Kallattam – Review by Naveen

Average cop thriller

Kallattam

– Review

Having cranked the camera for several films, G Ramesh forays into direction with ‘Kallattam’. Starring actors Nanda, Richard, Sharika among others, the movie joins the list of police thrillers in Kollywood. Having been marketed as a investigative thriller, does it live up to its hype?

The story is set in the neighbourhood of Mylapore, where Mahendran (Richard) lives with his family.
The sequence of events starts after Mahendran’s daughter gets injured in an accident, following which he rushes her to a hospital.

However, as the cost of treatment quoted is high, Mahendran runs around to raise the cash. Just when everything seems set, the money goes out of his hands. It is here that Tamilarasan (Nanda) comes on board and takes up the case.

How he finds the motive of the accident, the subsequent theft and why Mahendran was targeted, forms the rest of the story. While the plot sets into motion in an interesting manner, it loses steam along the way. The screenplay could have been far more tight, while the dialogues are average.

Performance-wise, Nanda, who is seen in police avatar after ‘Vellore Maavatam’ makes an impact. He suits the role of an intelligent cop to the hilt.

Richard who is back on screen after a long time, aces his character of a tragedy-struck father, who is caught in a web of mystery. However it is actor Ilavarasan playing a police constable, who walks away with all the honours. The other characters do not make much of an impact.

On the technical side, the vast experience of director Ramesh comes across in few places, while music by Umar Ezhilan is passable.

With White Horse Production bankrolling the film, production values too could have been better.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
