Kavan – Movie review

KV Anand and team chooses the media which is TRP driven and who would do anything to come first in the ratings. Tilak( Vijaysethupathy) who is honest journalist waiting for his chance in making big in the television industry. He gets a job in Zen1 news and entertainment channel which wants to be the number one channel. He also meets his ex girlfriend Malar( Maddona Sebastian) who runs the programming team. Initially the channel seems fine but then he comes to see the other side of the channel which manipulates news and shows just to create a sensation and tweak up their ratings. But when the channel head Kalyan ( Akashdeep Saigal) teams up with a corrupt politician and manipulates news on his talk show, Tilak breaks loose and quits his job. He and his friends join a lesser known channel run by Mayilvaganam(TR). How Tilak with the help of his new channel brings down the corrupt politician & zen1 channel is the rest of the story.

Though this content is not new KV Anand and team makes it glorified drama , maybe a bit too much. Halfway through the content just fades away and only the masala bubbles on the top. Vijay Sethupathy keeps you alive but the screenplay is very vague trying to run simultaneous plots. TR was a nice addition, but just adds to the comic side of the film. Madonna Sebastian has one lousy duet song and then becomes a junior artist who stands in the first row throughout the film. Maybe the film could have some new faces in the cast , seriously tired of looking at the same cast in all of the KV Anand’s film. Kavan just gets 4/10
