Who said a Tamil film should be always hero-centric and the male protagonist should run around fisting his muscles fighting goons. In the recent past, many a films that are story-driven are being made in Tamil cinema. A few of them have even made it big.
The recent trend has brought joy and confidence in the industry. Joining the list of new wave of cinema is Arohanam. Actress-turned-filmmaker Lakshmi Ramakrishnan has ventured to do a film with loads of message, need for love and care for woman in the family.
The movie stars Jayaprakash, Viji Chandrasekhar, Uma Padmanabhan and Rajee Vijayasarathy among others. The film revolves around a missing mother.
Nirmala (Viji Chandrasekhar) is a caring mother for her two children. She even sells vegetables to get give them a decent life.
Nirmala is a pot of emotions that incurs the wrath of everyone around her. She goes missing one night and the children begin their search for her. The movie ends with a strong message.
Viji Chandrasekhar, sister of actress Saritha is the cynosure of the story. She hogs all limelight playing the role with utmost conviction.
She has given her best performance. Sampathraj, Jayaprakash, Kavithalaya Krishnan and Uma Padmanabhan add strength to the film. Cinematography by Shanmugarajana and K's catchy background score deserve a mention.
Lakshmi Ramakrishnan deserves all appreciation for this 90-minute film is one of many to cpome from her kitty.
