Post the success of Bichagadu, Vijay Anthony has created a good market for himself in Telugu. Every Tamil film of his is being dubbed into Telugu. Kasi is one such film which has made it to the theaters today. Read on to see how the film shapes up.
The story of the film is based on the life of an American doctor played by Vijay Anthony who comes to India to find out who is actual parents are. He goes through various stories only to find out that his father was none other than a religious leader. Well, how did he find out all that is the crux of the story
Vijay Anthony is only the life savior of the film with his decent performance which saves the audience from the torcher. Anjali is just a laughing goat in the film as her role is made silly from the word go. Yogi Babu is the only comedian who makes things a bit better for the audience. His jokes work well in parts. The actor who plays the church father brings some respect to the film. Rest of the supporting cast are laced by Tamil actors who are not that great.
Vijay Anthony fails as a music director as none of his songs create any effect. The film is laced with heavy Tamil flavor and this is clearly visible on the screen. Things get bogged down as lady director Udayanidhi's inexperience is clearly visible in every scene. So many stories are created by her to bring a small story to life.
These stories bore you to death and create an irritating factor at once. The film fails with the lack of depth in any scenario as both the halves plain and boring drama. The way the film is ended only makes some sense here and there.
Lack of emotions
What happens when a simple story is pulled to extreme lengths. The result is nothing but Kasi. Not even single factor of this film works and all we see is some hideous drama filled with subplots. All those who think that Vijay Anthony will welcome you with a strong story will be mistaken heavily as the film offers the same mundane story of finding your roots in a very boring manner.
