Kapatadhaari follows the story of Gautham (Sumanth,) a traffic police officer who finds skeletal remains under some debris in his jurisdiction. Gautham has dreams of becoming a criminal police detective and his numerous attempts at getting a transfer are rejected by his superiors. Gautham therefore decides to pursue the case of the skeletal remains by himself and finds a web of corruption and deceit which goes all the way to the top of the political ladder. How Gautham manages to maneuver the problems and ultimately gain the promotion of his choice forms the rest of the story.
Sumanth is known to choose meaningful and strong scripts which often tend to be off beat. This formula has worked wonders for Sumanth as he had strong outings with Subrahmanyapuram and Kathanayakudu. Sumanth aces the role of a persistent police officer who fights alone for justice. Director Pradeep Krishnamoorthy is no stranger to making thriller movies and has once again done a great job with Kapatadhaari. The director built a gripping narrative and like any other thriller movie, in Kapatadhaari, the protagonist does not have any allies initially, but as the plot progresses manages to find them in unexpected corners. Krishnamoorthy made sure the script of the Telugu remake is tweaked to suit Sumanth’s style of acting and Sumanth made sure he was never over the top and delivers a mature performance.
Kapathadhaari has some nail biting and edge of the seat moments which were only elevated due to the music director Simon K. King’s gripping background scores. Nasser and Jaya Prakash deliver exceptional supporting performances and so does Nandita Swetha in her limited screen time.
If a nail biting thriller is your cup of team, then we at Telugu Filmnagar would recommend you to watch Kapatadhaari in theaters over the weekend. Let us know if you agree with our review for Kapatadhaari in the comments below.
