" Paadam" is the social message oriented film scripted and directed by Rajashekar. The film is produced by Gibin under the banner Roll On Films. Paadam has the star cast of Karthik, Mona and Vijith in the lead roles. Yaashika Aanand plays an important role in Paadam. Ganesh Raghavendra is the music composer.


Language is the main concept in the film. Many students are weak in English and they feel inferior as they lack knowledge in the language. Along with this, various concepts relating to the education system are mixed in this film to give a final message. Watch the film on the big screen to know its complete concept.

Star Performance

The debutant stars have played well. The songs and the BGM are not up to the mark.


The director has tried to bring out the film with a social message. But, some incidents including the teacher – correspondent son love seem to be boring, as we have heard a lot about it in the recent days. However, the director had tried his best to bring a good message to the society.

What’s There?

  • Performance of the debutants is good
  • Bringing a subject with a social message is appreciable

What’s Not There?

  • No strong script
  • Songs are forcibly inserted
  • Certain scenes seem to have been a repeat of some old films and the recent happenings


Paadam team had tried out a similar genre like that of Saattai featuring Samuthirakani. But, there should be a strong script and screenplay to make films like Saattai. If Rajashekar had concentrated more in the script and screenplay, this film could have been appreciated.
