44. Small budget "Dark Horses"

In a period where cinema industry is stretching its limits to provide quality entertainment ,more often than not we end up with high budget extravaganzas that increases the benchmarks of the industry.

But in all the grandeur & amusement ,many a films fails to achieve the crucial aspect of their target i.e ENTERTAINMENT.

But amongst these biggies a Dark Horse gallops away with all the accolades ,the end result is these Dark Horses are a product of small budget that entertains & reaps the rewards.

PLOT : " The happenings in the life of a pampered & unruly son who falls in love with his arch rival's sister & the rest of the plot revolves around whether he succeeds in his love or not. "

Thanks to the word of the mouth reviews from my social networking buddies i ended up watching this sure-shot entertainer from mostly new comers.

The film "Kalavaani" had traces & impacts of previous village oriented films but its the treatment of the script which places the film in a league of its own.

Directed by debutant Sargunam ,the film follows the troubles & exploits created by the youth of villages in a pleasing manner.The director has followed the lines of the other great directors who break the shackles by providing success with a new team & cast.

Kudos to the producer Nazir of Sherali films ,being the first film off their production block i think they have started on a right track.Lets hope we get more quality films from them.

Casting of the film was immaculate ,new comers have come to the party in the film with charming performances which earns smiles & laughs from the audiences throughout the film.

Vimal of "Pasanga" fame stars as the ill-behaved son ,boy isn't he a treat to watch.The trouble he brews with his group of friends gels well with the flow of the film ,his ladylove Oviya serves as the right pair.Her role of a school going village girl is a credible performance.

The other cast includes Saranya ,Ganga Karupu ,Ilavarasu ,Thirumurugan ,Soori & other notable artistes who make up a dominant cast.

Saranya & Ilavarasu as Vimal's parents make up for a great comical family whose dialects are fum to listen & see ,supported with a steady script the actors make the most of their screen space.

The film handles its runtime of nearly 3 hours on the support of its script which serves as its backbone ,the length of the film doesn't bother much thanks to the humorous treatment of the script.

On the whole the team of Kalavaani have provided a laudable work which will surely be lapped up by the audience ,for people unfamiliar with Tamil ,language wont be a major barrier to understand the happenings in the film.

Amongst a flurry of high-tech & high budget releases that rake the moolah in the box-office ,there arrives a film with a small budget handicap that doesn't deter it from becoming the Dark Horse.

  • Director : Sargunam
  • Writer : Sargunam
  • Rating : "PG" for some violence.
P.S : " Be sure not to miss the end credits of the film. "
