There is none other than just Parthivan that you see in the Ostha Seruppu size 7. You listen to the rest of the characters (police, wife, psychologists), of course. Parthiban plays the role of Masilmani and it is fantastic how he is able to grab the attention of the audience for 105 minutes. Apart from acting, Parthiban has also directed, produced and written the film.
The success of Ortha Seruppu Size 7 depends on how you understand the hidden layers of this murder mystery. The film begins with an interrogation of Masilamani, who is trapped in a desperate situation. Initially, you do not know who this man is and why he is in the police station. But you know that his son has a rare disease and is waiting to see his father outside.
By the end, Parthiban stopped Masilmani’s real personality from us and that intrigue. Questions like – what does this guy really want? What if he doesn’t get it now? – Running in your mind in a parallel way.
Parthiban and his films are hard to judge. So is the case with Oththa Seruppu Size 7 and Masilamani. You know that this character has some baggage, which is under his control, subconsciously, and is struggling to cope with the situation.
I like how Parthiban has created Masilmani’s character arc. He has a strong justification for his actions. Perhaps, in real life, we don’t have a strong justification for everything, but especially, in films like these, you always need one. And the result is better when it is clear and unambiguous.
With Oththa Seruppu Size 7, you forget the fact that you are watching a movie. It acts more like watching a character in a theater drama. The more you know Masilamani, the more you connect with it. And it happens magically.
Parthiban is completely transformed into Othetha Seruppu Size 7. Masilamani. For any single act, you need to connect truthfully and emotionally to what you are doing. At the same time, the audience should not see any of it and that is what makes this trip distinctive. Masilmani is real and flawed. You know this is neither a cliché nor a caricature.
Parthiban plays an intense role, speaking pages of dialogues and expressing a heap of emotions. For the actor-director, who has lived for over two decades, each film is an experiment. Some of them have worked while many of them have failed like Koditta Idangalai Neerappuga. But it is good how he wants to strengthen himself by experimenting with novel ideas.
For all of the film’s silence, Ostha Seruppu is absorbing a size 7; Although you may be unsure of Parthiban’s intentions as a filmmaker. Masimilani is almost like this lonely sailor caught in a storm with no one to listen to. Everyone hears the same voice, but some characters have a different image and some are interesting. (Also, you have to give it to the voices that really define the characters.)
As a director, Parthiban is extra creative for setting the story and scenes. Obviously, there are limitations when a film is made with a single character, shot in a room-type set-up. But those hurdles don’t really matter, because you understand someone’s vision and want to stand by them.
Ortha Seruppu Size 7 is a film of its kind inspired by the complexities of human relationships, emotions and moral questions. A lot of the story unfolds through sheer drama. Since the majority of the film is shot in a small room, the ambient sound enhances the mood. Part of the credit goes behind C Satya’s background score, cameraman Ramji and the stunning technical work of sound designer Resul Pookutty. First-person point of view and unusual camera angles are the major strengths of Oththa Seruppu Size 7.
