Kudos director Thirumala Kishore for his guts to do a family drama at a time when power-packed action flicks rule the roost in Tamil cinema. He musters all courage to render an emotional tale in Pillayar Theru Kadisi Veedu.
The movie starts off with enoiugh fun under the sun. Jithan Ramesh's humourous take with his friends will bring the roof down with laughter. However the movie takes a total turn in the second half. It gets more serious, monotonous and ends on a tragic note.
Jithan Ramesh seems to relish the opportunity. He gets everything to do in the film - romance, fight, make comedy and even emote. Sanchitha is a welcome addition to the young heroines in Tamil cinema.
Ganesan (Jithan Ramesh) is a callous youth who has a never care attitude. A fan of actor-director Vijaya T Rajendher, Ganesan spends all his time boozing, singing and dancing with his friends.
Obviously he gets the wrath of his father. But his romance blossoms in his life thanks to Sandhya (Sanchitha Padukone). She is Ganesan's sister's friend who comes on a vacation to the village. He admires her beauty.
When Ganesan decides to open his heart to her, enters Valli (Suhasini), Ganesan's uncle's (Ilavarasu) daughter with a proposal to marry Ganesan with the blessings of all elders in the family.
A sudden twist in the plot towards the climax ensures the movie end on an emotional note.
Chakri songs add pep to the film, while his background score too is good at places.
Three cheers to Thirumalai Kishore who manages to narrate a simple story without any pretensions quite convincingly. However the story reminds one of the movies made in 1980s. There are many loose ends and the script lacks pace.
