Panivizhum Nillavu Movie review
Panivizhum Nillavu is the proper acting launchpad for hero Hriday, who played the role of Arvind Swamy and Manisha Koirala's son in Mani Ratnam's Bombay.
Hriday is a happy-go-lucky guy who gets into trouble with his boss (Pandiarajan) for being late to office. However, he lies and escapes. His long-lost friend suddenly calls his after a very long time and invites Hriday for his wedding. Hriday is reluctant to go, and refuses, stating that he would have to meet unwanted people if he came there. By unwanted people, Hriday means his former college mates, who were once his closest friends. However, the friend states that he has not invited any of their college mates, other than Hriday. Accepting this, Hriday again lies to his boss about having to go help his mentally affected aunt, and takes leave and starts out to his friend's wedding. The friend has arranged for a bus to transport people to his wedding happening in Karaikal. In the bus, Hriday is seated next to Venniradai Moorthy, whose wife has warned him that there are a lot of homosexuals who might try to get into a relationship with him. Hriday's friendly behaviour makes Moorthy think that he might be a homosexual. While on the bus journey, Hriday thinks back to how close he was with his friends during college, and how all of a sudden he felt betrayed by them, following which he shifted to a different city and cut-off all links with them. At the marriage, Hriday comes across his old college mates and tries to leave, but his friend restrains him and requests him to stay back... What happens next forms the remainder of the movie. What did Hriday's friends do to make him feel so betrayed? Why did Hriday break up with his college love - Maya? Will things get back to normal? Watch Panivizhum Nillavu on the big screens to know...
Director Kaushik is fresh off the success of his recently released Aadhiyum Andhamum. He has taken a simple love story with an intense twist and presented it neatly. The comic portions have been neatly done with veterans Pandiarajan, Kovai Sarala Kavithalaya Krishnan and Venniradai Moorthy evoking quite a few laughs. Debutantes Hriday and Eden have done a good job. Hriday looks good and has done well in the song sequences. Eden has given a very thorough performance, and one cannot make out that she is a debutant. The support cast have chipped in with some good performances. LV Ganesan's music is very good. However, the song placements could have been better. The cinematography is very good, especially in the second half.
If you want a feel good romance comedy, go watch Panivizhum Nillavu in the theatres.
