Kalavani 2 movie review
Vemal and Oviyaa in Kalavani 2.PR Handout

Nine years after hit movie, Kalavani, director A Sarkunam is an upcoming up with its sequel with more or less the same cast. Vimal and Oviyaa, who has now become a popular name among Kollywood audience all because of her stint in Bigg Boss Tamil show, are starring in the flick.

Saranya Ponvannan, RJ Vigneshkanth, Ilavarasu, Vinodhini Vaidyanathan and others are part of the supporting cast. The film has SS Kumaran's music, Masani's cinematography and Raja Mohammad's editing.

The first film was a romantic comedy, while the sequel is about local politics. Arikki aka Arivazhagan (Vimal) aspires to become a politician and decides to contest the local body elections. The challenges that he face will be narrated with a lot of humour.

The success of the first instalment has made the fans keep high hopes on Kalavani 2. The trailer and the songs have managed to evoke positive response from the viewers.

Troubles with Release
The movie was hit by financial issues which delayed the film's release. In fact, it is solved only at the last minute. The director and the hero had brought loans separately to complete the film, as he failed to pay the amount on time, the money lenders sought the court's intervention.

Check out the viewers' comments to the film below:

Rajasekar: #Kalavani2 first half - Sarkunam has retained the nativity factor from the first part, not an exact continuation from the original. Film has its moments here and there. Decent so far.

CineTent: #Kalavani2 - Entertaining.. If you know the culture of Thanjavur District surely you will love it... Not the bad attempt...

Review Ram: #Kalavani2 (Tamil) - Interval - A sequel with 50% continuity to the first part. Disconnect prevails with the artificial makeup of @ActorVemal and @OviyaaSweetz.

Mostly boring with flat comedy sequences. Certain rom-com portions are cheap too.

'Below Par' so far.
