Kathakali Movie Review
Tamil hero, Vishal's Kathakali has finally released today. Vishal pinned high hopes on this film to do well in both the Telugu states. Kathakali starring Vishal and Catherine Tresa in the lead easily transcends the intended message/story across. Let’s see can this film stand to the high hopes of vishal or not.
Kamalakar (Vishal) returns to India after many years to marry his love interest Malliswari (Catherine Tresa). An unfortunate incident happens before his marriage and that had led his life in to troubles.He receives huge shock when he and his brother were suspected for the murder of local goon Sambasiva (Madhusudan) .We have to watch on screen how vishal overcomes the problem.
Vishal’s performance is the biggest asset
Run time is short which makes film racy.
Director had failed to Revel suspense in proper manner
Love track between Vishal and Catherine Tresa has not gone well
Songs are major drawback
If Murder on the Orient Express were set on land and made into a masala movie, it might resemble Pandiraj’s Kathakali. The film is neatly directed but if director has showcased some more interest on story then it may be better. Non sync melodramatic scenes and love track has spoiled the fell of this action entertainer. However, the audience cannot expect over-the-top dialogues or exaggerated heroism in the film and Pandiraj has made his first action film in his style.
Watchable thrilling intense murder mystery.The film narrates the story how an incident can totally change a person’s life.
