Saivam – Movie review

30 Jun


The film is mainly concentrated on three characters Kathiresan (Naseer ) and his Granddaughter Tamizh(Sara ) and her pet Rooster Pappa . Kathiresan is expecting his sons and daughter along with their family for the village festival. Kathiresan is overjoyed at having his entire family of three sons and a daughter under one roof, but that joy doesn’t last as unfortunate events occur in the family. When the family finds out that a Nerthikadan (promise of an offering to God in return for a favour), which was giving the “Pappa” the Rooster as an offering to their God was long overdue. But things get even worse as the Rooster goes missing. How the family recuperates after this is the rest of the story.

A clean, fun filled melodrama given by Vijay and his team. Vijay has managed to choose the best of the cast for this film, the boy Shravan (Ray paul) , George and Malathi the house servants where too good. Naseer and Sara lived like the character for the film. Songs and background score where presented. Selva ‘s art direction blended to the story and essence of Karaikudi was not lost in any frame.Clean dialogues and light hearted family moments makes this simple story and good movie.The only miss was the duration of the film but being a family drama maybe it needed the extra length. A big round of applause for the whole team to have given a complete family film. I give the film 7/10
