A drama that fails to strike an emotional chord

Kaali looks more like an attempt to serve something to the audience who might have not identified themselves with a film like Vanakkam Chennai. But as the narrative proceeds we are not sure if this is Kiruthiga's cup of tea. The film is starved of surprises and the engagement quotient keeps decreasi...(more)

Kaali does get interesting in its second half, but the narration should have been tighter.

Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi deserves credit for attempting a concept that has so far mainly been used in whodunits to narrate an emotional drama.

The director has used a unique device in the flashback episodes by using Vijay Antony to feature in the "father's" younger days.

Go for it if you enjoy emotional dramas with a social message.

The film has some heart in its story with competent acting and on par technical aspects. Her attempt to narrate an emotional drama like a whodunit thriller has come out with not so desirable results due to the flaws in writing.(more)

Blast from the past
