The film ‘Thean’ based on the story of the tears of the hill people has been selected for the Sankardas Swamy Award of the Government of Pondicherry.
The Puducherry Government holds an annual film festival. Similarly, the decision to hold this year’s film festival and the selection committee met in the assembly today to discuss.
The name of the film directed by Tamil film director is Ganesh Vinayak . “Thean” movie is based on the story of the tears of the hill people. The film realistically illustrates the plight of the hill people, their plight as they come to the city in search of a livelihood, and their tearful story.
The film has been nominated for the Pondicherry Government’s Sankardas Swamy Award. Chief Minister Rangasamy will present an award in the name of Sankardas Swamy and a cash prize of one lakh rupees to director Ganesh Vinayagar at a film festival in Pondicherry on the 24th.
Ganesh Vinayagan’s Thean Kurinji opens with some beautiful aerial views of the hills, establishing the background in which his main characters reside. The lives of a few people in the jungle and their work, including the protagonist Velu (Tarun), are introduced in a few minutes in the film – he earns his living through beekeeping. Provides honey based home remedies for those in need.
Poongodi (Aparnathy), another resident of the pack, is treated by her father Velu, falls in love with him, and the couple gradually decides to live together against the warning of the village head and others in the hills. After a few years of marital bliss, including the birth of a baby girl, the couple gets the shock of their lives when they are diagnosed with a rare disease of the flower following abdominal pain.
The situation worsens when Velu Poongodi is taken to a government hospital in the city. Velu, who does not know about the procedures to be done in a hospital, who does not have proper documentation to prove his citizenship and rights, struggles to get treatment for his wife. Can he save his wife?
Tarun and Aparnathy express the necessary emotions – the former succeeds in expressing his influence through his expression and body language. The plight of an illiterate man who has no evidence to prove his citizenship in a democratic country and the various irregularities in obtaining various identity cards are portrayed in a shocking and realistic manner. Apart from the male and female characters, there are not many main characters in the film, except for Bawa Lakshmanan, who makes his presence felt in all the scenes in which he appears. His humorous and difficult conversations about how the government recognizes its citizens are adequately engaged. Thanks to the overuse of melodrama, although only working on a few scenes, the film incorporates some real-life incidents to spice up the emotional feeling. As the story progresses a few characters disappear surprisingly, which affects the overall impact of the plot.
