Movie Title



Vignesh Menon

Star Cast

Rahul Ravindran, Vishwa, Shikha, Anuja Iyer

Debutant director Vignesh Menon?s Vinmeengal, is inspired from a real-life incident and the film is different and thought-provoking, within the realistic format. Few filmmakers stick their necks out to tell difficult and different stories in these days of mindless entertainers . It requires patience to appreciate it fully, but deserves a viewing because films like this are hard to find.

Naren (Vishwa), a magician by profession and his wife Meera (Shikha) are a loving couple, but their world of joy crumbles, when they realise that their child Jeeva (Rahul Ravindran) has cerebral palsy. With his dad's confidant and colleague, Panchu (Pandiarajan) for help, Jeeva becomes a qualified teacher and works at a school in a hill station where he meets Ila (Anuja Iyer).

The handsome Rahul Ravindran who debuted with Moscowin Cauvery, returns as the physically challenged Jeeva and he has delivered the goods well. Anuja Iyer is apt and the understanding of her character is evident from her effortless portrayal of Ila. Vishwa another debutant is a promising find and Shikha as the mother is a revelation.

Debut music composer Jubin impresses with his melodies and lyrics by Na Muthukumar is very good. Ariyaadha Paruvathil and Un Paarvai ? stand out in the album. Cinematographer Anand Jeeva does a neat job with his beautiful visuals of Ooty.

On the whole, Vinmeengal is a clean and honest film with noble intentions and hats off to Vignesh.

Verdict: Good
