Commercial cinema always shines in the film industry but very rarely does the art movies come up in the Telugu film industry and we now have one film dubbed from Tamil. The film has got a lot of interesting elements and is also a relevant movie in recent times.
After a long time, a film on the music backdrop has come up in Telugu and it is titled as Sarvam Thala Mayam. The same was the title in Tamil too. Rajeev Menen directed the film almost after 18 years and GV Prakash played the lead role in the film. Nedumudi Venu played a key character in the film. The film's review is here. Read on!
Peter Jhonson (GV Prakash Kumar) belongs to a low class who makes musical instruments. He loves Tamil hero Vijay a lot and is a happy go lucky person. He attends a concert of Rama Sastry (Nedumudi Venu) once and gets impressed with the way he plays the Mridangam.
Since then, he wants to learn it. He plans to join Rama Sastry as a disciple. What happens then? What troubles did he face in the process? What happens in the end? Forms the story of the movie.
GV Prakash Kumar performance is a highlight in the film. The music director turned actor has fit himself into the character very well. GV presented a natural performance in the film. The variations that he showed through his character is impressive. The heroine Aparna Bala Murali is good too.
The love track between the hero and heroine is impressive. Vineeth shined on the silver screen after a long time. He has played his part well and impressed one and all. Nedumudi Venu is certainly one of the finest actors of our generation and his performance is another major asset for the movie. The other actors made their presence felt.
In terms of the technical aspects, the film looks solid. Rajeev Menon is good as a writer in the film. His writing is perfect in all the key scenes. The screenplay looks slow but the way the emotional scenes were handles proves the skill of Rajeev Menon.
The music by AR Rahman is good and his background score in the movie is sensational. The cinematography by Rajeev Menon is certainly impressive and the editing work is good. The production values of the movie are grand.
Sarvam Thala Mayam starring GV Prakash Kumar and Aparna Bala Murali is directed by Rajeev Menon. The film hits the right chord with the targeted audiences but all may not like the movie as much as the targeted audiences do. The struggle of an aspiring musician coming from a low caste was shown naturally in the film.
The story is simple but the screenplay is having a lot of flaws. Had there been more depth in the way the film was projected, it would have appealed to a lot of audiences. On the whole, the film is worth a watch.
