Staring : Vijay, Samantha, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Sathish Director : AR. Murugadoss Music : Anirudh Production : Lyca Productions There has been a lot of buzz in Cine industry about ‘Kaththi’ from the moment they have been disclosed. Vijay has done a dual role after ‘Azhagiya Tamil Magan’. Songs by Anirudh were already chartbusters. Kaththi is all about, how Jeevanandham, a social activist fight against a monstrous MNC company to restore farming. The other Vijay, ‘Kathiresan’, a small time thief, but an ultra intelligent youngster, who swaps position with Jeevanandham because of destiny, and leads the war with the corporate heads by, Neil Nithin Mukesh, which tries to steal the fertile lands from villagers. ARM tries to weave a story with the age old concept of mistaken identity in dual role movies along with a strong social message. But he has failed in screenplay. The transformation of ‘Kathiresan’ to ‘Jeevanandam’ is not at all satisfying. His screenplay is a sluggish affair and the film takes quite a while to get going. Kaththi doesn’t engage consistently and the odd sizzling moments are interspersed with moments of tedium. The length is another drawback and the already gracious run time of 2 hours 45 minutes feels longer. The Thuppakki hangover continues in Kaththi to an extent, as evidenced through Vijay’s pre-interval punchline, his ‘mass’ mannerisms and the sentimental climax song. If Thuppakki was an ode to the Army, Kaththi is dedicated to the farmers of the land. The placement of all the songs leaves a lot to be desired, with the much talked about ‘Selfie Pulla’, arriving when the audiences would have just entered the hall after the intermission. The delightful ‘Aathi’ is the weakest on screen while Vijay’s intro number ‘Pakkam Vandu’, though a different exercise doesn’t grip fans as Vijay’s intro songs usually do. Unlike vidyut in Thupakki, neil nitin neither did have a good role nor he was used well. . He was wasted. . So was samantha except for songs. . Satish’s comedy were nothing great but thanks he did not irritate either.. Coming to other technical aspects, Cinematography by George.C.Williams was eye-catchy. Anirudh is the saving grace of the whole movie. Most of the scenes looked top-notch due to his soulful background score. Editing could have been a bit more better. Overall, ARM as a director, as again irked lot of people with some melodramatic situations happening against farmers, which is exactly happening in many villages, Kudos to his concept too , but he has failed to materialize into a good movie like ‘Thuppakki’. Verdict : Knife is Pointless
