Taramani - A Daring Attempt By Ram.!


Director Ram of Kattradhu Thamizh and Thanga Meengal fame is not distracted from mainstream cinema as he continues to do off-beat movies that he loves to make. His latest film is Taramani, which has Andrea Jeremiah and Vasanth Ravi in the leads. His latest film is a take on the impacts of globalization.

In the technical team, he has Yuvan Shankar Raja, who has churned good numbers. The movie has Theni Easwar's cinematography and A Sreekar Prasad's editing. 



Prabhu (Vasanth Ravi) is a BPO employee who has lost his focus in life after a failed love affair with a girl (Anjali). Becoming a aimless vagabond, a chance encounter with a bold Anglo Indian girl Dia (Andrea Jeremiah) turns into love and how it is wrecked by his male chauvinist attitude forms the crux of the story which has many layers to it. 



Andrea, as the stubborn girl, has given her best performance. She is natural as a mother to a five year old with whom her chemistry is endearing. Vasanth Ravi makes a solid debut matching Andrea in most scenes, getting under the skin of a confused vagabond who has problems dealing with his women. Anjali, in the role of a traditional-turned-modern girl, made her presence felt in the few scenes she had to play. 

Azhagam Perumal and the other few characters make a mark for themselves. Adrian Knight Jesly as the little son of Andrea walks straight into your heart and stays there with his cutely alluring performance. Producer JSK Sathish makes his acting debut as a police commissioner who serves as a major plot point of the story. The rest of the actors are aptly cast. 

Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music helps viewers immersed in the narration and cinematography by Theni Eswar makes them relate to the places where the story unfolds. Screenplay has a lot of honesty in it and dialogues could not be more realistic. Ram as a director is in complete control of the film as it is his baby. From the inception of the film to final edit, all dependent on Ram and he managed to escape his way through it. Ram’s storytelling really hides itself behind the characters and simply speaks through them in their voice.
