96 The Movie Review
There is a lot to fall in love with 96, a regretful longing romantic film about a past love life, like the National Award-winning “Autograph” and “Premam”. But what 96 written and directed by C.Prem Kumar falls apart from the other movies like 96 is that it gives a massive importance to the female and that’s what it makes a more honest story.
96 The Movie Story
Ramachandran (Vijay Sethupathi) is a travel photographer who comes back to his hometown. A chance visit to his native, Tanjore, triggers a flood of memories for him the places that have defined his childhood, like the bus stand where his parents landed at after their wedding, the hospital where he was born and brought up, the place that was the shops and malls in his town in the time of 96, and most importantly the school where he met the love of his life, Janaki Devi (Trisha). He is smitten by the smell of Tanjore soil, his school building, and the old watchman (Janakaraj). Obliging the request of the watchman, Ram calls his school friend (Bagavathi Perumal) who adds him to the WhatsApp group of their schoolmates.
After a few months later, all the ’96 group students meet in Chennai for a reunion where Ram gets to meet his childhood love Janaki Devi aka Janu (Trisha). Ram walks down the memory lane and spends an entire night with Janaki, talking about their past and the problems that they went through in life. And Janu told him, she is settled down in Singapore after her marriage. And after that, the film progresses is slower and interesting.
Director: C. Prem Kumar Producer: Nandagopal Writer: C. Prem Kumar Music Director: Govind Menon Cinematographer: Mahendiran Jeyaraju, N. Shanmuga Sundaram Editor: R. Govindaraj Production Company: Madras Enterprises
As a first-time writer-director, “Prem Kumar” just nailed in both the department. He had definitely written by a well-detailed script so it is executed so beautifully. He not only shot well also able to engage the audience from the first frame to the last. The cinematography is very cool from both of the cinematographers and edited by Govindraj will make you more engaged in the offbeat rom-com.
96 The Movie Cast
Vijay Sethupathi – Ram

Vijay Sethupathi is the soul of ‘96 The Movie. Vijay in the role of Ram adds another inspired performance to his extraordinary in his resume. His every expression will hijack you and you will demand more from him in every shot of him. If you are missing Jessie from Vinnaithandhi Varuvaya you must watch 96 because Trisha has delivered an outstanding performance and makes you believe in her matured role, and she will make Janu more real and lovable.
