He meets a Magzhini(Satna TItus) where she & her friends run a Pizza shop..She & he falls in love..Slowly after some ego & attitude, Arul started to live a beggar life with some good hearten beggars in temple..there he gets into couple of problems & even lady love knows the truth that he is beggar..did he successfully lived the life for 48 days?did the problems in his new life solved & Satna gets married to him or not? mother wakes from coma or dies in..is all presented in heartwarming & interesting screenplay
++ Sasi director of Poo,Dishyum, Sollamale, Rojakootam is back with bang..the mother sentiment with beggar plot with interesting characterizations, and hard hitting dialogues..movie goes with good pace & touches our heart in couple of scenes..the screenplay is neat with subtle heroism, son-mother emotional sequences, comic capers in beggar episodes, cute romance scenes & good mix of action falls at right place..Sasi otras pastillas como el viagra needs a pat for touching a gutsy story & presentation which may slightly get over bored but not…welcome back Sasi!!!!
++ Vijay Antony is decent in the movie, where we needs special mention on his guts to play the character of beggar ..His script selection is major strength for his career…
++ Satna Titus debuts with a good movie and she excels better than Vijay..Expressive eyes & good acting will make this girl do a round in kollywood
++ Casting is good & their performance add brightness to the script..Moorthy, as co beggar, the laughing villain, Deepa Ramanujam etc finds place…
++ Dialogues are in best form..hard-realistic-simple detailed to common audience with some social problems & trend news catches our attention ..the best..Moorthy intro about begging in temple, his lines on black money in radio show are treat…
++ Photography is crystal clear & goes dirty in subject of beggar..night scenes & nenjorami songs are shot well.
++ Vijay Antony Background score is highlight & sure transforms the emotion to the audience
++ Good screenplay , good characterization with simple &curious presentation -good climax is sure to stay for some time…
++ Humor laced in the script works big time for the emotional movie..
++ No violence, vulgar or double meaning dialogues or heroism makes this movie a clean family watch..
— Songs are major flaw, and this is surely the below avg song of Vijay Antony’s movie...Though Nenjoramai song is melodic others are just average for the movie
— Too much of stunts say 6 no is unwanted..the post interval actions & one more fight could have been easily edited added to medical test scenes…
— Few commercial compromises like stunts, cinematic cliches could have been avoided knowing that it keeps the movies tempo.
Sasi’s direction , dialogues with fantastic screenwriting & characterizations along with humor & performances sure make this Pichaikaran a must watch..not a trend setting movie..but a feel good flick…
Verdict:7/10 ( 1 for plot& humor , 1 for screenplay, 1 for dialogues, 1 for Sasi’s direction, 1 for Vijay& Satna, 1 for photography, 1 for cast & performances)
Movie canvas punch : Pichaikaran..Hail & wealthy…
