Veeramum Eeramum is another violent bloodshed story with the back ground of Salt City Tuticorin from Director-Producer Sanjay Ram.
There is nothing unusual and special to mention in the story. It is the mixer of many don stories like Nayagan, Devar Magan, Thoothukudi and etc. Sankaran (Saravanan) is the 'godfather' of Tuticorin and its surrounding villages, where the culture 'establishing justice and supremacy in the tip of sickles' is prevailing. The villagers respect him because of his stature as a good-doer and a man who helps the poor and needy. His enemies led by his close relative Semmari (Sudhakar Vasanth), a cruel and cunning man who hates him due to decades old enmity between the two families. So blood flows as frequent gang wars take place, creating a law and order problem in the district.
Veerasangili (Deepan Chakravarthy), the Superintendent of Police is trying to pacify between the archrivals and stop the bloodshed gang wars. He tries to negotiate peace but fails to bring Semmari to the table, even after threatening him with encounter action. At a stage, Veerasangili killed Semmari inside the lock up and informed to Sankaran. Shocking with this Sankaran takes a tearful decision to stop all the gang wars and violence in the district.
The romance of Sankaran's henchmen Sanjay Ram with Danya travel as a separate track in the film.
Though the story of the film is good to hear but the treatment and visualization of the script is very cruel. Most of the times the viewers feel that they are in a big slaughter house!
The characterization of Saravanan is perfect and the actor does full justice to his role. As a hero it is a good comeback for Saravanan. Deepan Chakravarthy shows matured performance as a respectful police officer. All other characters irritate by their overacting with jarring tone!
The camera work of Leo and Editorial skills of Sai Suresh make the story some how authentic. Particularly the sound design especially the title card rolls is mentionable.
Yugendiran's songs and back ground score disappointing and it looks like the rehashed work of some old tunes of Illayaraaja.
Verdict - Average!
Cast: Saravanan, Sonika, Danya, Sudhakar Vasanth and Sanjay Raam
Producer - Director: Sanjay Ram
