Sasikumar's last two movies Sundarpandian and Kutty Puli had done commercially well despite getting thumbs down from critics. He is returning with Bramman, which is releasing worldwide today (February 21).
The trailer and the promotional materials have left no stone unturned to leave a good impact on the audience. It also raises expectations on the film and made audience to await the release of the flick. Bramman is directed by newcomer Socrates, a former assistant of Kamal Hassan and produced by Kannada producer and distributor K Manju along with Anto Joseph from Kerala.
Well, has Bramman lived up to its hype? Can the film be yet another hit in Sasikumar's career? What the movie has to offer to the audience? All these questions will be answered in the review.
Bramman is set in Coimbatore. The film tells the story of two friends, who are separated at early age, reunite once again. In the first half, Shiva (Sasikumar) will be seen running a theatre along with Santhanam. But he was not successful in it and gets criticised by people for the same. As he could not generate enough money from his theatres, he decided to meet his friend played by Naveen Chandra, who is a settled filmmaker in Tollywood and seeks his help to renovate his theatre.
He leaves Coimbatore and comes to Chennai. However, he could not meet Naveen Chandra, but he become friends with Soori. At this juncture, a producer by mistake believes Sasikumar as Naveen Chandra's assitant and offers him a movie to direct. What happens next should be seen on screen.
Friendship has been the core theme in Sasikumar's some of his hit movies and audience could see it again in his latest film Bramman. Apart from it, there is love, comedy and romance in the film. Continue reading the story on the slideshow...
Sasikumar will be seen in colourful avatars in Bramman. But the actor, who is known for giving brilliant performance, is okay in the film. Lavanya Tripathi appears good.
Santhanam's comedy may not work at parts, but it brings relief. Soori and other actors have done justice to their roles.
Technical departments fail big time in Bramman. Jomon T John is poor behind camera as there are blurred scenes at parts. Music by Devi Sri Prasad is not worth mentioning.
Bramman has not lived up to audience expectations. Forget general cine goers, his fan following from B and C centres too may not like it. It doesn't have much to offer other than a loosely narrated story of friendship.
