- • Karthi's ease of acting in a role he's really comfortable in.
- • Lakshmi Menon's looks that match the storyline
- • Rajkiran performs amazingly well and Kovai Sarala is equally good
- • Thambi Ramaiah in his usual best
- • Some noteworthy scenes
- • Songs are not as catchy as it should have been
- • An action packed movie misses the velocity in stunt sequences
Komba Karthi is a good guy who beats anyone who indulges in bad acts. He loves Lakshmi Menon and marries her but he doesn't like his father-in-law Raj Kiran much. It's all about his realization and the bond he develops later.The Cast
Without a doubt, Karthi is easily the man who carries 'Komban'with ease of performance and impressive acting. He is aptly supported by Raj Kiran, Thambi Ramaiah and Kovai Sarala. The villains are not their best but serve the purpose while Lakshmi Menon manages to pass with her part.The Team
Director Muthiah didn't have a stronghold on the script in the first half but he manages to make things much better in the second. The movie is full of commercial elements with multiple songs and fights but is good as a whole package.
GV Prakash Kumar has delivered mediocre music for the movie but cinematography is great. If the stunt scenes have been reduced a bit and the run time reduced with a strong focus on storyline, 'Komban' would have been much better than it is now! A movie worth the time spent in a cinema hall.
Bottom line – A close to life, authentic village story boosted by Karthi's memorable performance.
Certified Fresh – Yes!
