Aalayam Review by Navinn Rajendran

I love the whole idea of God but I don’t indulge in it. Having to believe everything has a reason, the whole idea of religion too has its reason. But it takes a lot of guts to execute a short film based on such believes and thought. This short movie taught me to have a lot of patience. I had to watch it 4 times just to understand what it’s all about. God watching over her children in her home. Some behave properly, some don’t. Having claimed to be a public service announcement, to me it wasn’t. It was not impactful enough to bring a change. The casts were not clear until the credits came up. It could have been executed better I feel. To look at the concept in a different angle. As I sat and reflected back on Aalayam, it only reminded me of a particular quote. In a temple, the begger begs outside and the rich begs inside. I respect temples as a religious institution, but I feel better issues could be addressed to bring about change. The god itself will agree. It’s a clear cut failed attempt by Sanjeev Kumar, but it’s the idea failed and not your passion and determination. Looking forward for your next short movie.
