Experimental movies have become a latest trend in Tamil film industry. Movies like Soodhu Kavvum, Pizza, Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom and Neram have managed to impress the moviegoers even with an unknown lead cast. The success of these movies has motivated the debutant director Naveen to script Moodar Koodam.
As the title suggests, Moodar Koodam is the story of a
group of fools, which is made on the theory of Gautham Buddha,
"It's better well to travel well than to arrive." The plot revolves
around four unemployed youths - Naveen, Vellaisamy, Sentrayan and
Kuberan who land in the same jail for minor offense and become
After their release from the jail, few undesirable circumstances
force them to join hands for a robbery. They decide to rob

in the film, but it is the meeting of these characters at regular
intervals that keeps us away from boredom.
Naveen, a former assistant to director Pandiraj, has handled a
very different genre. He must be appreciated for having a clear
vision of what he wanted to make as the end product.
Few songs are used to narrate the flashbacks in the movie.
Natarajan Shankar's music are not the usual foot tapping numbers.
Song 'Nila Nila odi vaa' is an interesting remix song.
The slow pace in the second half is the only drawback in the
movie. Moodar Koodam is a must watch if you love black
