Pollaadhavan Movie review
Pollaadhavan is a film that mixes commercial elements with reality very well. Debutant director Vettrimaran has successful combines mass appeal elements with reality.
The movie revolves around Prabhu (Dhanush) who is a lower middle class boy who accidentally gets involved with the underworld. And all this because of a bike!
Prabhu is like any other young man who aspires for the bike of his dreams and of course a beautiful girl. Prabhu is a jobless graduate and his father(Murali) the sole earning member in the family. The father and son are always at loggerheads and one day Prabhu is caught by his father for stealing money for booze.
The confrontation leads to Prabhu accusing his father that he has not done anything for his upbringing. Hurt by his son’s remarks he arranges for 70,000 rupees which Prabhu immediately spends on a new bike.
This shocks his family, but after getting the bike Prabhu becomes responsible and takes up a job as a loan officer.
He now focuses on his second dream and starts wooing Hema (Divyaspandna). He succeeds in this endeavour as well. He has now got everything he aspired for, a bike, a girlfriend, and a decent job.
But Prabhu’s world is to undergo a drastic change.
Selvam (Kishore Kumar) is a powerful leader of a gang that deals in drug trafficking and other anti-social activities. His younger brother
Prabhu’s encounters with the underworld begin when his bike is stolen from a murder scene. This brings him in direct confrontation with Selvam’s gang. His pursuit to get his bike and how he deals with the criminals forms the rest of the story.
Though the movie resembles Selvaraghavan’s Puduppettai, Vettrimaran has succeeded in writing a good script executed stylishly. Camera by R. Velraj is outstanding.
Dhanush once again plays the innocent young rebel very well. The others in the cast have executed their parts very well. Though Divya doesn’t have much to do, she adds the glamour element to the film.
Karunas and Santhanam as the hero’s friends have done a good job. Murali and Bhanupriya as Dhanush’s parents have together flawlessly portrayed a lower middle class family.
Music by G.V. Prakash is good and the track that takes the cake in the remix ‘ Engeyum Eppodhum’ composed by the sensational Malaysian singer Yogi B.
