Siddharth's much awaited Kaaviya Thalaivan has finally hit the theatres today. The film, directed by Vasanthabalan is Tamil, Malayalam as well as Telugu. Our reviewer Subramanian Harikumar is watching the film at a theatre right now and has sent his first impression of the film.

Hari says, "The story revolves around a theatre group in pre- independence era run by ace veteran actor played by Naseer who takes in two young boys in his company – Kali and Gomathi played by Siddharth and Prithviraj respectively. Though Gomathi eyes to be Guru's favourite, it is Kali who charms him with his brilliant histrionics. This leads to jealousy swelling in the heart of Gomathi. Meanwhile, Kali falls in love with zamindar's daughter and Vadivu, who joins the theatre catches the eye of Gomathi. When Gomathi comes to know about Kali's affair, he informs it to the guru who in anger asks Kali to take pledge of never seeing the Zamindar's daughter again. Fearing their lives from Zamindar's wrath, the theatre group flees to an another town. But Gomathi becomes Guru's new favourite and Kali is sidelined. Soon the Guru passes away and differences crop between Kali and Gomathi, due to which Kali leaves the group.
