the Cauvery dries up, who suffers
the most? Not the people in
the cities who don’t get
running water in the pipes,
it is the farmers in the villages
who helplessly watch as their
crops wilt in the harsh summer
sun, knowing that each passing
day is pushing them into abject
poverty and starvation. Someone
has to stand up to fight for
those who suffer. The young
Thambivudayaan decides that
he has had enough of waiting
for the right things to happen,
he takes matters into his own
hands. Does he succeed?
Dealing with a theme of burning
contemporary relevance, the
film shows very uncomfortable
realities of rural life. Maybe
that is why it had to go through
a long and tedious censor process
with around 40 recommended cuts.
This shows that the treatment
of the film by director Rajaamahes
has been strong and uncompromising.
The cast is full of new faces.
Music has been scored by Sharavan
and camera has been handled
by Madhavaraj Datar.
It will be interesting to see
whether this socially relevant
theme is able to strike a chord
with the audiences.
