Nayanthara as the middle-class girl Kokila looks demure and conveys expressions in a subtle manner. Her transformation from an innocent, poor girl to a drug peddler and a gun-wielding action girl due to circumstances have been effectively conveyed with her intense performance, and she excels in emotional sequences with her power-packed act.
Yogi Babu is a treat to watch as he casually generates genuine laughs with his body language and simple antics as well as one-liners. Saranya Ponvannan is the usual mother, and is a cakewalk for her, while the rest of the cast including RS Shivaji, Vinoth and Jacqueline are adequate.
Kolamaavu Kokila makes a tightrope walk for most parts, balancing the darkness and humour very well, and the director proves his mastery in lacing fun and comic situations even in an intense flick, and he has successfully extracted the best performance from Nayanthara, the best fun track from Yogi Babu who gets a prominent, full-fledged role, and the best score from Anirudh, all elevating Kolamaavu Kokila to the level of a biggie.
The first half moves at a brisk pace establishing the characters, and from the pre-interval block, and the interval bang, the movie catches fire, and the second half moves at jet speed, entertaining, and keeping the audience engaged at the edge of seats with action and humor beautifully balanced. With Nayanthara on top form, Kolamaavu Kokila is a gripping entertainer, that establishes the talent of Nayanthara to choose the right scripts.
Priyamani has 'Money Troubles' The national award winning actress Priyamani, who had shot to fame with her award-winning act in the Tamil flick Paruthi Veeran, and had also starred in films of top directors like Maniratnam, Bharathiraja, and Balu Mahendra, had set out on a glam attack in Telugu, and performance oriented roles in Malayalam.
