Full movie description "Sindhu Bhairavi":The plot of the film revolves around the three lead characters J. K. Balaganapathi (JKB), Sindhamani aka Sindhu and Bhairavi. A Carnatic singer (JKB) at the peak of his career loses his credibility as he gets addicted to alcohol due to the loss of an intimate companion (Sindhu). Bhairavi (JKB's wife) tries to help him get rid of the addiction and fails. As a last resort she requests Sindhu's help and succeeds. The status of relationship between the three after his makeover is the climax of the film.
Reviews of the Sindhu BhairaviAt the outset, let me confess that I am a bit partial to this movie. It has all the over-the-top melodrama of Balachander. You see, he has this tremendous need in him to stamp his seal all over his movies. That is his trademark and it has become accepted in Tamil film industry, even though it may appear ridiculous to many. This movie is no exception in that regard. But the story behind it, the performances and the direction are absolutely heart rending.
Sivakumar plays the role of a famous classical singer who is in an unhappy marriage to a woman named Bhairavi who has no skill in music whatsoever, and who doesn't have children (played sweetly by Sulakshana). He encounters a music lover, orphan and fan named Sindhu (played by Suhasini, she got the national award for best actress for the movie) in a contrived way typical of Balachander. She has strong feelings that South Indian classical music is not sung primarily in the South Indian language Tamil (mother tongue of all the main characters in movie and the language spoken in the state where all the main characters reside). This has made it inaccessible to the general Tamil public in the state. (As an aside, this is a truth and such an elitism has pervaded south indian classical music for the better part of last century.) Their views clash and an intellectual friendship begins which ends in an affair and Sindhu becoming pregnant. Unwilling to destroy the singer's family, Sindhu disappears from the scene. From here on, the singer degenerates and becomes an alcoholic. This is a HUGE no-no in indian classical music circles, known for its supposed piety and supposed cultural savvy. Everything goes downhill and only Sindhu can fix it. But no one knows where she is. Sindhu also has a story of her own regarding her origins. Balachander has wonderfully exposed the hypocrisy in the elitist societies in South India. (The period is grossly misplaced though. Such hypocrisy was common when Balachander himself was in his young age, not during the time he has set the movie in!) The climax resolves all the issues through another contrived, politically-correct ending that is vintage Balachander. The only problem I have with the movie is the song sequence when Sivakumar is drunk. It was totally unnecessary!
Unfortunately Sivakumar, who gave as good a performance as Suhasini did not win the best actor award. (He was later denied yet again for one of the best acting performances I have ever witnessed in Marupakkam. We won't get into the award politics in India.) The reason I'm biased towards this movie is because I am a classical singer myself. The music in the movie is absolutely superb. Ilayaraja is a genius and he proves himself yet again. He got a national award along with Chitra the playback singer for Suhasini. Just as Sivakumar didn't win an award, his playback singer Yesudas was also robbed of a thoroughly well deserved award for best playback singing.
