Pichaikkaran is the story of a man, played by Vijay
Antony, who disguises himself as a beggar and leads the life of
one, spending time on the streets of Tamil Nadu.
What is the reason behind him wearing the mask of a beggar? Why
does he opt for a sombre lifestyle when he can live life king size?
Answers to these questions is what the film is all about.
Vijay Antony takes the action and sentiment route in
Pichaikkaran. Not that he hasn't tried stunts on screen
before but this flick projects him as an action hero and the
Naan actor has done justice to his role.
What's surprising in Pichaikkaran is Vijay's ability to
pull off teary-eyed scenes with pinpoint precision. He manages to
score high in the fag end of the film.
Debutante Satna Titus is a good find to say the least. The girl
sure knows how to emote in an effective manner and might go on to
sign a couple more in Kollywood in the next few months.
Other supporting actors including the one who has portrayed the
role of the villain have done well enough to keep you hooked with
their respective acts.
Kudos to director Sasi for making good use of each and every
character effectively. Time invested in penning the character
details is apparent and praisable.
Cinematography by Prasanna Kumar stands out all the way through.
His usage of different colours and tones to match up to the mood of
different scenes works in favour of Pichaikkaran.
Music by Vijay Antony is another positive as it adds stability
to the film. Also, it's good to realize that Vijay Antony the
musician is back, which augurs well for the industry.
Editing by Veera Senthil Raj deserves a mention, for his cuts
are razor sharp throughout. Screenplay by Sasi is on the average
Barring a couple of logical errors, Pichaikkaran is tad
above par when it comes to technicalities.
Overall, Pichaikkaran is a neat attempt by Sasi and his team. High on sentiment and human values, the film does leave you with a feel good factor.
