Kaaki Sattai Movie Review
– A cop story with more comedy than action
With Kaaki Sattai, Siva Karthikeyan has promoted from being a comedy entertainer to a serious action hero. Director Durai Senthilkumar has picked up the right pulse with lots of humor. Even though, the script lacks the seriousness and grip at times, in the end it manages to be a wholesome entertainer for the family.

- • Siva Karthikeyan's appeal with people of all age groups
- • Imman Annachi's sense of humor
- • Trisha looks prettier than ever and the supporting cast has done a great job.
- • Prabhu's limited but memorable part
- • Good Cinematography and foot tapping songs by Anirudh
- • Too much comedy in a serious script
- • Feels lengthy at times and few logical loopholes
Siva Karthikeyan has done what he's best at. His looks will appeal to everyone which is a plus and it wouldn't be surprising if he see him in a complete serious role in the near future. Sri Divya is the typical Tamil heroine with not much acting to do. Imman Annachi is at his best and a great side kick while Prabhu shows he's the veteran one more time.The Team
Director Senthilkumar has crafted a script for Siva Karthikeyan rather than fitting the actor into a story. It's a safe bet for the producers but it's surprising to know he directed a much better movie like 'Ethirneechal' earlier. The movie is engaging mostly except for the slow parts featuring Mano Bala and some extended scenes. Cinematography is impressive especially in the song 'Kadhal Kan Kattudhe'. Anirudh has done a great job with the songs but background score is not up to the mark.
Kaaki Sattai wins by being a family entertainer without any unwanted glamor and double meaning dialogs which will easily make it a popular choice among the general public.
Bottom line – An assured entertainer for the entire family with plenty of comedy and action sequences!
