The teaser of Chiyaan Vikram’s next film Kadaram Kondan was launched on the auspicious Pongal day. The teaser presents well-mounted action sequences, shot on a grand scale in Malaysia. The plot seems to be centered around a smart criminal named KK and how the cops led by Vikram bring him down. The identity of KK isn’t revealed. Vikram sports a full-fledged grey-haired, bearded look for the first time and comes across in a pretty intense, hunky manner.
Ghibran’s background score and Srinivas Gutha’s camera work go a long way in giving Kadaram Kondan a Hollywood look and feel. Director Rajesh Selva is back with his second film after Kamal Haasan’s Thoongavanam back in 2015. The director shows his taste for action yet again; the teaser overall presents Kadaram Kondan in a similar light as Thoongavanam. The film also has many lesser known actors, with Akshara Haasan being the only other known face apart from Vikram. Veteran actor Nasser’s son Abi Hassan makes his acting debut, pairing up with Akshara.
Vikram badly needs a hit now after back to back below-par outings with Sketch and Saamy Square. We have to see if Kadaram Kondam gives him and his fans some respite. The teaser of KK promises a well-made action flick which would hopefully have an exciting screenplay as well. Let’s wait and watch.
