Aruvi – Review

Aruvi (Aditi Balan) is a terrorist. The police starts investigation about her and everyone who gets grilled reveals an interesting detail about her, her nature, her attitude and more.

In the childhood, she is the favourite child of her father. But as she grows old, she is hated by everyone in the family, including her mother and father. As a result, she is thrown out of house.

Aruvi ends up in the company of a transgender who is loaded with compassion and her life changes a lot. She is even declared as terrorist. Is it so? Aruvi will tell you the answer.


Roll out a red carpet to director Arun Prabhu Puroshothaman, who has made a film that will have its impact on us for a long time. It is hard to believe that this is a movie by youngsters who are new to the industry.

For, each and every frame has been well planned and executed, and not even a single character or scene is wasted. And what more? The movie strikes a straight impact with the audience with emotional scenes, black comedy and satires.

Who is Aditi Balan? It would be no exagerration if we would say she is born to do this Aruvi character. She is so natural and acting comes with ease for her. No one would have done more justice to the character.

Everyone in the cast has rendered a power-packed performance. Shelley Calist, the cinematographer, is like another director and lead actor, for the frames tell a separate story without contradicting the actual one.

Bindhu Malini and Vedanth Bharadwaj’s songs written by Kutti Revathi and the director himself are so beautiful and they have been used in the background well. Raymond Derrick Crasta’s editing is another highlight.

Arun Prabhu Purushothaman is a welcome and rare find in Tamil cinema. We have not seen such a striking movie from a newcomer in the recent past. Well, Aramm can be an exception.
