I have nothing much to write about the movie Naan Kadavul – the name portraits the picture, but there is no more reasonable thoughts there to declare someone as god. Keeping away my unbelief, the title has nothing to do with my interest on catching this movie, thus I believe in director Bala’s very unusual plot and showcasing an ever seen cinema. Going on up and down review about this movie, I went on my risk to watch the movie that could not satisfy my intension. But somehow it hurts and felt exotic, which we ever imagined or not. It’s all about an Aghori (ascetic) and oppressed disabled beggars, whom were involuntarily under a dominate underworld don. Those are beggars, uncommon that we meet at our street corners and traffic signals, but what we seen at the movie is crush, whether its certain or imagination is all up to director’s suspect.
Rudran, the main character rules up to expectation is lose in my views; no matter how hard work Arya done to observe the character, which I felt unconnected with others. I think the director must have something in mind, which I can’t understand or I don’t know. The movie is so realistic, where no computer graphics or backup is used. The characters have the distress in eyes and actions with much physical efforts. The abnormal position of arya is stunning, which is an adventure already through media; and except few differences most of his life process has been left blank is great disappoint. The mother sentiment doesn’t workout here, and no more his expressions is shared with others.
The odd disabled people and children got me disbelief. It’s much hater what’s happening under the ground and close up shots which fail to create sympathy, trembles at such deformity and cruelty happen around. But it was very different underworld someone has to imagine with reality, apart it disclose misshapes and unpleasant way of people sharing our world. Heroines get a chance to showcase there talent rarely in Tamil cinema, where Pooja got to perform excellent as a blind! More than any other characters, she impressed me. The boy who overcomes the target, laughs, and makes us laugh with his thought tempting jokes apart kick fake divines.
The busy life at Kasi bank and burning of masses showcases an idea about this place; and the reflection at Ganges of sun dawn and conclude is captured well in advance. It wonders why does director took this much time of 3 years to completer the movie, which could not run more than 2 hours. I feel the movie set into brief loses its head and tail, without a beginning or end, it concludes with lack of expectation. My advice is if you’re a fan of unusual cinema and been a brave heart, go and watch at your courage.
