Podhuvaga En Manasu Thangam movie review: Tamil romantic comedy

Debutant Thalapathy Prabhu’s film Podhuvaga En Manasu Thangam movie is set to hit the theatres now, with Udhayanidhi Stalin and Nivetha Pethuraj pairing up again to play the leads after their last success with ‘Oru Naal Koothu’. The movie reported to be a romantic comedy and has been produced by Thenandal Studios Limited banner. The movie is set in the Tamil hinterland, a first for the prolific actor Stalin. Soori has been added to the mix to amp up the comedy quotient, and R.Parthiban, the veteran actor and director, will play the role of Nivetha’s father. D.Imman has written and directed the musical score and Balasubramaniam has been credited with the cinematography.

The sound track has been noted for the inclusion of the Tamil singer Diluckshan Jeyaratnam, who is based in Denmark. Diluckshan has been putting up covers of Tamil songs on YouTube and this was how Imman noticed him for the first time. He has recorded the song titled Ammani Nee Munne,” a folkish melody” that captures the small-town setting of the film. The duet includes Shashaa Tirupati as the female voice.

The film is narrated in the backdrop of rural Tamil Nadu, and revolves around two men, Ganesh and Oothukaattan. Ganesh is unemployed and young, but wants to work to make the lives of the people in his village bettter while Oothukaatan, a narcissistic older man, wants to blow his own trumpet. Caught in the crossfire of these two men is Leelavathi, played by Nivetha, the young girl who has been trying to pass her high school examination for the past four years.  Udhayanidhi Stalin is Ganesh and actor-director Parthiban plays Oothukaattan.
