In the current times, comedy is the most preferred genre that guarantees good business and assured patronage and when you top this up with neat presentation and decent performances, the product is bound to hit the right notes with the audience. Pandiraj’s Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga falls in this category.

Director Pandiraj is known for his clean levity and he also packages his content with a positive message, without much sermonizing. This works well for his films and the audience. KBKR is about the story of two friends without much focus in life and what happens to them in the course of their life.

The biggest strength of KBKR is its family friendly nature. Entertaining presentation, clean comedy, fitting dialogues and decent performance mark KBKR. At a time when there is abundance of stress in everyone’s lives, a hundred and fifty minutes of clean fun at the theatre is the most sought after and KBKR renders this with ease.

Pandiraj’s dialogues sparkle with sharp wit that gives the film a positive edge. Moolayai vida saalvaiya madhikkaraan daa, Liftunnu kettaa Swiftukku wait panna koodadhu, Olai mattaila onnukku adicha maadiri are a few examples. The laughs keep coming at regular intervals.

To an audience who is used to seeing women getting slapped at and beaten up, it is a welcome change to see the hero getting bashed up and that too by the heroine. Quite a novel factor indeed! And there is a justification for this by the affected individual in a Bacchanalian bash by the men folk. Hilarious! And Pandiraj continues this streak of siding the women when Siva Karthikeyan bullied by women utters “hey, neenga ellam annan thambiyoda perakkaliya?” And Pandiraj’s women characters in KBKR are much stronger than his men in a very nonchalant manner and they call the shots right through very effectively.

The romance that blooms between Siva Karthikeyan and Regina isquite enjoyable. It is indeed different to see heroes imagining about their death procession. The election results scenes in the second half are extremely well done and bring the roof down.

Siva Karthikeyan plays to his strengths and is quite entertaining with the apt comic timing in dialogue delivery. Vemal is in his comfort zone and pulls it off convincingly. Regina Cassandra is the find of the season and scores big time. With a relatable and a very non-filmiface, the girl delivers a spontaneous performance. Suri is his natural self and plays it straight without resorting to histrionics. When he says ‘scenela twistaam’ at Bindu Madhavi’s house on Delhi Ganesh’s change of mood, it sounds epic. The friend who is always seen with them is notice worthy. The supporting cast of Delhi Ganesh, Muthuraman, Sujatha and others are apt.

Technically the film is adept with camera work and editing,sticking to the dictates of the script. Yuvan’s RR is pleasant in a few places and the songs gel with the mood of the film not impeding the flow.

Although in the first half, the gags keep coming, sometimes you wonder where the director is going to take us. However the second half is done better with father sentiment and a message and Pandiraj ends his film on a purpose-ridden positivity.

Comedy is a fail-safe formula and when done well, there are no two opinions about the result and Kedi Killa Killadi Ranga is the best testimony to that.

Verdict: Enjoyable family ride for the summer
