Technicalities & Performances:
What works the best in this film are the performance of the national award winning hero, Dhanush since it is his first double action role as Twin brothers as well as his powerful dialogues worked well. However Trisha’s expressions and the dialogues mouthed by dubbing artist were little bit out of lip sync. The role of S.A. Chandrasekhar did not drag much attention and seems to be a bad choice.
Though the first half is little slow, the director captures the essential factor in the second half! The cinematography and editing might have been better and few scenes were poorly written at some parts.
For the first time, Dhanush colabrated with Santhosh Narayanan and “Ei Suzhali” song has attracted the viewers instantly.
It’s a come-back movie for Dhanush after Thodari loss, Trisha played an awesome villanism character. On the whole, Kodi is a political thriller movie with a Social Message.
One time watchable for a decent political experience!
