Miga Miga Avasaram
Producer Suresh Kamatchi has donned the director’s hat in ‘Miga Miga Avasaram’, a film made with a purpose without worrying much about entertainment and other ‘commercial’ factors.
It talks in detail about the travails faced by police personnel, especially when they are posted on bandobust duty during VVIPs visits. The timing of the movie’s release is apt, as it has hit the screens at a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping are in Tamil Nadu.
Samandhi (Sri Priyanka) is a police constable. Her senior in the department (Muthuraman) is a wicked man. He has a grudge on her and is waiting for an opportunity to settle score.
A Sri Lankan leader visits Sri Rangam temple to attend a festival and Samandhi is posted for security duty. She is made to stand on the top of a bridge to maintain vigil.
Samandhi stands there braving the elements. At one point of time, she feels the need to relieve herself. But her boss doesn’t allow her to attend the nature’s call.
The rest is all about the troubles faced by Samandhi and whether she is able to address the urgent need of her body.
Sai Priyanka has performed very well and her performance is the big takeaway of the movie. Script by Jagannath (director of ‘Puthiya Geethai’, ‘Raman Thedia Seethai’ etc) is emotional. Watch out for a cameo by Seeman.
Had Suresh Kamatchi infused more elements to make the movie interesting, a docu feel might have vanished. Sticking to reality, ‘Miga Miga Avasaram’ attempts to convey a message and fulfils the mission to a decent extent.
