Dada Movie Review:
Combining intense emotions and humour in the perfect amounts can be one of the most challenging things if done incorrectly. There is, however, no greater instrument to keep the audience interested throughout a film when a director is successful in doing so. One such movie with the appropriate emotions is Kavin’s Dada. With some lighter moments, it shows the struggles Manikandan (Kavin) encounters in attempting to build a nice life for himself and his child.
Final-year college students Manikandan (Kavin) and Sindhu (Aparna Das) are madly in love with one another. Mani suddenly falls pregnant with Sindhu and has a little child.
The two decide to live together in their friend’s house, but Mani’s careless actions and sluggish attitude throughout Sindhu’s pregnant phase cause them to disagree. Manikandan is now forced, in spite of his financial situation, to raise his newborn child alone.
What comes next is a touching story about a father and son’s journey despite all the obstacles.
The script of director Ganesh K. Babu is potent enough to draw the spectator into the world of Manikandan, a single father who enters that era of redemption.
One of the film’s greatest qualities is the fact that the protagonist in this story has certain flaws. Every time reality knocks him hard, he gets back up, which makes us want him to succeed. They claim humour may assist lessen a drama’s severity, and Ganesh K Babu has done this in Dada.
Every time following a sad passage, lighter moments and absurd conversation are interspersed, and they work really well. In the second half, Pradeep Antony’s character gives the audience a fantastic journey. After the interval, there aren’t as many problems, and the plot becomes rather predictable, but the presence of a few characters, such Pradeep Antony and VTV Ganesh, keeps us interested.
The audience could identify to a lot of the scenes between the father and kid since they are well-written. The story gains a lot from Kavin’s on-screen presence and the way he plays the part throughout. For instance, when we first meet him, we learn that he doesn’t let any circumstance in his life impact him or make him weep. However, when we notice tears in his eyes at one point, they are incredibly real and don’t appear phoney.
Even though Aparna Das cries most of the time, she does an excellent job. They have great chemistry together, which is one of the things that made us fall in love with this movie. The film’s technical elements—cinematography and music—are both excellent. The background music by Jen Martin heightens feelings immediately.
Dada might have easily been a Tamil adaptation of Pursuit of Happiness if it had simply concentrated on Manikandan’s work and struggles while trying to raise his daughter Adhithya. However, it does show off his love life once again after the break, offering us another perspective.
Dada is an excellently written drama with just the perfect amount of humour, feeling, and love. This weekend, be on the lookout for it.
