Aramm takes genuine sincerity to make a movie on neglected communities and incidents that are overlooked. The movie is an outstanding intense incident-based drama that keeps you pinned. The movie takes a lesson on how to make movies with social issue at its core. Director Gopi Nainar worked hard for a real social message rather than copying old films and making commercial compromises. Excellent! It is not only one of the best films of 2017, but among the finest films you’ll see in a long time. Director Gopi Nainar is familiar with his milieu and understands his characters & their motivations intricately. Aramm boldly touches many important hurdles in the system, without forcing anything into the grid. Lots of thrilling moments that’ll arise cheers ultimately.
Nayanthara is a service minded district collector named Madhivadhani. A village under her circle suffers from the basic need of water even for drinking. There happens a major accidental issue for an innocent girl from a poor family in that village due to the lack in care by the Government. What happens after Nayanthara heads out to solve this problem forms the remaining story. As a movie that deals with a strong social issue, Aramm is bound to ruffle a few feathers in the course. However, the makers of the film have said that the film is not anti-government, rather it speaks about people who do not work for the people. The social angle is bound to be interesting.
Nayanthara has to be appreciated for taking up this role and her performance is neat as always. With her tidy make-up and apt costumes, she looks beautiful. Each and every single supporting actor, even atmosphere artists have lived in their roles which helps out to create a strong impact. All the side characters are very strong and it stands as the backbone of the film. The solid content and the brave attempt make the movie a worth watching and there is no doubt that Nayanthara is the real Lady Superstar now. She alone carries the whole film on her shoulder and let’s hope that this movie won’t be categorised as a mere women-centric movie.
The plot which director Gopi Nainar has chosen to do is a pleasant surprise and damn new to Tamil Cinema. He has written a wonderful screenplay to the core story with relevant sub-plots. His direction is great, even a highly crowded scene has come out perfectly & the way he has carried his script is so raw and real. The cinematography of Om Prakash seems so close to the social life which is portrayed in the movie and there is life in it. Ghibran’s music is the highlight of Aramm’s story and his BGM really helps the audience the real pathetic situation of the common people. Aramm is not a movie to be simply missed and it has a social cause in it for which you are also responsible.
