Ponmaalai Pozhudhu - Movie Review

Within a span of two weeks, Tamil cinema has witnessed two films. Aadhalal Kadhal Seiveer (AKS) and Ponmaalai Pozhudhu (PP) - addressing a more or less similar issue openly. Both the films pretty much deal about the attitude of modern-day youth in love, friendship, sex and their relationship with their parents.

The film highlights the thin line that divides infatuation and love. It highlights how an increasing number of today's youngsters consider infatuation and love as one and the same. Simultaneously, the film also focuses on the role of parents in their child's upbringing, especially their teenage sons and daughters.

I loved the fact that the film subtly gives more importance to parenting than merely focussing on the teenage romance of its protagonists. It points out that most youngsters resort to doing what they are not supposed to do since they have been opposed by their parents. It instantly reminds us of our days as youngsters and when we did things that were considered taboo by our parents.

Aadhav's father is an understanding parent who satisfies every small need of his growing son, while Gayathrie's father doubts every action of his teenage daughter.

Unfortunately, PP lets its viewers down with a flawed execution. The time it spends to make its lead characters understand their emotions and come to terms with themselves, is a long wait and so not worth it. One wishes the film was shorter. The songs could have been done away with as they were not just a distraction, but a complete turn off.
