Kaalidas: Kaakka Kaakka
Kaalidas (Bharath) is a honest police officer who is there to help the needy. However, he is facing domestic issues, as his wife Vidya (Ann Sheetal) is disappointed that he is unable to spend time with her due to his hectic work nature.
One day, he receives information about a girl falling to death from a building. Though Kaalidas and his team initially believe that it was a suicide, a series of similar deaths take place in the town.
Following this, Kaalidas and his senior (Suresh Menon) arrive at a conclusion that someone is behind these mysterious deaths and start investigation.
As Kaalidas inches towards the culprit, the issues in his home snowball into a big problem. Is he able to successfully handle both?
Kaalidas, directed by Sri Senthil, is a gripping police story and a major portion of appreciation goes to the smart writing. There is connectivity between scenes and even a minor happening in the initial scenes is linked with the end portions.
Bharath, with his fit physique and right emotions, announces his comeback in style. Ann Sheetal proves that she is a powerhouse performer, while Suresh Menon is equally good.
While cinematography is good, production values are really poor, perhaps due to budget limitations. But Senthil’s script and Vishal Chandrasekhar’s music compensate for the losses. Editing is another advantage.
The reason behind the murderer committing the crimes could have been thought out better. Running for a little more than two hours, Kaalidas is a decent crime thriller that takes the viewer seriously.
