After a villager unwittingly prevents a number of terrorist attacks in Chennai, a young journalist identifies and persuades him to take on the disguise of a superhero to fight terrorism and corruption.
A multinational company tries to forcefully take over a village that was once a fertile agricultural land to make way for its commercial projects. Jeevanantham, a Hydrology Grad and probably the most educated person in the village, takes the fight to the MNC and vows to reclaim what's their own. Does he deliver on his promise? Do his efforts bear fruit? - The answers form the crux of this sensitive-issue themed flick.Written by
A real heroism and an outrageous performances by every one!!!
"Straight of the sheath, Kaththi is sharp most of the time, but not always. AR Murgadoss has come out with a film which has a neat social message, packaged well with mass entertainment elements. Vijay carries the film in a tricky dual role, which brings out the star in him whether doing comedy, romance, songs, fights and emotional scenes".
The film's story revolves around Vijay's dual characters – Jeevanandham and Kathiresan. Jeevanandham is a social activist who fights against a large corporate, which is planning to usurp the fertile lands of the farmers. On the other hand, Kathiresan is a thief who has escaped jail and is on the run. How Kathiresan steps into Jeevanandham's shoes and leads the fight against the corporate forms the crux of the story.
"Vijay as Jeevanandham & Kathiresan has delivered a lifetime performance, and showed a brilliant variety in both the roles, albeit not even a great makeover between both the roles,"
"Technically, Kaththi is a storm. The film possesses stunning visuals thanks to George C. Williams. Editing by Sreekar Passed is neat, yet a few trims in the first half would have stepped on the pedal. The art direction is surreal, and the stunts do bring up the ante, especially the coin flip fight sequence.
Don't miss this one!!!
