Amara Kaaviyam Movie review
Bankrolled by Arya’s production house The Show People and Vignesh Pictures, Amarakaaviyam is an intense love story starring Arya’s brother Sathya and Mia George in the lead roles. Director Jeeva Shankar, who made an impressive debut with Naan has helmed this love story. Thambi Ramaiah, Ananth Nag, Rindhuravi, Elizabeth are seen in supporting roles. Music composer Ghibran, whose career is on a roll right now has composed the tunes for this film. The cinematography of the film is handled by the director himself. Suriya has taken care of the editing part.
Amarakaaviyam’s story is set in 1998 and showcases the love between two adolescent children Jeeva (Sathya) and Karthika (Mia George). This love story does not involve cell phones and the internet, but is purely based on love letters. The movie opens with Sathya in jail and starts thinking of his past. Sathya and his friend Balaji are studying in the same school from Ooty. Mia George is their classmate. Love blossoms between the two and they end up in solitary rendezvous when Mia's parents were out of town. When the two go overboard, their parents force them to leave each other. A dejected Sathya picks up violent ways to meet his love Mia. Mia's father gets agitated and files a complaint against him. After police's interference, Jeeva is sent to counselling but is adament over his love for Mia. In an attempt to meet Mia, Sathya fakes his recovery. Will Sathya meet Mia? What happens to their love? Will their parents accept? Well, then head straight to the theatres to know the answer.
Sathya’s trademark smile and his acting skills go well with the story. He has portrayed an angry school boy in love in an intense manner. Mia George’s performance in the film needs a standing ovation. The first half of the film is draggy but, the second half gains momentum with twists and turns. Cinematography and screenplay by Jeeva Shankar compliments the theme of the film. The lush green landscape gives you a pleasant and a soothing feel. Ghibran’s music and BGM needs a special mention. The art department has put in their hard work to recreate the 80's look.
Altogether, Amarakaaviyam is the beauty, trials and tribulations of the pure first love.
