As the popular saying goes, Achcham (Fear), Madame (Innocence), Naanam (Fairyness), Payirppu (Chastity) are the four “ideal” qualities that every good Tamil girl should possess. The film ‘Achcham Madam Naanam Payirppu’ revolves around Pavithra, a 19-year-old girl from a conservative background. She is in that delicate stage between being a curious teenager and an intelligent woman and struggles to find a balance between societal expectations and personal desires.
“My level of excitement is at an all-time high. I’m thrilled that my debut film ‘Achcham Madam Naanam Payirppu’ is premiering on Amazon Prime Video,” said writer and director Raja Ramamurthy.
“It’s a very relatable story, told from the perspective of a young girl, which has never been attempted before in Tamil cinema. I worked with a predominantly female cast and crew, and their contributions have helped bring the female perspective to life brilliantly. was an absolute pleasure directing the young and very versatile Akshara and a seasoned veteran like Usha Uthup and I am honored to work with them in my very first film. I am confident that viewers across the country will appreciate our labor of love.
“When Raja told me the story, I immediately knew that I wanted to be part of this film. ‘Achcham Madam Naanam Payirppu’ is a slice of life, a light watch. It is a passing drama in adulthood where a young girl struggles to balance her desires with family pressures. I believe that every young adult will identify with my character in the film,” said Akshara Haasan.
“I’m absolutely thrilled with the love and appreciation the film has received at several international film festivals and I’m sure Prime Video viewers across the country will enjoy this film.”
“‘Achcham Madam Naanam Payirppu’ is really special to me as it marks my return to Tamil cinema after a decade,” said Usha Uthup. “I play the role of Akshara’s grandmother in the film, who is also a seasoned Carnatic singer. So, I also have to sing. I’m delighted with how the film turned out. is an entertainment show, but also has a very important message for the public: be honest with yourself and your feelings.”
