CAST & CREW
Kanithan, starring Atharvaa Murali and Catherine Tresa, was supposed to release in 2015 but got delayed due to some reasons. It has finally hit the screens now. And for Atharvaa, who would be elated with the success of Eeti, would surely have high expectations on Kanithan. Let’s see what this mathematician has in store for us.
A team of students are blamed by the police for a fake certificate felony in which they are not involved. The protagonist, Atharvaa Murali, who is a member of the group, volunteers to seek justice. Atharvaa also works as a TV journalist.
Atharvaa looks charming on screen and essays a meaty role with utmost conviction. And he shakes his legs well too. The fans of Atharvaa would surely be satisfied with his performance. Bollywood actor Tarun Arora, who plays the baddie, intimidates us with his menacing looks. Nowadays Kollywood gets to see stylish villains and Tarun Arora is an addition to this list. Catherine Tresa is good at glamour but she doesn’t have scope to perform. Karunakaran and K Bhagyaraj give convincing performances.
T.N. Santhosh, the director of Kanithan, was assisting A R Murugadoss before taking up direction. And so it is no surprise that Kanithan has similarities to Santhosh’s mentor’s Thuppaki.
Kanithan talks about fake certificate fraud.
What’s not there?
Kanithan is interspersed with all the necessary elements that are required to make it watchable once. However, the absence of a standard way of film making would have made it even better.
