Kanam Movie Review
ORE AST REW
- Music Composer:
- Good script, screenplay, and direction
- Beautiful performances by Amala and Sharwa
- The film has some minor flaws too
Kanam is a sci-fi drama scripted and directed by Shree Karthick. The film features “Sharwanand,” Amala Akkineni, Ritu Varma, “Nassar,” Ravi Raghavendra, Yog Jaypee, “Sathish,” and Ramesh Thilak in prominent roles. “S R Prabhu” and SR Prakash Babu produced the film. Jakes Bejoy composed the music.
Aadhi is a youngster, and his friends are Pandi and Kathir. Adhi lost his mother some years back, but still in her memories. The friends accidentally meet Rangi Kuttapaul, a scientist. Rangi was researching time travel for 2 decades and was not successful, initially. But, now, he finds it successful. In a few interactions with Aadhi, the scientist discovers that Aadhi lost his mother when he lost his friend, Michael. Rangi offers Aadhi a chance to save his mother by time-traveling and also asks him to save his friend Michael. Aadhi’s friends also accept this offer as they have their reason for time travel. What happened next? Were they successful? The rest of the film deals with that.
Sharwanand and Amala have done their job exceptionally well. Amala is fantastic with her comeback in Tamil. She was last seen in Karpooramullai in Tamil. Her chemistry with Sharwa is excellent. The rest of the cast has done their part well.
Shree has come up with an interesting story. The screenplay is neat. Some films of this genre have lost their pace after a particular portion. But this film is an exception. Most middle-aged people will go nostalgic while watching the time travel scenes. The old TV ads, the movie, and the relationships add grip to the screenplay. The stars are picked up perfectly and they have done justice to the roles. Though Ritu has nothing significant to do, she fits well in the role and did a decent job. The music, cinematography, and editing are good too.
What’s Not There?
With the solid emotional script and excellent performances, the audience will forget the minor flaws in the film. If you are interested in time travel films and emotional content, this is the best film you can watch this weekend!
