There are lots of challenges involved over making a biopic. It’s not just about flipping through different articles and testimonies that involves particular personality and then go adapt them for a celluloid version. At times, we have seen even the greatest filmmakers fail in the process and very rarely the genre has worked out. A first timer like Vicky attempting for such a great leap in his maiden debut itself needs a special mention. In this biopic based on the life of social activist Traffic Ramasamy essayed by SA Chandrasekar, how far has the movie reflected and recreated the reality impact?
Let us have a fast sneak into the analysis.
Be it a fictional or real life character, the film clicks well, when the actor breathes into the role that they are essaying. Be it a superstar or a newcomer, it is the most demanding factor. But here, whom we see more dominating is SA Chandrasekar than Traffic Ramasamy. He seems to be completely away from this role except for the costumes and age that might be the only similarity.

In other words, it looks like SAC has taken direction into his hands for his touches can be found in many places. The makers have been pretty clear that this movie will not click in commercial zones. Henceforth, the inclusion of famous star-cast should have been their prominent focus. Nevertheless, they don’t contribute much towards the film’s engagement. Vijay Sethupathi’s morsel like appearance as someone used for the narrative purpose and Vijay Antony appearing for a stunt sequence is refreshing. RK Suresh has given his best performance.
Rohini, Ambika, Livingston, Prakash Raj and many others have done proper justice to their roles. In fact, Vicky deserves a great appreciation for handling such a decorous bunch of actors for his first time.
But then, the film fails to connect with us and it could have been a better version with engaging screenplay, when a film is attempted on a great hero like Traffic Ramasamy.
