Makes Tamil Cinema International
19 July 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

There is a difference in screenplay structure and narrative flow between a typical Tamil film and an international film like 'Acchamundu Acchamundu'. The film is a rarity in Tamil screens - no high sentimental drama, no fussy over the top acting and staging. Just a simple, neatly made film that you will love to watch.

This is a slice-of-life film that looks at the life of a cosy little family made up of Prasanna, Sneha and their kid. The movie is brilliant when it shows the chemistry between the lead pair, and their interaction with their kid is very natural. The director scores with his nuanced handling of actors, and the dialogs are very witty and crisp. The first half of the film is a breeze, as it is filled with such nuanced tit bits of life of a Tamil family in the US. Very enjoyable! I am glad to see Arun Vaidyanathan bring back the smacking wit and brevity of Sujatha to Tamil cinema. 'A Touch of class' which is much needed in today's times of blood thirsty heros, and gory killings in the name of 'realistic' cinema.

Prasanna and Sneha have acted very well, living heir characters and doling out a controlled, under-played performance. John Shea plays a pivotal character, and I will let you see what he does, as I do not want to reveal too much.

Over all, a commendable effort at taking Tamil cinema to the global arena. Camera and sound design are top notch. Production design is neat. Music is sufficient.

I heard the film has won "Best film" at the New jersey film festival and was invited to the shanghai Film Festival in June 2009. I can see why. :)
