Direction: Shakthi Chellam
Music: Yanidesh
Production: Dandini Films
Oliyum Oliyum’s story is set in the pre-independence era. That is not to say that the movie itself has got anything to do with independence as a whole. Except a few characters that wish to enter into matrimony only after independence, the movie has no connection with the era itself whatsoever..

The film is a flash back of a woman’s life, who braved her parents against wedding before independence but only eventually being deceived into the act. She gives births to numerous babies but none of them survive. Her husband unravels the mystery behind the deaths and learns that she was killing the babies, not wanting them to be alive as slaves, before independence. But one baby girl survives and grows up with her granny listening to her mother’s story, who kills herself as a way of punishing her husband. The baby girl grows up to be a young lady and swears to fulfill her mother’s desire.

Oliyum Oliyum has debutants playing all the lead roles with philanthropist Palam Kalyanasundaram being the only

known and notable face. None of the actors can emote any better than a log of wood and hence the whole process looks trite. Throw in some amateurish direction and dialogues, above all some crass scenes that qualify for more than just skin show, you get the concoction called Oliyum Oliyum.

Director Sakthi Chellam’s earlier credit includes Kiran Bedi’s Salute.
