It is really interesting as to what made writer-director Suresh Kamatchi come up with the one-liner for Miga Miga Avasaram, as it makes us ponder over the concept first before actually even trying to connect with the protagonist. As weird but true as it may seem, Miga Miga Avasaram focuses on the protagonist (a working single mother), who tries her best to find an opportunity to answer nature’s call. The entire film is bent on whether she gets a window to do that, or not.
Suresh Kamatchi builds up his narration by putting his hero(ine) in a tight spot even before she finds herself in the actual conflict of the film, by packing the world of the film with different characters that come off with both positive and negative impacts to the lead.
The film does get a little awkward at times as one does feel it is talking about a very minute yet delicate topic, but it is evident that some of Suresh Kamatchi’s ideas do work out well.
Sri Priya makes a very good debut with the film, adopting to the emotional value very well. There are a lot of characters who come and go, but the best ones who stand in our mind are the corrupted cop and the heroine’s kid. Technically, the film is functional, having a decent stand in all departments.
Miga Miga Avasaram is a stretched version of the socially charged short films that we see between films that we watch in theaters. The film has a small idea, and adheres to it quite well.
Verdict: A peculiar attempt in the social drama space.
