Bramman is the latest movie in Tamil cinema, which has producer – director – actor, Sasikumar, playing the lead role. The movie has been directed by a newbie director called Socrates. Bramman is the story of friendship and how it influences the lives of many people. After Sundarapaandian and Kutti Puli, Sasikumar once again has tried out playing the commercial lead role by straining too much. It seems he has not learned his lesson from the Kutti Puli debacle. Bramman lacks creativity in screenplay and still Sasikumar has a long way to go to become a full pledged commercial actor.
Shiva (Sasikumar) is passionate about cinema right from his school days. He joins with his friend called Kumar (Naveen Chandra), who is another movie buff. Both of them see a lot of movies together during their school days and grow their passion for cinema. Later in life they get seperated. Shiva gets a cinema theatre on lease, while Kumar goes on to become a big cinema director. When Shiva decides to know about the whereabouts of Kumar, his life takes a turn. What happens next forms the rest of the movie.
Bramman, practically, has nothing to offer in the entire first half of the movie. There is a mass ‘kuthu’ song in the movie for Sasikumar and there are elements such as comedy of Santhanam, a romance track and an action sequence, all from a commercial point of narration. The actual story begins from the second half of the movie.
When audiences expect something worthy in the later part of the movie, they are left with nothing but disappointment. Again commercial elements such as unnecessary comedy and song sequences are thrusted into the narration, which spoil the momentum completely.
Overall, Bramman, ironically, lacks creativity in screenplay and falls flat.
