After Pallavan, director Padmamagan has come out with Ammuvagiya Naan. A movie on a bold theme narrated in an excellent manner.

Opting to go the K Balachander way, Padmamagan has touched up on a sensitive theme - life of a prostitute. At many places, Padmamagan quite typical to KB, allows the visuals to speak more than the dialogues.

The life and travails of a commercial sex worker has been etched out well. Parthiban, as a writer craving to pen the hardships of such women, has come up with a measured performance. Unlike is earlier movies, where he speak a lot, Parthiban this time has got into the skin of the character and  delivered one of his best performance.

Be it anger, sympathy or love and affection, he expresses them with great confidence on screen. Bharathi playing the challenging role of a sex worker in her debut venture is a revelation. She is cool, suave and expressive. Padmamagan can take the credit for introducing an actress, who can not just ooze glamour but also emote and express herself on the screen.

The film revolves around Ammu (Bharathi), an orphan brought up in a prostitute's house. Brought up in such atmosphere, she develops a fascination for the world's oldest profession. She comes across a writer Parthiban, who comes to her place to pen a novel on the life of a commercial sex worker. Her childlike innocence wins over Parthiban's heart. He decides to marry her.

Parthiban's live and care brings a change in Ammu. She understands the value of family and the bond of togetherness. Parthiban completes his novel Ammuvagya Naan and hopes for a National award for it. But fate pays a cruel act in the form of Mahadevan, president of a literary association. He bargains for a night with Ammu to ensure the national award for Amuvagiya Naan. What happens next forms the climax. M S Prabhu's cinematography and the catchy musical background by Sabesh - Murali adds strength to the movie.

The prostitution house has been caught on a dignified manner in Prabhu's lens while Sabesh - Murali provides the right feel for such a serious film with their musical score.

Padmamagan has rightly lived up to the expectations created by the promos. Ammuvagiya Naan is a short and crisp poem on screen.
