Kadugu is a much-needed comeback for Vijay Milton’s desire to be in the director’s queue. It’s a soft story with a strong message, and as from the audience point of view, Kadugu needs to be applauded for the way the message has been displayed. It is definitely a gamble when it comes to casting and Vijay Milton after his gritty drama Goli Soda has put in the right tempo to match his ability as a director.
The stories revolve around the characters of the movie, and the plot manages to keep the audience pulse tick at the right speed. This urge for good cinema is always there, and from the perspective of makers, they just have caught the right pulse to encourage people flowing to the big screen to watch a good film rather than commercial cinema. Kadugu is definitely a movie to watch out for.
Kadugu joins the list of unexpected gems that arrive in theaters this quarterly year. Vijay Milton nicely concocts a mix of emotions, a message, and sentiments in right proportions. The same amount of appreciation must go to the casting, and Rajakumaran stands as equal to Bharath who has turned grey with his portrayal of self- centered youngster.
Vijay Milton has shown up his anger with the society with his dialogues, and the characters in the movie have traveled along with his emotion. The narration needed the support from the dialogue writers, and the support was offered to full extent. Rajakumaran is a gamble for such a plot, and he grabbed the golden chance and perfectly delivers emotions, anger, and dialogues to the maker’s will. Radhika Prasidha, Bharath Seeni, Venkat Subha and director A.Venkatesh have excelled in their roles.
Technically the movie fits in the runtime with montage songs along with a pleasant BGM from Arunagiri. The storyline is simple, and the message is as gentle as it can get. Kadugu is a much watch film.
A strong, wealthy man can be shaken by a joker when he provokes him. Only the situation allows a man to be a villain or a hero. There is no need to punish a guy who always commits mistakes and instead of turning him even worse, rather correct him and make him realize his mistakes and that might be a help for the people who believe themselves. How one realizes his mistakes is what Kadugu is all about.
Kadugu Movie Review Rating: 3.25/5
