Balaji Mohan had earlier delivered a hit in the form of Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi. 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. It generated a kind of curiosity and people hoped that they have something special in store for them this time too. And Balaji Mohan has almost lived up to audience expectations. How? Find it in the review...
Set in imaginary hill top Panimalai, our hero name is Aravind (Dulquar Salman) and he is a sales representative. He has the ability to convince people to buy his products. Anjana played by Nazriya Nazim is a doctor, who is reserved and doesn't like to talk much. She has a boyfriend, who imposes restrictions on various things. There are also many other characters Minister Sundaralingam (Pandiarajan), ‘Kudigara Sanga Thalaivar' Ravi (Robo Shankar), landlord (Vinu chakravarthi), Vidhya (Madhoo), actor Boomesh (John Vijay) etc.
And also Roja actress Madhu has also played an important role in the film with director Balaji Mohan playing a cameo of a TV anchor. Dumb flu hits Panimalai and people lose their speaking ability. The government puts a ban on speaking to ensure that the disease won't spread. How the people react is shown in funny manner. The movie mainly revolves around talkative Aravind and reserved Anjana's love story.
People could see variety of personalities and their speaking styles. Director Balaji Mohan has created different kind of roles and brings in a lot of fun moments through them. One thing that we should appreciate is that fact that there are not commercial distractions in the storyline and the humour quotient is high in Vaayai Moodi Pesavum.

The screenplay is refreshing and human emotions have been perfectly presented. There are satire on present-day politcally motivated scenarios like banning movies.
In the first half, there are fully of lively moments but in the second half, there are only ten minute of talk time. Characters use motion language that may not be liked by all section of audiences. The second half appears to be draggy.
Dulquar Salman is a treat to watch. Despite being a Malayali, he speaks Tamil fluently and justifies his role. Nazriya Nazim is a delight to watch. Pandiaraj, Robo Shankar and others have done justice to their roles.
Sean Roldan has done a brilliant job. 'Kadhal ara onnu vizundhuchu', 'Podhum ini nee varundhadhe', and the title track are our picks. His background score in the second half will come to notice. Soundarajan's cinemotography is illuminating and editor Abhinav Sundar has done a neat job even though his scissors could have been sharp in the second half.
A light-hearted family entertainer even though there are double entendre jokes at parts.
