Neatly scripted thriller one should not miss
18 January 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Although it has its own mistakes, Kathakali stands out it its way of storytelling. The screenplay is scripted so well that it doesn't reveal much about what is going to come next. Its not a genius script but it was scripted smartly!

Pros - Vishal Performance, BGM, Screenplay, Performance of other lead characters, Editing and cinematography to some extent.

Though few, there are cons. The fact that why vishal didn't persuade Catherine from coming into Cuddalore leaves a loophole.

As it is different from other commercial movies, I would rate it 8/10. Just for its screenplay and such an attempt in Thamizh Cinema.
