Julie Review
Ramya,Dinu Moria

The intelligence of the debutant director is missing. It is just a copy of three decades old subject. For the present generation some amendments should have come and that would have showcased the intelligence of young director Poornima Mohan. A film on womanhood by a woman director and a beautiful heroine Ramya is still interesting because of the still persisting age old problems. A Brahmin and Christian family coming together in relationship is not around us.

Why should we see this film with a wafer thin subject? Ramya, Chitra Shenoy, cameraman Janardhan, music director Rajesh Ramanath and producer Mohan's strong will power on the subject makes you to watch this film.

Why this film is not interesting? The protracted narration style, at least half dozen situations could have been avoided, Dino Morea's standstill performance, the Morris house filled with 24 hours boozing, the dialogues pertaining to purification of the house just because a Christian girl has entered the house, Chitra Shenoy telling that England is her place not India was not necessary. The lack of relief (a few comedy scenes could have been newly incorporated) and above all there is nothing that goes beyond your expectations.

The hullabaloo in the Brahmin family on admitting the Christian girl as 'Sose' (daughter in law) melts down with no concrete reason whether the mother has given final nod, we don't get to see.

Director Poornima Mohan could have rethought on this subject for the present genre. It is the mobiles and e-mails Zamana madam. Even these telecommunications systems fail at times. I think you got the point. However Poornima has the temperament of a family film.

It is the lovely looking Ramya on screen. The romantic Ramya is also responsible Ramya after she commits a mistake that lead to her pregnancy. In both shades she is superb. The film is as if made only for Ramya.

The whole country is talking about national integration. This integration has come at the cost of compulsion in the film 'Julie'. Mistakes bound to happen. To err is human. These errors (what the script of Julie says) of re-unity between two religions could have been transformed on screen in appealing way instead of how it is shown.

Old style of costumes stitched by a new tailor! That is 'Julie'.

Scoring 5/10
