Kodi is an interesting political thriller which are very rare these days.Dhanush's performance,engaging screenplay and brilliant music makes this movie worth watching
31 October 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Kodi(2016): National Award Winner,Dhanush is one of the few actors of South India who has both mass and class following.His performance is most lauded in all his movies and now he came with Kodi which is special for him as he acted in dual role for the first time.As his previous 3 movies (Maari,Thangamagan,Thodari) gave bad results,let's see whether this Kodi brought him success..

Plot: Set against a rural backdrop, the film reveals what really goes on behind the murky and manipulative game of politics.Dhanush plays a dual role -- an aggressive politician Kodi and his twin brother Anbu, who is an intelligent, meek college professor.Kodi is determined to make it big in the world of politics but his biggest opponent is his girlfriend Rudra (Trisha). Both belong to different political parties and are arch rivals but don't allow their political differences to interfere with their love life.Things begin to get messy when both are chosen as the MLA candidates for their constituency.Rudra makes public a privately shared moment with Kodi to gain political mileage. Kodi is furious and strikes back.Their secret relationship is now exposed and both are in trouble with their party leaders.Due to unexpected circumstances ,Anbu gets involved in this who is in love with Malathi (Anupama). Why is Anbu involved in this political conspiracy and who won the elections??Is it Kodi or Rudra??

Plus Points: 1)Performances: If Dhanush stars in a movie,we need not to specially mention about his performance.As usually Dhanush is the major highlight of the movie with his energetic performance.The way he showcases superb variations in both his characters is just amazing.Trisha as a heartless power-hungry politician is decent.Anupama is cute and gave good performance.

2)Screenplay and Direction: Kodi has engaging screenplay through out the movie.Director has succeeded in making an interest political thriller without missing commercial elements.Durai Senthil must be appreciated for bringing a good political thriller in these days.

3)Music: Santhosh Narayan songs are brilliant but lyrics are very bad.Listen to them in Tamil,you will love it.Kodi theme,El Suzhali are chart busters.Background Score is brilliant..

Minus Points: 1)Climax: Climax is big letdown for this movie.It should have ended thrilling but director ended it abruptly in regular format.

2)Lyrics: A I have said earlier,Lyrics are terrible which may affect the songs.

So,Kodi is an interesting political thriller which are very rare these days.Dhanush's performance,engaging screenplay and brilliant music makes this movie worth watching

My rating 7.25/10
