Taramani is a Tamil comedy-drama staring Andrea Jeremiah who plays titular role in the film. Taramani is an extremely new take on adulteration and relationships in Tamil cinema. Genre of the film is experimental or might audience add a successful experiment. Taramani explores women related taboo in middle class Indian mentality in a quirky way through the eyes of characters. Film is completely character based and acts very little according to the plot.
Each and every character in the film is dealing with his/her own psychoanalysis with their extremists behavior coming out when put to test. Film truly adjourns the breaking point of regular people when they come with their biggest fear of conflict metaphorically described as unanswered taboos the young generation of the film is still dealing with.
Story of the film is inclusive of 4 primary characters each of whom are inter-connected. Andrea’s character is dealing with her own demons when she is introduced to a guy who loves her but largely desires passion. It becomes difficult for Andrea to say yes or no to her and hence she finds her herself in a conflict to stay or abandon him. Screenplay of Ram is truly bold and makes a point while being uncompromisingly canny with the actions of characters.
Screenplay has a lot of honesty in it and dialogues could not be more realistic. Ram as a director is in complete control of the film as it is his baby. From the inception of the film to final edit, all dependent on Ram and he managed to escape his way through it. Ram’s storytelling really hides itself behind the characters and simply speaks through them in their voice. Taramani is a must watch for younger generation.
