Enjoyable Entertainer: Raman Thediya Seeethai
Cast: Cheran, Vimala Raman, Ramya Nambisan, Manivannan, Pasupathy, Nithin Sathya, Navya Nair and Gajala.
As the title suggests, the film is about the protagonist searching for a suitable match. It has a strong storyline involving many characters. Debutant director Jagannath has made the narration simple with some interesting twists and genuine emotions.
Venugopal (Cheran) runs a successful wedding card printing press and a card shop attached to it. Due to parental pressure to excel in school, he had gone through a lot of stress and needed psychiatric treatment for eight months in his teens. This experience has made him stammer. Now leading a normal life as a businessman, he doesn’t want to hide the truth. So he confides in the girl he meets with the intention of marrying. Ranjitha (Vimala Raman), living in picturesque Nagercoil, rejects him after hearing about his past and Venu gets into his shell.
His second effort almost succeeds, but on the day of the wedding, the bride Vidya (Ramya Nambisan) runs away with her lover, leaving him totally shattered. But he saves the honor of the bride’s family by hiding the truth to the public and taking the blame on himself.
Vidya’s father Manickavel (Manivannan) becomes sympathetic and starts looking for a bride for Venu.
Dejected, Venu loses hope, but his meeting with visually challenged Nedumaran (Pasupathy) a radio jockey, changes everything. Neduraman leads life with confidence and brings happiness to other people.
Inspired, Venu becomes a new person and accepts Manickavel’s suggestion to go to Nagercoil seeking the hand of Gayathri (Karthika). But he fails again. Gayathri has unspoken love for Kullasekhar (Nithin Sathya), a petty thief turned auto driver.
Meanwhile, he meets Ranjita and Vidya in Nagarcoil.
The film then has more turns and twists.
The film has eye-catching camera work by Rajesh Yadav, who has captured Nagercoil and Athirapally beautifully. Kola Bhaskar’s crisp editing adds value, as does Vidyasagar with two memorable songs.
Debutant director Jagannath has succeeded in bringing out an enjoyable family entertainer without getting sentimental.
