Kadamban - A Stunning Forest Ride!
Kadamban is an epic action drama film written and directed by Ragava and produced by R. B. Choudary under Super Good Films and assocait produced by B. Suresh, B. Jeevan, Jithan Ramesh, Jiiva and Arya under The Show People. Arya and Catherine Tresa feature in the leading roles, while Madhuvanti Arun plays a supporting role. Music composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja, cinematography by S. R. Sathish Kumar, edited by Deva, art directed by A. R. Mohan and stunt choreographed by Dhilip Subbarayan.
The film is set in a forest region known as Kadamba. The flick focuses on deforestation and land grabbing by the white collars in order to bring up milestone industries at the homeland of Arya and his people. Arya plays the titular role as a tribal in the movie. His character is inspired by Tarzan. He collects honey in the forest for a living. His tribe come under threat after vested interests try to force them out of their habitat. Kadamba tells the story of a tribal hero who saves his people from forced eviction.
Arya, himself is the biggest highlight of the movie. His masculine body tells us how much effort Arya put in and the hardships he faced in building that body. As the character needs it, Arya spent most of his time with elephants which are hard to handle despite the training. Catherine Tresa for the first time is playing a character like this but did a convincible job. She showed a different level of her acting skills. Madhuvanti Arya did a good job in the supporting role.
Better casting would have done more justice to the movie, as the villains look very weak. Forest protection is one such initiative which is necessary but often neglected. The direction/writer Raghava did a good job bringing that point into the light. While the flick's biggest strength lies in its visual treat. The sceneries hot in real locations are terrific. Cinematography by S..R.Satish Kumar is excellent. Music by Yuvan Shankar Raja suited the scenes very well. Art Director A.R.Mohan did an appreciable job. Stunts choreographed by Dhilip Subbarayan are astounding. Meanwhile, the editing could have been better, for there are jumps at places which obstruct the flow.
Verdict : A Stunning Forest Ride!
Stars : 2/5
