Devout lower-caste Poojary Madhavcharya lives a poor lifestyle in a village along with his wife, a son, and younger brother, Gopal. He makes a living by offering prayers at the local Mandir, is very much respected by villagers, and believed to actually speak with Bhagwan Shri Kishan. Troubles will plague him after he finds out that Gopal has not only been creating problems for Chaudhry Rudranarayan, but has also fallen in love and wants to get married to an upper-caste girl, Rajni, the daughter of the local Thakurain. Before he could even attempt to resolve these issues, the keys of the Mandir are taken away from him, and he can no longer pray nor converse with Kishanji. Things come to a boil after he is told that Gopal has forcibly taken the keys, and has stolen all the Mandir's jewelry. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Mithun Excels in A Brilliant Film!
16 March 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Bapu's 'Paramaatma' is an under-rated gem from the early 1990's. A Brilliant film, that works big time. Mithun, who appears in dual roles, Excels by delivering one of his best performances.

'Paramaatma' Synopsis: A devout priest must face-off against his atheist/trouble-maker brother.

'Paramaatma' is thoroughly engaging & entertaining. The Screenplay works from start to end, the conflict between the Brothers, is intense & at the same time, highly emotional. Bapu's Direction is sensitive & note-worthy. Music by Bappi Lahiri is fabulous.

Performance-Wise: Mithun, A 3-Time National-Award-Winner, delivers one of his best performances in here. As the priest, he is childish & innocent, while as the atheist/trouble-maker brother, he is heroic & effective. Its a versatile performance that deserves immense praise. Juhi Chawla is charming. Amrish Puri plays the menace, most convincingly. Reema Lagoo is wonderful. Anjana Mumtaz lends grace to her part.

On the whole, 'Paramaatma' deserves a watch for its brilliant story & Mithun's central performance.
