Jyothika already had a OTT release Ponmagal Vandhal amid the lockdown, though it botched to live up to the high expectations. The yesteryear actress has another OTT release 36 Vayasulo. It’s actually not a new film. It’s a dubbed version of Jyothika’s comeback film 36 Vayadhinile (2015) directed by Rosshan Andrrews and produced by Suriya.
The film’s story revolves around a married woman who has set aside her dreams for the sake of her husband and daughter rediscovers her true self and becomes an achiever. In many ways, the film has shades of Sridevi’s super hit English Vinglish.
36 Vayasulo is a feel-good entertainer talk about empowerment, especially of middle-aged women. Once a rebel during her college days, Jyothika becomes an introvert after her marriage with Rahman. One call from President Of India brings big change in her life.
Jyothika simply lived in the character. Rahman is okay as her husband. Abhirami makes an impact in a cameo. Other artists played their parts.
The film has some emotive scenes, though narration is tad slow. Family audience, especially women will love this one.
36 Vayasulo is now streaming on Aha.
