Uchithanai Mukarnthal Review
Sathyaraj, Nassar, Seeman, Sangeetha

The Sri Lankan Tamils issue is always a sensitive one and any film on the same more often than not gains extra attention. Director Pughazhendhi Thangaraj, who made 'Kattrukenna Veli' earlier, on a similar theme, tries his hands on the long-drawn ethnic issue again.

The difference this time is that he has documented the struggles of a young girl who suffered at the hands of the island army. Sathyaraj, Seeman and Sangeetha are the lead actors in the film.

Professor Natesan (Sathyaraj) is a Tamil sympathizer, who speaks out for their cause and often lands in jail for his outbursts. His wife (Sangeetha) too shares his concerns.

When the couple is expecting their child, a young girl Punithavathi (Neelika) from Batticaloa lands up in their house. She has allegedly been gang raped by Lankan Army personnel on 1 March 2009.

She is just 13 but is expecting a child. At this point, a noble doctor (Lakshmi) makes an entry. Natesan, his wife and the doctor try their best to ensure the safety of the child.

Charles Anthony (Seeman), an upright police inspector helps them. One day they come to know that the young girl is suffering from AIDS. They seek the help of Dr CND (Nasser). The girl is traumatized. How they go about helping forms the rest of the story.

Neelika, the young lass is a show-stealer, without doubt, and she displays her acting talent in abundance. Sathyaraj underplays his role while Sangeetha and Seeman do an adequate job. Veteran Lakshmi also deserves kudos for her performance.

Veteran cinematographer B Kannan measures up well and lives up to expectations. D Imman's music is praiseworthy and matches the occasion.

Pughazhendhi Thangaraj deserves applause for making an honest attempt without bowing to commercial pressures. Kudos to Gemini Film Circuit for distributing such an honest venture and a sincere film...
