After making a mark in almost all the departments in the industry, Dhanush has made his directorial debut with Paa Paandi. Has the film, which has released amid much expectation, lived up to it?
Rajkiran, a former stunt artiste, lives with his son (Prasanna) and family. He is a do gooder which often leads him to trouble.
This leads to several fights between the son and the father. After a certain stage, Rajkiran sets off on a bike trip to find his first crush played by Revathi. Did he meet his first love, what happens after that forms the rest of the story.
Dhanush has taken an emotional script which has a complete family background. It deals about the relationship between a father and son and the life of a 60-year-old man.
Dhanush’s Midas touch has worked out in direction as well, as he has handled all the characters deftly and has brought out the best from them. He has clearly delivered what he wanted to convey.
Rajkiran has completely the nailed the character and steals the hearts of the audience. He has shown class, mass and emotion and holds the movie together.
Prasanna, son of Rajkiran in the movie, has understood the weightage of his character and has given a solid performance.
Revathi could not have asked for a better comeback and has a breezy role to play.
Sean Roldan is another hero in he movie, who has made the audience to get involved in the story with his BGM and songs. Velraj’s cinematography is equally good. On the flipside, certain scenes are too predictable.
To sum it up, Pa Paandi is complete family entertainer which is worth the watch.
Rating: 3.5/5 – Power of Passion
