From the filmmaker, who delivered commendable flicks ‘Iyarkai’ and ‘Ee’, here comes ‘Peranmai’ –a desi version of Hollywood superstar’s Rambo. SP Jananathan strikes back with a similar touch of placing a social crisis as central theme blending them accordingly with commercial elements. Perhaps, this could be the best film in Ravi’s career.
‘Peranmai’ doesn’t boasts of an exceptional storyline as we’ve already watched similar films based on ‘one-man army’ (more than hundred times over the screens). Aye! Didn’t we enjoy watching Vijayakanth, Arjun and Sarath Kumar saving our motherland from terrorists? Well, don’t presume this film to be much ridiculous as those films. It has got a perfect narration, interesting elements which go along with little illogicality like a puny girl bashing down a goliath.
The film revolves around Dhruva (Jeyam Ravi), a forest officer raised in tribal community has to train NCC girls. He chooses 5 most arrogant girls (Dhansika, Maha, Liasri, Saranya and Vasundhara) for trekking inside a forest, who are unwilling to work with him. Later they venture into the forest only to witness an appalling scenario as they witness 16 aliens from foreign country having reached there to blow up the Indian Spacecraft that is to be launched.
