Pannaiyarum Padminiyum Justin Prabhakaran tamil Movie Song Lyrics
Pannaiyar, a landlord, becomes emotionally attached to his friend's car and decides to buy it. What happens when his friend refuses to sell the car?
Men generally share a deep emotional connect with their vehicles, be it a
cycle or a two wheeler or a car. There have been memorable movies based
on this unique ‘love affair’. Debut director S.U. Arun Kumar spawns a
tale out of this very bonding that exists between a ‘Pannaiyar’ (a much
respected man in the village) and his car. This car becomes like a
family member for almost the entire village and the tale spanning many
years, is narrated through a young man who shares a long history with
Vijay Sethupathi is at the center of action most of the time and puts up an earnest and lifelike performance as Murugesan, the driver who works at the Pannaiyar household and is almost like their son. Vijay’s hairstyle is reminiscent of Superstar Rajini’s flowing long hair in the 80s and he carries the typical ‘son of the soil’ looks. Vijay also has a little romance running with a girl in the village, played by Iyshwarya Rajesh.
We also have young comedy actor Bala Saravanan putting up a truly entertaining show as ‘Peeda’, Murugesan’s sidekick. This young man seems to be a natural comedian and he makes it look so easy with his facial expressions, accent and body language. Bala lightens the mood and often enlivens the proceedings with his antics.
Ultimately, Pannaiyarum Padminiyum (PP) is mostly about the beautiful relationship that exists between Mr. and Mrs. Pannaiyar, played remarkably by Jayaprakash and Thulasi. Such a mature romance hasn’t been showcased in a more endearing manner in recent times. The way they address each other as ‘Kelavan’ ‘Kelavi’ ‘Vaaya’ ‘Poya’ is actually cute. Jayaprakash shows his caliber as an actor whenever he exhibits the deep love that he has, not only for his wife but also towards his car. Thulasi is establishing herself firmly as a superb onscreen mom and wife.
