Bala who is know for giving realistic movies had comes again with one more master piece “Naan Kadavul” movie.
The movie is technically high with some of the breathtaking Visualisation and brilliant background work by Musical Maestro Illayaraja. The movie is nicely constructed with class performances of Aarya, Pooja and other casts which is really made like real Sadhus and beggars. Director Bala with his unique technique of blending realistic with essential cine ingredients makes the movie a racy number which the audience will sit at edge of the seat thriller.
Naan Kadavul is a story begins with a father searching his son which he lost 15years back at Kasi. As per astrologers Aarya was predicted as “Bad Omen”. The father finds his son who becomes a Sanyasi Rudran(Aarya) who had no emotions but had a strength of 1000 elephants. The father brings back his son to home village Malaikovil in South India Tamil Nadu which is famous for Hill temples. On the same place a tough bald baddie(Muthalali (Rajendran) who runs a profitable beggar mafia business using physically challenged humans and makes wealth by getting sympathy from pilgrims as money.
Murugan assistant of Muthalai who lives in fear of his boss with no human feeling on a day kidnaps a blind beggar singer Pooja(Hamsavalli) and forces her to join in their group. The tale once again twists when Nair a baddie enters and make a deal with Muthalai to buy beggars to take them to Malayatoor, Sabarimala and other devotional place at Kerala for begging. The remaining part of the movie is how Rudran rescue and help those oppressed people was visualized in a great manner and ends with an encouraging message.
The strength of the movie is excellent star cast and background score plus music of Illayaraja. Aarya as Rudran does his part well and he does his animal being character into great effect. Actress Pooja acting is convincing and soon she will be praised by all. Villain Characters were portrayed in excellent manner. With Arthur Wilson camera work and Illayaraja’s music perfectly matches the mood and situations of the movie. Minus of the movie is when father identifies his son (Rudran) looks more like a cinema. Director Bala owns a separate track of portraying characters and he once again showed similar character in “Naan Kadavul”. If you are a real Masala movie watcher it’s hard to watch but a real movie lovers who wants new things in every movie it will be the one.
