Kavalai Vendam is an impact-free film, having a rough sketch of romance and comic episodes to tickle the funny bone. On various occasions however, it misses out on clicking the right button, and ends up becoming a train pulled by a bicycle. Director Deekay has lots of questions to answer on what exactly is the story he wanted to convey.

Jiiva pairs up with Kajal Aggarwal for the first time here, and with this pair onscreen, the film offers a huge cast consisting of Bobby Simhaa, Sunaina, RJ Balaji, Mayilsamy and Bala Saravanan. The main catch of the story pertains to Jiiva’s relationship with Kajal Aggarwal, which is broken due to some misunderstandings. Jiiva makes the best of his efforts to bring about the link back together and in the process, comes up meeting with all the other characters in the frame. Talking about performances, it is a standard outing for all those involved – they don’t break out of the box nor do they go away with a frown.

The first half ends on a predictable note with a small twist which may be a surprise for some. Coming into the second, we find some respite as all the characters come together at one place ensuring more space for comedy. The scene at the police station and the birthday party episode would surely bring the roof down, thanks to RJ Balaji and Bala Saravanan. These scenes are really the high points of the film, and will surely be on the rise in comedy channels very soon.

Kavalai Vendam as a script on paper might look like a lot of fun, but it’s the onscreen narration which falls flat. Logic isn’t something which is necessary always, but a solid comic story devoid of the unnecessary adultery would have taken it up leaps and bounds.

The film stands tall thanks to the locations, visuals, costumed and the casting. It’s the technical wizardry that makes the product better than what it actually is, in addition to Leon James music which is trendy and foot tapping. Eventually, what Kavalai Vendam turns out to be is a generic comedy film which is a cat on the wall with regard to a Friday watch. Passable, at best.
