25 June 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Kadhalum Kadanthu Pogum (2016): Vijay Sethupathi,Madonna Sebastian playing lead roles.Directed by Soodhu Kavvum fame Nalan Kumaraswamy.Produced by my favorite person C.V.Kumar and music by brilliant Santhosh Narayan.Any movie lover does not wish more than this.Such most talented people joined for this best entertainer Kadhalum Kadanthu Pogum.So how is it??

Plot: Inspired by 2010 Korean movie My Dear Desperado,KaKaPo deals with two unlikely people. Kathir (Vijay Sethupathi) who is a wannabe rowdy, whose only aim is to run a bar on his own. He is just back from five years of prison life and it was for his area councilor, who promised him to provide a posh life. Then, we have Yalini (Madonna Sebastian) who loses her IT job during recession and due to financial crisis, she stays in the small flat opposite Kathir. The rest of the film is all about how these two people with drastically different dreams gel with ease and develop a liking for each other.

Plus Points: 1)Screenplay and Direction: Screenplay is entertaining at its best.It has lot of laugh out loud moments and also cute feel good moments.There is not even a dingle boring scene in this entire movie.Few scenes are remarkable and really makes us to watch it again and again.Last half and hour is truly one of the best moments in recent times. Nalan Kumaraswamy really is such brilliant director.Even if this is a remake he showed his own mark of dark comedy.

2)Performances: Performances are major asset to movie.Vijay Sethupathi is one of the rare actors who redefines the meaning of so called unbeatable hero.He can play underplayed roles with so much ease.He truly is a gem.Madonna Sebastian is so cute and came up with brilliant performance.I started loving her more after this movie.Others also played their roles without flaws.

3)Music: Santhosh Narayan came up with amazing music.Both his songs and BGM are awesome.BGM really helped a lot for carrying movie's feel.KaKaKaPo song is best song of the album.

So Kadhalum Kadanthu Pogum is best entertaining movie of 2016 with brilliant performances,entertaining screenplay,topnotch direction and amazing music.

My rating 8/10
