METRO PLUS

A super hit

"KAAKHA KAAKHA" has taken a fantastic opening all over Tamil Nadu. In the opening weekend (Friday to Sunday), the film has grossed an amazing Rs. 3.27 crores from 86 prints, according to producer S. Thanu. Added Thanu: "The film is turning out to be a mega blockbuster and is being appreciated by the masses as well as the elite class."

This will be Surya's first big hit, which has pushed him up the ladder of stardom. His strong performance as ACP Anbuselvan is a revelation and Jyothika as his lover has a sweet and subdued role contrary to the bubbly characters she has done so far. Harris Jayaraj's peppy music is bringing repeat audience to the cinemas and director Gautham Menon needs to be appreciated for making a sensible film with class and style.
