Peter Johnson (GV Prakash), a percussionist is the son of Johnson who makes Mridangam and Tabla. One day, his fascinated by Mridangam and wants to learn it from the best on the business Vembu Iyer (Nedumudi Venu). But, he refuses to teach him because of his background and finally learns about his talent and coaches him. One day, Peter gets humiliated and jeopardises his relationship with his guru. His life takes a U-turn from then on. Will Peter redeem himself and prove his innocence? Will he succeed in proving himself as a Mridangam Vidwan? These questions are answered in the second half in the most intriguing manner.
GV Prakash has been proving that he’s here to stay and has been improving and honing his skills. He fits the role of Peter Johnson like a glove. Nedumudi Venu shinesas the mridangam vidwan. Vineeth Srinivasan after a long time in Kollywood. His role as Mani, who actively practices casteism and discrimination has delivered a neat performance. Aparna Balamurali and Dhivyadharshini have done their parts neatly. Their roles are limited but they have managed to make an impact. Cinematographer Rajiv Menon has his own template and it doesn’t follow the typical commercial cinema template. Sarvam Thaala Mayam is also similar and it takes its own time to get into the story. In the recent past, AR Rahman’s form has been questionable. With Sarvam Thaala Mayam, he has hit it night with brilliant background score.
Verdict : Musical Film
