Screenplay & Direction
Ram's creations have a uniqueness, be it in the narrative pattern or the layering of the screenplay. He doesn't believe in spoon-feeding but makes it a point to take the audiences to the required emotional world without fail and Peranbu does that with elan. and in fact, it is superior than his previous films. The movie deals with some really important issues, which we have conveniently ignored or neglected from addressing. Never in the screenplay, he has added scenes or dialogues, which are over dramatic but still they travel down deep in to your heart.
It is interesting to see the characterizations and he doesn't judge anyone of them. The way in which he has added nature as a prime character of the storyline is something really special. One can experience its role even without the direct physical presence and the idea is conveyed to utmost perfection. Moreover, he has ably used the voice over narrative, which further digs deep in to the emotions.
There are umpteen number of sequences in Peranbu, which would tug at your heart strings. The emotions are not imposed but they connect with the audiences as the films progresses. Ram transfers a whole lot of positivity to the audiences while narrating the soulful tale of a father and a daughter. Only a film-maker like Ram could have dared to take forward the film, which runs in a limited space in majority of the portions.
Words would be less to describe Mammootty's performance as Amudhavan. The character's helplessness, confusions, doubts and love for his daughter have been conveyed with utmost perfection by the master actor. His performance in that long sequence, which has been talked about, is pure gem. It is indeed a complex character that goes through multitude of emotions and he does each of them in a subtle way to perfection. Sadhna too comes up with a really effective performance as Papa and the consistency that she has maintained throughout the movie is impeccable. Anjali plays the role of Viji with expertise. Anjali Ameer's performance too makes a huge mark.
