Indian Panorama..indeed!
11 December 2005 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I caught this film when it won an award on Indian Panorama. Raam was the only Tamil entry among the plethora of Malayalam movies screened at Indian Panorama(as usual, in the previous years). Raam is 1 of the latest in the follow-up the range of movies starring newly emerging young heroes in psychotic roles. Following Dhanush in "Kadhal Konden", Bharath in "Chellame", Simbhu in "Manmadhan", slightly older actors like Surya in "Ghajini" & Vikram in "Anniyan" & even Jeeva's older bro Ramesh in "Githan", Jeeva plays autistic teen Ramakrishna with a close attachment to his mother & allegedly murders her.

The film has an aura of suspense right from the beginning & gives us jolts in periodic intervals. Though the film is mainly a character study, it falls in the genre of a murder mystery thriller. Hence, it is a commercial artistic film which has won many accolades for its director & hero. Worth the DVD. I do not particularly like the songs here though they have topped the album chart for God-knows-what reason. Yuvan Shanker Raja has scored the music much better in films that were less successful. Watch out for Ameer Sultan's upcoming movie, another character study called "Paruthi Veeran" with another new young hero.
