Star Performance

Vijay Antony has done what is required for his role. In fact, he chooses the script that falls in his comfort zone. Yogi Babu is the only positive point in the film and he keeps the film alive with his comedy. Others have no significant role.


Kiruthiga has come with a new method of storytelling. Although the story is not much compelling, Kiruthiga’s way of executing the script is good. But, the screenplay should have been much better. Vijay Antony’s script selection is monotonous. He should have tried some other genres. Choosing the sentimental and psycho scripts will not help him to jump to the next level. The production and the technical values are good. Vijay Antony’s BGM and the songs are good as usual.

What’s There?

  • Yogi Babu’s timely comedy
  • Songs and the BGM of Vijay Antony
  • Kiruthiga's way of storytelling is impressive

What’s Not There?

  • The screenplay should have been stronger
  • Boring first half
  • The stars are not utilized properly


Kaali is not a different story but has been told differently. Kudos to Kiruthiga for choosing a different narration path! However, the story doesn’t impress us and at the same time, it is not the worst movie. Although the film couldn’t be compared with “ Pichaikkaran,” it could be watched once!
