What is it about: It’s a Tamil Thriller drama, where two youngsters make a living by doing online frauds. On an unfortunate day they encounter a problem which turns their world upside down. What happens further forms the crux of the story directed by Desingh Periyasamy.
Why it’s disappointing: Except for few cinematic liberties, and the first few minutes, there’s nothing else to complain.
What to watch out for: Cinematic liberties feels good when they’re utilized well. Even though few in KKK were exaggerated a bit, still it manages to makes a strong case. The film staggers a bit in the beginning and gives you an impression; this will be another run on the mill masala Tamil flick. But it takes an acute u-turn with interesting developments. Can’t ignore the multiple references from other movies of the same genre, still comes out fresh ‘cause of the director Desingh Periyasamy’s treatment to the subject. The film thoroughly engages with twists and turns which were placed with good puns and counters. It surprises the audience at every node; interval block was a good one. The second half spirals head on with more such events which keeps you entertained.
Dulquer Salman charms everyone with not just his looks, indeed delivered a commendable performance. The surprise factor was Rakshan as Kaalis, who did a fantastic job with funny antics. Ritu Varma did an amazing job with the given character which was followed by Niranjani’s commendable performance.
To be honest not a great of fan of director Gautham Vasudev Menon’s movies except for “Kakka Kakka” & “Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu”. But I can agree I’m starting to like him as an actor. He did a great job and has a dynamic screen presence.
The cinematography by KM Bhaskaran was fantastic backed with a sharp edit by Praveen Anthony. Music by Masala Coffee was good and the score by Harshvardhan was gripping.
Verdict: Desingh Periyasamy, did a fine job in putting together this film. It had all the ingredients for a commercial pot boiler. KKK stands out for its fresh treatment which was quite flawless. The audience seemed very happy and enjoyed it thoroughly, especially the climax. Definitely, worth a watch.
