Kabadadaari – Review by Naveen


A faithful remake


– Review

Shakti (Sibiraj) is an upright ambitious young traffic cop in Chennai but his biggest dream is to work in the crime department. Whenever he asks his superiors for an opportunity, they make fun of him.

When Shakti happens to see three skulls in a flyover construction site, he starts digging into the case thinking that it could be cold-blooded murder.

To his surprise, Shakti comes to know that thirty-five years ago an officer from the archaeological department, his wife, and their only daughter had gone missing.

The three skulls found were matching the age of the missing case. To investigate further, Shakti approaches Ranjan (Nassar), a drunkard retired cop who investigated the case thirty-five years ago.
Meanwhile, a senior yet small-time journalist (Jayaprakash) also offers to help Shakti. Can these three unsolve the mystery?

Pradeep Krishnamoorthy’s ‘Kabadadaari’ is the official Tamil remake of Kannada hit ‘Kavaludaari’. The Tamil version is a faithful remake but the director has tried to fasten the pace through a racy editing pattern to suit the taste of the Tamil audiences.

Sibiraj has tried his best to play the upright cop Shakti. He looks fit to play the man in Khaki. He suits the role well.

The remaining cast have delivered what was expected of them. Veterans Nassar and Jayaprakash keep the audience engaged with their seasoned acting.

Simon K King’s background score is a big plus for the film, and Rasamathi’s cinematography is good. Editor Praveen KL has presented a racier version.

The first half is completely engaging, however there is some slag in the second half. The movie will keep the audience engaged throughout its run time.

Rating: 3 out of 5
