My review of Deivathirumagal in Digital Bhoomi...

My prize winning review of the movie "Deivathirumagal" which was published in the Forum Digital Bhoomi last month :

Deivathirumagal, a father’s lullaby…


Deivathirumagal, a Tamil movie based on Hollywood’s “I am Sam”, seems to be the talk of the town as well as of Digital Bhoomi too…

Vikram as Krishna, makes his appearance as a mentally challenged person working in a chocolate factory in Ooty. He has the mental capacity of a five year old. His wife who is a social activist, renounces her father and sister and their wealth to marry Krishna and dies while giving birth to a girl. Krishna brings up the little girl with the help of his friends in the neighborhood and is very emotionally bonded with his daughter. Krishna admits his daughter Nila in a school which incidentally is run by the kid’s maternal grandfather and his second daughter Shwetha. Shwetha becomes close to Nila and finds out that she is her deceased sister’s daughter. The grandfather manages to take away his granddaughter to Chennai and Krishna fights his way legally to get back his daughter with the help of Anushka, a novice lawyer and her assistant, Santhanam. Does Krishna win the legal battle? Does the grandfather return the kid to him? That is the climax of the story…

Throughout the film, Vikram has maintained his body language as a five year old showing his cheerful smile when happy and an anxious and sad look on his face when Nila is taken away from him. Sometimes he seems to go overboard like in the scene at the court when he falls down and misses to see his daughter. The best scene is in the court when Vikram and Nila (played by Sarah) emotionally gesture to each other and exchange messages. The little girl’s performance as the doting daughter is excellent and at par with that of Vikram’s. Both of them steal the scenes in which they come.

Anushka is charming and beautiful and has acted well as a lawyer with dignity and compassion for Krishna. She also manages to bring out laughter from the audience in the first few scenes with Santhanam’s help. Santhanam is quite good in this film and thanks to the director, Vijay who has created neat and clean comedy.

Another actor who is at his best is Nazar as Bashyam, the veteran lawyer who fights against Anushka. He is at his best as a performer. His characterization as a confident and successful lawyer, followed by a bunch of juniors always is too good. Nazar’s drooped lower lip while arguing in the court is a very natural mannerism which can be seen in real life. Apart from portraying the strict side of a lawyer, he also emotes well as a loving father concerned about his little son who is ill with fever. He is touched by Krishna’s act of bringing the medicine for his son when all the time he had been planning to act against him.

Y G Mahendran as Anushka’s father does not add any credit to the movie. His character seems to be redundant. There is no scope of acting for him.

G V Prakash has scored the music and there are a few lilting melodies like "Aarariraro, idhu thanthaiyin thaalaattu".The song kadhai solla poren is a visual treat especially to children who will enjoy the song as well as the scene. “pa pa pa” is a happy and delightful song when Krishna joyfully tells the whole world about his child’s birth…

The movie on the whole is a good family entertainer and will be loved by those who are sensitive and sentimental.

Deivathirumagal is the “lullaby of a father..."
