Kalidas Jayaram makes a confident entry as a lead hero. It isn't a role with the usual heroic shades and he has come out successful in portraying the character, as it is. In the film, the young actor gets to play the role of the Chairman of Maharajas College. He had to perform the sequences in a realistic manner and Kalidas has done that to perfection. Definitely, he is a young talent to reckon with.
Abrid Shine has proved that he is not the one who follows the routine forms of film-making. Poomaram too is quite different with its mileu and narrative pattern.
Poomaram is a fresh and relistic take on the Youth Festival days of your campus. Don't expect the usual campus fares that are filled with exaggeration as this one is a class apart. Its poetic and real at the same time and is filled with life.
