Just watched "Kaaviya Thalaivan". Once again Vasantha balan has given a different and a good film. This film is really something which doesn't go well with the commercial audience. But Vasantha balan has given this in an engaging manner. A different movie which brings the pre-independence era and the drama troops lively on the screen. This film slightly reminds me of the "Sivaji ganesan" starrer yesteryear blockbuster film "Rajapart Rangadurai".
Positives:- Right from the title, Siddarth and Prithviraj steals the show. This is the best performance of Siddarth till date. And my favourite of the film is the Cunning and evil character of Prithviraj. Even though Prithviraj has done similar roles in the past in Mollywood, he shows lots of maturity in this film. Everyone has done their job in a perfect manner. Nassar, Tambi ramaiah, Ponvannan, singampuli, Vedhika and the list of characters has given justice to their role. Music:- AR.Rahman's music adds a feather to this movie. He has produced a different album with hummable numbers, Aye Mr.Minor, Vanga makka and My fav. Yaarumilla song and the BGM suits the period of the film. Negatives:- The character of the Princess is mischievous but the actress doesn't looks promising this movie. Her smile and performance was really irritating for me. The scenes are almost predictable.
Threats:- While I was in awe of appreciation during the end as I do for every movie I feel good, I noticed that I was the only person left in the Theatre as everyone left early without watching the full movie.
Verdict:- Leave the usual masala aspects aside and Watch "Kaaviya Thalaivan" as a different recipe. You will really love this new flavour. My rating:- 10/10 simply for the efforts and execution
