Movie: Kavalai Vendam
Cast: Jiiva, Kajal Aggarwal, Bobby Simha, Sunaina
Music: Leon James
Cinematographer: Abinandhan Ramanujam
Editor: T S Suresh
Genre: Adult, Romance, Comedy
What is it about: It’s about a young married couple, who are deeply in love with each other and at the same time can’t stand each other. While they’re in this tug of war, the wife files for divorce and what happens next forms the crux of the story directed by Deekay.
Why it’s disappointing: Second film becomes quite a pressure for a director and that was clearly seen in Deekay’s screenplay. As it was dipping in to clichés and masala factors which kind of spoiled the fun. And to top that our censor board took most of the fun but censoring few dialogues, which defeated the purpose of adult comedy. The film had an honest notion of Adult romantic comedy which gets lost here and there, spoiling the stability of the entertainment factor.
Then it was actor Bobby Simha, who looked like who was forced in to doing in this role. He seemed disinterested and looked like a text book actor.
What to watch out for: There are quite a few positives about this film and the lead cast is one among them.
Jiiva was good, and was a relief character wise from his previous outings which were disastrous. He did a great job which had the comic one liners reminding us of his SMS days. It was a commendable from Jiiva.
Kajal Aggarwal, was convincing in the annoying character and she looked ravishing and would say one of the best in Tamil films she acted till date.
RJ Balaji, the current most famous actor in a comedian role. In spite of his repetitive style, still he becomes a favourite due to the way he times it and presents it on the screen, once again saves the day making you laugh hard.
The cinematography by Abhinandhan Ramanujam was delectable, he made Coonoor look like a location abroad. His tone and colour selection was a delight to watch. And that was well backed by TS Suresh with a crisp and precise editing.
Music by Leon James was good, nothing which you can boast of, but fits right in to the film.
And then finally a department which mostly Kollywood neglects, and that is costume department. And Sarala Vijayakumar a.k.a SARA did a fantastic job in making entire cast look great and especially Kajal Aggarwal.
Verdict: Deekay, in his second outing tries his best to make a decent impression. But staggers most of the time, striking here and there. But the entire cast made it possible by their commendable performances. Most definitely one time watch.
