Welcome to the Kollywood Spring! The industry is abounding with film makers who are steadfast in their commitment to dish out the ‘Movie Perfect’ and the audience is not complaining. Amidst films that in all sincerity work to keep the carnal instincts aroused, director Arun Vaidhyanathan has taken the mantle to
Achamundu Achamundu
address a serious global issue in his debut flick Achamundu Achamundu and passes the muster with flying colors.

The film is about the dark events that take place in various parts of the world which are hard to digest but at the same time cannot be dismissed off. Although the theme of child abuse is a serious issue and has the potency to take on a different shade with even the slightest skew, Arun Vaidhyanathan has done a tightrope walking commendably with absolutely no shades of vulgarity or impropriety. Kudos for tackling such a sensitive subject with a lot of sensibility and acumen!

Casting of Sneha, Prasanna and their daughter and John Shea is perfect. Although Arun Vaidhyanathan’s story moves a wee bit slowly, it nevertheless travels in a linear fashion without even the slightest detour. We may live in America or the best place on earth, but the mere mention of our hometown is sure to bring a megawatt smile to our visage. Testimony to this fact is Sneha. The lady has sure enjoyed her role every inch and essayed it with a flourish. Prasanna and Sneha have lived like a married couple very much in love and their romance is a thing of beauty. Prasanna’s courage in choosing such meaningful films should be applauded. John Shea’s performance as the painter is natural and brings a chill down our spine.

Karthik Raja proves that music is in his blood after all. The other Hollywood technicians have done their part well.

Indian cinema needs films like Achamundu Achamundu. How long would the audience be forced to watch formulaic claptrap? By making this film successful, we are only helping to augur the era of meaningful and socially relevant films.

Be it a girl or a boy child, the events that happen to these children are sure to torment us for after all they are ours!

Verdict: Achamundu Achamundu - The fear is there!
