Producer: S. Rajambal, S. Subhadradevi, and S. Subramani
Karmegham is an out and out Mammootty film, which is set in a village backdrop. It is an old style tearjerker that lacks any freshness either by way of incidents or narration. Sill director S.P.Rajkumar has tried his best to make it watchable.
Karmegham (Mammootty) returns to his village after serving in the army for long. But to his surprise he finds that the villagers still live the shackles of old customs and traditions. They work as slaves to a feudal landlord (Radha Ravi) who exploits them. Later through his mother (Manorama), Karmegham comes to know that Radha Ravi is his father and then it becomes a father-son conflict. Karmegham stands with the villagers and oppose his father and brother Shakthi. In a bloody climax the son kills the father and the brother dies in a police encounter. The film has nothing new to offer and is as old as the hills of Pollachi. The story is told in a flashback when Karmegham returns from jail after being sentenced. Abhirami is his love interest and she has nothing much to do.
Mammootty is there in every frame of the film and the role is tailor made for him. Abhirami is wasted and Manorama is ok. Radha Ravi as the villain father does his usual routine hamming. Vidayasagar has recycled his Dhill numbers. Since the film was made on a low budget, the sets and song sequences look tacky.
