Director S P Jananathan is back after a long gap. The man who lets his movie do all the talking speaks about a lofty theme. All has come good though little preachy in the movie that has a host of characters but each have a say in the film.

Jananathan has managed to get the best from his artistes, powerful dialogues and neat execution. The screenplay adds strength to the film. Be it Arya, Vijay Sethupathi and Shaam, each has a part to play. Add to it Katrthika Nair's splendid show, the movie is here to stay.

Purampokku begins on a dull note and it gathers steam as it progresses.Produced by UTV Motion Pictures, the movie has cinematography by Ekambaram, editing by B T Vijayan, while Varshan has come up songs.

The movie revolves around Balusamy (Arya), a revolutionary on death row, who is trying to escape from jail before he is sent to the gallows. He belongs to the people and works for the common good. There are two other characters in the film countering Balusamy.

One is the police officer named Macaualay (Shaam), who believes that the rule of law must be dispassionately applied to the society. There is Yemalingam, a hangman (Vijay Sethupathy). What happens between the three forms the crux.

There is of course some romance and hard-hitting message through the film. Arya liven up the proceedings. His matured performance is the hallmark of the movie. He has shed his regular romantic hero tag to present a different side of him. Vijay Sethupathy plays the role of his life.

He is right fit for the character and his body language suits it well. A chiseled Shaam get the act right. He seems to have matured as an actor from his Iyyarkai days.

Karthika Nair has a meaty role to play.The movie has its own moments. There are so powerful dialogues that questions the system at many places.

Technically, the stunt sequences are well captured by Ekambaram.Purampokku make you think, It carries a lofty message and the much-needed in for everyone.

Meaty message
