Kanithan Movie Review:
Atharva a soft romantic hero proves that he can do action scripts also. He is doing good in action sequences. Kanithan movie is totally different script for atharva.
Atharva plays a young and energetic news reporter for a modest TV where Manobala is playing a role of CEO. Atharva is falling in love with catherin teresa who is daughter of manobala.(The CEO where Atharva works). In the mean time Atharva is getting selected in BBC and his life changes upside down. He and four other unconnected young men got arrested by the police for cheating with fake certificates and documents for 13 crores of loan from a private bank.
Atharva came out in bail and finds there is a fake certificate mafia run by a Burmese gangste.Tarun Arora as the Burmese gangster.The story continues how atharva finds and destroy the mafia. Atharvaa is a perfect fit for the role of the angry young man who uses his brains and brawn in equal measure and he has the right expressions for all the emotions, Catherin teresa needs to do more than roaming around the hero and dancing for songs.
Arvind Krishna’s cinematography is the biggest plus for the film while editor Bhuvan Srinivasan could have put the scissors to use in many scenes that seem never ending.Drums Sivamani in his second outing as music director has given some peppy numbers and the BGM by a newcomer is good with the drums dominating . Full marks to the fight choreographer who has done a great job with all the fights
Watch ‘Kanithan’ for Atharvaa Murali and the well choreographed action sequences.
