MR. KK MOVIE REVIEW

Kadaram Kondan (transl. Conqueror of Kadaram) is a 2019 Indian Tamil-language action thriller Movie directed by Rajesh Selva and produced by Kamal Haasan. The Movie stars Vikram in the lead role and Akshara Haasan and Abi Hassan in supporting roles. It was shot between September 2018 and January 2019, and released on 19 July 2019, along with its Telugu-dubbed version Mr. KK. It is an official remake of the 2010 French film Point Blank.

Vasu (Abi Hassan) and Aatirah (Akshara Haasan) begin their life in Malaysia, and as they're expecting their child, enters KK (Vikram) who's needed by a gang, and Vasu is forced to bring out an injured KK from hospital, and gets framed. As Cops are on the hunt for KK and Vasu, they realise there are moles within the department as well, and now it's upto KK and Vasu to escape from the threats and rescue Aatirah.

Review: 

The protagonist of Mr KK, KK (Vikram) is a mysterious figure – a fact that holds true even after the film ends. Is he a super-cop, an undercover agent, a double agent or a master criminal? The film doesn’t want you to worry about such details. All you need to keep in mind is that he’s a badass – the kind who lights up a cigar when a gash on his abdomen is being stitched. And Vikram essays the character by turning on his star power to the fullest. The character might hardly be a stretch for Vikram the actor, but for the star, it’s a great chance to play to the gallery. In that sense, one could call Mr KK Vikram’s Billa moment. All the Movie requires from him is swag, and that he delivers in oodles.

Mr KK is the remake of the 2010 French action thriller À Bout Portant (or Point Blank as it is internationally known), but it also shares quite a few similarities with Rajesh Selva’s Cheekati Rajyam (which is the remake of another French hit Sleepless Night). Just like that Movie, we get a kidnapping and blackmail, with twists that involve dirty cops and cover-ups giving us a bit of deja vu.

Vasu (Abi Hasan) is a trainee doctor who saves KK’s life after he has been involved in an accident and admitted in the hospital. But, this move of his leads to his pregnant wife (Akshara Haasan) getting kidnapped. To save her, he now has to help KK, who is wanted by cops, to escape from the hospital. But soon he realises that the only way to save his wife and himself is to team up with KK, who is also wanted by criminals. What makes the Movie somewhat different from its French counterpart is that it puts the focus on KK as the protagonist rather than Vasu.

The action scenes make Mr KK a visceral experience, even if Rajesh Selva’s Moviemaking falls short on flair. As long as we get a chase of shootout, the film feels thrilling enough. But the quieter moments, like the initial scenes that set up the story, make one restless. Thankfully, Ghibran’s energetic wall-to-wall score lends the Movie momentum and Vikram ensues we don’t leave disappointed.

Plus Points:

Vikram looks super sharp in his salt and pepper look. He does not have much to do in the first half but once the film catches pace in the latter part, Vikram is good in his stylish avatar in all the action sequences.

Akshara Haasan is very good as the pregnant lady and does a wonderful job in her role. Be it her expressions or body language, she was quite impressive. The film completely runs on Vikram and Abi Hassan and the young actor has done well in his crucial role. He as a helpless husband has done a good job with his expressions and body language.

The second half is where the action part picks. Special mention should go to Ghibran’s background score as it is terrific. Even the dull scenes in the first half are elevated well with his BGM. A car chase scene in the second half is shot supremely well.
One of the biggest drawbacks is that the Movie lacks good action sequences. The posters and teasers promised that the film will be full of action but that is not the case. Vikram hardly has any fights and the one which he does look quite ordinary and do not provide any thrill.

The narration is also jaded as Vikram’s motive behind the case is not shown clearly. Everything happens too quickly in the second half. The director wastes too much time to bring Vikram into action and makes the audience quite restless in the first half.

The thrills showcased are also quite routine and do not boast of anything new. The hero character is not elevated and this is where the Movie falls flat in many places. In many scenes, the character of Abi Hassan dominates Vikram and this aspect does not help the film one bit. The thrills which you expect from the action sequences featuring an actor like Vikram has not been showcased at all.

Technical Aspects :

Technically, the Movie is top-notch. Camerawork by Srinivas is superb as the Movie has an international look with its visuals. The setup is good and the production values by Kamal Haasan’s company are perfect. Ghibran breathes life into the Movie with his BGM. Action sequences are ordinary and do not give that expected rush. Telugu dubbing is perfect and so was the editing aspect.

Coming to the director Rajesh Selva, he has chosen the premise well but has failed to narrate the Movie in a thrilling manner. There are suspense and thrills but the manner in which they are showcased do not provide any adrenaline rush which a thriller should generate. He has killed Vikram’s role and made him dull in the Movie.

Verdict :

On the whole, Mr. KK is an ordinary suspense thriller which does not have many things going its way. The so-called adrenaline-pumping action sequences are missing and the narration is also jaded. Vikram disappoints as his role is not elevated and this can let down his fans and general audience who come to see a stylish Vikram with a new makeover. Action lovers can give this Movie a shot but there is nothing much new and thrilling that is being showcased here.
