Director Mohan Kumar’s Acharam narrates the tale of an angry young man with psychotic tendencies.
His life and career are destroyed when the girl he is to wed elopes with her lover, leaving him stranded at the altar.
While most films are sympathetic towards lovers, director Mohan highlights the other side of the story. His focus is on the people who are left behind to face the consequences, and its impact on their lives.
Though an interesting thought, the film ends up becoming too preachy.
Suriya (Ganesh Venkatraman) is a sub inspector who has nothing but contempt for modern young women. He hates mobile addicted, jean-clad modern young women who date.
An honest officer by day, he hunts for modern young women of the by night and shoots them.
He is transferred to Kodaikanal, where he meets Siva (Munna), an architect, and his wife, Ramya (Poonam Kaur), while investigating a theft.
Just one glance at the pretty Ramya and Suriya becomes totally obsessed.
The film then moves off track with a tiresome flashback of Siva and Ramya’s love story.
Meanwhile, Siva begins to suspect Suriya’s intentions and decides to confront him. An infuriated Suriya claims that Ramya is his wife and belongs to him!
