Unravel the mystery behind the intentions of Diwakar who has lady cop Mallika (Trisha) and Dhiraviyam chasing him, by watching Cheekati Rajyam in theatres.
Kamal Haasan attracts with his performance. He takes viewers to another level. Infront of him everyone looks dwarfs. Kamal showed right kind of expressions and played the role in a natural manner. He showed his feelings for his profession and family in a very right manner.
Trisha performed her role well enacting stunts. Her role could have been written in a even more better manner. Madhu Shalini is confined only to liplocks.
Aman Abdullah attracted as Kamal's son. Prakash Raj matched Kamal's performance and Sampath complimented him well. Others played according to their roles.
Ghibran attracts with his background score. Cinematography of Sanu John Varghese is fine. Editing of Shan Mohammed could have been better as the film drags from start to finish. Rajesh M Selva could have elevated the villainy which inturn would have increased the heroism of Kamal.
He could have thought something different in the second half and many felt he ran out of ideas after the decent first half. Production values are adequate.
Madhu Shalini liplocks
Dragging second half
Thin story line
Director Rajesh stuck to the subject and did not deviate from the main topic. He narrates the story with conviction and with Kamal Haasan's screenplay, he keeps viewers interested for most part of the film.
Only problem with him is the film never picks up pace and looked like a documentary. After sometime viewers get disconnected especially in the second half. Overall Rajesh started off on a promising note.
Cheekati Rajyam is an OK entertainer.
