The absurd hunt results in a more serious crime against women, forcing the cop to adjust to the local political power struggle and safeguard the future of a young girl.


Review: 
The name "Kathal" is unique for a Hindi movie. The project's subject topic and mix of producers, Balaji Films and Sikhya Entertainment, are both rare. Speaking about Chalk and Cheese However, this unusual film, which successfully pulls off humor and satire surrounding routine corruption and local politicians' use of the police force, succeeds in entertaining without being prescriptive.


It's difficult to ignore how similar the main narrative is to "Dahaad." Several missing girls are discovered by an effective female police officer in the semi-rural Hindi heartland (a fictional location in Bundelkhand, Uttar Pradesh).
Only “Kathal” turns this subject on its head by building a comedy that at once frustrates you and makes you laugh. In a semi-tribute to Emir Kusturica’s school of filmmaking, here, both cops and criminals are goofy; and the politician controlling the police force is unintentionally funny.

“Kathal” is about a young police officer Mahima Basor (Sanya Malhotra) who is dedicated to hunting down criminals in a place where crime is almost normalised and the police exist to fill an official space. A constable in her team is obsessed with finding his stolen car, essential to marrying his daughter off. Her bosses are prone to making errors while holding press briefings and when the local MLA Munnalal Pateria (Vijay Raaz) summons, they toe the line without batting an eyelid. The hunt is for two hybrid jackfruits, which need to be pickled for some serious political horse trading. Now these have gone missing. Bewildered by the absurdity of this new case, yet unable to question her bosses, Malhotra’s efforts to hunt for the jackfruit along with her half-interested squad leads to a bigger crime- a young girl, the daughter of a poor gardener, has gone missing.

Her lower stature in this caste-driven society meant that her boyfriend Saurabh, a not-so-efficient constable (Anant Joshi) didn’t pay sufficient attention to this case. Finding an opportunity where there is little room to negotiate, she uses the ‘high-profile’ jackfruit theft to investigate the missing girl, only to discover that many such missing persons cases have never been checked upon. Using her wits, she involves the local media man (Rajpal Yadav) and her team to hunt down the missing girl. This search leads to multiple comedies of error, with a hilarious climax where a literal downpour of weaponized vegetables and fruit wreaks havoc on Mahima and her team. Eventually, she comes out on top.

Yashowardhan Mishra uses humor and everyday scenarios to address caste stereotypes, inherent gender bias, gender-based discrimination, and the normalization of petty corruption. The narrative moves along without ever seeming particularly serious or upsetting. However, it raises a pertinent question: how are we actually using our overworked police force? In addition, the writing succeeds thanks to the inclusion of authenticity and regional flavor in the story. As Mahima, Sanya Malhotra succeeds because to her flawless accent and naturalistic performance. The cast elevates the comedy in this story by supporting it with repartee and conversational exchanges. After a while, Rajpal Yadav appears in a movie where he gets something valuable in addition to making you laugh. Gurpal Singh, Vijay Raaz, Anant Joshi, and Neha Saraf are all actors in the cast. and Govind Pandey - pulling their weight, “Kathal” delivers a breezy ensemble comedy about real issues plaguing India’s society.

Simple stories make for the best viewing sometimes. “Kathal” is one such story that makes for an entertaining, light-hearted weekend watch.
