Vijay Milton’s Kadugu clearly conveys that filmmaking is not about grand sets, big names and mammoth budget. All a director should do is to sketch realistic characters, situations and establish a strong emotional connect with the audiences.
The film begins with the righteous yet innocent Puli Vesham artist Puli Pandi (Rajakumaran), who feels happy when he helps people around him. He is a born do-gooder and doesn’t expect anybody to reciprocate to his goodness. In one of his Puli Vesham programs, a problem breaks out during which he befriends the area inspector (Venkatesh) and helps him in day-to-day errands. As the inspector gets transferred to a small coastal town Tharangambadi, Puli also accompanies him.
Kadugu’s biggest strength is solid characterizations; especially the not so good looking Rajakumaran is beautifully portrayed as a guy with inherent goodness in him. Bharat as the guy with shades of grey is well etched by the director. The other two interesting characters are Radhika Prasidhha, the teacher who faced similar appalling incident as the little girl in her childhood and Bharath Seeni, who struggles to convey his love and gives her space to the girl.
