Tamil Movie Reviews - Raam

An amazing movie and a good thriller. Excellent acting by Jeeva, Saranya and Rahman. I didnt feel that any of the scenes were unnecessary or a drag. All of it were pointing towards the central theme. The suspense in the movie was well maintained.

Very good story with a simple theme (you will understand it after 3/4 of the movie passes). Comedy by Kanja Karupu is very enjoyable, he's got a bright future. Cameo role by Prathap Pothan (good selection of choosing him as a Psychiatrist). Music by Yuvan Shankar Raja (who recently lost his freedom to Sujaya) is quite decent. The song "Aarariraro" by KJ Yesudas is very good. The background score adds to the thrill of watching the movie - well done by Yuvan.

Good and believable acting by Jeeva. And Saranya and Rahman have also acted well. I have always liked Saranya's acting (I remember her acting in Nayagan very crisply) - she's got a pleasant personality and fits her roles quite well. And Rahman has also done a good role as a Police officer. If you like watching tamil movies, then you can afford to miss all the other recent movies, but not this one.

Verdict: Dont miss it. One of the few good films that are out at this time.

The music was the first thing that impressed me. Total melancholy, except for the reggae-ish Boom Boom. YSR oda rap/reggae ambitions are lately coming out in every single movie of his.... I read somewhere (I think it was the Hindu Take two column from a few weeks ago), that he's gonna come out with a rap album soon....
Btw, Anand, chk out Mounam Pesiyathe too, if you haven't. Same director...

True, it's a movie well worth the watch in a theater.

I also didnt like the Boom Boom song. I think most of the ambitious Music Directors try to include one or more techno/disco/rap/reggae song(s) to make it more appealing to the younger crowd (especially to be played in the Discos/Bars).
Thanks for the suggestion, I havent seen Mounam Pesiyadhe yet, will watch it soon.

Hi. First time visitor here. Neat blog! Agree with you on the review. Excellent film; superb acting by Jeeva and Ghazala, too! One of the surprise hits of this year...I'm told Jeeva is the toast of Kodambakkam now!
Do visit my blog, when you have time. By the way, I'm a gemini too!

Hi Ravi
Thanks! I didnt know she was Ghazala (isnt she the Telugu actress?). Yeah, his acting was really good. Hope he gets good chances like this. Nice to know you are also a Gemini. I have been to your blog before (I think from some of your comments at Ramya's blog, but will roll you so that I can get to see more of it).
