KAPPA MOVIE PLOT
Kappa is based on a short novel ‘Shankumukhi’ by GR Indugopan. Since the movie taps in the dark side of Thiruvananthapuram, it is named after Kerela’s Anti-Social Activity Prevention Act (KAPPA).
The movie begins when Anand gets to know from a policeman that his wife’s name has ended up on the KAPPA list mistakenly as it is typically a male name.
This means that she is not just under the radar of the enforcement but also faces danger from a rival gang led by Madhu.
The story engages the viewers with the struggle of the innocent couple caught in gang wars. The plot also revolves around Madhu’s backstory, who gets into the crime world after facing economic hardships as a young boy.
Overall it’s a tale of exploitation, thrill, and power struggle.
