Siddharth, who has come to prominence in Tamil cinema as a chocolate boy, is playing a completely different role in this film, which is the best family epic in Tamil cinema after a long time. It is not an exaggeration to say that. He has produced this film himself. The main reason for that is the plot and screenplay of this film. It is such a biographical film.

Siddharth, Nimisha Sajayan, Anjali Nair, Sahashra Sri, Abaya Tasneem, Balaji and others in this film directed by SU Arunkumar and music by Vishal Chandrasekhar is Siddharth. Siddharth lovingly brings up his deceased nephew’s daughter Sahashra Sri. Siddharth, who brings up Sahashra Sri with affection and protection so that he does not feel longing for the absence of a father, falls in love with Nimisha Sajayan. Meanwhile, Sahashra Sri suddenly disappears. On one side Siddharth and his friends are searching, on the other the police are searching. However, the girl could not be found.

In this situation, a missing 12-year-old girl is found burnt and murdered. But it turns out that the dead body is not Siddharth’s daughter. What happened to Siddharth’s missing daughter?, Did Siddharth find her? Isn’t it? That is the rest of the story of the film. Siddharth has played the hero of the story rather than the protagonist. Although we have seen Siddharth in many films, who was seen in ‘Boys’, he looks completely new in this film. For the first time, Siddharth, who is seen as a rich houseboy despite wearing a dirty shirt, has been cast as an actor for the role. Siddharth, who plays the role of Ishwaran not only in appearance but also in acting, has added strength through his emotional performance in all the scenes like stumbling without knowing what happened when the blame falls on him, becoming unstable due to the disappearance of his daughter, and rushing to kill those responsible for the cruelty that happened to his daughter.

Nimisha Sajayan, who plays Siddharth’s girlfriend, has acted very naturally. Although he does not speak aggressively about the sexual harassment against women, his dialogues have a great impact on the audience.

Although Siddharth is the hero, the girls Sahashra Shree and S.Apiya Dashneem grab the attention beyond him at some points. The natural acting of these girls adds tremendous strength to the script. More so, the problems faced by Sahashra Sri after the disappearance of Siddharth’s nephew and her performance in it will not leave our minds even after leaving the theater and is sure to keep us awake from our brains for at least two days.

Sahashra Sri deserves the National Award for her amazing performance in all the scenes, including the scene where the unconscious child screams after hearing the word ‘snake’, and the scene where she asks God to send her Siddha to save her.

The actors who play Siddharth’s friends, Anjali Nair who plays the sister-in-law, the actor who plays the villain, the female police officer who play other roles all add strength to the story.

Cinematographer Balaji Subramaniam, who has shot Palani with its aesthetics, has made the stars crawl as characters in the story and has conveyed their emotions to the audience in a very elegant way.

Music composer Dibu Ninan Thomas’s songs are all melodious and suit the storyline. Vishal Chandrasekhar’s background music travels well without distorting the tension of the screenplay. The fact that the composer has traveled to many places understanding that silence is strength has given the film additional strength.

While films about father-daughter affection are being released more and more, director S.U.Arunkumar has directed this film with a sensational yet heart-wrenching screenplay and visuals combining sexual crimes against children and its background in a story centered on the relationship between father and daughter.

The plot, the choice of characters and the way they acted have added great strength to the film and the screenplay travels very strongly in a way that does not get boring at any place. Moreover, all the scenes that the police inspector normally passes by for 24 hours are shocking.

Although director S.U.Arunkumar has succeeded in giving the story that he has taken as a realistic life rather than a cinematic one, and has told it vividly and close to the hearts of the fans, at some places, “Is this necessary?” He has raised the question in the minds of the fans.

All in all, this ‘Siddha ‘ is a must watch film for everyone.
