Pokkisham is about the love of a woman who is educated in literature. Pokkisham is the treasure trove of love letters shared between two chaste hearts in love through the soft wavelengths of wind.

The film is set in the 1970s when technology had not stepped into our corridors and lovers relied completely on snailmail. In such a scenario, love blossoms between a man employed in a shipping company in Calcutta and a girl studying Tamil literature. Introduction that began in the literature leads to love which travels with them for long distances.

The literary camaraderie between the love birds makes them think beyond boundaries and limits of nation. The societal shackles ingrained timelessly extend its abominable tentacles against the lovers. Of course, love has the potency to thwart all the obstacles and impediments provided the conditions surrounding the lovers are conducive enough.

As the story is set in the 70s, a lot of hard work has apparently gone in to create the right mood and ambience for erstwhile Madras and Calcutta. Art director Vairabalan
under the able guidance of Cheran has created the magic of a period film encompassing the old matchbox, post office, tram, hospital, railway station etc which transports the viewer to a bygone era.

Pokkisham also happens to be Sabesh Murali’s silver jubilee film and the duo has aptly understood Cheran’s yearning and has scored lilting melodies in tune with the times. The crew vouches for a seamless editing by Saravana Ayappan.

In short, Pokkisham talks about the treasured love which is disappearing in the contemporary times. We have lost the immaculate love cherished and hailed by the Tamil literature and culture to the demonic growth of civilization. The soft love has given way to software slush.

“Love is a magical feeling which needs to be felt”, says director/actor Cheran. He appeals to everyone to safeguard and cherish love. Further on he says, “I am off to unearth the love in you and in me.”

Did the love birds whose love blossomed from friendship succeed in love, breaking all the barriers? Or did they end their lives falling in love? Answer lies in Pokkisham.
