Saroja

Usually we go for a malayalam film without much anticipation. But if it is a youthful tamil film and the team behind has created a good success in their previous project, then the situation differs. Here we are having a similar such situation. After the super success of big entertainer ‘Chennai 600028’, director Venkat Prabhu (Gangai Amaran’s son), S.P.B.Charan (S.P.B’s son) as actor and music director Yuvan Shankar Raja (Ilayaraja’s son) is teaming again in their new venture, ‘Saroja’ under the big banner Pyramid Saimira. So naturally the expectations will be high.



The story line of ‘Saroja’ is not complicated. The four youths (Siva, Premji Amaran, S.P.B.Charan, Vaibhav) decides to go to Hyderabad to watch the India-Pak cricket match. On some other place in the city, the daughter of a multi millionaire (Prakash Raj) is kidnapped. The police headed by ACP (Jayaram) are investigating the case. Those three groups are having their own desires, 4 friends want to see the cricket match even if they lose their right path by miscalculation, the rich man wants to save his daughter and the police want to arrest the criminals. These three tracks go in parallel and the writer-director Venkat Prabhu has treated the film in a humorous way keeping the mood.




Those who have watched ‘Chennai 600028’ will know the style of the director. The treatment here also is similar, but it is little more serious and action oriented. We can see a variety of witty and humour dialogues in each and every scene as before. This is relevant from the fact that even in the middle of some sentimental and emotional scenes; the characters will behave in an unusual manner, they will speak hilariously (Chennai Tamil used is good to hear). Also the dialogues are not cinematic, rather they are realistic only.



Like Siva dreaming himself with his lady love in the song ‘Pothivecha Mallikaimottu...’(song from ‘Manvasanai’) in ‘Chennai600028’, here we can see Premji Amaran dreaming with the group dancers in ‘Aayiram Thaamarai...’ song, from ‘Alaigal Oyivathillai’). The director has given a small scene for some of the artists who acted in his previous project, which include Jay (‘Subramanyapuram’ fame) also. Prakash Raj, Jayaram, Sampath Raj etc has done well in their roles.

Yuvan’s songs and background score goes well with the subject. Sakthi Saravanan’s cinematography is also excellent. Don’t forget that the music director and lyricist Gangai Amaran has scripted and directed films like ‘Karagattakkaran’, ‘Enga Ooru Pattukkaran’etc in the 80’s. Now with ‘Saroja’, his son Venkat Prabhu has also reached the top list of directors in the tamil cine field.



If you have got a good sense of humour to follow the dialogue based humour, then don’t miss the comic-action entertainer ‘Saroja’.
