One should really need a brave heart to taste and tolerate this Commercial Panchamirtham prepared by Perarasu. This time also, Perarasu takes a story that is often beaten by Tamil film makers from the sixties.
The hero kills his father's paramour at age of 10 to save his mother's life. After completing jail terms, he finds that his sister's husband is also having an illegal wife (chinna veedu) and betraying his legal wife. Again the hero takes the knife and kills Chinna Veedu of his uncle to save his sister's life and goes to the jail. It seems that the hero's main duty is killing the illegal wives of his relatives!
Bharath always has the image of boy to the next door, which very much helps him to do the soft roles with ease. But in Pazhani, Perarasu has tried to show this boy as an action hero, who is capable to do any brave things. In many scenes, this effort turns as comic and senseless. In most of the scenes, Bharat does what Vijay and Ajith did in Perarasu's earlier films!
The crude and meaningless punchy dialogues and untiming Kuthu songs make the film as real mess. Kajal Agarwal, the debutante heroine looks nice but she has hardly anything to do except dancing in few meaningless Kuthu songs. Khushboo just appears in most of the scenes ideally as a big wax doll. Her role as a victim of rude husband is not convinced to anyone or earn the sympathy from the viewers. Aishwarya is simply irritating with her bad voice and ugly body languages!
Perarasu knows well that there is no need for a separate comedy track in this film, because his punch lines serve the needful in this comedy lagged script! There is nothing special in Srikanth Deva's commercial score.
It is very clear that the director aims to cash the interest of B and C audience through Pazhani. But mind it, the people from B and C centers also literally improved a lot now and no long a filmmaker like Perarasu can survive with this kind of poor Masala!
