About media….. Don’t think the portrayal was any different from kaakka muttai…. Cinematographer Manikandan S, who also shot Bramma’s first movie Kuttram Kadithal, comes up with some brilliant work. Kakka muttai a few months back, and now this. Merlin’s mother, for instance, happens to be at the scene where Udayan is looking into the car accident, and later, Chezhiyan’s mother helps her pick up some papers that have spilled on the road. Jyothika Kollywood … She tells Manikandan in jest, “Nee Christian-aa irundhirukkalaamo-nu thonundu.” But later, when she gets into trouble, serious trouble, she frantically wipes away the vermilion mark on her forehead, and we wonder if she thinks all this is happening because of her going against her faith. The ‘students shouldn’t be beaten’ dialogue in that seemed to only be of incidental importance to me. Or perhaps even the System. As schoolteacher, she is, in a way, essentially a ‘mother’ to a number of children. That moment of the song, “Kannathil Muththamittaal” is not the flashback or a crowd pleaser but a Slap at the face of the Society – which is having a very tough time with this particular three lettered term! Saw this at MAMI 2014 last year, and as the movie unrolled, I kept hoping secretly (automatic reflex) that Merlin would not go insane. And the way, “The icing on the cake moment – in the midst of the song from one of the Greatest vocal revolutionaries of this part of the world” was visualised and maneuvered to address to one devastating issue of the society. It is a terrific movie. But slowly, almost like a foreshadowing, these lives begin to crisscross. We see her Christian compassion when she insists that the rat that’s caught in a trap is set free on the road and not drowned, as her husband suggests. It’s not just the number of long-suffering mothers in this movie – the wife (Durga Venugopal) of a school principal; the auto-driving mother (Sathya) of one of the children (Chezhiyan, played by Master Ajay, whose impishness is irresistible) at that school; the devout mother of Merlin (Radhika Prasiddha) who is first seen handing out religious pamphlets; or even Merlin herself, who has just married Manikandan (Sai Rajkumar). “Orey coffee… full-a scan pannitten,” says the principal of Manikandan, as if he were appraising the future husband of his own daughter. They are at odds with the rawness, the minimalism of the narrative – they’re too smooth, too lushly orchestrated, a little too eager to tug at the heart-strings. She has, after all, married a man named Manikandan, and her mother, clearly, does not approve. The movie has its own set of flaws like trying to be a thriller or the melodramatic contrivances towards the end. It gave me the feel of really standing in one, despite watching online.

It’s there in the words on a sticker on a truck’s windshield, and in the principal’s invocation of “aandavan.” It’s there in the image of the crucifix inside Merlin’s cupboard, and in the cross reflected in the mirror of a scooter. A few rough edges here and there, but on the whole, I felt it was an absolutely terrific movie. At first, it seems stupid and borderline-irresponsible that the principal and his wife go to such lengths to protect Merlin, but later, in a devastating scene, we see why. Let her eat!” The questions that the journalist asks after entering the auto were not caricatured. A key early scene belongs to Udayan (Pavel Navageethan; and what a coincidence that the actor’s name is that of a character in Mother), a hotheaded but fair-minded Communist who is Chezhiyan’s uncle. Revolving around events that take place in a school in a single day, this extremely well-written docu-drama encompasses multiple themes ranging from motherhood to religion and humanity. But Bramma uses them very well. Kuttram Kadithal is an upcoming film which stars a bunch of newbies. The latter was the credo of some Communists, most famously Maxim Gorky – indeed, his Mother is explicitly referenced here. Radhika Prasiddha, playing a school teacher once again (last time she played a teacher in 'Kuttram Kadithal') has got an offbeat role with a murky twist at the end. But novels have many, many pages and a lot of interiority. Any normal person who reads the statement that the District Education Officer gives would feel the same way, “Hospital report padi andha payyanukku erkanave moolaila kattiyaam.

I wonder why? I saw in her confession only her courageous stepping up and owning up her mistake in front of the public. One thing that really struck me was the midnight song blaring in the bus stand. An edited version of this piece can be found here. I was happy for not photo-frame-finishing either the kid or the teacher which was a convenient route to take. And it’s there in Merlin’s guilt. The major problem here is that today's audience cannot connect with the old idea of "being sincere" in love and the long preachy dialogue that hero mouths in the end. Consider Merlin’s profession too. At first, it isn’t guilt – just an unnamed feeling. His reveals are slow, he trusts the audience. Perhaps extra caution after the accident of his daughter? Music /re recording was just so brilliant there. KEY: Kuttram Kadithal = punishment for a crime; Mother = see here (Not since Kadal has there been such overt religiosity on screen.) saw it late. He finds interesting visual parallels for the lyrics – a line like ovvoru naalin vannangal has children playing with colourful saris. And I don’t get this at all!! One can say that he shows brilliance in conceiving some characters while hits rock bottom in others. And in a classroom sing-along, he gives us a sense of the entire school, which practically becomes a character, as ‘well-written’ as the people who inhabit it. The camera just silently follows her, capturing her frustration and acceptance of the treatment she is meted out. This drama takes the form and pace of a thriller, when a school teacher uncharacteristically hits one of her students, pushing him into a coma. And so that we don’t miss the Gorky connection, Udayan is seen reading Thaai, the Tamil translation of Mother. The IT-guy-talking-to-reporter scene was shit, I agree. I just watched the movie on Tentkotta and felt that the movie was terrific. September 26, 2015 by Rahul Bala. Explore more on Kuttram Kadithal at Dnaindia.com. And I felt like saying “Leave her alone! To me, the movie, the way you say (Or how I interpreted from your Review), is not just something about the Novel (Which I haven’t read, maybe that might have got me form this diff opinion) and Motherhood or something to do with just religions and Communism. Not the usual crappy masala but something with a strong storyline. 'V1' is an upcoming investigative thriller that features debutantes Ram Arun Castro and Vishnu Priya while Vijesh, Mime Gopi, Gayathri, Linga, Monica, Manisha Jith and others will be seen in supporting roles.
