Kaari revolves around a rivalry between two villages in the Ramanathapuram district for ownership of the temple. In the end, it was decided that the village that won the Jallikattu game would take over the administration of the temple. However, there is one twist to this fight for ownership. The Jallikattu game can only be organized by the family of the jockey Sethu, who moved to Chennai many years ago. What motivates Sethu to return to his village? Which group finally gets ownership of the temple? These questions are the essence of Kaari.
Director Hemant tried to cover several topics in 2 hours and 22 minutes. However, he tried to present them on the periphery. Although Hemant came up with an interesting premise, the action sports drama falters at some points due to the lack of an exciting script. It can be difficult for viewers to understand the trajectory of the antagonist, played by actor JD Chakravarty, in the film. In an attempt to make Chakravarthy’s character ruthless, Hemant ended up giving him an overdramatic look. And he fails to resonate, leaving many fans disappointed who were thrilled to see the actor play the villain.
The entire composition of Kaari plays convincingly. Sasikumar left no stone unturned as he sank his teeth into his character’s skin in this Hemant directorial, and it’s quite evident from his performance. The actor overcame a series of failures before Kaari. However, this time, it seems he can finally break the chain of bad luck with Kaari’s box office success. Keep an eye on Parvati Arun as she gives a stellar performance in her debut film.
Technically, including cinematography and music, Kaari does not disappoint. The cinematography by Ganesh Chandra in this Tamil film is superb. The Jallikattu scenes that appear in the pre-climactic sequence are shot flawlessly. Dee Imman also did a fantastic job on the score. The background score he wrote complements the scenes in Kaari well.
