‘Memu’ is a Tamil movie
directed by Pandiraj dubbed into telugu and releasd today. The movie has
Surya and Amala Paul in an extended cameo role in this movie also has
Bindu Madhavi and Karthik Kumar in a significant role.
When making a film involving
kids, the best you can do is to cut open the cute little world of
children in order to expose their needs and dreams, which are different
from that of the grown-ups.
Pandiraj, a director who is
accustomed to making similar movies, comes up with yet another brilliant
flick, which deals with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)
among kids and the world of their own.
Interestingly, ‘Memu’ demands the attention of parents more than kids, as the movie teaches how to raise today’s children. Revolving around the
lives of two couples and their respective children, ‘Memu’ is all about
their goals, disappointment, dreams and contentment.
The movie is being produced by
Julakanti Madhusudhan Reddy, director Pandiraj says, the film will mark
Pandiraj’s last of the ‘trilogy for children’. Pandiraj should be
lauded for taking up a social cause with a message. The movie has a shot
at winning a few national awards for its social theme. However, the
movie lacks a good script to engage the audience. The script has no sign
of spark and falters in execution. As a result, the end product turns
out to be an amateurishly made docu -drama.
To acknowledge and support a
good script is one thing. But being top stars, agreeing to play
supporting roles, requires great sense of regard and appreciation
towards art of good cinema. Firstly, kudos to Suriya and Amala Paul. Not
only have they brought in their brands into the film, but also high
spirits, good intentions and heartfelt performances.
The songs are forgettable and
the background tracks try to lend the necessary support to engage the
audience. Balasubramaniam’s camera work is adequate. The editing shows
no ingenuity in translating the screenplay elements to something
Punch line:A good attempt by Suriya Filmjalsa Rating:3/5
