Othatha Seruppu size 7 is produced, conceived and acted by one and only Parthiban. The story starts with the interrogation of Masilamani ( Parthiban) who is brought in as a suspect of a brutal murder of a business man. As the interrogation starts, Masilamani shows unusual behaviour which diverts the cops to different conclusions , but as Masilamani confesses not to one but more murders , the cops understand Masilamani is not a common man but a man with a serious motive.
What makes this movie unique is the way Parthiban conceived this movie showing only one character in the frame till the end. All others characters register only thru voice , but the way Parthiban has conceived each other character and the way it has been interpreted to the story makes it seam less and we barely miss them as actors. Cinematographer Ramji plays a unique role in framing each shot which gives Parthiban as an actor to perform and as a director to conceive the story. Parthiban provides twists in exact places were the story gets slow, and keeps the momentum high till the end.music and BGM keeps us engaged till the end. Though I was very skeptical in seeing the film , based on his previous experimental attempts . this proved the best of his films. A must watch, I give it 9/10
