Vaanam Kottattum: Film Review – An Adorable Family Drama

Verdict: With an endearing script and well-cut visuals, Vaanam Kottattum is a great watch.

Directed by Dhana Sekaran, Vaanam Kottattum is an adorable family drama that features an ensemble cast of Sarathkumar, Raadhika Sarathkumar, Vikram Prabhu, Aishwarya Rajesh, Shantanu Bhagyaraj, Madonna Sebastian, Balaji Sakthivel, Amitash, and Nandha. The movie is co-written by Dhana Sekaran and Mani Ratnam, with the latter also producing it under the banner ‘Madras Talkies’. Sid Sriram debuts as music composer through this film while Preetha Jayaraman’s cinematography and Sangathamizhan E’s editing are other highlights.

What’s Vaanam Kottattum About:

A family rivalry leads Bose (Sarathkumar) to kill a man who attacked his brother (Balaji Sakthivel). A remorseless Bose is imprisoned, while his wife Chandra (Raadhika Sarathkumar) who doesn’t want to witness further violence around her, leaves for Chennai with their kids to seek a new life. She finds a job in a printing press and works hard to make ends meet. Years pass by. Their son Selva (Vikram Prabhu) is now a taxi driver and daughter Mangai (Aishwarya Rajesh) is studying law. They jointly start a small scale business and when things start to get better for them, Bose is released and joins his family in Chennai. Meanwhile, the murdered man’s son Bhaskaran (Nandha) comes to Chennai to seek revenge for his father’s death.

What Works:

The makers have succeeded in bringing an ensemble cast who are nearly perfect in their respective roles – watching Sarathkumar perform on the silver screen after so long is a treat to one’s eyes. His chemistry with his real-life partner Raadhika Sarathkumar, who also delivers a tremendous performance, is endearing to watch. Vikram Prabhu and Aishwarya Rajesh are perfect in their roles too. Sid Sriram’s songs are a treat. Balaji Sakthivel is surprisingly amazing in his role. The backdrop of rain has been used wisely throughout the movie, matching well with the title. Dhana Sekaran has retained a Mani Ratnam touch in Vaanam Kottattum.

What Could’ve Been Better:

The plot seems familiar and old-fashioned, although its treatment is different. There are various subplots – the one between Vikram and Madonna, the love triangle between Aishwarya, Shantanu and Amitash, the revenge story – but none have a strong foundation. Shantanu is under-utilized. The writers could have perhaps focused on the family more than creating subplots that don’t contribute much to the movie.

Why You Should Watch:

Vaanam Kottattum is a beautiful family story you wouldn’t want to miss. It has good performances, a decent storyline and a feel-good ending.
