June R

After all hurdles, June R has finally made it to the theatres. So is the wait worth it? The answer is a moot point. Debutant director Revathy Verma has tried to flesh out the emotions of a girl longing for a motherly touch. But has ended up giving a movie with many loose-ends.

June R (Jyothika), an orphan, is born on the month of June, and hence that name. She works in an advertising agency. One day she happens to come across a middle-aged woman (Saritha) hurt badly in a road mishap. She admits her in hospital and tells the doctor that it is her mother Rajalakshmi.

Enters Rajalakshmi's son (Biju Menon), who is desperate to go abroad with his wife selling his ancestoral property and deciding to leave his mother in a orphanage.

June R decides to take Rajalakshmi to her house and calls her mom. They develop a strong bonding. Enters her son again with a plea to take his mother back home.

This results in an emotional war between the two. June R comes to know about Rajalakshmi's brother (Ravikumar) and goes to his house to find an amicable solution to the emotional tangle. Meanwhile, Amudha (Kushboo), a noted advocate, is sought out to get legal permission to ensure Rajalakshmi's stay with June.

Though June suceeds in her mission, she returns home to find Rajalakshmi dead. Now comes Raja (Suriya), a rich client to their advertising agency, who had expressed his love to June R. He consoles her and takes her with him.

All in all, it is a convoluted welter of emotions. But Jyothika has given a mature performance and has underplayed her emotions beautifully. So is Saritha playing her mother.

The rest including Biju Menon, Kushboo and Suriya end up playing minuscule roles.

Madhu Ambat is the real saving grace in the film as he has captured the visuals well. His frames speak for themselves. Sarath's music is soothing.
