Right from his Ullasam days, Vikram has had the knack of capturing a memory of himself among the audiences. Then when Sethu happened he was a household name. He stole our hearts with Pithamagan and then got all our love with Saamy. Then we abused him a little when Kandasam happened and now with Deivathirumagal he is back with no complaints!
Padhu and I watched deivathirumagal last night. With early notifications I carried tissues and I needed more when the film climaxed. The film is about the fight to take a child back to her mentally challenged father who share a perfectly wonderful relationship. With an array of emotions, comedy and law points - the movie moves slowly but steadily making us want to stay in our seats.
Scenes where both father and daughter converse to the moon while away from each other chokes he audience to tears. The climax of the movie in a courtroom scene where the father and daughter meet after a long time. There is a particular little dancy movement the both do which makes even the stonehearts fight back tears! The cherry on this pudding is when Vikram returns the daughter of his to her aunt to give her a better life and walks towards the moon saying his Nila will come back when she is a doctor.
Applause, applause, applause.
