Kidu movie review: New age Malayalam gangsters in the name of innocence
Written by Shubham Dwivedi

This film could have been a riveting tale of young kids going into crime but instead it became unrealistic and flamboyant. Crux of the story is actually seeped in the reality of poor India and how Kids are influenced to do certain activities which they should not be. Gun culture is not as prevalent in India as USA but getting one is also not that hard. These school going kids get into matters that are beyond their control but also having too much trouble is what raises a person strong to face the world later.

Enough arguments have been made by people about how bullying is necessary and why kids should face some of it in the childhood but the ones that become bullies are trouble for the society. A child criminal is way more dangerous then an adult because he is not even realizing the depth of his act which means he will stop at nothing. This story totally goes around the beat up old ideologies being used in cinema for decades to show how someone with a normal mindset transforms into a sociopath and how the societal construct helps in it to make a rather fruitful adventure of a compromising story.

Performances in this one are quite authenticated to the scenes but they were simply asked to dictate the unrealistic scenes on screen. Story was gripping but screenplay had a few dips in it which would eventually kill the pace of narrative. Few encounters have been made into the fact that sweeping facts reading along with the foolishness of narrative are more self contradictory than anything else. To take either sides is not the point of a story but an artist should be opinionated and not be scared at all to put their point across. Overall, no one should bother as much for this piece of cinema.
