Showing his face on and off in Kollywood since his first film ‘Vaayai Moodi Pesavum’ with Director Balaji Mohan and then is continued with ‘OK Kanmani’, ‘SOLO’ and ‘Nadigayar Thilagam’, we knew Dulquer Salman’s ‘Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal’ with the debut director Desingh Periyasamy had been in the great expectation in spite of the wait for more than 2 years! Finally having the release today (28/2/20), let’s see how this film has worked out on screens!


Sid (Dulquer Salman) and Callis aka Kalees (Rakshan) are buddies who live together and have fun with the money they get paid from their professions of game developing and animating. Also, they make lots of money by stealing the graphic cards and other hardware parts from the brand new laptops and electronic gadgets while they purchase and return in online shopping websites. Sid falls in love with Meera (Ritu Varma) who is an orphan and a freelance beautician whereas Callis gets to know Shreya (Niranjani Ahathian) through Sid as Meera’s friend and falls in love with Shreya. However, Prathap (Gautham Vasudev Menon), a police officer who experiences the crime personally, he chases to find the culprits behind the scam of cheating with the electronic parts. Sid and Callis move to Goa with Meera and Shreya for having a new and better life without doing any mischievous crimes. Anyways, Prathap comes in search of them to Goa, Meera, and Shreya without any clue vanish from there. What happens next? Will Sid and Callis get caught? What will happen to Meera and Shreya? What are their backgrounds? Is this still an interesting love story or a robbery story follows in the rest of ‘Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal’!


From the beginning till the end, Desingh Periyasamy has worked well to maintain the thrill which is very appreciative since it is the first-ever film of him. Also, the luxury, fun, locations, cast and the technical aspects like music, editing, and cinematography, had added some more beauty to all the frames in the film. However, the first half was bit lengthier may be because of the establishment of the characters and the core idea, the second half also maintained to hold us with the thrill and is also actually making us wonder if the scam and the crime which is portrayed is possible. Considerably, the entire film had the freshness without giving any exhaustion in the presentation and the screenplay even though a few lags were there.


Looking into the performance of the cast, Dulquer Salman has absolutely been a ‘techie’ darling in the film with his looks, dialogue delivery and mannerism. Like a comedian and as a buddy of DQ, VJ Rakshan’s debut performance was quite decent and funny (ok even if the comedy sequences were not working out in few portions). Adding beauty and as the main character of the film, Ritu Varma has performed so well which doesn’t seem to be a debut performance of her. As a bold and attitude showing girl and as a friend of Ritu Varma, Niranjani Ahathian has performed well. Last but not least, Gautham Vasudev Menon had performed in such a way that will make us think “Oh man! Why didn’t he act in the many films?” No spoilers to reveal on his character!

What works?

1) Performance of the cast

2) Core Idea

3) Cinematography and background score

What doesn’t work?

1) Length of the first half

2) Logic mistakes and lags

On the whole, ‘Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal’ is a fresh film which portrays a neat and interesting play within four to five characters!

Verdict: ‘Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal’ is an absolutely safe play with a fresh idea about stealing!

Ratings: 5/10
