After the National-award winning show in Thenmeruukku Paruvakattru, director Seenu Ramaamy is back with a movie that again speaks about the value of human relationship. Far from the mad crowd of commercial cliches, Neerparavai voices for the plight of innocent fishermen, killed in territorial water dispute.
The movie speaks about politics in mid-sea and innocent lives of fishermen in the backdrop of romance between a couple, who are brought up in the shores.
Seenu Ramasamy has worked on minute details and Jeyamohan's dialogues forms the backbone. Equally impressive is Balasubramaniam's cinematography which captures the beauty of the sea shore in all glory. Rahunanthan's background score is apt for the theme.
The movie begins with Esther (Nadhita Das) arrested after she confesses of killing her husband Arulappasamy (Vishnu). In the flashback, young Esther (Sunaina) an orphan meets Arulappa Samy, son of (Saranya and Ramu), a drunkard. Love blossoms between them and he reforms. The couple gets married and the politics of territorial water plays spoilsport in their lives.
Vishnu is splendid. A perfect fit for the role. He utilises the chance well to leave his mark. Sunaina plays a de-glamourised role. Nandhitha Das, Saranya, Samuthirakani and Thambi Ramiah are also in the cast.
Producer Udhayanidhi Stalin deserves a pat for gathering guts to produce such a film. Three cheers Seenu Ramasamy. He has proved his class yet again.
