Ilakkanam Review
Ram, Uma

Amidst movies glorifying the heroes, debutant director Chandraseyan has come out with a different film, which is not only realistic but also appeals to the movie-buffs. Chandraseyan has penned the story of an idealistic hero and his joys and sorrows, all told in flashback.

A wholesome family-drama, Ilakkanam is a welcome change among the cliched commercial films.

Debutant Ram plays the hero. Trained at Koothu-p-pattarai, Ram gives his best performance. His soft underplay and right expressions promise a good future to Ram. Uma plays her part well. She plays a caring wife and a mother well.

The movie revolves around Tamizhselvan (Ram), who leaves his town to work as a journalist in the city. He comes across an underworld gang and ends up locking horns with them. His wife Kayalvizhi (Uma) is a compatible partner. Unfortunately Kayalvizhi's sudden demise forces Thamizhselvan to take care of their daughter.

The movie has Vinu Chakravarthy, Rohini, Suba Veerapandian, Balasingh and 'Kaadhal' Sukumar in the cast. Chandraseyan's penchant for Tamil is evident in the movie. Even simple conversational English words, used by everyone in daily life, are translated into Tamil and used well. Bhavatharini's music lends support to the script.

Chandraseyan deserves a pat for narrating a family tale sincerely and honestly.
