3.5 / 5.0

Sasi, who has given good films such as Poo, Sollamale, and Rojakoottam, has helmed direction of Pichaikaran while the Naan hero Vijay Antony has essayed the protagonist role by taking the action and sentimental route. And how has the combination of this duo worked out? Read more to know.


We all love our mother. She is the one person who can see our tears even in our smile. And do the children love their mother just as the latter does? Well, watch Pichaikaran to get the answer to this question.

Star Performances

Vijay Antony has given a restrained performance and that complemented with his character. He has very well understood the nuances of his character and has underplayed it well. Whether it is the emotional scene or the romantic scenes he doesn’t brim with emotions. Instead, he has given a composed act. Well done Vijay! Satna Titus, who is a Malayalam actress, has done a convincing job. The rest of the characters ably support, and situational comedy works for the movie.


Pichaikaran, which is the production venture of Vijay Antony, has a very novel subject. Nowadays, the audiences are embracing such films, and this film will surely give a boost to Vijay Antony’s career. The movie-goers will view certain aspects of life from a different angle after watching this film.

What’s there?

  • The love story of Vijay Antony and Satna Titus is very cute.
  • The movie though has the risk of treading on the melodramatic line, nut it doesn’t do so. It has a right blend of humour and sentiments.
  • Some of the dialogues are commendable. 
  • The BGM of Vijay Antony is one of the assets of the film. It is novel and lets you get into the spirit of the film. The music of Antony also complements with the mood of the film.

What’s not there?

  • The initial scenes progress on a slow note and that is the major drawback of the movie.
  • Vijay Antony is seen beating baddies black and blue often. One will be quite unclear whether this is plus or minus for the film.


Such novel attempts should be applauded, and Pichaikaran deserves applause for delving into such an emotional topic with great nuance.
