The director had come up with fresh approach, which had won audience hearts. Now, he is returning with Vaayai Moodi Pesavum, which is simultenously made in Malayalam with the name Samsaaram Aarogyathinu Haanikaram. The movie marks the debut of Dulquar Salman, the son of Mammootty.
Vaayai Moodi Pesavum has left an impact in the minds of audience with its posters and the trailer.
Verdict: A light-hearted family entertainer even though there are double entendre jokes at parts.
Balaji Mohan’s second film Vaayai Moodi Pesavum produced by Varun Manian’s Radiance Media is refreshingly fresh, quirky and innovative. It is one of the best romcom’s laced with satire in recent times, and a lead pair that crackles.
The story is set in an imaginary hill station Panimalai, where we are introduced to a host of crazy characters. The plot is driven by a news anchor (Balaji Mohan) of Prime News, whose only aim is get TRP’s for his channel.
On the whole, VMP is thoroughly enjoyable. Balaji Mohan has reinvented the romcom formula. Go have your share of fun and chill. It is like having a satisfying meal.
The trailer of Vaayai Moodi Pesavum certainly establishes the quirky idea of the film rather well, but Balaji Mohan proves his creative mettle by showing that his out-of- the-box material can sustain itself for over 2 hours and achieve an emotional connect in the end.
Star son Dulquer Salman, making his Tamil debut, rides on the confidence of his Malayalam success and charms his way through as a thoroughly likeable boy next door.
Verdict: With fiction, comedy and experimentation, Vaayai Moodi Pesavum will be one of the coolest movies to come this year.
