Kaththi is a Tamil film staring Ilayathalapathy Vijay, Samantha which is directed by Gajini fame AR Murugadoss. It premiered this diwali to a record shattering opening in Tamilnadu.
Opening prison break seems too exaggerated but it plays it part in climax and does give a decent intro to vijay.
Samantha may be cute but scenes involving her and the romantic songs are unnecessary insertions which hinders the pace of the film and slows down the first half of the movie.
Intermission ends with a bang.
Second half is pacy , even though coin fight and certain scenes defy logics it still entertains and that makes it enjoyable.
I don’t know why directors always want to poke their face into the screen. The scene with ARM may be a serious one but it brings only laughter.
Overall its a good entertainer and a treat for Vijay fans after a mediocre Jilla.
My Verdict: (3.5 / 5)
