Vijay Antony is haunted with a recurring dream of a small child and his mother running, a cow and a snake trying to hurt the kind. Besides pondering over the dream in silent, he is a really successful doctor in USA. He runs his own hospital and is the best cardiologist in the city.
Vijay Antony's life takes a complete u-turn when he finds out that he is an adopted child, and he was born in a remote village in India. After processing the information he begins to believe that his dreams are connected to the life he once had. So, he leaves to India to find his original parents with whatever little information he had about them.
He finds out that his mother had already died upon initial stages of enquiry. Vijay Antony then shifts his focus to track down his father or his legacy. He sets up a free medical camp and begins to collect few blood samples to crosscheck their DNA. He comes across a few matching genes, and interrogate them. What is Vijay Antony's identity and he find out his parents form the rest crux of the story.
Vijay Antony plays four different characters with each one having its unique characteristics. He is evolving as an actor. And comparing him to his other works, he has done a good job at acting in this film. The film has four heroines; Anjali, Sunainna, Amritha Aiyer and Shilpa Manjunath all have done justice in playing their parts neatly. Yogi Babu's character adds humour to the film, which works in parts. Other supporting actors such as Nasser, RK Suresh and Jayaprakesh has performed well.
Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi has done a pretty decent job in the directorial department even though many loose ends are evident. Overall, the wafer-thin story and loose screenplay makes up into a breezy fantasy movies. She however should work more on casting and scripting one-liner humour sequence.
Also, Vijay Antony has handled the music department. Compared to the songs, he has scored his way with nailing the BGM, as it is in sync with the movie's genre. Richard M Nathan's cinematography skills come to fore and he has shot well.
In short, Kaali, is an average commercial film.
