Vijay Antony, Santa Titus

Sometimes clichés work well. Especially if the filmmaker is intelligent enough to weave all the tried and tested factors in an engaging screenplay, there are better chances for the movie to entertain.

Vijay Antony’s Pichaikkaran is one such film, which is rightly packaged with mother sentiment, heroism, enjoyable romance and witty dialogues.

Arul (Vijay Antony) is a multi-millionaire and his only worry is his deceased mother, who is bedridden. When Arul approaches a saint, he tells him to lead a beggar life for forty eight days. The rest of the film is all about how Arul adapts himself to the new environment and how his offering cures his loved one. Of course, the film has a solid message with cute romance and plenty of action sequences.

Pichaikkaran's strength is Sasi’s packaging and captivating dialogues. The director has also got the right casting and each and every actors have done their job well. To start with, Vijay Antony fits the bill perfectly both as a posh businessman and a fierce beggar. The actor has become confident, and he is super convincing in action sequences.

Newcomer Satna Titus looks cute and her girl next door look is a big plus. The rest of the actors including Baghavathy Perumal and Muthuraman as a comic villain are just perfect.

Although the second half of the movie moves slightly at a slower pace, the poetic interaction between the hero and heroine followed by an emotional climax packs a punch.

Technically, Vijay Antony’s 'Nenjorathil...' is an instant hit melody while the Pichaikkaran theme too elevates the scenes to a different level. Cinematography by Prasanna Kumar elegantly capture the streets of Chennai and Veera Senthil Raj’s editing is sharp.

Overall, Pichaikkaran is yet another well packed entertainer from Vijay Antony.
