Pichaikkaran Plot:

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 side.

Barring a couple of logical errors, Pichaikkaran is tad above par when it comes to technicalities.

Overall View:

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.
