Aramm Review by Naveen

Reality show


– Review

A lot has been written about ‘Aramm’ in the media, courtesy the Nayanthara factor. Director Gopi Nainar and other members of the team claimed that the film would convey a strong message.
Yes, the film has delivered what it promised, as it deals with dark and stark realities of the system and how partiality is shown towards particular sections of people.
The story revolves around Madhivadhani (Nayanthara), a district collector for whom serving the people is the top priority. Bold in brain and tender at heart, the young IAS officer listens to the woes of the public and tries finding solutions.
In a village in her jurisdiction, lives a family led by the breadwinner  Yugendran (Rams), a painter, whose earnings are not sufficient to make ends meet. Like the other women in the village, his wife Sumathi (Sunu Lakshmi) also does odd jobs.
The couple have a son, Muthu (Ramesh of Kaaka Muttai fame) and a daughter Dhanshika (Mahalakshmi). Muthu wants to become a swimming champ, but his father is against it, as he wants the boy to study well to land in a good job.
It is told that Yugendran, during his youth days, dreamed of becoming a kabaddi player, but in vain, resulting in him getting a strong feeling that the system is against them.
On a ill-fated day, Dhanshika falls into a deep borewell, and her rescue becomes a huge professional and personal challenge for Madhivadhani, with the whole incident becoming a media blitz.
Nayanthara deserves a load of bouquets for her performance in the film, as she appears to us only as Madhivadhani, the collector. Ramachandran Durairaj, Sunu Lakshmi, Ramesh, Vignesh, Vela Ramamurthy and others have delivered equally good performance.
Om Prakash’s camera angles are brilliant, while Ghibran’s music adds to the emotions. Peter Hein shines with his excellent choreography of rescue scenes.
The director’s concern for the society and his anger on system have been brought out well. Despite the film giving a documentary feel in its 120 minutes run-time, it is a rare movie and will remain one of the meaningful movies of 2017.

Rating: 4 out of 5
