Raman Thediya Seethai
Movie review

Starring: Cheran, Pasupathi, Vimala Raman, Ramya Nambeesan, Navya Nair, Gajala, Karthika, Nithin Sathya

Direction: K.P. Jagannaath

Music: Vidyasagar

Production: Moser Baer Entertainment & Global One Studios Production

Cheran appears once again on screen after Pirivom Sandippom, this time he is directed by his protégé K P Jagannath in Moser Baer productions’ Raman Thediya Seethai. As the title indicates, the film is all about the search of an apt soul mate for Cheran.

Cheran is an exceptionally brilliant boy who ranks 2nd in the state in the 10th standard exams. However this does not seem to please his mom who taunts him for not bagging the first position and his feat goes without being given due recognition. Though bogged down by this, he raises his bar too high to perform exemplary well in the 12th exam which eventually affects his mental health and he finds himself in Kilpauk Mental Hospital. Though he recovers and returns to normalcy, he does not find acceptance in the society which continues to treat him as a mentally ill person. As he is left with no option, he is not able to continue his studies and resigns to the fate of taking care of his dad’s mediocre business of printing invitations.
As the years roll by, he reaches marriageable age and is in the process of scouting for a suitable bride. Not wanting to hide his past, Cheran reveals that he was in the mental asylum for sometime and as expected this truth becomes a deterrent factor in his mission of getting married. He gets rejected and it takes three years for him to get married. In this process five women walk into his life and the film revolves around them and who accepts Cheran forms the rest of the story.

Pasupathy as the blind Radio Jockey does a brilliant job. His mannerisms and body language are par excellence. The movie is sure to be a landmark in his career. However, the natural sequences linked with Pasupathy get jarred with the artificially thrust fight scene and his character suffers a serious blow at that juncture.

The hospital scene where Cheran gets slapped by Manivannan when the former tries to hold Manivannan’s grandchild moves the audience. Karunas’ presence does not evoke any laughter.

Among Cheran, Pasupathy and Nithin Sathya, Nithin has perfectly enjoyed essaying his role and has delivered the best. Cheran’s role requires him to evoke sympathy right from the beginning and beyond a point it starts getting a bit tiresome. Heroines have done their bit.

The director needs to be appreciated for delivering a film without kissing or glamorous scenes. However, he could have tried to make the subject a bit more interesting.

Music by Vidya Sagar is a big let down for the film.

Heavy sentiments and pathos drench the film which may not go down well with the youth. Perhaps, RTS may find some takers in newly weds and may be liked by some patient souls. However it would be a strict no-no for those who adore commercial potboilers. The ray of hope comes in the form of ladies and other domestic audiences who enjoy the daily soaps on TV; they are likely to find this kind of a subject and narration suitable to their tastes.

Verdict Has its chances if soap lovers show up
