View Full Version : Kana Kanden - Review

05-16-2005, 02:38 PM


K.V.Anand, have joined in the list of people, who had become director after having been a cameraman in the first place.

A poor mother toils hard by carrying water to households, to give education to her son, and brought him up to be a good man. He is Srikanth, who researches in the area of desalination of seawater, to make it drinkable and he succeeds in this. But either the Government or Banks come forward to help him in this, to eliminate the drinking water problem of the people. His friend Gopika, who stays with him after coming out of her household because they tried to marry her with a person whom she didn't like. She is the one and only person, who stand in support in his efforts. They become lovers and get married. Meanwhile, Gopika meets her former college mate Prithiviraj. He had become a big business consultant. He also helps Srikanth by providing financial support for his research. But in reality, he is shylock, and a dada. Not knowing about this, Srikanth and Gopika fell into his trap. He prepares an agreement, by which, Srikanth have to handover the secret document if he can't pay the money back. Whey they came to know the truth, the noose had already tightened. Whether Srikanth and Gopika is able to come out of this trap or not forms the rest of the story.

Srikanth who has been acting in action oriented films till recently, also acting as caring lover in this film along with action. Both have acted 'very close' in love scenes. Gopika who is acting in a Tamil film after the film 'Autograph' had attracted the audience very nicely in this film. In the scene, where she would enquire the 'Gulphi' Ice vender about the reason for selling it during midnight innocently, and the way she show the feeling after having understood the reason, is just beautiful.

'Gulphi' is another 'Drumstic' matter.

In another scene, where Srikanth would get very angry at Prithiviraj, even without realizing the background of Prithiviraj. Gopika would chide him saying "You are an educated person, but behaving like a rowdy". We can enjoy her performance in this scene.

The high light of the film is the moneylender character, who charges exorbitant interest. The way the Malayalam actor Prithiviraj had done this is indeed superb, real good performance indeed. Its been quite a long time since the Tamil film field had seen a Villain who give this kind excellence performance by expressing minute subtle expressing effectively.

There is a scene, in which Srikanth would smash all the article in the office of Prithiviraj in anger. Prithiviraj would coolly calculate the price of those things and add their price with the original loan amount. Then he would start charging interest on that amount from then on. It is indeed an effective show of villanic way of dealing things.

Vivek's comedy is just wonderful. But with overt sexual intonations, the word 'condom' is being used very liberally as in the family planning advertisement. He would lie to his wife that he is working in T.V. Station. To make it true, when Jeyalalitha speaks in the T.V, he would intervene in the middle, and would call his wife over the cell phone to ask her watch the program, is just superb comedy.

But his lie to get a cup of coffee is just too much. Vanitha had aced as the mother of Gopika. Shalini had acted as the women who suffer in the hands of Prithiviraj.

K.V.Anand had to be appreciated for having selected a different back ground for story for the film. He had taken the movie with great care. This becomes evident, in the scene, where Prithiviraj car would burn. But the dog will come out of it first when the door open. It is very absurd that Gopika abort her child, fearing Prithiviraj. She even says "I have 'saved' our child from Prithiviraj".

Subha have written the story and dialogues. Kanal Kannan's stunts are very good. Sounderajan's camera work is just superb. Especially lightings are soothing. Vidhyasagar's songs will become hit. The song 'Kalai Arumbi' is a beautiful melody.

A very good movie, if you discount the first 5 minutes and the climax. They had taken the "kanthuvatti" matter, and have handled it quite well.

The first half is all about Srikanth and Gopika's love, and is filled with extremely lovely scenes. There is always an undertone of naughtiness but they never cross the line and the movie is very enjoyable. There is a short scene when they cut between the bedroom of Srikanth/Gopika, and daily mudane stuff happening outside.....with the background music it is amazing stuff.

There is also a professor, who must be the most suggestive professor around. Wonder why my uni didn't have someone like her :ahha:

Prithviraj takes control of the second half, and throughout the movie never loses cool. Whatever he says is always accompanied by a smile, and he does some pretty cruel things. You cannot justify his actions with rationality, and he himself says that in a scene. Scary stuff that there are actually people like him out there.... :00:

Climax is typical Tamil movie sothappal. Srikanth, a PhD holder in Chemistry, shows off his cat burglary skills, and they try do some clever stuff with potassium, the only problem being that Potassium reacts violently with water, as it does in a dry state.

A good watch overall. Even if nothing else please you, there are some interesting shots, which are well worth watching. And then there is Gopika. Heart. Skips. Beats.

The following are couple of scenes that were really outstanding.
1. The child which helps Srikanth pick the fallen sheets off his half built factory saying "Please build your factory soon, and use up all the water, so that next time it want take our possessions" (the kid lives in a shanty area near the sea)
2. Gopika dreaming Prithviraj is killing her baby. She tries to move her feet as Prithviraj throws the baby, but she can't. Nice shot given that it is a dream.... :)

And then there is Gopika. Heart. Skips. Beats.

You sold me the movie, right there, my man.. right there.. v-'s must watch list and bestest revenge on sith.. :D

Thanks Dinesh.. Seems like a pretty interesting movie.. :D
