Cliched, Poorly Made: Kanagavel Kaakka
Cast: Karan, Haripriya, Srinivasa Rao, Sampath and Aadithya
Music: Vijay Anthony
Director: Kavin Balaa
A superhuman hero does the unthinkable to ensure that justice prevails over everything. After Indian, Ramanaa and Anniyan, here comes another film of the same genre.
Kanagavel (Karan) works as a court official and targets VIPs and anti-social elements who escape by setting up false witnesses.
Karan murders 2-3 such men and finds his lover (Haripriya) deserting him on the pretext that he is too violent.
Karan then narrates his flashback to her and gets ready to move to his final destination – to murder the minister (Srinivasa Rao), who murdered his parents earlier.
Had the screenplay been novel, one could forgive the fact that the story is as old as the Mahabharata. Instead, Kavin Balaa simply shifts the backdrop of the story to a court, where the hero is an employee. The flashback narration, the long lecture to justify violence—we have all seen it umpteen times before.
Even the way Karan goes about his job of eliminating his enemies one by one lacks any sort of novelty. When the hero’s prime target, the Minister, gets stuck up in the caravan, the hero could have made his job easier by simply killing him on the spot. Instead, Karan goes on ‘talking’ to him; more yawning is in store when the hero delivers a looooong lecture at the climax prior to his killing.
The only sequence of some brilliance is when the first murder takes place.
For an action hero, Karan looks too plump to be regarded seriously. Haripriya looks beautiful and hopefully would get more scope in her successive films. Veteran Srinivasa Rao is in his element as the role of a comic villain is a cakewalk for him. Sampath, his son, has been wasted.
Music director Vijay Anthony hugely disappoints. Even the background score is not up to the mark.
Dialogues by P. Raghavan are not precise and to the point. When sharp dialogues are the order of the day, the loooong climax lecture by Karan sends the viewers out of the halls even before the film ends!
