Kanam Movie Review

Starring : Naga Shourya, Sai Pallavi, Veronika Arora
Director : A.L.Vijay
Producer : Lyca Productions
Music Director : Sam C.S
Rating : 2.5/5

Kanam is one film which has been waiting for its release date for quite some time now. The film has finally found its way to the theatres today and let’s see how the film turns out to be.


Sai Pallavi and Naga Shourya are a couple who abort their child as they are very young in age and also yet to tie the knot. After being separated for five years, they finally tie the knot. But Sai Pallavi does not forget the trauma she went through and always remembers the fact she would have had a five-year-old daughter by now if she did not get her abortion done. The twist in the tale arises when a small five-year-old spirit called Diya enters their life and turns things upside down. Who is this girl? What does she have to do with the couple? and what happens in course of time. That forms the rest of the story.


The film has a solid performance from Sai Pallavi. She is the primary highlight of the movie, and she is the only saving grace in the movie too. She did well within her limitations and impressed everyone. Naga Shourya is decent and looks good in the film. He has delivered a simple yet remarkable performance in the movie. Priyadarshi Pulikonda has played a decent role in the movie which irritates in the beginning but ends on a positive note. The child artist Veronica is too cute and has put her best in the film. The other actors like Gandhari Nithin, Santhana Bharathi, Rekha, Ravi and stunt Silva made their presence felt.

Plus Points:

Sai Pallavi’s Performance
Veronica’s Presence

Minus Points:


Technical Aspects:

The film has a Tamil flavour which is clearly visible through the supporting cast and surroundings. Camera work is outstanding as it showcases the simple set up in a very good manner. But the background score takes away the cake as it elevates the film to a decent level. Production values of the film are decent and so was the editing which was quite crisp.

Coming to the director AL Vijay, he has done an okay job with the film. His concept is good and he starts off the proceedings on an interesting note. But his narration through the second half does not hold much interest as he fails to elevate the key emotions and thrills making the film look quite simple and nothing great.


On the whole, Kanam is an emotional thriller which does not thrill you to a great extent or disappoints you completely. Interesting thrills during the first half and crisp runtime are major assets. But the film falters during the later part as major emotions are not dealt well. As the film runs on Sai Pallavi’s star power, her role is just about okay. All those who are tired of the routine commercial flicks and want to watch an emotional thriller, they can try out this film which ends up as a one time watch this weekend.
