There is an elite club of batsmen in International cricket who have scored a century on debut . DHANUSH has just done that in his directorial debut film POWER PAANDI ! Watched this just released film at P.V.R., Ampa mall. VERY DECENT FILM without any obscenity or embarrassing dialogues. Touches on the crucial aspect of the inner feeling of a father who happens to spend his old age with his son , daughter in law and two cute grand children. RAJKIRAN excels as usual .
His expressions are cute . The scene where he blasts his son PRASANNA for his lack of tolerance with his father is outstanding . DHANUSH’s entry after interval in the flashback as the young version of RAJKIRAN and his pair MADONNA SEBASTIAN have done justice to their respective roles . The dialogue where Madonna calls Dhanush to come inside her umbrella to prevent him from getting wet in the rain and the response of Dhanush wherein he calls Madonna to come out off her umbrella to feel the rain reflects the blossoming love and the way a romantic pair should see the world . Revathi as the older version of Madonna Sebastian does well too. ORU SOORA KAATHU OORA PAARTHU VARUGUDHU” sung by Dhanush himself is impressive.
Lyrics stand out in the songs . Pallavis could have been more catchy in the rest of the songs and the music better . The chatting on fb messenger by the old pair RAJKIRAN and REVATHI is very very cute and enjoyable. The film is also a tribute to legendary stunt masters . OVERALL IT’S A FILM WITH A MESSAGE which says ” DON’T TAKE YOUR ELDERLY PARENTS FOR GRANTED , TREAT THEM WITH DIGNITY BY UNDERSTANDING THEIR INNER FEELINGS “. Great start Dhanush . Many more centuries will follow at this rate !
