Bramman is a 2014 Tamil film directed by Socrates,[1] starring M. Sasikumar and Lavanya Tripathi in the lead roles.[2] It has cinematography by Jomon T. John.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Lavanya Tripathi played the female lead.[3] She said "Santhanam is also part of the cast; so it won’t be a serious film like the previous Sasikumar starrers".[4] Soori was also part of the cast, who was earlier wrongly reported to have replaced Santhanam in the film.[5] It was reported that Yuvan Shankar Raja would compose the music,[1][6][7] but Devi Sri Prasad was signed as the music director. Naveen Chandra stated that he played the second lead as the friend of Sasikumar in the film.[8]

The shooting happened mostly in Coimbatore.[2][5] It also took place at Bharathiar University in April 2013.[1] In October, the team consisting of director Socrates, M. Sasikumar, Lavanya, choreographer Raju Sundaram along with a 40-member crew flew to Venice and other parts of Italy and Switzerland to shoot a couple of songs, which is a first time for a Sasikumar film to be shot outside India.[9] Padmapriya danced for an hot item song in the film.[10]

Critical reception[edit]

Baradwaj Rangan wrote, "With someone else at its centre, we might have said that Bramman is just about watchable, but with Sasikumar, we begin to wonder if Subramaniyapuram was a one-off".[11] Behindwoods gave the film 2 stars out of 5 and wrote: "Bramman turns out to be a good tale by Socrates, that might have lacked a little vigour in the screenplay".[12] Sify called Bramman a "passable commercial entertainer with all essential ingredients that will keep the pot boiling".[13]
