Sai Pallavi’s return only made me to watch this film and also because of this film had subtitles along with it. Dulquer’s choice of stories kindles interest to us which adds more expectations to this film. Lets see how his anger has worked out for the film.
Siddharth (Dulquer Salman) 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’s short-tempered nature. This nature slowly starts affecting Siddharth’s personal & professional lives and finally lands him in trouble. As the movie progresses, the narrative takes on a thriller mode as the car journey becomes a nightmare for the couple. How he solves his issues forms the crux of the story.
Sameer Tahir has done a wonderful job taking up such a movie and delivering it successfully. The single thread is single mindedly dealt with and the direction is flawless. One of the highlights of the film is the performance of the lead pair, Dulquer Salmaan and Sai Pallavi, and their spectacular chemistry. Dulquer gives a controlled performance as Siddarth and nails the character perfectly. Sai Pallavi was a revelation as Anjali. She emotes with her eyes and body so beautifully that suits well for the story. Second half seems to be a bit slow even though its thrilling.
While the first half is colourful and lively, the second half is dark and intense. Sameer Tahir has managed to bring out the best out of his actors, thus making Kali a decent movie experience. Gireesh’s cinematography is brilliant, as it creates the most appropriate backdrop for the narrative. Gopi Sundar’s music suits the mood. Overall, it is a simple tale that is engaging and thrilling at the same time. Go for it..!! 🙂
