Performance: Vijay Antony as Bharath and Kaashi performed well. Vijay Antony does a superb job. His roles have been executed well. Anjali got very limited screen space but she did well though she doesn’t have any scope for performance. Sunaina is ok in her flashback role. Madhusudhan as Rayudu justifies with his role. Yogi Babu, Vela Rammoorthy, Nassar and others performed accordingly.
Technical: The basic story line of Kaasi is very interesting. It’s written well. Background music of Kaasi by Vijay Antony is good. Cinematography by Richard M Nathan is alright. Dialogues are meaningful and elevate the proceedings well. Editing is okay. Production values of Kaasi by Vijay Antony Film Corporation are decent. Coming to the director Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi, he has chosen an interesting theme for Kaasi.
Analysis: Overall Kaasi is an average entertainer movie. It needs a fine execution to make it work at all levels. The way Vijay Anthony is seen finding his father in Kaasi is shown in an unnatural way. Vijay Antony’s Kaasi also has a strong mother sentiment. The first half of Kaasi has nothing new to offer. However, some twists and turns make the second half interesting and engaging.
