Poomaram (2018) Malayalam Review:
Poomaram may be a journey through 5 days of a university youth pageant — a celebration of music, dance and literature sure along by friendships and therefore the occasional politics of school life. At the centre of it all is Gautam (Kalidas Jayaram) and Irene (Neeta Pillai), the coed leaders of the 2 prime competitory faculties, every getting to win the desirable champions cup.
Director Abrid Shine nails the atmosphere of a Kerala youth pageant. there’s not a flash within the pageant field that feels out of place. The camera keeps scanning the gang, darting from one person to a different, seldom resting on anyone. the eye that has been paid to details — parenthetically, the slight fumble to dim the lights whereas lighting the championship’s inaugural torch — goes a protracted approach in setting the mood for the film.
The ensemble solid, largely newcomers, hits the mark, as will Neeta Pillai as St.Teresa’s resolute leader. Kalidas may be a delight because the soft faculty leader making an attempt to try to to the proper issue. There are not any slow-motion swaggers or tinted specs, nor will he have a romantic interest. the sole hint of school romance comes within the type of a crush by a first student that he appears to be unaware of. the sole fight scene within the film is treated as matter-of-fact and wont to advance the plot instead of to elicit cheers. Not extremely the type of debut you’d expect from a star child.
But for all it’s freshness, Poomaram cannot not escape the lure of ‘leaving the audience with a message’ and pretentious preaching. build no mistake, i’m all for group action art in daily life, however will we really want the police (Joju George) to require a category on Henry David Thoreau within the police station? The climax feels abrupt, conflicting with the concepts and treatment of the remainder of the film, and steals the limelight from the plot line.
