Director T K Rajeev Kumar has taken the risk of remaking a cult classic like Rathinirvedam, which was made almost 35 years ago. Despite putting in a lot of effort in recreating sound technical values, the director's attempts seem to be falling flat. The movie seems to have failed to retain its past glory.
Rathinirvedam is a remake of the 1978 classic film with the same name, which deals with the lusty affair of a teenager with an older woman. The director has retained the basic theme of the original, but he has surely made every possible attempt in maintaining the taste of present generation.Rajeev Kumar has made some deliberate attempts to show the time frame by using switches, cigarettes, car, scooter and magazines and few other things that were there in that age.
Although his wardrobes for Rathi offer a lot of fantasy, it looks artificial and takes out the innocent charms of the character.Pappu (Sreejith Vijay), who is an engineering student, comes home to spend his vacation. He develops a friendly relationship with his neighbour woman called Rathi Chechy. Smitten by her ample charm, his relationship turns into adolescent love. What happens next will form the crux of the story.
