Mallika lives with her parents, Karuppasamy and Valliammal, in Dharmapuri. They are abused by their landlords are living in poverty. Arjunan enters their lives. He gives them enough hope that their lives will change one day and they will live happily. Mallika finds that Arjunan has a lot of money. She decides to kill Arjunan and plans to take over all his money. She forces her parents to accept her decision. What happened to Arjunan? Was he saved? The rest of the film deals with this.
Varalaxmi excelled in the given role. Charle, Easwari, and Santosh Prathap fit well in their roles and are impressive with their performances. Kavitha Bharathi and Sendrayan add value to their roles, though their screen presence is short.
Dayal Padmanabhan makes his debut in Tamil after a dozen plus successful films in Kannada. The screenplay is neat, and the characters are penned finely. The stars fit well in the role; their natural performance makes the audience feel for them and helps them go deep into the story. Though the film has less running time, the director accomplished his goal within a short time. The BGM by Sam CS is stunning, as usual, and the visuals are impressive too. The art director and his team should be appreciated for bringing the 80s era in front. There are no commercial elements inserted, and that’s one of the biggest pluses.
What’s Not There?
This film would be a great treat for people who love performance-oriented films without commercial elements!
