Kokki
Reviewer's Summary - Good

Language: Tamil
Year: 2006
Actors: Karan, Sanjana, Shakthi Kumar, Kotta Srinivasa Rao, Manikka Vinayagam
Director: Prabhu Solomon
Producer: Sethu, Vinith Kokeya, R.Balasubramaniam
Music: Dhina
Dialogs: Prabhu Solomon
Story & Screenplay: Prabhu Solomon

A fine performance by actor Karan is the highlight of this offbeat film.

As the poor barber Kokki Samy caught in a bad situation not of his making, Karan brings life to the character.

Kokki comes to Chennai to assist his foster father Subburaj (Malaysia Vasudevan), who runs a barber shop in the city.

Local don Uppiliappan (Kotta Srinivasa Rao) is a firm believer in astrology and wakes up daily only to the sight of Lord Ayyanar. One day, Uppiliappan's first sight falls on the barber Kokki. Since things go so smashingly well for Uppiliappan that day, he orders Kokki to be brought to his house every morning so that he can look at him immediately after waking up.

But Kokki has found a job abroad and is not keen to oblige Uppiliappan. This angers the don, who gets some corrupt cops to foist a false case against Kokki.

While trying to escape from the police, Kokki barges into Raji's (Sanjana) room at a girl's hostel setting the stage for a romantic angle to the story. In any case, love is a sine qua non in almost every Indian movie.

Kotta Srinivasa Rao overacts grossly as the criminal Uppiliappan. But that's hardly unusual since villains have usually been stereotyped as crude buffoons in Tamil movies. Aren't there any suave bad guys in Tamil Nadu?

As dazzled as we were by Karan's performance, Sanjana does a fine job too but the script is clearly tailored to highlight Karan.

The narrative seldom sags and Kokki's music adds to the overall charm of the movie.

Ivana Yuvana Madhana and Aa Sonna Ayanavaram are two melodious songs that linger in the memory long after you leave the movie hall. Ivana Yuvana Madhana has also been picturized well adding to the allure of the song.

Kokki brightened our hopes that despite the overall poverty of ideas plaguing the Tamil film industry, a few good movies can still slip through the cracks now and then. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
