A Neat, Soulful Film From Rajiv Menon That Is High On Music And A Pretty Good Watch !

TM is a fairly engrossing film that has its soul kept intact with the beautiful Guru Sishyan relationship which is easily its USP.(more)

Sarvam Thaala Mayam is both musically and visually entertaining, and shouldn't be missed.

You can't refuse the fact that, with Sarvam Thaala Mayam, Rajiv Menon makes a terrific statement, and it's worth the 18-year penance.(more)

It's not about education. It's about talent, which is beyond class and caste. Some viewers may think of this film as a fairy tale, but it is nice to know that Peter made music happily ever after.(more)



An honest attempt that explores the cultural politics of Carnatic music

I would have loved Sarvam Thaala Mayam more if Rajiv hadn't brought in the reality show-angle in the second half. I felt those portions were forceful and a tad orchestrated.
