There were many instances of debutant film-makers who make low-budget films and emerge a winner. There will no famous names, but still the movie would have been a success. Well, Kida Poosari Magudi is one such film which has no big names to boast about. Let’s see whether it works wonders on us.


The movie is set in a rural backdrop, and three characters are the essence of the film. Thamizh (who has produced the movie) is involved in the act of sacrificing a goat for the God Ayyanar. He does this act with prowess. He is also deeply attracted towards his niece, Natchatira. But Natchatira, who is affectionate towards goats, doesn’t have such intentions. She is attracted towards Ramdev, who comes to their village from Chennai. After knowing this, Tamizh carries a sickle to his sister’s place and forcefully ties the knot to Nakshatra before the idol of Ayyanar. Though Natchathira initially hates Tamizh, she gradually develops a soft corner for him.

At this juncture, Ramdev comes to the village again. What happens to the lives of the lead pair after his arrival? Watch the movie to unbolt this question.

Star Performances

Tamizh, who debuts with this film, slips into his character with great ease; he has come up with an outstanding performance in a character that has negative shades. This is the first film of Natchathira in Tamil, and she gives a convincing act. She has understood the seriousness of her character and has expressed the required emotions aptly. Ramdev has delivered a realistic performance. Singam Puli, Power Star Srinivasan, Subburaj, etc. ably support.


The director of the movie, J Jayakumar, has earnestly attempted to avoid stereotyped scenes. He has maintained the pace of the movie in such a way that it’s mostly engaging. 

What’s there?

  • The screenplay is handled well.
  • The characters are suitably cast. 
  • The story is very realistic. 
  • The biggest strength of the movie is Ilayaraja’s music. The music complements with the tempo of the movie. The maestro has also done a brilliant job in BGM. 
  • The cinematography of Ravi Seenivas is a treat to the eyes. 

What’s not there?

Some of the comic scenes could have been etched well. 


A commendable effort by debutant director J Jayakumar.
