Director : Lokesh Kanagaraj
Producers : S R Prabhu, S R Prakash Babu, Tiruppur Vivek
Music Director : Sam CS

Hero Karthi’s intense drama, Kaidhi has been carrying a decent buzz among the audience. Being directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the film has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it goes.

Story:
In order to kill a group of five cops, who seize crores worth of drugs, a drug-dealing gang targets the police intelligence office with the help of an informer. In the process, they supply drugs based liquor to a private police party. To rescue them an officer named Vijay(Narain) takes the help of a just-released prisoner Delhi(Karthi). Will the officer be able to save his mate’s life? Who is Delhi and what is his backstory? How will Delhi go all out to help the police? forms the rest of the story.

Plus Points:
Karthi
Screenplay
Casting

Minus Points:
Starting Portion
Cliché Emotion at the start

Technical Aspects:
The cinematography by Sathyan Sooryan is top-notch as he canned the film in the night-mood effect nicely. The framing and camera lighting has been used with a perfect texture. Editing work by Philomin Raj is okay but he should have chopped close to ten minutes of the first half to make things more appealing.

Music by Sam C. S is engaging as his background score works largely and breaths life into the second half. The film has no songs so there is no need to discuss the topic. Coming to director Lokesh Kanagaraj, he is one of the talents to look out for. The way he handled a simple point with crystal clear detailing will be appreciated by the audience. Having a star like Karthi in the hands, he would have done a formulaic commercial film but instead, he chooses to make an experimental film that is highly appreciable. If he continues to make new-age films like Kaidhi, Lokesh will surely go places in the future.

Verdict:
On the whole, Kaidhi is a serious and dark crime drama that impresses its target audience. Kaidhi is an easy one time watch during the Diwali season.
