Sen­sa­tional Cinema Of The Week

Naticharami Re­view... (4/5) Au­di­ence Rat­ings

Evening Today - - CINEMA -

It Has Be­come Rare A Film With A Sen­sa­tional Cinema Of The Week Naticharami. With The Aim For Block­busters, The Habit Of Hav­ing Some­thing Sub­stan­tial In The Nar­ra­tive Has Suf­fered. Its Proved Again And Again That Busi­ness Does Not Seem To Be Fa­vor­ing The Lesser Clout Of Film­mak­ers Who Come Out With Good Con­tent. But Times Are Chang­ing And It May Not Be Wrong To As­sume We Are At The Right Junc­ture. There Is Quite An In­ter­est­ing List Of Films With Sen­si­bil­i­ties In The Con­tent Lined Up And Naticharami Is Prob­a­bly The First Among The List.

Naticharami (“A Prom­ise To Standby”) Deals With The In­ner Con­flict Of A Young Wo­man. On One Side She Is Try­ing To Come To Terms With Her Hus­band’s Ac­ci­den­tal Death And On The Other, The Chal­lenges For The Life Ahead With One Of The Main Be­ing The Phys­i­cal Needs (Sex­ual De­sires).

But For The Gen­er­a­tion That I Be­long To Or Our Pre­de­ces­sors, This Was Al­ways A Taboo. It Is A Nat­u­ral Act, But Still Is Hid­den And Not Talked About. We Have Enough Texts On This In Lit­er­a­ture But When It Comes To In­dian Cinema There Is Very Less Num­ber Of Films That Touch On This. Man­sore And Sand­hya Rani De­serve To Be Ap­plauded To Bring In This As A Fea­ture. It Is Never Easy To Get Some­one To Play Such Char­ac­ter Roles And Shruthi De­serves Ap­pre­ci­a­tion

And Recog­ni­tion For Per­form­ing This With The Right At­ti­tude.

The Tone On What You Can Ex­pect Is Set Right From The Open­ing Cred­its. The Film Moves At A Brisk Pace And The Time­line Of Over Close To But Still Less Than A Cou­ple Of Hours Fits In Per­fectly. The Nar­ra­tive Is Sim­ple And Strong Con­tent , There Is Much Story That Hap­pens, Its A Mixture Of Emo­tions, Frus­tra­tions, And Re­ac­tions.

The Film Is Not Just About This One Char­ac­ter Who Is Try­ing To Re­solve Her Ques­tion Of Needs. There Are Oth­ers As Well Who Are In Cri­sis, A Frus­trated Hus­band Who Dreams Of Own­ing A Busi­ness But Fails, A Ne­glected Wife Whose Ev­ery Ef­fort To Please Her Hus­band Goes Fu­tile And A Maid­ser­vant Who Has Seen The Best And Worst Of Both The Worlds The Neg­li­gence And The Ac­cep­tance.

The Film Heav­ily Re­lies On In­ter­per­sonal Re­la­tion­ships To

A Larger Ex­tent.

The Cu­rios­ity Of Us­ing A Dat­ing Ap­pli­ca­tion, The Ner­vous­ness Of Dat­ing

And The Mo­ment Of Awk­ward­ness

When You Meet The Stranger On The

Date At Times Flow

In Smooth And At Times Feels Pre­ten­tious. The Film Han­dles A Com­plex Topic But Gives A Feel­ing That It Is Been Touched Only Su­per­fi­cially. Prob­a­bly It Looks Good As Lit­er­a­ture.

The Film Highly Re­lies On Per­for­mances. The Cast­ing Is Per­fect. Shruthi Has Per­formed Well In Most Of The Se­quences But In Quite Some Scenes It Looked Quite Me­chan­i­cal. San­chari Vi­jay Does Fine But The Role De­served Much Bet­ter From Him.Balaji Manohar Shines In His Role Of Dr. Car­valoh. Sha­ranya Is Ap­pre­ci­ated At Ev­ery Scene She Is Fea­tured, She Has Put In Such A Re­mark­able Per­for­mance. Cine­matog­ra­phy By Gu­ruprasad. Sand­hya Rani And Man­sore Have Come To­gether With This Unique Ef­fort. This Movie Had Came To The­atres And To­day We Should Not For­get The Dis­trib­u­tor Chan­dan Films. We Make Sure You Watch Naticharami…
