Critics Review


A Timeless Celebration Of Life

KD is a simple slice of life tale wherein director Madhumita extracts fantastic performances from hercast, making the film a pleasant and interesting watch on screen.(more)

K.D is a well-written, poignant and engaging portrayal of life and relationships, try not to miss the beautiful journey between KD and Kutty.

The warm yellow-tinted daylights and the golden-lit night sequences enhance the mood of the film. One wishes that the music had a bit of restraint at some places. Overall, Madhumitha displays better control over the medium and offers a leisurely paced, bittersweet dramedy(more)

A feel-good, and at times bittersweet, film that is one of the year's sweet surprises.

If there is a misstep, you could say that the representation of KD's sons and daughters as selfish and heartless individuals could have been layered. Barring one of the daughters, no one seems to love the man, who everyone admits was a good father and human. And even when they realise he has come out of coma, they try to find him only so that they could perform the euthanasia ritual. Some might also find the pacing a tad slow, but the world that the director builds is so endearing that we don�t mind the scenes (like the ones with the childhood crush, which has a whiff of Pa. Pandi) that linger on more than they have to.(more)

Madhumitha's Impressively Restrained Drama Treats A Serious Issue With A Lot Of Fun

One part of why the film is so entertaining is the chemistry between the old man and the young boy - the other part is that their characters have been sketched out so well.(more)





A sweet character-driven ride that emotionally connects and holds with natural humour.

The camera work is not great but not bad either. The way the village localities are shown is fine but a few long shots have a drop in clarity. The editing is interesting and there's a small play in some portions of the narration where a few sequences are left open to the audience's interpretation. Fortunately, this has resulted in favour of the film. Music definitely plays a key part in the elevation and the background score is heart-touching at places.(more)

The heartfelt storyline and perfect casting leave a smile on your face

This fact needs to be highlighted considering how filmmakers of considerable repute, and with dozens of millions to spend on production, have failed miserably in this aspect recently.(more)

An Elegantly Crafted Film With Good Old Fashioned Storytelling And Superb Casting

Madhumita dons the artiste's hat with perfection in KD. Whether we want to see what she's saying through the KDs and Kuttys of the world, is up to us. (And I am glad she leaves that up to us.) She takes on only the burden of telling a good story. And that is the really hard thing to do here.(more)
