Kanaa Movie Review: Kanaa is a unique tale of a father-daughter relationship which explores the love of cricket in different domains of life.
Did you watch this movie? How much do you feel it was worth?
Most sports movies based on cricket mostly revolve around male characters either fiction or based on a famous personality like Sachin Tendulkar or MS Dhoni. But now we are seeing a girl's aspiration to play cricket in the latest flick Kanaa.
The movie revolves around Koushalya aka Kousi (Aishwarya Rajesh), a young girl based in a small village in Tamilnadu with an aspiration to play cricket for India. This kind of a gene is inherited from her father Murugesan (Sathyaraj) who himself is a die-hard cricket fan who eats, sleeps cricket his entire life. His love for cricket is depicted when his father passes away and he is still engrossed in watching cricket.
Despite the regressive mindset of the village, the father decides to let her daughter fly high with her aspirations to play cricket for India. Kousi's training for cricket begins when she starts learning the sport from boys in the village and observing the bowling tactic of the players while watching the match.
The story of the film is very interesting and something out-of-the-box with good plotlines and the director of the film Arunraja Kamaraj has done a very good job by taking up this subject.
Siva Karthikeyan serves as the producer and also plays the role of a coach in this movie. His extended cameo plays a very important role in helping Kousi getting her mojo while perfecting her bowling skills.
This is by far Aishwarya's best performance till date, the actress has done a very good job in portraying a de-glam role in this one. The best part about her is the body language of a sportsperson in this one. Sathyaraj also plays well in his part as the role of her father.

Kanaa is a crowdpleasing sports movie that also doubles up as a message movie on farmers and their issues. Read full review

Kanaa is a step up in that direction and despite its flaws, it makes for an engaging watch, provided one ignores the highly melodramatic farming angle. Arunraja Kamaraj tries to hit two birds with one stone, and unfortunately, he doesn't quite hit it right. Read full review
