Ram is too overwhelmed by the number of abducted children when each of them beg him to take them away from this place. Ram becomes hysterical when he finds Gautham's shirt on the floor along with his scribblings on the wall. Poonam Kaur has only to shed tears. While it was the uncle in the latter, here, it is the father, who goes on a countrywide search, looking for his son. Aided by a sympathetic car driver Rangan Munnar Ramesh , Ram tracks the boy to a kidnapping cartel and his search takes him all over the country and drives him to the depths of despair.
As his distraught wife, Poonam Kaur fares no better. You step into a police station and a lowlife winks at your wife. There is some action too, a relief from the melodrama, but that oo is limited to a scene or two. Back in Andhra Pradesh, Ram and Rangan meet the businessman, Nallama Reddy who claims to lead an honest living by selling rice. Beyond a point film gets too dramatic and everybody is shouting or crying! However, after much pestering, the local inspector has one of his men take Ram and Lizzy to the slums in north Chennai to meet a petty criminal, Nayanar, who knows about all the crimes done by the dwellers in his area.
It is also a film which shows that some thought has gone into the making of the film. Let us see whether it satisfies the audience in this review. She asks him to come home as there is nothing they can do to find their son now. But while all this looks great on paper, something goes amiss in the translation to screen — the big reveal is weakened with an overdose of sentimentality and dialogue a general problem with the film. Dhorai sidelines the wife after the initial scenes, and it would have made greater impact if a little bit of her feelings had been shown, especially since it was her distraction that led to Gautham going missing. In Lucknow, Ram is found sleeping at the roadside by a kind Muslim, Bhai, who takes him in and helps him find Gautham. As they explore the place, they discover that Gautham and many other abducted children have been kept prisoned there all along.
He then pleads to Ram to not give up and continue searching for his son. On his sixth birthday, the boy goes missing, and Ram goes on a seemingly futile search to get him back. Through one of his contacts, Bhai learns about a local crime boss who houses dozens of child labourers. Now Jayam Ravi has released the first look teaser on his Twitter page. The teaser apart from going viral has also elevated the expectation level of the film. For another look, Shaam reduced his weight from 89 kg to 72 kg and grew long hair and beard. He has made a strong come back to Tamil Cinema with Performance Oriented role.
Early reports suggested that would play a role, but she was replaced by Poonam Kaur. This article may not be reproduced in its entirety without permission. You step into a police station and a lowlife winks at your wife. An edited version of this piece can be found. The Tamil censors, who are so conscientious about muting swear words, seem to be unfamiliar with colourful endearments from the North and the East, especially one that refers to doing unsisterly things with a sister.
Director Durai is one of the under-rated directors in Tamil Cinema. The driver reluctantly agrees to take Ram there. Yes, people can be contradictory, but if we are to buy Ram doing what he does — follow slender leads, go from one city to another with little money in hand, track down dangerous criminals and overpower them — then he needed to be like the Neeson character, a tough customer. Initially, he pretends to not know anything. As the father named Ram , Shaam undergoes dramatic changes in his appearance, but he just cannot sustain the numerous actor-showcase moments, the drawn-out emotional scenes that the director keeps thrusting upon him. As he comes to accept the fact that Gautham is not in the city, he phones Lizzy who he has not spoken to in months. On the boy's sixth birthday, they take him out to the beach where he goes missing.
The Tamil censors, who are so conscientious about muting swear words, seem to be unfamiliar with colourful endearments from the North and the East, especially one that refers to doing unsisterly things with a sister. Durai made his debut as a lyricist and wrote all the 6 songs. Before dying, Rangan reveals to Ram that he was the driver hired to drive Gautham's abductors around Chennai in search of victims. After many postponements, this film was released on 20 September 2013. There are also instances when you see a spark of brilliance in the film, especially in scenes where Shaam tries to become Sherlock Holmes.
And at the end, we realise why, exactly, he offered to help. Will there be redemption in the end? However it is a gloomy film that shows the underside of child kidnapping trade. Prakash are handling the camera. Jayam Ravi releases Yemaali movie teaser: After 6 Melugu Vathigal, V. When Ranga agrees to accompany Ram, initially, it seems slightly implausible as you wonder why a driver should abandon his work and family to help an almost stranger for a simple act of kindness.
He has worked extremely hard and there's absolutely no doubt about it, but he takes audiences for granted, and thus earns their wrath. You are taken to someone who can possibly offer a clue, and that someone lives in a slum, a lame beggar whose bowl of curd rice is swarming with flies. But the glut of tongues does result in some unintentional good. Ram holds Reddy's grandson at gunpoint and forces Reddy to reveal where Gautham is. You have it in you to kill another man.
