Kamal Haasan's Papanasam is a bold and splendid attempt by such a big star on screen. After a debacle in Uttama Villain, Ulaga Nayakan is back with a bang to render a movie that is back with Papanasam.

Directed by Jeethu Joseph, the movie has has Gautami, Niveda Thomas, Asha Sarath, Baby Esther, Anand Mahadevan, MS Baskar, Kalabhavan Mani, Delhi Ganesh and many others to its star cast. The movie has music by Ghibran.  

The entire movie is set in Thirunelveli. Kamal Haasan speaks in Nellai dialect in the movie. The story begins as a simple and a rather conventionally presented family drama happening in the family of Suyambu Lingam (Kamal Haasan). 

He lives with his wife Gauthami and daughters Niveda Thomas and Esther. Almost the entire first half shows how close knit they are as a family but an unprecedented happening mars their peaceful life. How they overcome such a difficult situation is the plot here.It is a gripping and nerve-wrecking script and screenplay.

Everything is thrilling and a sense of what's next is known to anyone. Kamala Haasan has literally lived the role. As Suyambu Lingam in Thirunelveli, he has gone the whole hog. What to say of Gautami.

She is back and right there delivering the best. The daughters Esther and Niveda Thomas play their part well. Be it M S Baskar, Delhi Ganesh or Pasanga Sriram, all have done a wonderful job. Asha Sarath and Anant

Mahadevan besides Ilavarasan doesa superlative show. Gibran's couple of songs and a perfect BGM is apt for the story, while Jayamohan's dialogues loaded with Nellai culture is too good for the film.Produced by Sripriya Rajkumar and  George Pious, Papanasam is a splendid show of Kamal's superlative acting skill.

The suspense element makes you fall in love.

Simple but sweet
