Synopsis: Valarmathi (Sunaina), a girl from a rich family, falls in love with Pandi (Sabarish), who rents out mikes and speakers in Dindigul. When the stage is set for their marriage, an accident affects Pandi’s senses.
Movie Review: Pandi Oli Perukki Nilayam is a movie that is sure to become popular with TV programmes that telecast comedy clips from movies. With a cast containing names such asKarunas, Soori, Thambi Ramaiah and Singam Puli, you can expect quite a bit of fireworks on screen and they don’t disappoint.
The story revolves around the lives of ‘Mike set’ Pandi, his rival Karunas, push-cart vendor Muthaiah (Thambi Ramaiah) and his helper Soori (Soori). It’s a laugh riot initially with everyone picking on the other, and in the beginning it even seems that the director came up with a story just to fill the blanks in between the comedy scenes.
The screenplay lacks fluidity as the plot often takes a backseat to let the comedy track play out. The non-linear narrative, long-drawn comic scenes and the sub-plot of Muthaiah and his family hurts the movie.
In the midst of all this, Sunaina impresses with her acting. She is a treat to watch and her performance proves that she is destined for bigger and better roles. Sabarish, son of stunt choreographer FEFSI Vijayan, does an okay job but needs to work on his reactions in the emotional scenes. But he is in his elements in the stunt scenes, proving that he is a chip of the old block.
