Sarvam has two different stories that get mixed up at interval point. First story has Karthik (Arya), a busy architect, falling for Sandhya (Trisha), a doctor. The second story is about Eshwar (J.D. Chakravarthy), who loses his son in an accident. He wants to avenge Naushad (Indrajith Sukumaran), who is the cause for the accident, by killing his son Imaan (Master Rohan).
The first half of the story provides some fun in the form of Arya’s romantic overtures and Trisha’s lovely presence. It also has some mysterious sequences suggesting that something serious is going to happen.
The movie takes a turn when Trisha is dead and her heart is transplanted to the boy. Shattered Arya starts seeing his lover in the form of the boy and he is determined to save the child from Eashwar, who wants to avenge his son’s death. The rest of the story deals with how he saves the child.
The love episode in the first half provides some fun but it is in no way different from the routine. Trisha’s sudden death too is clichéd one. The director makes her die to give the movie a thrilling twist.
The second part of the movie is set in Munnar. The cold, dark, wild forests of Munnar provide perfect backdrop for a thriller but the director has failed to come out with a convincing script. The way Easwar chases the child and the way Arya manages to save the child are poorly conceived. Vishnu has taken too much liberty in Arya’s escape from the clutches of death.
Arya is competent but he needs to develop his skills when it comes to emoting. Trisha looks beautiful and carries her role with grace. Anu Vardhan needs to be complemented for the fabulous costumes of Trisha.
J.D. Chakravarthy impresses with his emotional outbursts but his character leaves much to be desired. Indrajith doesn’t get much to do. Master Rohan as Imaan does his job well.
Arya seeing his lover in the form of the boy is okay but telling the boy that he survives because of his lover’s heart sounds silly.
Yuvan Shankar Raja has rendered some good tunes and his background score provides the much needed thrilling effect. Nirav Shah’s cinematography is excellent.
Sarvam looks stylish and spectacular. But the movie is neither interesting nor convincing.
