Story:

Kakki Sattai is the story of Mathimaran [Siva Karthikeyan], an ordinary constable who aims to contribute to the society, but often gets quashed by his senior officer [Prabhu]. Mathimaran leads an ordinary life with his mother and sister till he gets hitched with unexpected case. Eventually, Mathimaran starts his investigation on Organ trafficing and understands many prominent people are involved in smuggling of human organs. Mathimaran keeps visiting many hospitals for clues and meets a nurse Divya [Sri Divya] in the process and falls head over heels for her. Will Mathimaran succeed in finding human organ smuglers? Forms the crux of Kakki Sattai…

Performances:

Siva Karthikeyan has delivered a subtle performance. He got the opportunity to entertain his fans through his regular comedy and boy-next-door looks in the first half. Befittingly, Siva gave a confined performance in the second half without exaggerating much.

Sri Divya has done her parts well. She looks very regular. Her make over could have been better.

Vijay Raaz could have easily pulled out the baddie role with mannerisms and powerful looks. He ended up being so common and underrated with casual body language.

Imman Annachi, Mayilsamy brings few laughs in the scenes like ‘Harahara Mahadevaki…’. Manobala is equally entertaining but seems extended.

Among others, Prabhu has given a majestic performance in a slick yet powerful role.

Technical Analysis:

RS Durai Senthil Kumar’s script is fine. Though it falls to usual Police diaries, Kakki Sattai is unique in its own way. The one-film-old film maker fails to offer an interesting screenplay and narration, like his first film.

Anirudh Ravichander has rendered elevating background scores that stands as a backbone throughout the movie. Songs are well choreographed and well shot, but placement could have been better.

Cinematographer M Sukumar takes the credits for colourful presentation. Editing could have been crisper.

Analysis:

Kakki Sattai offers nothing new to a Tamil cinema lover, apart from Siva Karthikeyan’s performance seeming to be fresh unlike other stars who portray larger than life image for Police stories.

RS Durai Senthil Kumar’s narration seems better in his first film than second, on a declining note. Director could have concentrated more on villain role, viewers doesn’t get to see even half of the different touch that they get to see in Siva Karthikeyan’s role has an impact

With the story of an undervalued cop who rises to the supremacy, finally; Director made many compromises to treat Siva Karthikeyan fans in the first half with few laughs here and there and a major twist before interval [surprisingly after 80 mins after the movie has begin]. Second half traverses much predictable that ends up with an inevitable climax.
