Oru Kidayin Karunai Manu - A Simple Yet Sweet Petition


Suresh Sangaiah’s Oru Kidayin Karunai Manu (A Goat’s Mercy Petition) will hit theatres on June 2. Produced by Eros International, the Tamil-language film is about village politics from a goat’s point of view. Starring Vidharth and dubbing artist Raveena in the lead roles, Oru Kidayin Karunai Manu was premiered at the New York Indian Film Festival on May 6.
The movie marks the debut of Sangaiah, who has previously worked as an assistant director in M Manikandan’s Kaaka Muttai (2015). 


People of Naduvampatti go on a road trip in a lorry to their family deity temple to sacrifice a goat for the well-being of the newly wed couple Ramamurthy (Viddharth) and Seetha (Raveena). To impress Seetha, Ramamurthy drives the lorry and in a  freak accident, the vehicle hits something and to their shock they find a dead man and a bike! After the initial shock and heated argument, everyone in the vehicle decides to cover up the murder for the sake of the couple and a lawyer also reaches the spot! What’s next is an interesting tale strongly portraying how people feel culpable for a loss of a human life whereas they kill animals in the name of sacrifice and worship without any guilt. 


Films like Oru Kidayin Karunai Manu stand out as there is a strong content and message which is told in a simple, realistic manner with loads of humour. The characters are lively and raw that after a point of time, we don’t really see them as actors and feel like being there, feel their emotions, wit, and distress. In fact, not just characters, our heart slowly goes out to the voiceless goat, which speaks volumes about the kind of impact created by the film. The film’s main attraction is the bunch of eccentric characters with colourful names like Yezharai, Oor Muzhungi, Seval, Kunjukkari, Arumpaadu and Vengala Thonda. And the cast, largely comprising unknown or less-familiar actors, is wonderful. The humour is distinctly rustic and instantly chuckle-worthy, like the scene where they decide to use polythene bags as gloves to avoid leaving their fingerprints on the body. 
Viddharth once again proves that he is an actor with substance and chooses films which are close to reality. All through the film, we never notice Viddharth’s acting prowess but at the end of the day, he justifies the character given to him. All the actors even in small roles shine. The movie has beautiful music with a tinge of folk and the climax is a scream.
