Arphudam is produced by R.B.Choudary and it
has all the traits of his productions - a new director, fresh actors and a new
music director , but a strong screenplay to act as the back bone!
Ashok (Lawrence) is a spendthrift and an
irresponsible young man. He neglects the business set up for him by his father (#$#Pyramid#$#
Natarajan). He also fibs a lot to get money from the old man.
oblivious to his responsibiity as the eldest son of a middle class household,
Ashok falls in love with Priya (Anu Prabhakar). But,
when he proposes to her, she blasts him with a series of sensible, prosaic
questions. She asks him to prove his capability to
her by working hard in life and show her that he can be a responsible man. Ashok
realises his mistakes and starts working hard.
When he establishes in life and returns to Priya, he discovers that she is
now interested in another young man (Kunal). What
happens to this typical cinematic situation of unrequited love unfolds
Director Arpudhan makes his debut in this film.
His story is predicatable. However, his screenplay and direction are impressive.
Dance master Lawrence made his debut in
#$#Parthale Paravasam#$# as an actor. This is his second movie and he has been given
the lead role. His expressions are sincere and dialogue delivery effective.Anu
Prabhakar#$#s performance is good.
#$#Pyramid#$# Natarajan plays the role of the
doting, disappointed and later proud father of the hero. His performance is
splendid. Livingston#$#s character is another plus
point to the film. The role he plays is that of a man always in love, but never
seriously. In the few scenes he is present he steals the show completely.
