Movie Marathon V.3 # 196 After the debacle of Thodari and Thangamagan, Ace Actor Dhanush is back with the powerpacked performance in directorial venture of R.S. Durai Senthil Kumar. The Story revolves around the twin brothers Kodi and Anbu, their lives, love interests and their fight against a toxic Mercury dumping factory in the township. Dhanush's performance was top notch. He was too brilliant in both characters. Trisha, WOW, she delivered her career best performance. Dubbing was the only negative in her performance. Anupama who .debuted in Premam was the real surprise for me that she acted out in ease. Karunas, though in a small role, but was good. Sharanya, as usual a good mother character was an easy job. The movie had some clichés but the story and screenplay was engaging. Durai did an excellent job in narrating this story. The first half was good with romance, comedy and some action and turns into a serious one in the second. Santhosh Narayanan's Background Score added spice to this flick. Songs were hummable and the background score was really apt to the play. Action Choreography fared well. Camera-work, Lighting all worked well .. All in whole, an above average and engaging Political Thriller with mesmerizing performances from Trisha & Dhanush My rating 7 on 10
Kodi is a different movie for dhanush, where he is playing a dual role, one as a politician and other as normal person working in college, he is seen good on screen with some good dialogues and romance in the first half of the movie in politician character ,the story turns up with a good challenging thrill from second half while he opposes the opponent his love with complex problems, good twists in story line to thrill the movie,there are no good songs and comedy track is weak, Rerecording is OK, anupama's role is OK for one pair in which she entertain in comedy on few scenes in first half , but main highlight is Trisha's performance in second half , playing a negative role awesome role for her in the movie.
Just watch this. I wish I could explain in Tamil. Great explanation of political Tangles. Great Acting by all. Great Acting by Dhanush.(Needs separate mention) Great emotions. Good love. Great depiction of human nature and how it gets badly influenced by material needs and pursuit of false fame. Excellent BGM and songs. Arguably best Tamil movie of 2016. Nowadays quality of these movies is too good. People are actually starting to think more. You could see in a scene, where the use of wits to mesmerize people is badly ridiculed and focuses on what really matters when they go up on stage to say anything. Its not about how people give influential speeches, its about what they do.
"Your expectations will go down after watching first 15min automatically. Only direction slightly saved us. Dhanush in two forms and trisha's performance will be the only highlight of the movie" My rating- 2.5/5 (watch it for timepass) Positives- 1.)Dhanush and Trisha- Both of their performance was superb and it entertained viewers 2.)Fast paced direction and it wont bore us 3.) Good message at end 4.)Cinematography and edits 5.)songs Negatives- 1.) Outdated script 2.)Cliched scenes Is it a must watch? No. Overall- Just watch it for timepass. My rating- 2.5/5 (watch it for timepass)

A Political drama set in village background with good dose of commercial elements. Dhanush never done this kind of role previously people see a new angle in Dhanush acting in this movie. Santosh Narayan music and background scores are plus points in this movie.Director R.S. Durai Senthilkumar had done a good job in this movie he never made audience feel boring in his previous movies Ethir Neechal and Kaaki Sattai too . There are no scenes in this movie to make audience dizzy. Kodi surely is a block buster of this Deepawali. As a fan of Dhanush i feel satisfied for this stuff in this movie. I was much dissatisfied with his previous releases but Kodi is a relief from both of these movies.
