Chittirem Pesuthadi Movie review
Chittirem Pesuthadi directed by Mysskin is a film that can only be described as “refreshing’.
Thiru (Narain’s debut role) is a heartless, ruthless person; he works under a local gang leader “Annachi” as his right-hand man. Charumathy (Bhavvana’s debut role) works in a social service organization and lives with her widower father played by Ravi Prakash.
They meet by chance, clash, quarrel and interact with each other. After some time, Thiru observes her goodness, falls in love with her, and is converted into becoming a good person. He gives up his evil ways and starts selling dolls on the roads for a living. In Tamil movies, it is usual to see love changing an inhuman man to a good human being. In Chittirem Pesuthadi, the transformation goes one step further; love changes an inhuman man - first into a good human being; then the same human being evolves to a divine being.
Charu is touched by the changed Thiru and encourages his advances. Their marriage is fixed, but Charu sees Thiru being arrested in a red-light area, and thinks that he was arrested in a brothel. The marriage plans are cancelled; Charu's helpless and disconsolate father commits suicide.
Thiru returns to his old lawless self. Charu's wedding is fixed, but Annachi's son has decided to marry her and sends Thiru to stop the wedding or even kidnap her for Annachi's son. Now Thiru reveals his true colours; he throws off Annachi’s yoke, kidnaps his son and decides to get Charu married to her relative at all costs. Naturally and predictably, there are fights, stunts, and misunderstandings after which Charu recognizes and appreciates Thiru's true nature, sacrificing heart and accepts that she had misunderstood him and misconstrued his actions.
Director Mysskin selected Narain and Bhavvana for the main cast after interviewing over 450 artistes. Dhandapani of Kaadhal and Pithamagan Mahadevan, who has hitherto appeared only as a villain, appears here in a more humane role. Ravi Prakash, who appeared in Alaipayuthe as the heroine’s father, plays the loving widower father of Charumathy. Director Shankar has offered Bhavvana a major role in his next production Veyyil on knowing of her polished and exemplary performance in Chittirem Pesuthadi. She will also appear as heroine in Madhavan's next movie Arya.
“No make-up” was the rule applied for this movie to show the artistes in a natural manner.
"Action Prakash", stunt master, has tried a novel approach; instead of regular stuntmen, he has used artistes with no prior stunt experience for the stunt sequences.
Ulaganathan, well known for his popular 'Gaana' songs, has shown his magic with the song "Vazameen" which relates human marriage to the marriage of fishes. The presence of Malavika's hot dance number in that song is sure to rock the theatres. ('Gaana' songs are an indigenous form of folk music developed in Chennai.)
A bonus awaits the music fans in the form of 6 themes available on Audio cassette/ CD performed by C. Sundar Babu, son of legendary veena maestro Chitti Babu.
Cinematography is handled poetically by Mahesh Muthuswamy, student of the well known Mr. P.C. Sriram.
Story, Screenplay, Dialogue Lyrics and Direction are by Mysskin, who is a talented artist to watch out for.
A story about violent gangsters, Chittirem Pesuthadi is a surprisingly mature and enjoyable film.
