Kaduva review: Action is the hero in this Shaji

It is really been just about two many years considering that the Shaji Kailas magic labored its appeal on the audience. The director of superhit flicks like ‘Aaram Thampuran’ and ‘Narasimham’ might have been struggling for decades to revive that allure, but with ‘Kaduva’, it appears like the senior filmmaker has lastly found his tempo with the viewers, yet again.

The movie can simply be referred to as Shaji’s comeback. However it absolutely is no ‘Aaram Thampuran’ nor ‘Commissioner’, the motion picture has that type of articles that will undoubtedly pull an viewers who enjoys mass action entertainers to the theatres.

‘Kaduva’, scripted by Jinu Abraham and starring Prithviraj and Vivek Oberoi, is established in Pala in the 1990s when cell phones and luxury automobiles have been nonetheless to penetrate the current market. Prithviraj plays Kaduvakunnel Kuriachan, a prosperous planter and bar operator, whose fiery rivalry with the all-influential law enforcement officer Ouseph Chandy (Vivek Oberoi) sorts the full drama.

This is Vivek’s 2nd outing as an antagonist in Mollywood and he plays his position to perfection, with the appropriate blend of villainy and charisma. His towering physique also gives him the edge making the combat scenes among equally him and Prithviraj, an enthralling watch. The chemistry among the duo is simple and some scenes in between them remind you of the motion sequences in ‘Ayyappanum Koshiyum’.

Prithviraj has after once more proved why he is a bankable motion picture star who has the skill to mint gold for filmmakers who choose to use him sensibly. However Shaji Kailas’s previously collaboration with Prithviraj, ‘Simhasanam’ was a disaster, the director has been mindful not to repeat his slip-up this time. The movie rides superior on motion and Prithviraj has completed justice to his part, delivering the appropriate punch at the appropriate time. He also keeps proving he is very good at pulling off mass entertainers and delivering what his audience wishes.

The script is certainly star-pushed and male-dominated, so there is little scope for actors like Samyuktha Menon who performs Elsa, Kuriachan’s wife, in the motion picture.

Alancier as Kuriachan’s previous instructor Varkey and Baiju as buddy Korah also include to the enjoyment quotient.

Seema does a excellent job enjoying Ouseph Chandy’s mom, even though Kalabhavan Shajon as a law enforcement officer and Arjun Ashokan as Kuriachan’s neighbour also do justice to their roles. While the film is a minimal predictable, the makers surprise us with twists and turns, which aid in constructing the suspense of the film. The power-punched dialogues and top-amount motion sequences elevate the movie to an additional amount. The songs and BGM by Jakes Bejoy is also spectacular. In general, if you are a enthusiast of motion films, the motion picture is a must-observe in theatres.
