@TheVishnuVishal role is same like #VikramPrabhu in #Kumki no changes and one more uncle character same like Thambi Ramiah and he enters now the forest with #Kumki so its clear he will fall in love with that tribal girl turned naxal Zoya. Predictable plot #Kaadan #KaadanReview— KaulTheKing (@kaultheking) March 26, 2021

However, the audience and the critics unanimously agree that Rana's performance in Kaadan is really good and done should watch the movie to see him play the role with a lot of honesty on screen.
Kaadan has received a rating of 9.1 stars on IMDb denoting the audience are loving the movie and feel that it is a must-watch.
