Did the middle-class guy meet his brother? Did the loan shark change his mind? What happens to the sincere employee? To know all these, do watch the film in theaters!

Star Performance

“Karunakaran” had performed well to the given character. Besides being a comedian, he had already done a good role in Uppu Karuvadu. Yog Japee and Santhosh Prathap had done a good job. Adith Arun fits in the role. Anu Sithara and Subiksha are the template heroines as usual. Imman Annachi peeps in some scenes and says that he is also in the cast.


Podhu Nalan Karudhi is a good title, but it didn’t live up to the expectation. The film has a good plot. But, as the screenplay and the characterizations are not dealt with properly, the film didn't impress. A little more detailing in the characterization, might have made the movie, a better one. The idea of projecting the money lenders is good. But, the director failed to execute it correctly.

What’s There?

  • The plot is good
  • Performance of the lead stars are okayish

What’s Not There?

  • Screenplay and execution need expertise
  • Characters are not detailed
  • The heroines are used as the templates


With the excellent story, if the screenplay and the characterization had been better, the film would have succeeded. If you want to watch a different film from the routine, then you could choose this!
