Podaa Podi tamil movie review

Podaa Podi is the most awaited film of the year. It is being made for a long time and has finally come to the theatres a day before Diwali. The movie is a musical romance, and sees the popular STR or Simbu, pairing up with Varalakshmi Sarathkumar.

The movie is directed by Vignesh Sivan. This debutant director has chosen a somber conflict between the couple, due to their differences in perceiving matters. He boldly deals with the conflict occurring with passion and reticence. The movie is thus a fight that takes place between the choices made by the independent girl and the boy’s instincts. Sivan has put forward a comic presentation of the subject, involving many arguments. The audience is able to mark a clear distinction between the girl and the boy.

The movie in its latter part goes on to a very clichéd way. Although the heroine puts forward very strong arguments, the hero wins over her in every step. Hence, slowly, the independence of the girls falls down and it is dominated by the hero masked by the names like love, Tamil Culture and possessiveness.

Each husband has equal right to put forward his opinion on the preference of his wife, but the person should know where the ending line is. If the wife holds a stronger preference than him with which he is uncomfortable, either he should manage that way or get separated. In this movie, the hero blackmails his wife emotionally in order to get things done in his way. The hero throws chauvinistic dialogues, which are unacceptable.

All in all, the movie has failed to impress the viewers fully. The script although starts well, gets monotonous and predictable towards the end. However, Vignesh has put in certain elements like funny dialogues, birthday celebration of Arjun, which makes it a bit watchable.

Verdict: Disappointing on the whole, with loads of imbalances in ideas.

Rating: 2.25/5
