There’s always a miss over the game ‘Connecting the dots’, especially when it comes to assumptions. Director Ram threw up heavy baggage of exaggerated frustrations through his debut directorial ‘Kattradhu Tamizha’, where the IT industries were considered as the ‘Hub of Heaven’ that lets the deprived ones to sponged up with incurable pain of envy and aggravations. But over here, Ram proves us wrong of assumptions. Perhaps, what we saw in the trailer of Taramani might have constructed a source of expectations from the film, but it turns to be entirely different climate here.
what we saw in the trailer of Taramani might have constructed a source of expectations from the film, but it turns to be entirely different climate here.
A plot that revolves around a broken down guy (Vasanth Ravi), who got ditched by his girlfriend Sowmya (Anjali) and then there is a divorcee (Andrea Jeremiah), who had to give upon on her marriage when her husband confesses about his gay-hood. She has a kid to be raised and eventually both these contrastive natured people fall in love with each other. But that’s not going to a simple and soon to end beautiful love story. Their lives are turned upside down tested by times.
Relationship becomes stronger when it goes through hurdles and bushes of thorns and furnace. In fact, a beautiful relationship is the one that comes with acceptance and forgiveness. Director Ram has sketched this tale that has complicated lines with a much decorous manner. The treatment of screenplay might be slow paced, but it has its own way of impressing us in many places. It’s hard to narrate a 2hour plus story with just two main characters in focus. The auteur does it very well and neatly ending on a lovely note.
Andrea Jeremiah, Just pulls of a brilliant performance leaving us awestricken in many places
When it comes to performances, the lead actors have pushed their bars giving excellent performances. In spite of being a newcomer, Vasanth Ravi offers an immense involvement living under the skin of his characterisation. No words to praise the performance of Andrea Jeremiah. She just pulls of a brilliant performance leaving us awestricken in many places. Anjali appears in just couple of scenes, but she makes an impressive spell out here.
Yuvan Shankar Raja’s BGM to be precisely mentioned is purely stunning eclipsing his erstwhile accomplishments. Sreekar Prasad gives Midas-touch with his editing, where you don’t sense the transition between the scenes. In spite of being slow paced film, his editing offers a lot of substantial strength to the film. Cinematography by Theni Eeswar is beyond brilliance and one cannot believe is it Chennai or different plan captured.
As on whole, Taramani is an emotionally conveyed tale of two characters that goes through the hassling moments in life. The film touches the reality ground of contemporary urban cities, but laced with a strong message to respect and value relationships.
