Raman Thediya Seethai

I’m a big well wisher of Tamil cinema, strongly believing in good movies with novelle ideas. Be it a thriller or action movies like Goutam’s Kaakha Kaakha or like silent stunner Mozhi of Radha Mohan. When Stylish, innovative thrillers with hollywood kinda narratives being made, the big corporates like Moserbaer, UTV, Pyramid Saimira should also encourage quality movies. It’s those Cherans, Ameers, Balas , Thankar Bachans who continue to keep the audience spell bound with their clean n down to earth stories.

I’ve always like cheran’s movies, be it thaavamai thavamiruthu ( I remember many of the older generation heaping laurels on this movie) , Simple concept of respecting ypur elders and forgiveness of younger generation by older ones was the story. These movies are slow, at some point’s stationary, but they are so natural as though it happens in your neighbourhood.

Cheran’s Raman Thediya Seethai. As it says the protagonist searching for his better half is the crux of the story. After being psychologically affected in his childhood, despite getting state 2nd in class 10th examination, the no. of rejected proposals make his life bitterer. The belief and the perseverance of the protagonist is the story. Pasupathi as a Blind RJ was fantafabulous. He shares his motivation with cheran over a coffee session and influences him greatly. His good hearted helping nature and subtle performance by cheran stands out and evokes sympathy from me. He even helps the girl, who eloped with her boy friend on eve of her marriage with cheran. The screenplay is as though it’s the story of someone in my neighborhood.

Kudos to these Tamil cinema makers who make realistic films inviting family audience to movies, even when tamil cinema is making Hollywood style fast paced thrillers

I have not seen even one of Cheran's movies. I get the feeling that this guy acts as if he is all good but does "things" not to be done. I am going to change my view.
