Kazhugu 2 Tamil Movie Review:
Besides the title, the lead actors, the director and the hilly backdrop, there is hardly any similarity between Kazhugu 2 and its predecessor Kazhugu.
In fact, unlike the first part which was so serious in nature, the sequel is light hearted, at least till the interval. After that, things take a turn.
Krishna has performed well, while equally good is Bindu Madhavi. Kali Venkat adds value to the movie with his presence and performance. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music is a highlight.
Though things are fairly engaging in the first half, as the film progresses towards the climax, it stumbles as it takes a dark tone. Some predictable twists and action scenes drag it unnecessarily. Director Sathyasiva could have focussed more on it.
