Jannal Oram - Enthralling journey of whodunit

All of us may have used the bus service and bought a ticket from the conductor. But not many of us stop to think how it would have been for the first time. 'Jannal Oram' is a journey from the very beginning, to an interesting destination on a thrilling ride. Karu Pazhaniappan has brought 'Ordinary' from God's own country, added Tamil flavours to it and served it in an interesting tale by the window, on a two-hour journey, 'Jannal Oram'.

Subbaiah dreams of becoming the Chief Minister one day, and is introduced to reality on his first day as a bus conductor with the Tamil Nadu transport. He takes charge as conductor of the sole bus service between Palani and Pannaikadu. Subbaiah is introduced to the gregarious Karuppu, the driver who he has to travel with. The two set out from Palani, picking up passengers on the way and ferrying them to Pannaikadu, where they stay over night and make the return trip the following day. In their journey, they befriend the inhabitants of Pannaikadu, and the two are treated very much as people of their own village. Rajesh as Vinayagam, fondly called Anna Sir, Ramana as Justin, Vidharth as Saami, Poorna as Nirmala David and Manisha Yadav as Kalyani play roles key to the story.

After the sad demise of her father, Nirmala David is adopted by the school teacher Anna Sir (Vinayagam), who later decides to get her married to his own son Shiva, who works in Surat. While Nirmala the teacher, waits for Shiva's return so that they tie the knot into happy wedded life, Justin evinces interest to marry the same girl. Justin is an ambitious and angry young man, who gets dejected by the failure, but chooses not to do anything about it. Karuppu is the flirtatious kind, but unoffensive and a simpleton at heart. Despite shouldering tough family responsibilities, he does not let it show on his face. Subbaiah meets Kalyani in the bus and immediately develops liking to her. The two eventually fall in love after crossing a thick sheet of coy resistance. Saami is a familiar face in the village and a helping hand to all. Robust and physically strong, he is called in for assistance on almost all regards. After his father committed suicide, Saami had taken over the responsibility left behind by his dad, as the dam operator. The whole of first half takes time to carefully drive in all this detail and let it settle in our mind, and then the movie gets into the actual story.

With the village festival, as well as Nirmala's wedding date nearing, Shiva decides to surprise his family and friends, turning up a little earlier than the intimated date. It is on the same fateful day that Karuppu gets too drunk to handle the bus in the dark, and Subbaiah takes charge to ferry the vehicle across to Palani, from Pannaikadu. In the dark winding roads, someone suddenly falls in front of the bus, just as Subbaiah pulls it to a halt. But it seems too late, as the man is already injured. Scared by the reversal of roles and the eventual fatal accident, the driver and conductor pass on the unidentified man to a passerby, to get him admitted in the nearest hospital. When it dawns, the two realize it was Anna Sir's son Shiva who had met with the accident, and they rush to find out how he is doing. Surprisingly, there is no news of him being admitted in any hospital nearby. What arrives eventually is the news of Shiva's suicidal death, off a faraway hill. Why wasn't he admitted to the hospital by the stranger? How did Shiva die? Who is the stranger in the dark? Was it an accident or a murder, and why? Answers to all this is what 'Jannal Oram' constitutes of.

Vimal has an appealing screen presence as a conductor new on the job. The first few days when he struggles to get accustomed to the job and the new ambience are portrayed with simplistic originality. Manisha comes around as an unassuming yet smart girl, who feels the responsibility heavy on her shoulders, post the demise of her father. The charm of a little girl does not leave Manisha's face at any point in the story, and it is she who forms a pillar to the sharp turn that the story takes, slowly unfolding all the answers. Poorna is a responsible woman, with relatively minimal screen presence, yet strong role in the film. It is not often that Parthiban takes up a role, and his mere presence is proof of the pudding that the story is nothing like anything we have seen so far. The procedural introduction of characters and the practice to get used to who's who, would have been a drag, but for Parthiban's impromptu presence. As Karuppu, Parthiban has played a rigid supporting character. Vidharth here is a surprise package! As the story unfolds, it may seem predictable, but it is only at the fag end that the picture clears out on a heavy flashback.

With so many movies these days, wrapping up briefly on just a few prominent characters, 'Jannal Oram' is a lot to take in and digest. The film has a solid story, which begins only a little further into the screenplay, as it takes that long for all of the many characters to sync in. However, you may even be familiar with the narrow streets in Pannaikadu and the winding route from Palani by the time the actual story begins. Though it would have been abrupt to start the narrative before giving a clear picture about all characters, it seems rather too elaborate in a time when most movies are short and quick.

Pannaikadu is a beautiful place, and so is the long winding lanes on the mountainous terrains between Palani and the small village. With a major portion of the movie having shot in and around a bus in dangerously high and narrow locations, it takes an expert to bring the feeling to light, and Arbhindu Saara has done justice to the script in every way. 'Jannal Oram' is a story oriented film, with not much importance to the dreamy dance sequences. But Vidhayasagar's music is a welcome relief at places where the story seems to get too heavy on the audience. Breaking the traditional folk theme for song in the village's annual festival, 'Aasa Vecha Manasula' is an interesting change and also a turning point in the story. Editor in the movie also needs special mention, in making the rural concept look as appealing to the urban audience as possible.

'Jannal Oram' is an interesting journey, which turns a thriller in the second half. Stopping by to take note of most of the small emotions and gestures we miss in our everyday rush, the film is an interesting tale of a humble small town. The seat by the window that slides the captivating show of passing images is an interesting spot to sit at and ponder over the small things we fail to take notice of. 'Jannal Oram' is a careful attempt to spotlight these very small things in the life of a humble village. In all, it is a fairly predictable journey with sudden twists and turns on the way and a totally unpredictable destination
