ABCD

IndiaGlitz [Thursday, November 24, 2005 • Tamil] Comments

After Citizen ,almost a couple of years ago, director Saravana Subbiah makes a strong comeback with ABCD. Unlike his debut venture which was a 'commercial mass' film, ABCD dwells on human relationships and is more emotional.

Taking a leaf out of K Balachander's movies, Saravana Subbiah has thrown light on troubles faced by woman in the society today. 

Interestingly, the movie has very little characters, and the sequence of events that they come across in their life makes up the story.

Shaam (Anandh), an MBA graduate, runs from pillar to post in search of job. He stays in the house of a old Brahmin whose daughter Chandra (Sneha) returns home following the death of her husband (Saravana Subbiah), who had been torturing her since their wedding.

She slowly gets attracted towards Anandh for he shows love and affection towards her.

Meanwhile, Anandh comes across Bharathy (Nandhana) in a bus who misplaces her academic certificates.  Bharathy is a woman with revolutionary ideas and looks after her whole family. A sequence of events brings them close leading to Nandhana developing love towards him.

Meanwhile, Anandh comes across one Divya Daisy (Aparna).She is an orphan brought by up church and goes to find a job herself and settles in life all out of her own efforts.  Anandh rescues her from a accident and rushes her to a hospital. Over a period of time, they become  very close friends eventually leading to Divya Daisy opening her heart to Anandh.

Caught in a tight corner, who Anandh decides to marry forms the rest.

An interesting story with some good performance make it engrossing.

Shaam has given a decent performance playing a happy-go-lucky youth who respects the sentiments of others and rushes to the help of his neighbors. Sneha has put up a matured show. Donning the role of widow, Sneha fits the bill well. 

Impressive has been young music composer D Imman, who has utilized the opportunity well to come up with a decent performance.

On the flip side, towards the second half, a lag in the screenplay could have been avoided. The director has thrust a 'racy song' and a stunt sequence as commercial compromise. The director could have avoided Vadivelu's comedy sequences which hamper the flow of the movie.

But, overall, Saravana Subbiah deserves a pat for coming out with a decent film when masala movies are the order of the day.
