Papanasam 2015

Papanasam is a 2015 Indian Tamil thriller film directed by Jeethu Joseph and jointly produced by Suresh Balaje and Rajkumar Sethupathi. It is a remake of director’s 2013 Malayalam film Drishyam, featuring Kamal Haasan and Gautami Tadimalla reprising the respective roles played by Mohanlal, Meena in the original.

The film tells the story of Suyambulingam, a middle-class cable TV operator, and his family. They come under suspicion when Varun, the son of the Inspector-general of police (IG), goes missing soon after harassing Suyambu’s daughter. The rest of the film reveals how Varun disappeared and what Suyambulingam does to keep his family from going to prison.

The production work of Papanasam was undertaken by Suresh Balaje and George Pious. Music for the film was composed by Ghibran. The cinematography was led by Sujith Vasudev and the editing by Ayoob Khan. Principal photography commenced on 25 August 2014 and lasted three months. It was shot primarily in Kerala, similar to the original, and also filmed at Nanguneri and Tenkasi. Papanasam released on 3 July 2015 to positive reviews from critics.

papanasam 2015


Suyambulingam is a honest and hard working cable operator who along with his assistant Sermadurai (Sree Raam) watches movies through the TV every night and returns home in the morning. He is living happily with his wife Rani (Gautami Tadimalla) and two daughters Selvi (Niveda Thomas) and Pullimeena alias Meena (Esther Anil) in a small town named Papanasam in Tirunelveli District, Southern Tamil Nadu. He is a guy who dropped out in 4th grade but gets knowledge from “cinema” as he is a cinema fanatic. His elder daughter Selvi goes for a nature club where they take them to a camp where Varun, the spoiled son of IG Geetha Prabhakar records a video of Selvi changing her clothes. When he threatens her with the video, she ends up killing him.

When Suyambulingam learns of this accident, he tells his whole family to check everything at the scene of the crime. There Selvi finds Varun’s car keys, his phone, and sim card. The very same day Suyambulingam takes the car and drives it to Tenkasi where he puts the sim card with another phone and throws it into a lorry. Then he dumps the car into a huge pond.

Suyambulingam tells his whole family that they are going to attend a prayer and spend the next two days in Tenkasi one day in the meditation the other day watching a film. Then suddenly someone finds Varun’s car, and Geetha is shocked. She tells the Papanasam police to first deal with it. One police constable Perumal (Kalabhavan Mani) who is the nemesis of Suyambulingam tries to prove that Suyambulingam had driven the vehicle but there is no evidence for that. When the police headed by IG Geetha Prabhakar (Asha Sarath) question the family Suyambulingam tells them to say that Varun never came to their house and that they were in Tenkasi. The police don’t really believe Perumal because Perumal and Suyamblingam have a conflict between each other and upon insistence by Perumal, Geetha asks them to come in person.

There the whole family led by Suyambulingam tell them what they did, which is cleverly manipulated by Suyambulingam, on that day and the police are shocked. Then they ask the people they met and still they say the same thing. Then Geetha understands and finds out that on August 2 and 3 Suyambulingam went alone to Tenkasi and stole bills to claim that they were there, even though the family actually went on the 4 and 5 August. For the hotel bill proof, he signed in August 2 and put a fake name on the 4th.

With Geetha fed up, they arrest the whole family and take them to their headquarters. After initial torture, she commands Perumal to attack the family, where some bones of Suyambulingam are broken. Then Varun’s friend Alex is summoned and he reveals the incident about the video. After realising that whatever they do is futile, they separate the family from Meena to get the truth out of her. Later she is almost killed by Perumal and out of fear she confesses and tells everything to them. She takes the police to the place where they buried Varun.

At the presumed place, while many people were watching and fighting with the police, they dig up only to find a dead cow. While all the police personnel were shocked, Suyambulingam rushes to the journalists present and explain to them the brutalities done by the police to him and his family. Perumal, who is enraged on being humiliated, rushes to attack him but is chased by the angry mob. The case attracts media attention and Court ends up in the verdict that Suyambulingam and his family are not guilty and will receive high protection.

The aftermath of the incident was a nightmare to all those police officers who were involved in the case. Perumal was suspended with immediate effects. SI Suresh Babu was transferred and IG Geetha Prabhakar was asked to go on leave by the Government. Few days later Geetha Prabhakar resigns her profession. She along with her husband send policemen to Suyambulingam’s house. They inform him that she wanted to meet him. The police take Suyambulingam to the pond to meet Varun’s parents and upon their questions regarding their son’s return, Suyambulingam indirectly tells them what happened and diplomatically tells them that Varun is dead. He also confesses that it was an accident. Dejected IG and her husband migrate to America with a heavy heart. As the movie returns to the present and when Suyambulingam goes to the newly build police station to sign, the new SI warns him that when the police finds Varun’s body they will be arrested. However they will never find the body, because it is buried underneath the new Papanasam police station.
