The plot of “King Of Kotha” centers on efforts to restore justice to the streets of the city of Kotha, which is rife with criminal activity. CI Prasanna plays the role of Shahul Haasan, who is in authority of this lawless town. He must endure humiliation at the hands of Shabeer Kallarakkal’s merciless criminal Kannan, though.

Shahul learns of the presence of an exiled mobster named Kotha Rajendran “Raju,” played by Dulquer Salmaan while pursuing dominance over the drug mafia. Shahul carefully plans Raju’s return to Kotha because he senses a chance for vengeance. This action sets off a series of events that lead to a thrilling fight between Raju and Kannan. The dynamics of power, retaliation, and the complexity of the criminal underworld are all explored in the film.


King of Kotha is one such movie that has all the necessary components to be mass entertainment during this Onam season if movies are supposed to be enjoyed by the masses. The action film is produced by Wayfarer Films, which Dulquer Salmaan owns, and is directed by Abhilash Joshiy.

The town of Kotha is depicted in three separate eras when it was dominated by gangsters: 1986, 1996, and 1998. The movie focuses on Raju (Dulquer Salmaan), his friends, family, and adversaries.

Raju’s life before 1986, his encounter with his opponent Ranjith (Chemban Vinod Jose), who is from a different hamlet called Gandhigram, and how he came to govern Kotha are all covered in the foremost portion of the film.

In the second half, when Raju returns to Kotha as Raju Madrasi, he copes with the police as well as his childhood buddy Kannan, also known as Kannan Bhai, and Manju, the latter’s wife. Watching Shabeer Kallarakkal as Kannan and Aishwarya Lekshmi as Thara is charming and enjoyable to watch.

The mother of Kannan, Kaalikutty, played by Sajitha Madathil, has an impact. Everyone in the theater is moved by her final scene. Shammi Thilakan, who plays Raju’s father, shines in every scene, while Shanti Krishna and Anikha Surendran each have respectable roles as Raju’s mother and sister, respectively.

Jake Bejoy’s instrumental score is crucial in elevating the movie. The imaginary village of Kotha is artistically shown in Nimish Ravi’s cinematography.

Rating: 3.7/5

Dulquer Salmaan is the leading actor in the entire show. Characters come to life because of the multifaceted actor’s effortless performance. The entertainer excels in the action sets as well. The rating for the film is 3.7 stars out of 5 stars.

To a certain extent, none of the characters are memorable, except Dulquer. There was a lot of work put into making the movie, but the writing needed more attention.
