Kanimozhi – Tamil Movie Review
Considering that it was named Kanimozhi, many were under the impression that the film would have some relation to today’s political condition in Tamil Nadu. Fortunately or unfortunately, it does not. On the contrary, it is an age old love story with an overdose of philosophical twists. Both the screenplay and the story of the Tamil flick has failed to impress. But we must say that Sripathy Rangasamy had done a good job considering that this is his debut venture. At least, he has handled the lead characters well giving them individual spaces, albeit very few, to showcase their acting skills, but the actors refuse to make use of it to deliver a very lacklustring performance.
The story centers on a middle class boy Rajesh (played by Jai), who falls in love with a girl (played by Shazahn Padamsee). The strange thing is he never makes an attempt to know the name of his love interest till the end of the film! However, this boy believes that everything in life delivers positive results and hence the girl loves him too. It is when he decides to express his love that everything in his life changes. Will it change for good or for bad is something that you will have to visit theaters to know!
Even in this extremely poor storyline, Jai puts up an average performance as Rajesh. But lead actress Shahzahn Padamsee is an utter disappointment. She manages to look good but puts on only a single expression throughout the movie. The only good part of Kanimozhi is its running time. With less than two hours of screen time, it means less torture for viewers of the Tamil flick.
