Tharun Bhascker’s Keedaa Cola lands with a thud in the cine-galaxy, promising a kadak (strong) blend of crime and comedy that hits the funny bone just right. We have Vaasthu, portrayed by Chaitanya Rao, who’s grappling with Tourette syndrome and some seriously bad luck. But, as the Tamil saying goes, even a broken clock shows the correct time twice a day, and Vaasthu’s moment comes wrapped in a cola can with an unexpected surprise – a keedaa!
Amidst the chaos, enters the scene-stealer Lancham, played by Rag Mayur, whose lawyerly shenanigans kick the story into high gear. Imagine this – a simple drink purchase snowballs into a courtroom drama that’s as spicy as Andhra chilli chicken!
Brahmanandam, the comedic king, graces the screen as Vaasthu’s thatha, leaving audiences in splits, albeit craving more of his legendary antics. The experience is akin to a bite of your favourite sweet, fleeting yet delightful.
The narrative might test your patience in the beginning, much like awaiting your turn at a bustling street food stall, but patience pays off. The latter half of Keedaa Cola delivers a full-on entertainment feast that’s worth the wait.
Director Tharun Bhascker doubles as a quirky character, proving his versatility and adding an extra layer of masti to the mix. Even with a plot as lean as a dosa, his direction ensures that the movie remains a flavoursome cinematic treat.
The technical craftsmanship of Keedaa Cola is top-notch. Vivek Sagar’s peppy tunes infuse life into the frames captured beautifully by AJ Aaron’s cinematography. The movie, neatly packed into a two-hour joyride, respects the viewer’s time and delivers a satisfying experience.
In conclusion, Keedaa Cola is like a well-spent Sunday – relaxing, full of laughs, and leaving you with a feel-good vibe. This film is a masaledaar outing that offers a jolly good time.
