Due to the technological advancements in the world, movies on their pitfalls are essential. A year after the release of Vishal-starrer ‘Irumbu Thirai’ which explored the bad face of growing technology, here comes ‘Kee’, starring Jiiva in the lead role.
Director Kalees has woven an intriguing theme and has presented equally mightly protagonist and antagonist. However, he is not that convincing when it comes to comedy and romantic scenes, which appear forced.
Siddharth (Jiiva) is a hacker and leads a happy life with his father (Rajendra Prasad) and mother (Suhasini). One day, an unexpected incident happens and this connects him with another hacker (Govind Padmasoorya).
While Siddharth is a good soul, the other one is a monster who plays with the lives of innocent people with the help of technology. He manipulates a string of electronic devices including computers and mobile phones.
As Siddharth messes with him, he decides to destroy the loved ones of the protagonist. Now, Siddharth has the herculean task of saving everyone from the monster.
Jiiva is superb and he has put in hardwork expecting a break in ‘Kee’. Nikki Galrani and Anaika Soti have been used for, well, you know what it is. The likes of Rajendra Prasad and Suhasini are good, while Govind Padmasoorya is right choice for his role.
The film is technically strong, thanks to music by Vishal Chandrasekhar and cinematography by Abinandhan Ramanujam. Certain scenes are good, thanks to Kalees’ vision and implementation by the team.
Despite commercial and emotional elements marring the flow of ‘Kee’, the film engages us in parts thanks to a gripping knot and strong performance by the hero and the villain.
