Tamil Movie Review

Kaadan movie review

Rana Daggubati is a man in his fifties. He is born and raised in the forest. He shares a strong bond with the wild animals and he believes that preserving the sanctity of the forest is crucial to the existence of the animals and human beings for generations to come. A greedy and corrupt Forest Minister Ananth Mahadevan plans to build a mega 500 acre township in the midst of the forest. In the process, they build a 60 km wall to prevent the elephants from entering the project site for drinking water. The rest of the story is all about Rana and the elephants’ fight for survival and protecting the nature.

Director Prabu Solomon should be commended for coming up with a heartening story that’s much needed. The message that the film conveys throughout is very relevant in the present times. Rana is quite impressive. Be it his rugged appearance, where he sports a thick, long bread and a lean physique, or his peculiar dialogue delivery and his agressive and eccentric body language. Vishnu Vishal is decent in his short role. the Cinematography by A R Ashok Kumar and sound design by Resul Pookutty are top-class. Even the visual effects showcasing the rainforest are very realistic.

Rating 3.5/5
