Sarabham starts off on a high. High up on the top floor of a neat apartment, with Vikram, played by Naveen Chandra, narrating who he is and what he does followed by a brilliant title animation on the top of Vikram’s terrace.

The movie is all about money and scrapes through professional egos and a crime drama as it unwinds. The movie has some good editing by Leo John Paul, especially in the initial portions where the artists look into their wardrobes and then suddenly appear dressed, without the evidence of a transition.

Salony Luthra plays Shruthi, a character touching through different shades. The movie lacks pace in the first half and might leave you with a few logical questions. However the series of events that are lined up in the second half may nullify all those queries.

Director Arun Mohan unwinds the truth behind a crime in the film, little by little, from the viewpoint of different characters associated in the film. Aadukalam Naren plays the role of Salony’s father and he has proven to be a bankable actor yet again.

The movie has many twists nailed into different portions of the story - however the lack of energy and pace in the script might make one feel that the engaging factor of the entire movie is heavily dependent on these twists. If the audience are clever enough to predetermine the surprise elements in the script, those nails of twist might just get weaker.

Naveen Chandra’s performance is above par as he expresses and emotes really well for a debutante. Britto Michael’s background scoring has worked well in the movie, especially at the points in the script where the movie takes a sharp turn.

Produced by C.V Kumar under the banner Thirukumaran Entertainment, Sarabham is a decent attempt with minimal characters, in limited locations with a small budget, shot in a span of thirty days.

Verdict: Watch Sarabham patiently for its surprises
( 2.5 / 5.0 )
