Nna Thaan Case Kodu Movie Review : An interesting social satire

Story: A former thief takes on a PWD minister over a pothole which leads to a dog bite and causes him to be accused as a thief again

Review: Petty thief Rajeevan (Kunchacko Boban) meets Devi, a Tamil labourer, and falls for her. They decide to live together at her house and he completely stops his illegal activities and starts working as a laborer. One day, on his way back from a temple festival, to avoid being hit by an auto, he jumps over the boundary wall of an MLAs house and gets bitten by the MLA’s pet dog. To top it off, he is accused of theft and arrested.

In court, Rajeevan ends up arguing his case by himself and promises to produce evidence. Thereafter the court proceedings start and Rajeevan accuses the PWD minister of dragging him into the situation, with the one pothole on the road being the main reason behind all the events. Will he be able to prove himself innocent?

After his Kanakam Kamini Kalaham and Android Kunjappan, director Ratheesh Balakrishnan Pothuval makes a wonderful socio-political satire that the common man can identify with. The pathetic conditions of the roads of our state and how the courts pass judgments, the corrupt the political system where the ministers try to pass off blame to the contractors, while they are forced to use substandard materials because they are forced to give huge bribes and money to party funds are things we know, but still make us think.

Kunchacko Boban’s Devadoodar Padi dance has already been a viral hit and he does a fantastic job as Rajeevan. The magistrate (PP Kunhikrishnan) is wonderful, bringing a whole range of emotions as judge.

The first half of the movie is filled with quirky, fun-filled dialogues, and investigations too. The second half is completely focused on the courtroom and the arguments, where it shows how time passes away once you are trapped in a court case. A special mention for Rajesh Madhavan for his hilarious performance as auto driver Sureshan.

The movie is definitely worth a one-time watch.
