Heart-warming
nihalbinsulaiman1 February 2019
Face of Indian Cinema Mammootty is back with an awsome performance after a decade to Tamil industry. Director Ram's perfect film making method!! Sadhana as Paappa brings an astonishing performance. Very sensitive story, a deep relation between father and daughter. Brilliant cinematography and music.

Perfect twelve
cinish2 February 2019
Mammootty transforms into Amudhan, the father while Sadhana astonishes us as the spastic child. Through the last few months of waiting, from the trailers, the impression was that the spastic child in the trailer was actually a spastic child. Not one moment where the real Sadhana flickers through. Always Paapa, the character.

While Amudhan is always playing the caretaker role, carrying the responsibility of raising his spastic child, one chapter is devoted to Amudhan and his tribulations. That was the chapter where Mammootty stood up and declared that he is indeed world class, the best of the best. Performance reminiscent of Amaram, and perhaps even better. There are other magical strokes too that come through at various points as would from an honest, realistic narrative of a storyline centered around being a spastic child, and raising a spastic child.

It is however also true that the admiration for Mammootty meant that you could never only see Amudhan on the screen. When simple non-melodramatic close up shots of Amudhan surface on the screen, you cannot but feel the Mammootty aura.

The movie asks you very direct questions and gives you many blatant truths. It is not designed to make the viewer cry. While the subject can easily lead into such moments, by design, the movie has been kept even keel.

While the narrative is slow, there is so much content to wade through that it will take some time for the experience to sink in. Perfection shines through in many scenes. Trailers that had been released are unedited scenes from the movie as is. They have a completeness to them as is. Through slow and seemingly mundane scenes, the movie suddenly takes a strong stand that you cannot ignore, or reveals something new that you did not see coming.

To all the "retired peacefully" lifestyle seekers, the movie asks whether you would let a spastic child live in your neighborhood if she screams uncontrollably at night? That is how the movie starts. Forced into exile, Amudhan seeks to live with his daughter in an isolated house in a beautiful valley where the mist and the mountains give the cameraman a canvas. Tarkovsky's mists had set too high a standard in my mind to be met here in Peranbu, but the sights were really nice, though the mist seems to have been sped up a bit that did not feel as natural.

In a matter of a couple of seemingly slow scenes, the movie communicates that the daughter is not initially close to her father and then just as effortlessly brings them together with very realistic beautiful small incidents with background music that gels everything together nicely. No fanfare. Just honesty. This promise has been kept all through the movie as the movie asks one tough question after another and files open complaints against the injustices that it sees in the protagonists' world.

The movie addresses the challenging question of sexuality of a spastic child in a few of it's later chapters. Her sexuality is as real as any other teenager's while her being a spastic adds an incongruent challenge to it. The movie addresses the subject forthrightly. There is a scene where the overload of information on the subject destabilizes Amudhan leading to a minor accident. That scene is beautifully open to interpretation.

There have been so many movies made already and the typical challenge is to be able to say anything at all that is new. Peranbu comes across as if it is unaware of any such challenges. There is so much that the movie says. Filled with insights, the movie is impossible to ignore.

The music and background score of the movie has been excellent and aligns very well with the communication style that the movie has adopted. Emotional, but at the same time, simple.Casting has been perfect. Every single character in the movie has found the right actor to represent him/her. Presented as twelve chapters, but still very nicely integrated, editing has been very good. Camera work has been subtle and gentle for most of the movie. Great story, great screenplay, masterful direction - a must watch!

A Film that brings out the in depth emotions of a human being
ganeshbalan1 February 2019
Peranbu is a story which brings out the emotions and positivity that stays low inside some one's mind. It fills your heart with a scope for better opportunities in life. The movie shows the bright side of our life in a different way which demands us to think about our life. A Complete heart touching story executed in an extraordinary way by the cast.

Content which was never touched by any director in the world
sivavishnusv1 February 2019
Saw this deeply hard-hitting movie called "PERANBU" today ..was unable to come out of the mood for nearly half which was created by this movie ... feeling proud to say that such story was never dared to try by any directors in the entire world cinema ...by just looking at the teaser or trailer people may think this is just about a father- daughter relationship...but this is more than that...more realistic and deeper than anyone could have ever imagined... especially the climax if this movie ...no hero would dare to do such role expect the legendary actor MAMMOOTTY sir .. such a down to earth performance...he created the soul for this movie and it was very well carried by the girl SADHANA who has played the role of his daughter... marvellous performance from both of them....if there is any biggest award in this entire world then it must be given to this movie's director...even Oscar is not enough for the performance of the lead actors in this movie . Now I feel.. we are better than Hollywood when it comes to making realistic soulful movies

Rarest of rarest ❤
sayedlaldon2 February 2019
Peranbu (2019)

This film is phenomenal & truly magical. Probably the most beautiful movie ever made. A Masterpiece indeed ❤. One doesn't have to mention anything about Mammootty's acting skills as we all know it's legendary 🙏. We have seen what an incredible actor he has been over the past 48 years. This movie will definitely go in the records as one of the best film ever. I really appreciate Mammootty for doing this role with such an ease. I will not be surprised if Mammookka gets a national award for Peranbu. The perfection that he brings to his character is absolutely mind blowing as always. As an actor he is a class of his own. And Sadhana has lived the role & she was amazing and deserves the national award. Both Anjali & Anjali Ameer were outstanding 👏👏. Yuvan Shankar Raja's BGM and songs brings soul to the movie 👌👌 & Theni Easwar's DOP is beautiful 😍. Peranbu is gonna grab National awards for sure. Thank you Ram sir for giving us this gem. You are the master 👍. Hats off to you. Peranbu is so real & haunting. The story of life & some have it harder than you think 😢.

A must watch ❤.

ONE OF WONDERS IN FILM HISTORY!
sreeragmeppadath1 February 2019
It's too hard to explain my feelings.I prefer that one should watch the movie without knowing anything to understand the depth of the film themselves.All the characters are perfectly crafted.Even a letter has a lot to say.Mammooty should do movies like this instead of flop commercial movies.This movie deserves nothing less than 10.All the stars you decrease indicates how sadistic you are.Please watch this movie from theatres so we can have more like this instead of fans themed biased movies.Love from all my heart
