Padai Veeran

– Review

Dhana, a former associate of ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam, has made his directorial debut with ‘Padaiveeran’, a rural drama that talks about communal clashes that happen in the southern parts of Tamil Nadu.
Singer Vijay Yesudas, who made his acting debut in Dhanush’s ‘Maari’, has played the lead role, while veteran director Bharathiraja has played a key character. Let’s find out how the movie is.
Muneeswaran (Vijay Yesudas) is a carefree youngster who roams around the village in the company of his friends. One day, he goes to the police station with an elderly woman.
There, he finds that cops are respected heavily by the public. He also understands that police job fetches free liquor, non-vegetarian food and unlimited power.
Following this, he decides to become a policeman. His uncle Krishnan (Bharathiraja), who is an ex-serviceman, helps him achieve his mission by bribing higher officials.
Thanks to this, Muneeswaran becomes police officer and gets posted in his own native. But now, the rural area is marred by caste violence and he finds that his own kin are involved in brutality in the name of caste.
Now Muneeswaran, who is a changed man, vows to teach a lesson to all those whose minds are filled with caste pride.
Vijay Yesudas has shown remarkable improvement when compared to ‘Maari’, while Bharathiraja lends a pillar-like support with a solid performance. Remaining members of the caste are adequate.
The in-charges of music, cinematography and editing departments have helped the director in presenting a movie with a message. The streaks of Mani Ratnam are visible in parts.
On the downside, Dhana could have ensured that there is no lag in the screenplay. Also, certain scenes are too predictable. But still, he has to be lauded for delivering an engaging rural drama with an apt message.

Rating: 2.75 out of 5
