Kaadapuraa Kalaikuzhu movie review


Munishkanth is an altruist who looks tough but has a kind soul. He runs a folk dance troupe and treats all its members as his own family.

His ambition is to buy a piece of land and use it to set up a school where those from the next generation can be trained in the traditional folk dance forms.

It is under these circumstances that a youngster in the troupe, Harikrishnan  falls in love with a girl named Swathi Muthu, the sister of singer Supergood Subramani.

Subramani opposes their love. He complains to the village panchayat president Mime Gopi who worries about nothing but his position and power.

Mime Gopi also has an grudge against Munishkanth . How he looks to settle scores with the dancer and what happens next forms the rest of the story.


Directed by Raja Guruswamy, the movie speaks about the plight of the folk artists.

The director has made the movie as close to reality as possible.

He has captured the essence of the folk arts and the life of the artists.

Munishkanth has delivered a wonderful performance. He has breathed soul into the character of a folk artist.

He is ably supported by Kaali Venkat who comes a drummer in the troupe.

Hari and Swati add to the love angle in the movie and the chemistry between them is interesting.

Supergood Subramani has done a decent job in his role.

Mime Gopi and rest of the cast have delivered what was expected from them.

The movie’s technical aspects are passable. Music by Henry gels well with the theme of the movie.

Vinoth Gandhi’s camerawork has captured the proceedings in an interesting manner.

Rating: 3.2/5
