Cheran’s Journey: A Missed Opportunity in Tamil Web Series

Published on

Tamil filmmaker Cheran, a multiple National Films Award winner renowned for classics like Autograph, has ventured into the digital realm with his latest release, the Tamil web series “Cheran’s Journey,” premiering on SonyLIV last Friday.

This eight-part Tamil Original Series follows a predictable narrative, centering around five job aspirants vying for a single offer letter. Despite a strong cast, the series falls short of delivering anything groundbreaking.

Ashok, in search of the best candidate for his automobile company, faces the dilemma of choosing between Ameer Sultan, Divya Bharathi, Raghav, Nitesh, and Pranav, each with a distinct background and emotional backstory. While all candidates are capable and ambitious, the predictability of the storyline detracts from the overall impact.

Despite potential in the social themes presented by the five key characters, the series fails to explore them effectively. The narrative’s predictability and lack of impactful dialogues contribute to an overall sense of haste in storytelling.

The series finds strength in its casting, with notable performances from actors like Sarath Kumar and Kalaiyarasan. However, the potential of the series is marred by its half-baked execution, with Kalaiyarasan’s act being a standout amidst the shortcomings.

In the attempt to address relevant social issues, Cheran falls short, as the series feels rushed and lacks the depth required to make a lasting impact. The story, predictably preachy, ultimately makes “Cheran’s Journey” a less-than-thrilling watch.

In conclusion, it is advisable to skip this series, as it fails to live up to the expectations set by Cheran’s previous works. While commendable for addressing social issues, the execution leaves much to be desired, earning it a verdict of 2.5 stars out of 5.
