A purely veg movie of affable characters and the bond between them.
5 July 2014 | by parkbench-636-5421See all my reviews

"Saivam"

A movie about bond between family relations and incidents which happens in our family, message of vegetarianism. At 8 years old Sarah is my favourite actress, her expressions of cringing in fear regarding the safety of cock, smile that brings cheer to everybody, solving problems by not knowing the actual situation, she reminds us of younger girl child in our family.

Pros: When a cook in the family by lying the cock was found easily brings the entire family to a place when everyone is separated due to a issue, reminds us the value of the true servants in our family how he shares rapport with everybody in the family and how he has nothing to loose in critical situations but can do anything to bring happiness to a family.

Family bonding, love for the animals, large houses, Sarah, the little boy who fights with Sarah, teenage love, team work. Once you start watching this movie you will easily get into the family, such that you will know what is the situation each character will face next or do next as it entirely replicate our family like the question the childless women is going to get her about child in the temple, a grown up girl not being allowed to talk to the grown up boy almost all the scenes happened to everyone of us or watched by us happening to our relatives.

Nirav Shah's cinematography of using only flames by lamp and light from fire in a song, natural lights used inside our house and scenes reflecting early morning shows us the value of him and whenever I thought and situation needed a background score he brought one.

Cons: Not a single scene to bring out much tears which we seen a lot in the director and Sarah duo's previous combination, which would have brought us some more affectionate into the characters. Sometimes the Sarah character is cinematic.

Verdict: Totally a movie about affable characters for those who are affable and those who aren't.

Director: A.L.Vijay Photogrphy: Nirav Shah Music: G. V. Prakash Kumar Actress: Sarah Arjun( 8 year old girl),Nassar and many intriguing actors.

P.S: sorry to the person on whose leg I walked over without intention while running in a hurry and thanks to him for later helping me out by flashing light from his mobile phone while finding my dropped mobile phone.
