For Tamil film audience, good films very rarely come their way. The month of May has already seen the release of Nalan Kumarasamy’s riotous Soodhu Kavvum; I am guessing our nalla neram has started because we have another film that’s very similar in spirit and almost equally competent in entertaining. Debutante Writer/Director Alphonse Putharen’s Neram is a bracing rollercoaster ride that bleeds with finesse.
Time is the most essential factor, the movie trots along with this theme. Alphonse’s intention is quite evident and he has made a movie with passable plots that gives us the thrills and fun. So you’ve seen racy movies that defy time, make you bite nails with the thought of “whats gonna happen next”. This movie is sure to fall in that category, along with some giggles through the ride. The movie was released a week back in Malayalam and opened to strong positive reviews, and now releases here with some Tamil aroma.
Well-qualified Vetri (Nivin) losses his job as his US based IT Company goes into a financial crunch. From there the trouble begins… To add on, he takes loan from the dubious Vatti Raja (Simha) for his sister’s wedding. And the story takes place on the final deadline given by Vatti Raja. Vetri’s only support is his childhood sweetheart Veni (Nazriya Nazim) and his friend John. To pile up his troubles, his girlfriend Veni runs away from home as her father does not acknowledge their love. Vetri’s problems get wroser when Veni’s father (Thambi Ramaiah) fixes her wedding with a man of his choice. To add fuel to the flare, his sister’s husband demands the pending dowry to start over his new found business. Finally Vetri’s friend arranges money and decides to settle Vatti Raja, but on the way Light House (Ramesh Thilak) steals his money. Now Vetri has three hours to settle Vatti Raja’s amount and fix his life.
All of these need to happen by 5pm in a single day and of course with little time left. If you think that’s the end to all of Vettri’s woes, nah! There are plenty more which keep mounting his head, so will he successfully repay Vattiraja to escape his wrath? What happens to his love? How does he escape the police? Go on save some time and watch the movie.
The story takes place in a single day when everything intervenes as Veni is waiting in a bus stop Vetri gets robbed off the money he was to pay Vatti Raja! The chase begins with a lot of twists and turns. The film works on the presumption that there is a time for everything in life, good or bad to happen.
