It’s an unwritten theory, but a very strongly proven fact that ‘Films possessing “Locations” as the major characterizations. Moreover, we have seen more films, where locations tell us stories and they travel with us constantly throughout the movie. Especially, when it’s a nature bounded backdrops, especially like “Forest”, it definitely has a perpetual significance, where we feel like commuted to a different world for the next couple of hours and more indeed. With Arya-Catherine Tresa starrer ‘Kadamban’ hitting screens this Friday (April 14), which is predominantly shot inside forest, we bring similar instances with the erstwhile movies of similar pattern.


We aren’t pretty sure about how the film worked in box office and that’s not a part of this analysis, but Maniratnam and cinematographer Santhosh Sivan offered a much intense scope for us to be commuted into the thick forests, where we found ourselves drenched in the moistening wetness of rivers and waterfalls. Throughout the film, it was almost like a trip into the forest.


Although, the film wasn’t completely about saving the forest life or Mother Nature, it had more prominence for the way of forest life. There were sequences, where Jayam Ravi would instruct the girls to keep a note of breaking the lean branches to mark the route of journey. SP Jananathan had offered a very much importance to such aspects of forest life.


The film directed by Prabhu Solomon focalized upon the story of forest villagers trying to save the harvest and dwellers from the dreaded elephant. It was a very well written story, where the complete forest life of flora and fauna was captured in a much spectacular manner.


This film might have not turned the spotlight upon its impact, but gained good reviews for a nitty-gritty script and good narration. The film directed by Stalin Ramalingam starred Viddarth, Samskruthy Shenoy and Samuthirakani in lead roles. The film was highly appreciated for the nuance performance of actors, especially Samuthirakani, where his role was adhered to the forest crisis.

The film happens to be a fantasy-adventure drama that traverses through a group of people embarking on a journey towards the hidden land of Chola Dynasty. But the major portions had them commuting through the forest lands that takes them through unexpected twists and turns.
