Kodi Review (2016)
Kodi is a political thriller with a gripping story about how far people can go driven by the greed for power. Dhanush plays dual roles of Kodi, the young upcoming politician and his twin brother, Anbu, a college professor whereas Trisha plays the role of Rudhra, a leader in opposition political party.
It would not be wrong to say that Kodi is a performance driven film. Dhanush and Trisha have delivered flawless performances in terms of acting and dialogues. The film’s plot might not be something we have never seen, but the performances make it worthwhile.
Saranya, who plays the mother to the twins and Kodi’s confidant, Kaali Venkat, SAC and other supporting actors have done justice to their roles.
The execution of the simple but unpredictable plot keeps us at the edge of the seat making us think about what is going to happen next.
The music and songs by Santhosh Narayanan are impactful and they rightly elevate the emotions of the scenes.
The dialogues of the film are a major strength. They are intense, meaningful and hard-hitting.
There is nothing absolutely fresh or unique in terms of a revenge theme against a political backdrop.
KODI is a political thriller full of twists and turns that makes it a MUST WATCH!
