Kaduva Movie Review

Set in the 1990s, Pala planter Kaduvakunnel Kuriyachan joins forces with the politically strong IG Joseph Chandy.

Every once and again, it’s entertaining to watch a’mass’ thriller. It’s our modern morality tale, with a clear triumph of good over evil, greys and all. It gives audiences a cathartic rush to see the enemy progressively get his comeuppance. And in this post-pandemic era, we could surely use it.

Shaji Kailas returns to Malayalam after a hiatus from the genre he excels at. But the difference between Kaduva and Kailas’ 90s hits like Ekalavyan and Commissioner, or any of the period’s vengeance flicks like Bhoomiyile Rajakkanmar or Dhruvam, is that when the hero gets back at the antagonist, it’s with deliciously ingenious traps, elegant or bombastic speech, and a few punches. Jinu V Abraham’s novel Kaduva has more brawn than brain.

The film has been the subject of several court disputes in recent years, with a Jose Kuruvinakunnel claiming that it is slanderous to himself and his family. Regardless of the case, the film follows Kaduvakunnel Kuriyachan (Prithviraj), a Pala planter in the 1990s, who finds up in a coalition with IG Joseph Chandy (Vivek Oberoi), a politically favored top cop. What begins as a misunderstanding over a piano given to the local church, where a rogue priest has been placed, and escalates into a battle that grows larger and larger, even as the protagonist is imprisoned. The rest of the story revolves around how he defeats the IG, a local SI (Kalabhavan Shajohn), and the priest.

‘Despite its flaws, misogyny, and over-the-top macho, Shaji Kailas’ older films were always entertaining. They were fast-paced, had fascinating, emotionally explosive characters, and, once again, the hero’s vengeful battle back was entertaining to behold. That is sorely lacking here, as is the misogyny. In the first half, Joseph Chandy, SI Dominic, and Fr Robin attack Kuriyachan on all fronts, which keeps us interested because we can’t wait to see how he will respond, but if you were anticipating a seamless, intelligent destruction, the second half will disappoint.

It begins with some cunning political maneuvering, which is intriguing, but eventually ends with punches, which feels like a letdown. And, at 155 minutes and with all the slo-mo, it gets tired at the conclusion. Some issues, like as the conversion of Kuriyachan’s neighboring property into a cremation ground, are never addressed.

Prithviraj is effective as Kuriyachan; he portrays a good balance of force and geniality, making you cheer for the character. The antagonistic IG is played by Vivek Oberoi, and the wicked, petty SI is played by Shajon. The supporting cast, which includes Alencier, Baiju, and Rahul Madhav, is excellent. Samyuktha Menon is attractive, but Seema, who plays a minor role, has more powerful moments on film. Abinandhan Ramanujam’s camerawork is stunning at times, such as after a prison brawl and while driving through a plantation.

If you’re looking for a Prithviraj mass thriller, you might love this one, but don’t expect to be blown away.
