This is the another movie which got good reports:

Pirivom Santhippom
Cast : Cheran, Sneha, Jeyaram, Murugesan, SN Lakshmi, Vital Rao,
Sangeetha, Mouli, Ganja Karuppu,T K Kala, Baby, Rajalakshmi, MS Baskar,
Balasingh, Rani, Sujatha, Shanmugarajan, Harris Moosa, Devadarshni,
Lakshmi Ramakrishnan, Jeyalakshmi, Annadurai Kannadasan, Mahadevan,
Lakshmanan

Direction: Karu Pazhaniappan

Music: Vidyasagar

Production: Gnanam Films

Karu. Pazhaniappan the director of Pirivom Santhippom, by not infusing
commercial elements of filmmaking such as violence and punch
dialogues, has come up with almost a picture perfect movie.

The crux of the story is that the hero belongs to a huge joint family, while
the heroine is a bubbly single-child, always surrounded by her close
friends. She also aspires to live in a big family with people encircling her
all the time. The two unite in matrimony. Sneha just loves being around
with her husband's mammoth family, whereas Cheran starts longing for
some private moments with his wife. Cheran who eventually gets
promoted and transferred to a different place, is happy of the
development whereas Sneha is a bit troubled. What impact this transfer
has on Sneha forms the rest of the story.

Kudos to Pazhaniappan for the natural narration and the impeccable
characterization. Great attention has been given to even minute details of
story building. Sneha's as well as Cheran's intro has been well conceived
to show that they both belong to a very different family set-up yet have
grown up in a similar atmosphere. The lead pair's different perceptive has
also been well portrayed in the scene where they choose the wedding
invitations. Even sequence wherein Sneha drops a coin into a lord
Ganesh-shaped moneybox has significance that is showed as the film
progresses.

A scene, which is definitely worth mentioning and heartrending, is the one
right after the interval, when Sneha finds her entire family at the new
place where the hero is transferred, only to realise later that it is a dream.
The heroine's loneliness has been etched out very well in scenes where
she pulls up conversation with the electrician, TV mechanic and the
dhobi-woman and in scenes where she listens to the taped voices and
sounds to thwart the feeling of desolation. Jeyaram's character, as a
general physician, is a real treat. In simple terms, he has done a
commendable job. Sneha's role will be talked about for a long time to
come. She uses her eyes very effectively to emote and express her inner
feelings. Cheran is restrained and respectful. MS Bhaskar, Super Good
Laxman and Ganja Karuppu are impressive as the support cast.

There is nothing in the movie that can be termed as a negative, that is, if
you don't mind the slow pace post-intermission, though that is
inevitable, considering the storyline. Even if one could predict what is
bound to happen post-interval, the director has managed to keep the
tale gripping with the screenplay.



Editing, art and camera work by Saravana, Rajeevan and Prabhu,
respectively, fit seamlessly well into the movie, so much so that it is
inconspicuous to the audience. Songs flow effortlessly into the narrative,
but it is in background-score that Vidyasagar clearly stands out. Easily
one of the best efforts of recent times. The dialogues are well
conceptualized and written.

As mentioned earlier, though the second part of the film moves at a
slower pace, the climax is short and crisp with a director's touch. What is
also worth appreciating is omission of scenes that would have dampened
the story's spirit. While most of the directors might have tried to cash in
on an intimate scene right after the wedding, this film has shifted its
focus from that trend.



Finally, this film is not for those who wish to have a gala time, whistling
or catcalling. If you wish to see quality cinema then head to theatres that
show Pirivom Santhippom. Perhaps you might not see a better family
movie in the near future.

Verdict: A definite must for movie buffs. Miss it at your own risk

This is a really good movie loved to watch Sneha showed allot of Glamour which stood out espically when she got married and and her frist night Wink

Hot Burning News Embarrassed Embarrassed
Sneha will be kissing with Cheran on the lips in this movie and in particular the Night Scene Embarrassed. Sneha first was unfortable to do that scene but later on agreed. Cheran is going to face 2nd time kissing as he did with Naya Nair in Maayakandi in the mall song scene inside the dress room Embarrassed.

Pirivom Santhippom is a recommded must see film and at the same time a family movie like Vel.

Well, i would like to see the movie in spite
of Cheran as a hero - always prefer to see director
Cheran and not actor Cheran - He definitely looks
old to carry a newly married young guy role!!!
And on screen he can not emote well either but as
a director he brings out the best from his actors.
I thought it was based on Sujatha's novel with the
same name!!! That is not to be but the story line
is good - will wait for the DVD.

Meli & Pokkiri - good ones.

Agreed Roja, I prefer to have Cheran the director but not the actor.  I wish his role was done by someone else or maybe Jeyram. Embarrassed  Yes, I like Jeyram because of his cute dimples.  And it is funny to watch him talking tamil with malayalam accent.  On the other hand, he won't match with Sneha. Smile
