Seldom are Tamil film fans treated to a fast paced, slick movie like Kaakha Kaakha.
Directed by Gautham of Minnale fame, Kaakha Kaakha is that rare amalgam of love, action, tragedy, scintillating music and superb photography. Fine performances by the lead characters, a tight script and crisp dialogs add to the charm of this movie.
The movie centers around a dedicated police officer and "encounter" specialist Anbuselvan (Suriya) and his lady love, a math
teacher Maya (Jothika).
Anbuselvan arouses the wrath of hardcore criminal Pandiya (Jeevan) when he guns down the hoodlum's brother Sethu. An enraged
Pandiya swears revenge on the cops responsible. He warns Anbu that he would kidnap his girlfriend Maya and make him suffer.
Keeping his promise of wreaking destruction on the policemen, Pandiya's brutal attack comes soon after Anbu's wedding.
Pandiya and his henchmen shoot Anbu and throw him into a lake. Believing Anbu to be dead, the gangsters cart away Maya to
their lair and plan to sell her to a brothel.
But the badly injured Anbu manages to elude death and goes after Pandiya in an effort to rescue Maya.
The final fight scene between Anbu and Pandiya on a narrow bridge leading into rough seas has been beautifully shot in
Every song in Kaakha Kaakha is a treat to the ears.
Our favorites were Uyirin uyire, Ondra irenda aasaigal and Ennai Konjum matri. Shot on a private beach in the Andamans,
Uyirin uyire has been picturized beautifully and is just awesome. It's been a while since we derived so much pleasure
watching and listening to a Tamil film song.
Suriya, Jothika and Jeevan are very effective in their respective roles. No crude overacting here.
This movie touches upon that unique Indian invention to get rid of alleged criminals without due process of law - the
so-called encounters in which the police gun down alleged bad elements in cold blood and make it appear as if they were
killed in self-defense. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
