“Keedaa Cola” : A Marvelous Techniacal Brilliance With Pinch Of Comedy
, Tharun Bhascker’s Keedaa Cola Review for his strong rapport with young audiences, presents “Keedaa Cola,” a crime comedy that boasts an ensemble cast. The movie premiered today amidst high anticipation, promising an intriguing blend of humor and suspense.
The story revolves around Vaasthu (Chaitanya Rao), who grapples with Tourette syndrome, residing with his grandfather Varadharaju (Brahmanandam) while selling patient simulators to make ends meet. When a mishap damages a simulator, his employer initiates legal action against him. A bizarre incident involving a cockroach in a soft drink purchased for his grandfather leads Vaasthu to file a consumer forum case for compensation, guided by his lawyer friend Lancham (Rag Mayur). Their paths cross with Jeevan (Jeevan Kumar), an aspiring Corporator, leading to a series of unexpected events.
True to Tharun Bhascker’s style, “Keedaa Cola” carries his signature situational humor. The second half shines with engaging sequences and a thrilling, chaotic conclusion. Bhascker’s comedic flair is evident, utilizing specific visuals for added humor, as he previously highlighted in promotions.
Instances like Bhascker prompting Jeevan Kumar to speak in English, an old song playing when Bhascker mouths cuss words, Vishnu Oi’s amusing antics, and Raghu Ram’s encounters with professional killers offer rib-tickling moments. Bhascker’s portrayal of Naidu is commendable.
Jeevan Kumar, Rag Mayur, Chaitanya Rao, and Vishnu Oi deliver standout performances. Technically, “Keedaa Cola” excels with vibrant soundtracks and impressive visuals. The film maintains an appropriate runtime of 2 hours, suiting its crime-comedy genre.
The primary shortcoming of “Keedaa Cola” lies in its paper-thin plot. While the second half delivers entertainment, the story lacks depth to elevate the film significantly. The initial segment falls short, primarily focused on character introductions with few engaging moments. Some jokes miss the mark, contributing to pacing issues, especially in the slower-paced first hour.
Brahmanandam, though impressive, has limited screen time, disappointing fans of the veteran comedian.
Vivek Sagar’s lively background score and AJ Aaron’s splendid cinematography stand out as the film’s pillars. Both aspects significantly enhance the viewing experience, supported by commendable production values and decent editing.
Director Tharun Bhascker’s intent to provide an eccentric experience is evident, and his strength in extracting compelling performances from the cast shines through.
“Keedaa Cola” stands as a watchable crime comedy-drama, offering an engaging second half and a frenzied finale. Bhascker’s mark is evident in various sequences, and the humor in the latter part resonates well. Despite the lack of a robust storyline and an underwhelming first half, the film’s quirky moments, situational humor, and technical finesse make it a decent choice for a weekend watch.
