A most awaited Malayalam movie, came back of Sai pallavi into silverscreen after the blockbuster role ‘Malar’ in Premam.Dulquer salmaan, Sai Pallavi and Sameer Tahir, nothing more to say, with full of expectation Kali got released on today ( 26 March 2016 ).
Kali is the romantic thriller penned by Rajesh Gopinadhan. Kali is produced by the banner Handmade Films.
The story of the movie revolving around Dulquer Salmaan and Sai Palllavi. Siddharth (Dulquer Salmaan) is a young man who struggles with anger management issues from his childhood days. He is married to Anjali (Sai Pallavi) whom he met during the college days. Anjali tries her level best to deal with Siddharth short-tempered nature. This nature slowly starts affecting Siddharth's personal & professional lives and finally lands him in trouble. The rest of the movie deals with how he solves his issues that came across his life because of short temper.
We would like to say after Roopesh Pethambaran’s “Theevram” , DQ came back with a short tempered youth character, anyway there is no relation over here with Theevram, Dulquer Salmaan is just brilliant as Siddharth. He perfectly portrays the emotions of the character, without over-playing it. Sai Pallavi has played her role Anjali exceptionally well, even though she struggles with the Malayalam dialogues. The extraordinary on-screen chemistry between Dulquer Salmaan and Sai Pallavi is a treat to watch and the major attraction of the movie. Soubin Shahir scores with his trademark style as Prakashan. The rest of the star cast include Chemban Vinod, Vinayakan, VK Prakash, Vanitha Krishnachandran, Anjali Aneesh Upasana, etc are good in their roles.
Director Sameer Thahir has completely succeeded in executing the well-written script by Rajesh Gopinadhan, to near perfection. Rajesh has skillfully narrated a not-so-thick plot, with a neat, flawless screenplay. While the first half is colourful and lively, the second half is dark and intense. Sameer Thahir has managed to bring out the best out of his actors, thus making Kali a decent movie experience.
Gireesh Gangadharan’s cinematography is brilliant, as it creates the most appropriate backdrop for the narrative. National Award winner Vivek Harshan scores again with his fantastic editing skills.
Gopi Sundar failed to impress us with the songs. But the BGM was extraordinary, which completely goes hand-in-hand with the intense narrative pattern. Says frankly, the Gopi Sundar magic is just missing all over in it.
Without any lagging , the movie keeps you engaging from start to end. An above-average, visually appealing romantic thriller, with some fabulous performances.
