A story that takes us out of our concrete jungles to the sea for a difference. “Neerparavai” deals with the lives of fishermen and their family. As most films would have it, this film also deals with a Christian family who strive hard to make their son a better person. The film expectedly deals with lot of emotional struggles and cinematographer Balasubramaniem provides so much life to the locales in which this film was shot.

The film begins on the present day where Esther (Nandita Das) waits for her husband to return home who disappeared 25 years ago. Cut to flashback Arulappasamy (Vishnu) is a spoilt brat who is under the influence of alcohol always. Esther (Sunaina) is an orphan who is brought up by Sister Benita (Anupama Kumar) from a young age.

Esther goes along with Sister Benita for doing community service. Arulappasamy and Esther get to meet one day and after few incidents, love blossoms between the two. Arulappasamy though an alcoholic, decides to turn a new leaf for Esther and when they decide to tie the knot, trouble comes in a different form and he decides to overcome the struggles to unite with Esther.

What happens to Arulappasamy and where did he disappear 25 years ago and why he hasn’t returned back home? Does Arulappasamy finally show up and does the mystery get resolved? The answer is in this “Neerparavai” which has a running time of 135 minutes.

Director Seenu Ramasamy after his “Thenmerku Paruvakatru” decides to deal on a more emotional subject and the results seems to have been futile. Having decided to showcase a love story on a different ground, his screenplay doesn’t have the emotional connect with the audience. There are few scenes which just simply fail to sync with the flow.

On the other hand, with so many talented actors at his disposal, Seenu Ramasamy could have made sure that the actors had substance in their roles to display their acting prowess. The pace of the film is very uneven as few places move seemingly whilst most of the time it tends to drag. The first 70 minutes of the film doesn’t have a major impact on the viewer and the second half is a bit better compared to the first half.

Other cast includes Samuthirakani, Saranya Ponnvanan, Arul Dass, Azhagam Perumal, Thambi Ramaiah, Varsha Awasti and Pandi. In terms of acting, all the above mentioned actors have done their job satisfactorily. Vishnu as the male lead is a disappointment in terms of acting. He doesn’t vary his emotions except for the scene in the de-addiction center. Sunaina though is a class apart compared to other actors in the film. Her eyes display so much emotion and in the scenes where tears roll down her eyes, she does make people notice her acting talent. Her body language seems to be perfect for the role she plays.

The storyline for this film seems to be wafer thin and as mentioned earlier, its screenplay should have been more strong to strike a chord with the viewer which “Neerparavai” fails to achieve. Music by N R Raghunathan provides some life for this film with his melodious background score.  The song “Para Para Paravai Ondru” keeps playing in the mind even after the film gets over. Producer Udayanithi Stalin will leave no stone unturned to make sure his film makes an impact at the box-office. But at the end, he has to settle for something realistic in terms of box-office returns.

“Neerparavai” – misses the target by a huge margin.
