After a tremendous success with Thuppakki, Vijay - A R Murguradoss combo returns back with this sharp Kaththi. Kaththi, is not just an usual Vijay's commercial flim or it can't be compared to yesteryear's massive hit Thuppakki. It absolutely belongs to A R Murguradoss. There is no intro song or intro fight to Vijay, even there is no extra build-ups, the story gets into business mode from the very first frame.
Story line of Kaththi is very sensitive one - how the multinational corporate gets what they want and how they can surpass whole village farmers for their needs. A R Murugadoss, as a director did an excellent job to ensure the originality of his script. Apart from this, the screenplay of Kaththi touches many social issues like Media's focus on TRP's, Water scarcity, farmer's problems. There will be a press meet scene as a pre-climax, which is the best example for Murugadoss's sharp dialogue work.
Vijay plays a dual role - Kathiresan and Jeevanantham, where both are identical in physical looks but no connection between them. We can see usual Vijay with Kathir but Jeeva's character is new for all Vijay fans, Vijay as Jeeva showcased Vijay as a performer after a long time. Even though there is very minimal changes between these characters, but Vijay has carried it very well. For strong story line, an actor like Vijay is needed and he carried out his characters very well.
Samantha as Ankitha, did a decent job along with Sathish as Ravi. Neil Nitin Mukesh, perfectly suits into his role of a corporate head and did an excellent job to establish himself into the handsome looking badies list.
Anirudh's BGM work is worthy to be mentioned as his BGM matches perfectly to the mood of every frame. His songs are already a chartbuster hit and they were well choreographed with stunning dance steps from Vijay. George C William's camera work is brilliant for an mass entertainer and he lifts himself to the bigger league.
Overall, Kaththi is definitely watchable for good social awareness message on Farmers. A R Murugadoss continued from where he left in Ramanaa. Good try..!!!
