CV Kumar is known as the man with the midas touch. He produces low-budget films and make good money. In the past two years, the producer has made six films of which most have won critical appreciation and became commercially successful flicks also. Once again, he is back with his latest film Sarabham.
Like his earlier films, Sarabham does not have stars in the cast. Naveen Chandra, Salony Luthra and Aadukalam Naren are in the key roles. The Tamil flick marks the debut directorial flick of Arun Mohan, the son of veteran actor Anu Mohan. Sarabham, which has been finished in a short time, has Britto Michael's music, Krishnan Vasanth's cinematography and Leo John Paul's editing.
Sarabham is a mystery-thriller film, which runs for two hours and sixteen minutes. The movie, which has been given 'U' certificate by the Regional Censor Board, has an edge-of-the seat storyline. The background score and the editing departments are the other highlights of the Tamil movie.
Vikram (Naveen Chandra) has a plan for a theme park, which will be built by his construction company. But his plans get rejected.
Vikram is frustrated and he is now seeking a revenge against the man (Naren), who rejected it. Heroine Salony Luthra joins him in his mission. By the end of the first half, their plan is executed and the second half solves the mystery.
The story progresses slowly but steadily, which keeps the audience hooked to their seats. Sarabham should not be missed from the opening scene. As the director claimed prior to the release, the Tamil movie should be watched from the beginning to the end without at most concentration. Continue reading the review on the slideshow...
The screenplay by Arun Mohan is well-written. The first half puts a perfect foundation to the proceedings in the second half.
The only drawback will be the slow narration. It also demands you to be attentive. Else you will miss out all the fun and if you are an intellectually brilliant, who can predict the story in advance, there is not any excitement to watch the movie.
Naveen Chandra and Naren have come out with flying colours. Salony Luthra is a promising actress and she has a lot of talent.
Music by Britto Michael is good but he impresses audience with his background score. Krishnan Vasant has done a neat job and editor Leo John Paul's work is praise worthy.
Sans the usual commercial elements, Sarabham has turned out to become a fine work in this genre.
