Pokkisham Heroine

படத்தில், சென்னை, கல்கத்தா, நாகூர், காரைக்கால் என்று எல்லா வீடுகளிலும் பயன்படுத்தப்பட்டிருக்கும் காலண்டர்களை நாங்களே உருவாக்கினோம். அதில் பயன்படுத்தப்பட்டிருக்கும் தேதி, கிழமை உள்ளிட்ட எல்லா விபரங்களுமே உண்மையானவை. குறிப்பாக, நாகூர் வீட்டில் இருக்கும் காலண்டரில் இருக்கும் முஸ்லிம் மாதங்கள், ஆண்டுகள் எல்லாமே தீவிர ஆய்வுக்குப் பிறகு 1970-ல் என்ன இருந்ததோ அதையே பயன்படுத்தியிருக்கிறோம். காரைக்கால் கல்லூரியில் திருவள்ளுவர் காலண்டர், கல்கத்தா வீட்டில் துர்கா காலண்டர் என்று எல்லாமே ஒரிஜினலைப் போன்ற விபரங்கள் உடையவையே.

Good review. The film, as a film, is very boring. There are many discrepancies in it. The father of the girl leading jamaath prayer in the house for example. As Nathersa said, no Muslim girl goes to college with white thuppatti. And the choice of subject — Tamil literature – is also not realistic. That the father first accepts their love, consents to their marriage and then suddenly leaves Nagore in order to avoid Lenin is also absurd.

But it is possible for a Muslim girl to fall in love with a non-Muslim boy. We cannot rule out that possibility. One cannot say that such a plot is a plot against Islam. Cheran and co asked many details from me regarding Nagore culture. I was present on the first day of the shooting in Gopichettipalayam hospital, which is shown as Chennai hospital. I even taught Padmapriya how to put on thuppati!

Cheran in the movie looks aged and Padmapriya has acted excellently, apart from the cultural point of view of Nathersa and the thematic confusions in the movie. Especially when she weeps on hearing the death of Lenin.
