A story about caste and forgiveness from the perspective of a teenager
2 April 2015 | by shiv-86628See all my reviews

This is an unusual story with good cinematography and acting and background score. Different for an Indian film (tamil film). Movie is about the serious subject of caste in a feudal set up in the coffee and tea estates of Tamil Nadu. Lots of issues or touched from caste to globalization without bogging down the plot. Little ambitious for a two hour film. Known actors such as Monica and Sampath are there. Currently, very popular Vijay Sethupathi has a small role but significant role. Looks like one of his very early films. Lots of new faces who suit the role very well. Leads Giridaran and Ashwatha have done a good job also. Some school scenes are very funny. Especially the exam scene. On the whole a well done film.
