Uyir - Lot of life

IndiaGlitz  [Friday, June 30, 2006]

Samy, in his debut directorial venture, has tried his hand at a bold theme. Walking on a tight rope, Samy has managed to convey a controversial theme with a modicum of acceptability. Good performances by Sangeetha and Srikanth also make Uyir an engrossing tale.

Inspired by recent Bollywood themes, the debutant director has dealt in detail about a young widow, who tries to seduce her brother-in-law and marry him. Thankfully the story has been narrated sans any vulgarity or glamour.

Though the movie has shades of Vaali and Kalabha Kadhalan, Samy's narration of events makes Uyir different.

Sundar (Srikanth) returns after his studies to Ooty to stay with his brother's family. His brother's wife Arundhati (Sangeetha) shows boundless love and affection on him. Sundar meanwhile falls in love with  Anandhi (Samvrtiha), who lives in the neighborhood. His brother suddenly commits suicide. Then on, the mantle falls on Sundar to take care of the family. Slowly, Arundathi develops a 'feeling' for Sundar. Coming to know about his affair with Anandhi, she tries hard to estrange them.

Sundar plans to put an end to her advances. The rest is about how he overcomes all troubles and marries Anandhi.

It's Sangeetha all the way. On the comeback trail, Sangeetha has proved that she is an actress  to reckon with. Towards the second-half, she gives her best. However at several places she reminds one of 'Neelambari'.

Hatts-off to Srikanth, too. He has given a matured performance, and he has trimmed his body to suit the role. His body language and dialogue delivery have gone through a sea change which is very pleasing on the screen.

Samvritha, the Malluwood lass, has more screen space unlike contemporary heroines.

Fowzia's camera captures the Ooty locales well. However the big let down has been Joshua Sridhar's music. The tunes are very ordinary.

Amidst gangster movies in Kollywood, Samy has given Uyir where the story is its lifeline.
