Jyothi Krishna and Ravi Krishna’s ambitious project Kedi starts off promisingly with some rapid fire editing. The opening sequence of a badly battered Ravi lying in a heap of metal stones and how he manages to reach the villains den are stylishly shot. But sadly the second half is too lengthy and lacks entertainment with an over-the-top 25 minutes climax that leaves you exhausted. Jyothi fails to accelerate the sluggish narrative, as the violent love story meanders on for nearly three hours.
Raghu (Ravi Krishna) is a happy-go-lucky youngster who is not serious about his studies or life. He has a great time in college playing pranks with fellow students. His dad (M.S.Baskar) dotes on him and so does his close friends (Suman Shetty & gang). A new girl Priyanka (Tamanna) joins his class and she is the sister of Pukazhenthi (Atul Kulkarni) a powerful gangster turned Minister. Priyanka is born with the silver spoon and the college gets a face lift as her class room is fitted with air conditioner and the canteen gets a hip look.
Priyanka even manages to change the Principal using her brother’s influence and she hates the sight of Raghu whom she considers a creep! Aarthi (Ileana) a maid’s daughter studies in the same class and she has a secret admiration towards Raghu. Seeing the way in which Priyanka treats him, Aarthi gives moral support and motivates Raghu to come above Priyanka who is an all-rounder and best student in the university. This infuriates Priyanka who slowly “wants” Raghu at any cost!
Priyanka comes to know about Raghu love towards Aarthi and she tries everything possible to separate them. Pukazhenthi will go to any extreme to see that his little sister gets Raghu eggs her on and makes life hell for the lovers. Will Raghu get Aarthi in the end? What happen to Priyanka? All this unfolds in the last 30 minutes of the film.
Kedi has shades of various films and the Priyanka character reminds you of Nelambari in Padayappa. The first half of the film is truly entertaining with Ravi Krishna as a boy-next-door which is very similar to what he did in 7-G Rainbow Colony. As Raghu, he has improved leaps and bounds in action and dance sequences but has to work more on his dialogue delivery and shed that boyish accent. Ileana is a major let down as she can’t emote nor does she look good on screen. She has a frail and pale look throughout the film.
The surprise packet of Kedi is Tamanna who steals the show as Priyanka the rich brat. Her body language, mannerisms and screen presence has to be seen, to be believed. She fits the saucy-`n`-sensual bill and has bravely done a role with negative shades with élan and style. Added to that Radio Mirchi fame Suchitra’s dubbing for her is perfect. Yuvan’s songs are just ok with the Adivasi … as the only hummable number and is well picturised with lot of graphics.
