Review: Stuck in a time loop concept is not a new one. The U-Turn fame director Pawan Kumar ensures to get your attention. The theme is presented nicely by him, without repeating. Till the end of the series, the suspense is kept alive.
Aadi (Rahul Vijay) is an aspiring actor but works as a delivery boy. At Khairatabad Police Station, Durga (Amala Paul) is a crime inspector. She is investigating the case of series of child kidnappings happening in the city and tries to save the next victim. With Aadi and Durga finding themselves recalling the single-day incidents over and over again. How the latest case is linked to the time loop and if they manage to find the way out of it forms the crux of the tale.
While the most part of the Kudi Yedamaithe Season 1 manages to keep the audience’s attention. In between, some episodes are dull and repetitive. However, director Pawan manages them well by interlinking all the sub-plots before getting much bored. Aadi’s subplots have good emotional undercurrents. The Durga’s character had more potential. Her subplot confuses in some instances. The climax is a decent one and leaves you with a lot of questions for the next season.
Coming to the performances, Rahul Vijay steals the show. In the repetitive scenes, he manages to bring some uniqueness. His expressions are very good. Amala Paul also acted with perfection. Despite few dialogues, Ravi Prakash acted with ease. The rest of the cast also performed well in their roles. The music composer Poornachandra Tejaswi has done justice. The cinematography and other technical aspects of the series are also good.
Even though some episodes have drawbacks, but the overall Kudi Yedamaithey series explores a unique concept. This series is worth a watch.
