Uyir Movie review
Uyir is a fine piece of work, which has been handled very skillfully by director Samy. Director Samy and producer R.Balaji are walking the knife edge with this venture. Uyir is a very sensitive story about vehement and tender love, and the value of life. Kudos to the producer and director who have managed to make a success out of such a risky subject!
Sundar (Srikant) finishes his education in Australia and gets back home to live with his brother and sister-in-law Arundati (Sangeetha) in Ooty. The couple has a daughter Aishwarya (Baby Ramya). Theirs is a happy and cheerful family.
Anandi ( Samvruta) also lives with her parents in Ooty. Anandi’s niece and Aishwarya learn in the same school. Srikant and Anandi drop these two kids in school everyday. Their meeting and acquaintance starts in conflict and ends in love.
Sundar’s brother and sister-in-law work in the same office. Their marriage takes place against the will and consent of both the families. Suddenly, one day Sundar’s brother commits suicide. The reason of his death is a mystery to Sundar. He stays on in his brother’s house to take care of Arundati and Aishwarya. Meanwhile Arundati comes to know of Sundar’s love and asks him to wait a while, and promises that she’ll get him together with Anandi.
It takes quite a while to dawn on Sundar that Arundati is not all that she seems to be. She keeps planning to separate the Sundar and Anandi. On many occasions Arundati’s behaviour exceeds limits and is over the top. It is then that Sundar finds out the reason his brother committed suicide.
How does Sundar treat Arundati after this, does he win Anadi’s hand in marriage? This is the climax of Uyir for you.
Sami has handled the screenplay with care throughout the movie. He has beautifully brought out strong and gentle love, and the problems a woman encounters silently in life. He has also conveyed a message to the public through his different story.
The Malluwood heroine Samvrutha has done her part to the dot. Srikant and Sangeetha both deserve to be lauded. Among the lot of heroes who prefer to star only in action movies, Srikant has boldly taken up a different character role.
Sangeetha has proved her mastery over acting. She has handled the negative role with ease and grace. Just like Neelambari form Padayappa, Arundati from Uyir will also be appreciated and enjoyed by movie fans. Especially in the scenes in the second half of the movie where she asks Srikant, “Why is there always a different set of rules and standards for men and women?”, Sangeetha stands tall!
It is the director’s expertise to have handled such a story with hardly any impropriety. Uyir is one in a hundred movies, which will make the viewers think and ponder over it long after they leave the theatre!
