Mamooty Delivers A Masterclass In Ram's Poetic Take On Unconditional Love!

I am not sure if this was Ram's intention. But there is every possibility that his Peranbu could make you a better person and look at life a little differently. It establishes the supremacy of love without romanticizing it. Because love in its purest form cannot be romanticized. You can add no value...(more)

Mammootty is excellent in path-breaking film by Ram

Peranbu is not a full-on serious film. It also has black comedy here and there to make you laugh. Baby Sadhna as a spastic child is brilliant and it is safe to say that she lives her role. Anjali Ameer and Anjali deliver memorable performances in the film.(more)

It has the power to change the way you look at life

Peranbu has been made relentlessly by Ram. He has not made any commercial compromises and hence it has a docu-feel about it and takes its own time to unfold.

Too good in many parts that there is a temptation to forgive its slowness!

The film touches a lot of sensitive issues but at no place, would you think of it as being vulgar or inappropriate. Ram is easily one of the finest filmmakers that Tamil cinema has ever produced and the maturity he has shown in this film only proves that point. The dialogues, in particular, were bri...(more)
