Kathal Movie (2023) Review, Cast, Trailer: It’s no spoiler to reveal that the jackfruits are a MacGuffin. As Mahima investigates the case, a larger, far more pressing crime bursts into view. The film, at this point, acquires a serio-comic tone it will sustain for the rest of its span. The humour flows from Rajpav Yadav’s (playing a local journalist) partially bald crown; it resembles, at times, the Japanese chonmage without the knot.
But the visual quirkiness does not paper over the many cross-currents of gender and caste. Mahima’s life is no different from Sonakshi Sinha’s in Dahaad; a backward caste woman who’s risen up the ranks, yet is subject to the same sexism and muted prejudice that’s the lay of the land. The dialogues are brilliant.
Every actor leaves an outstanding mark in the frame. Sanya Malhotra as a smart , empathetic lady Police officer, Rajpal Yadav as a shrewd yet honest media person,Neha Saraf as a dedicated constable who has given up ambition to trade for a happy family Life. Even the actors with only appearances like the judge, gardner leave impression about their real life problems.
