Pandiraj's Kathakali is an impeccable action thriller as the hero equally uses brain and brawn. The interesting one day thriller setup with unexpected twists and turns make this one an interesting watch.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that Kathakali is Vishal's best film in his decade old year career. For the first time, the actor sans his mass action hero image and gave more scope to the story and characterization, which indeed paves way for a captivating watch.
Its all about Pandiraj's superb writing and intriguing characterizations, which make Kathakali as a must watch. The director has apparently followed Korean style of filmmaking with amazing suspense factors that no one can guess what happens next and the climax twist is incredible in the movie.
Vishal must be lauded for his effort that the actor puts hold on the mass hero image, which is commendable. Overall, I would suggest that Kathakali is a must watch for all! Go for it!
