Cast & Crew Analysis:
VIkram played the male lead, he almost lived as a mentally affected man with 5 years old mindset. If everything goes on well, one more National Award is waiting for Vikram. For a change, glamours Anuskha played the role of a lawyer and she acted well too. Child artist Sara played an important character in this movie and acted very well, in many scenes she gave very tough competition to Vikram. Santhanam took care of the comdey gave us some comical relief in the second half. Other actors like Nazar, M.S Baskar, Amala Paul etc., did their part well.
G.V Prakash provided apt music and back ground score for this movie, he simply rocked. The man behind the lens, Nirav Shah did an excellent work and made the movie look so lovely. Editor Antony should have trimmed few scenes in the first half, so that it wouldn’t look like mega serial in the first half. This is director Vijay’s 4th Movie. He has the talent to direct a class cum commercial movie. Expecting more these kind of quality movies from Director Vijay.
As I mentioned early, First half was too slow and it looked like mega serial. But the second half was terrific. The climax court scene will always remain in our heart forever.
For the people who have already seen the original version I Am Sam, kindly forget that movie and see DTM as a fresh tamil movie, only then you will enjoy the movie. Please don’t compare DTM with I am Sam.
Over all DTM is a movie which can be seen with entire family members and enjoy the feel of the movie. AS usual, masala movie lovers kindly stay away from this movie. This is not another Dhool or Saamy..DTM is gonna rule the A center Box-Office. But the success in other centers purely depend on , how the people treat this meaningful movie.
My Verdict: Super Hit
Expected No of Days Of Successful Run: 75 Days
