The simple grounds of Keni is intensely intriguing. In a drought struck segment on a Tamil Nadu-Kerala border, there is one good that miraculously has water. In a re-survey conducted by a government, a state limit shifts a bit causing a good to tumble underneath Kerala, though a residence it belongs to comes underneath Tamil Nadu’s jurisdiction. A scuffle for H2O ensues, interjection to a trigger from owners Indira (Jayaprada). An sequence is levied that allows usually Indira to use a H2O from a good within a office that falls underneath a beside state. (personally, it refuses to make sense). As a villages continue to suffer, Indira starts her onslaught to make a H2O permitted to everyone. Further, a story unfurls by 3 reporters who any follow a opposite lead to a same story. The tract and a account device has so most range to furnish a hard-hitting farming drama. But Keni is zero tighten to it. In fact, Keni is an instance of well-meaning, good premises that don’t indispensably interpret to good cinema.
Keni should have radically been a film about a region’s H2O struggle. But what it becomes is a story of a lady who is touted to be a revolutionary. It would still have been excellent had a impression been formally determined as one. What we get is a frail-looking Jayaprada who seems to insist on progressing an careless look. We don’t see a series that each impression seems to be articulate about. Sure, Indira walks adult and down a stairs of a few offices, stands in a queue, gets angry by a few officers. But is that it? Also, is a H2O from one good adequate to agriculturally buoy an whole village? The film could be simply named ‘Indira’ for a luminary standing she is given by her associate characters.
There are several yesteryear stars in Keni who sadly don’t have most to do. Parthepan, Nasser, Rekha, Revathy and Anu Haasan are in roles that they could have sleep-walked through. Also, Keni seems to have a unnoticed clarity of feminism. we conclude that each other impression on shade is a female. But how are we to buy any of these ‘empowering lines’ when they come as an stop to a lady speaking? The essay doesn’t convincingly hang us into a cinematic premise.
To sum up, Keni is a story that has a heart in a right place. However, it is not only about what we contend though also about how we contend it. Not a only good story that asks a few right questions is adequate for good cinema.
