Paramasivan - Action aplenty
is action time. It is Ajith time, too. Paramasivan marking the
return of a leaner and fitter Ajith, looks like it will manage
to re-launch his career. Director P Vasu has managed to cobble
the right amount of masala, fun, action and sentiments to cook a
dish that will go down with Ajith’s fans who had been hungry for
The movie, in a genre that we have seen from the likes of
Vijayakanth and Arjun, has given Ajith the right platform to
purvey his prowess. And he too seems a man who is in good form.
The story is about Subramania Siva (Ajith) ---the character name
itself talks about the nationalism ---- who is serving a death
sentence. But life is not all that bleak for him as ‘Nethiadi’
Nandakumar, an upright police officer who is on a mission flush
out a terrorist outfit that had been behind the Coimbatore
Nandakumar knows about the mettle of Subramania Siva as he knows
the latter is serving the term for killing venal cops who had
bumped off his sister and father. Nandakumar orchestrates a plan
and gives Siva a new avatar ---Paramasivan --- and sets him on
the path of the terror group. His brief is simple ---- snuff out
ultras. But the problem is Nair (Jayaram), a CBI man and his
assistant (Vivek), smell something fishy, and are also on the
trail of Paramasivan.
Who wins this entertaining race is the story of the rest.
Ajith, looking every bit the dashing and debonair actor that we
know of, is in good form. He plays the angry young man and the
avenger hero to near perfection. Ajith, who looked jaded and wan
in his previous movies, is absolutely refreshed. He has also
been given a role that suits him well.
as the policeman with a mission is splendid as only he can be.
He brings to his role a liveliness and a unique joi de vivre.
Jayram as the CBI man has a limited role. Vivek as his assistant
is full of beans. Lalila’s character is modeled on her typical
lines and she has nothing beyond her usual ken to perform.
One of the main attractions of the film is its amazing fight
sequences. Ajith goes out of the way to do those risky shots.
His efforts and earnestness have paid off very well.
Vidyasagar’s music, though loud on mass beats, has his usual
touch. He has mixed many genres in the songs and delivered what
the fans love these days. Sekhat V Joseph is in fibe fettle and
his shots are eye-catching all through. P Vasu, who is on a
career high, has not strained much. He has taken an
uncomplicated story and told in an uncomplicated way.
