Vishal is one actor, whose many Tamil films have been dubbed into Telugu. These movies were also quite successful. And now the latest film to join the list is Kathakali. Let’s see whether Vishal impresses the Telugu audiences with this thriller.


Nowadays we have got used to seeing a well-employed Indian youth in U.S., who travels to his native country for various reasons. In the film, Vishal heads to India to tie the nuptial knot to Catherine Theresa. Here, there is also another track of a Madhusudhana Rao being killed suddenly.
Here, Vishal is the prime suspect since the families of both Vishal and Rao have a long-lasting enmity. Vishal faces a lot of problems due to this. Does Vishal braves against all odds? Watch the movie to find out.

Star Performances

Vishal is given with a character that has two features. He has understood the nuances of both the characters and has done an earnest job. Catherine Theresa has only little scope to perform. However, she looks good in the movie. 


Though the movie has a simple story, the screenplay and narration are good. However, one gets to see the typical Kollywood scenes in the movie. 
Sometimes one tends to get a feeling as to what genre the movie belongs to. This could have been thought about by director Pandiraj. 

What’s there?

  • You would be interested to know what happens next with the progress of the movie. 
  • The sentimental scenes in the second half are well-conceived.
  • The cinematography of Balasubramaniem is top notch. 
  • The action scenes are choreographed well. 
  • BGM is very impressive. 
  • The second half of Kathakali will keep you glued to the screens. 

What’s not there?

  • The love element doesn’t strike the right chord with the audience.
  • Some songs seem to be unwanted. 
  • Music of Hip Hop Thamizha is average. 


A murder mystery that is laced with the necessary commercial elements, Kathakali can be watched once.
