vijay anthony always puts out interesting movies and next in line is today’s release kasi. The film was released simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu today. Let’s see how the movie turns out.
bharath(vijay anthony) is a well established doctor in the united states who comes to know that he is an adopted son and his roots are in a small town called kancharlapalem. Annoyed with this, he arrives in town and begins to uncover his past. after a while, he finds out about his mother, but the whereabouts of his father remains a mystery. The rest of the story is about how Bharat finds out who his father is and why he left him alone in life.
vijay anthony plays his role quite sincerely and performs to the best of his ability. he has played different characters in the movie and all of his roles have been well executed. comedian yogi babu evokes fun to some degree in the first half.
The second half of the movie is a bit better than the first, where the real story unfolds. Anjali is cute in her role but she doesn’t have much to do with the movie. there are three stories shown one after another and the last one where vijay plays a church father has some decent moments.
one of the biggest drawbacks of the movie is that a single dot creeps into nothing. the first two stories are horrible and don’t add any depth to the process.
the way vijay anthony searches for his father is shown in an unnatural way. she meets different people and they narrate their stories which is shown through vijay as the protagonist. they are not only boring but also lack a logical connection to the story.
The creators should have gone with a single flashback and ended things on a simple note that would have made things easier for the audience. after starting the film off on a promising note, the director completely loses track of things in the first half.
The film’s production values are decent as the filmmakers have made sure that the film doesn’t have much of a Tamil flavor. the camera work is good and so was the production design which showed the images of the town in an orderly fashion. the telugu dub by hema chandra for vijay anthony is perfect. vijay anthony’s music isn’t great at all, but his background score was awesome.
referring to director udayanidhi, she has done a disappointing job with the film. her story is fine, but the execution is quite confusing. she is to blame, as she makes the story complex by adding unnecessary subplots that bore the audience. With the exception of the last story, the rest of the film deviates due to the lack of depth in the narration.
vijay anthony’s movies have good plots and decent thrills, but that’s not the case with kasi, which lacks basic procedural depth. a simple, clean story is marred by wayward execution and unnecessary subplots. Except for Vijay Anthony’s heartfelt acting, there is nothing in this movie to interest the audience. so look for better options to kill your time this weekend.
