Petty thief

Kalavani 2

– Review

Sequels hardly work in Tamil cinema, unless and until they are far ahead and good than their originals. Joining the list is ‘Kalavani 2’, starring Vemal and Oviya in the lead again.

The prequel, which was a surprise blockbuster in 2010, was full of rural flavour, funny and loaded with breezy romance. But the sequel lacks novelty.

Arikki (Vemal) and Maheswari (Oviya) are back after nine years in rural milieu. But they are not the same people we had watched in 2010.

Besides the two lead actors, some other characters have also been retained from the prequel. And there are additions too, in the form of Mayilsamy and Vigneshkanth.

Kalavani 2 is all about the competition Arikki faces from one of his relatives in the local election. Has he emerged triumphant or not forms the crux of the movie.

Though Vemal is good, he has done a routine role. There is no much screen presence for Oviya. Ilavarasu and Saranya Ponvannan are back in action and they are the movie’s assets.

Mayilsamy, Ganja Karuppu and Vigneshkanth are there to add humour quotient, but they are only partly successful. In fact, the film too is like them. But the second half compensates the lacuna of the first half.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
