Acting by cast
Overall, Kannum Kannum Kollayadithaal is a bundle of sweet surprise. Take your friends or family and you can enjoy a good theatrical experience with this one.
Kannum Kannum Kollayadithaal is a romantic thriller movie with an interesting and apt star cast.
Siddharth (Dulquer Salmaan) and Kallis (Rakshan) are shown as two technical professionals.
Siddharth woos a girl Meera (Ritu Varma). And Kallis falls for her friend Shreya (Niranjani Ahathian).
Slowly we are shown that Siddharth and Kallis are not just technical freelancers, but they do pretty smart online theft and make a living.
DCP Prathap Chakravarthy (Gautham Menon) personally gets affected by one of the thefts by Siddharth and Kallis and is after them.
In a close encounter, the lead duo escape from being nabbed by the police.
And then they decide to drop the idea of scamming people for money, and plan to settle in Goa with their girls.
The film then takes an interesting twist after this point. We are then presented with a series of events that are quite engaging and surprising enough to keep you entertained.
Dulquer is apt as Siddharth and he has simply nailed the role. It seems he has not taken much effort to portray the role. He has easily slipped in.
His accent is cute and his expressions are apt.
Rakshan has a solid role to play. And he is not just the hero’s sidekick. His character arc is well written.
His comedy works well throughout the movie and at various places he manages to lighten even the emotional and serious scenes.
The ladies Ritu and Niranjani have done a great job. Thanks to Desingh Periyasamy for making their characters worthwhile.
Rather than appearing as mere love interest to the male lead, both of them have been given solid roles with importance from start to end.
Gautham Menon is classy as the desperate cop who is after the scammers. We are pretty surprised by his acting in this movie.
He should be doing more on screen appearances like this, apart from being behind the camera.
The screenplay is engaging enough to keep us entertained throughout.
The movie might feel a little too generic for the first 20 minutes. And you might feel “meh”.
After that the movie picks up pace and travels with the same pace till the end.
Thrill factor is placed throughout the movie and that has worked out really well.
Technically, the movie is strong too. K. M. Bhaskaran’s cinematography is a big plus to the movie.
The locations are shown with utmost richness. The camera angles also add richness to each frame.
Music by Masala Cafe has worked out to some extent. The BGM is apt and adds to the tension, and thrill in every scene.
The songs are just OKish though.
Praveen’s editing is on point.
Yes the movie’s run time is long.
But you can nowhere point out any scene that is unnecessary for the story.
Even the first 20 minutes that sounds slow and generic is needed for the story.
Are there no downsides? Yes there are. There are quite some logical loopholes that can be easily spotted.
And some scenes have been staged for convenience.
In addition, the lead characters are shown as wrongdoers very conveniently and they do it with no regrets.
That might give out a wrong message – if anyone is in a position to take a serious message off this movie.
But hey – I don’t think so! You will be all in for the fun and engaging ride.
The depth and detailing in the writing makes us overlook these negatives.
Overall, Kannum Kannum Kollayadithaal is a bundle of sweet surprise.
Take your friends or family and you can enjoy a good theatrical experience with this one.
