Movie Sarvam Thaalamayam
The band of talented musician which will bring great music to your ears.

Sarvam Thaalamayam means the 'omnipresence of music', and the musical drama does not go against this title. Should music is a part that cannot be absent in your life, the movie is for you. Sarvam Thaalamayam delivers a notion behind all the beautiful songs and satisfying acting: Music is for everyone regardless of their skin or religion. Music has no boundaries, which can bring peace and relief to your daily life.

AR Rahman’s music pieces steal the spotlight. It is thought to be his best performance after quite a long time. All of the songs are beautifully composed, written and sung. To fit the movie's theme, music cannot be too modern or trendy but going back to the basics, yet Rahman deals well with the situation, revealing the most brilliant art that shouldn't be missed out.

Regarding acting, G.V. Prakash's on-screen performance is worth high compliments. He plays the role of Peter Joseph, whose father and ancestors have a tradition of making mridangams (a musical instrument). Regretfully, despite their thorough understanding of instruments, notes and beats, they don't indulge in performing it to the public, which is a typical scenario in society at that time. And Prakash will be the one who breaks the rule.

Peter runs into Palakaad Vembu Iyer (Nedumudi Venu), a respected and accomplished percussionist. Vembu is quite an antiquated musician who only connects music to formal concerts, not television or money. He is so conservative that he barely achieve anything in life. However, things change from the moment he met Peter, forming the best teacher-student relationship you have ever seen at the cinema.

One of Vembu's friend named Mani (Vineeth) plays a grey character in the film. He holds strong jealousy of Peter's natural talent with percussions, always tries to prevent it from growing. But despite all of those immoral attempts, Peter, in contrast, develops more and more. He has a chance to explore music further, learn it more thoroughly, and finally achieve success. With these obstacles, the movie vividly depicts how religion affects music, for example, which religion can practice what kind of music. Generally, the route of music exploration is intriguing, striking a chord with the audience and all thanks to director Rajiv Menon's genuine efforts.

And apparently, nothing is perfect and the same course applies with Sarvam Thaalamayam. The plot is reviewed quite predictable without many climaxes. Movie watchers can easily predict what next is going to happen. Besides, Peter's love story with a nurse is so poorly described that it hardly leaves an impression on the audience.

However, the movie's remarkable points can totally compensate for those insignificant ones. Prakash's experienced performance, together with AR Rahman's moving songs trigger most of your inner emotions. The meaningful message Sarvam Thaalamayam conveys also keeps you constantly stuck to the movie screen. Especially the last scene where Prakash's final match with opponent occurs is such a pleasure to your ears, mind and soul that most audiences share the feeling of regret at the film's ending.

All in all, Sarvam Thaalamayam is highly evaluated as a must-watch movie, not only musicians or ones whose jobs connected to music. It proves that you can find music anywhere and anytime if you change your perception just a little.  And you can obtain them through music, the masterpiece created beautify human's life. Do not hesitate even if you are blind in music, just come and enjoy it.
