut with the film Vanakkam Chennai, has come back after a long time. Will Kaali be a perfect summer treat for the audiences? Read Kaali review to know more about the same


    Bharat (Vijay Antony) is a successful doctor who practices medicine in the US. Critical situation arises in his family when his mother suffers from kidney failure and he steps forward to donate one of his own. It is then he learns that he is indeed an adopted son which makes him travel to India in quest of his biological parents.

    Why was he abandoned? Would he be able to trace his actual parents? Does he encounter any obstacles during his journey?

    Upside & Downside


    Vijay's subtle performance

    Songs & background music

    No over the top actions


    Flat screenplay at times

    Lack of commercial elements


    Vijay Anthony has rendered his usual best with subtle and measured performance. He knows his strength and weakness and hence, chooses his movies suiting his demand and capabilities.

    Anjali & Sunaina have done justice to their roles adding weightage to the movie. The rest of the cast and crew have chipped in with their share of contributions.

    Technical Aspects

    Along with actor Vijay Anthony, it's the music director in him, who has scored well. The background music holds the audience back to the seat while songs are not left behind. Arumbey single track, which was released few months ago is a chartbuster.

    Editing is adequate which doesn't spike the viewing experience nor lets the audience down. Cinematography by Richard M Nathan is one of the key drivers of the movie. Kaali travels from the USA to India with different locations and varied lighting. He has handled the camera well and offers a good viewing experience.

    Director Kiruthiga Udayanidhi's name was doing rounds after the release of Vanakkam Chennai for her impressive debut. Being associated to a prestigious family and the wife of actor-producer Udayanidhi Stalin, Kiruthiga, had her own name chiselled after her debut movie. Though Kaali speaks about its own merit, the screen treatment could have been better considering its interesting storyline. Nonetheless, Kiruthiga scores pretty well with her overall rendition of output.

    Final Verdict

    Kaali is a decent watch.
