As life goes by, Ravi Rahul happens to save the life of the film's heroine one day. However, she mistakes his actions as trying to mibehave with her and she slaps him for it. In time, she realizes she is wrong and soon falls in love with him. Meanwhile, Sampath comes to the town and enquire's the people about Ravi Rahul by showing his photograph. The residents of the town however reply saying they do not know Ravi Rahul. The rest of the plot revolves around why Ravi Rahul came to the town, why Sampath is on the look out for Ravi Rahul, whether the heroine conveys her feelings to Ravi and whether he goes on to accept her.
Ravi Rahul is seen looking sad throughout the film and has only emoted half of what the script has demanded of him. Although he's a newcomer, he has played his part in a satisfactory manner. The heroine has also been given quite a lot of importance and she has tried her best to deliver a good performance. There are many familiar faces in the film and they have all played their parts in a welcoming manner.
The film's hero Ravi Rahul is also the director of Salaam and has attempted to make a film relevant to our times. His efforts to tell a story about religious unity needs to be complimented, but the execution part is where he should have paid a little more attention. Tarun Antony's songs as well as background score are average and Magibalan's cinematography could have been better.
In short, Salaam is average.
