Kida the movie Was appreciated all over the world.

The story revolves around three characters - a grandfather, his grandson and his pet goat and a butcher. They are forced to take hard decisions to fulfill their dreams by the dawn of Diwali.

The tragedy that his grandfather could not afford to buy a new cloth to his grandson, who are looking for grandfather on the other hand, 

The grandfather, who are desperate to buy a new cloth, stress the different angles of the emotions and the vigor of the consumption of the cultural. Director R. Venkat has spoken out various things from these emotions. This film also screened at international film festivals and won awards.

Chellaya (Poo Ramu) takes care of her grandson after his parents die in an accident.

 Grandson Kathir asks his grandfather who is living in poverty due to his advanced age and is unable to find a proper job to buy clothes for Diwali. Unable to deny his grandson’s wish, 

Chelaiya struggles in many ways to get new clothes even if he borrows them. All struggles fail at some point. In the end, he tries to sell the ‘kida’ which has become an heirloom.

On the other hand, Velikhami (Kalivenkat), who works at a curry shop, is fired for coming to work drunk too often. Opposing this, he challenged him to open a new shop in front of Diwali opposite the shop where he worked, and wandered around looking for a kida for it. By the way, when Velikhami comes to buy Chellaya’s ‘Kida’, Kida is taken aback. Did you get the kita in the end or not? Did you buy clothes for your grandson? Has the challenge of Velikachami been fulfilled? – Screenplay answers many such questions with emotional scenes.

In the story between grandfather and grandson, ‘kida’ (goat) is also a character and conveys feelings through it. The emotional scenes that match the storyline without forcing or squeezing the sadness are strong enough to have the appropriate impact when the scenes are layered like seeing the daily events of the village from close up without causing fatigue at any place.

Similarly, bringing Muslim characters into the story without any pretensions and talking about ‘reconciliation’ is a rare sight in Tamil cinema. It is commendable that even though the female characters are not important in the beginning, the problems caused by the men are kept to be solved by the female characters in the end.

Approached from the lives of common people, this painting invades the festival of Diwali in a heap of emotions. Chellamuthu can celebrate this Diwali if he has 5 thousand rupees. But there is no chance of that. Atakasam is a place that reflects the reality of the celebratory mood created around festivals, the disappointment when it falls apart, and the consumer culture that makes people buy products through excessive advertising.
