Behind the Movie KAK: Hero Sharwanand is although talented and versatile, he never got into the groove. He is now a producer with this flick, directed by Anish Kuruvilla with ensemble starcast of Sreehari, Priya Anand and others. Let us see, whether Sharwanand will win or lose Crores with this?
In the Movie KAK: Story starts with introduction of Vamsi (Sharwanand), Maya Master (Sreehari), Chitti (Lakshman) and Bujji (Nischal), a robbery gang. Each of them are experts in their own areas of Theft tricks. Vamsi is a small time thief, excellent at crawling tallest of buildings while Maya Master is proficient at opening lockers. However, they plan big to rob a Diamond House which is under heavy surveillance. Here comes the first glance of Vamsi's flashback with lover Sathya (Priya Anand), who is seperated now.
As team successfully completes burgling the House, Maya Master backstabs them by killing Chitti and Bujji to run away with money. On the other side, Police Officer Ranjit Kumar (Vinay arma) and two more of rival thieves chase Maya and Vamsi. What happened next? Will Vamsi catch Maya to get the money back for sake of Sathya? All these form the rest.
Values of the Movie KAK: Strictly speaking, stories which revolve around burglary manadatorily need exciting chases, intelligent and twistsing puzzle like situations to keep audience on edge of the seat. Director Anish Kuruvilla has shown no such ease in handling the subject. In fact, the plot was new but treatment lacked in acceleration. Screenplay was sordid and thus is the direction. Thanks to good cinematography of Rakesh and Naveen while background score of Shaktikanth was also not so bad. Dialogues brought casual and rough coloring to the entire backdrop. Marthand's editing could have been littel sharper. Production values of Sarvaa Arts are also okay.
Performance wise, Sharwanand has shown varied emotions and his acting skills can't be re-examined. Presence of Sreehari enhanced the total output and he was just superb. Priya Anand was a beauty and her chemistry with Sharwa was authentic. Of the remaining, everyone has done their parts well.
Out of the Movie KAK: Director Anish Kuruvilla has simply wasted a new concept with half baked script. Instead of inducing much needed thrills, the film lacks in pace. Second half is rleatively far better compared to first. Robbery scene which form the core of main plot is weakly picturized. There was a flavor of Tamil films smelled in undercurrent dealing this theme. No where do we get deeply involved into the storyline due to too and fro narration into present and flashback. Anish misses his focus plenty of times confusing the patrons.
The only saviors for KAK are Sreehari, Sharwanand and Priya Anand's presence. If proper care was taken in adding a right mix of exhilarating episodes, movie would have been definitely a different experience. But for now, it is disappointing. Even the commercial result may also be same.
