Dhanush starrer Kodi is out for Deepavali and whatmore it is a double delight for his fans as he appears in dual roles, perhaps for the first time in his career.
The actor who proved his mettle in doing versatile roles that even fetched him National award, plays a full-fleged entertaining role(s) and kudos to director Durai Senthilkumar for comiong up with a gripping narration of political game in a rural town with limited characters.
All said, Kodi is a apolitical movie that is about politics.The movie happens in a rural town and Dhanush appears as a politician (Kodi) and a college lecturer (Rishi). Trisha plays an village girl who wants to make it big in politics.
Anupama Parameswaran dons the role of a vendor (Malathy). What transpires in their lives ans whether they set out to achieve their mission or not forms the crux.The director has ensured that everything falls in place as the story progresses.
The dialogues are razor-sharp and the events makes it interesting and enjoyable. There is a sense of revenge and innocence in the film.The highlight of the movie is that the songs are placed at right places and the story progresses in right speed.
Dhanush is the heart and blood of the movie. As Kodi he is ambitious and as Rishi is sweet and suave. The variations have been brought out well byhim.Trisha is a feast to watch. She excels in every frame and hogs a meaty role.
Anupama Parameshwaran is adequate. Saranya Ponvannan is a delight. Music by Santosh Narayanan is a major boost.Dhanush has got under the skin of the characters to excel. Produced by Vettrimaran's production house, Kodi is a commercial cocktail with enough for audience to enjoy.
Kodi keeps Dhanush's flag high and the movie with enough elements of comedy in the first half and action-drama in the next makes it a great watch.
Kodi - Political game
