Two Line Reviews - #221

Movie: Ko (Thamizh, 2011)

Plot: A News journal photographer helps a student-politics outfit in its quest for election victory against two supposedly corrupt veteran politicians. A bomb blast during one of their rallies results in the death of the hero's friend among others and with vital clues from the recordings of the event that day, he unravels the men behind the bombing. In between all this is his romantic duel with an editor who helps him in his search.

  • The twist in the second half of the film is its core and that part has been covered quite well.
  • The casual performance of Jiiva, a good show (towards the end) by Ajmal & the attractive looks of the tall 'The Rock' eyebrow-ed lass Karthika help in making the watch a better experience.
  • The strenuous location hunt for songs (Gala gala, Amali Thumali), picturisation of duets and decent cinematography are other pluses.
  • Harris's songs are pluses;The club song wasn t given its due thanks to some poor picturisation.
  • The very first hour, with its wayward screenplay and kiddish sequences, is a dampener.
  • It is understandable that the message being conveyed is 'The camera is mightier than the cartridge'. But the ever-clicking hero's show to stress on that point is amusing.
  • The way the new Chief Minister is handled is a mockery.
A 'Passable entertainer'. Nothing more, Nothing less.
