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
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
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
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. Continue reading the review

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.
