Cast: T Siva, Sarath Kumar, Balaji Sakthivel, Kashmira Pardeshi, and Amitash Pradhan

Storyline: After attempting idol smuggling, a disturbed young guy and an experienced police officer deal with the fallout.

Duration: 147 minutes


During a theft, Aadhi, who is in dire need of money to rescue his sister, meets Mythreyan, a conceited police officer. They both participate in an idol swap, which ultimately causes confusion and mayhem.


In Aravind Raj’s Paramporul, Sarath Kumar makes a surprise return to the police after Por Thozhil. This time, in contrast to his often sincere and sensitive parts, he plays a haughty commander motivated by avarice. This original viewpoint draws the viewer in and keeps them interested in the movie. Although Paramporul gets off to a rather awkward start, the second part neatly ties up all the loose ends, providing for an engaging viewing experience in general.

Early on in the movie, we are thrown into an underground idol trade. Meet Mythreyan (Sarath Kumar), a police officer with a one goal in life: to amass fortune and live a peaceful retirement. However, his relentless goal not only shatters his marriage but also leads him to fall for this idol exchange scam. By a strange turn of events, he meets Aadhi (Amitash Pradhan), a young man involved in the trade because of his previous relationship with an art gallery owner who has links to influential people in the industry and seizes control over him.

Aadhi chooses to work with Mythreyan in the illicit trade in order to obtain money since he is in dire need of it to treat his ailing sister. He assists him in the sale of a Buddha statue that is thought to be an old relic. But it’s not as simple as people believe. Will they both be able to complete their missions, or will this simply uncover a more significant truth that has been hidden for years?

Even though idol trade has become a common motif in Tamil films, Paramporul stands out for having strong writing that keeps the story interesting for the bulk of the film. Rather of just including gang wars and murders, the director explores the complexities of the industry and its inherent risks.

Although Sarathkumar’s portrayal of a gray shade officer is refreshing, the way the character finishes isn’t particularly believable. The author has the opportunity to give Mythreyan even more strength, particularly at the end. In terms of performances, Sarathkumar and Amitash have both had excellent performances. Both Amitash’s love interest and Kashmira, who portrays a sculpture, have done a respectable job. There are a few enjoyable parts in the second half with Sarathkumar, Amitash, and Balaji Shakthivel. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s background soundtrack is appropriate and elevated a few key scenes.

Naturally, Paramporul is a fascinating look into the realm of illegal trading that provides spectators with a singular experience. The movie might have been much better with a little more work.
