Vizha Movie Review
Director: Barathi Balakumaran
Cast: Mahendran, Malavika Menon
Debutant director Barathi Balakumaran's Vizha movie revolves around a love story between Tappu player and Oppari singer. The films open with a death scene and the rituals that follow. But 30 minutes into the film you realize that it is just the premise for a love story between a Tappu player (Mahendran), and an oppari singer (Malavika Menon).
The only place where the lead pair can meet is a house of death. So, the hero and his gang of four is anxiously waiting to hear the news of a death and even goes to the extent of scanning the voters list to shortlist the probable candidates. Director put his hard work to make this story as a convincing love story and it is the subtle humour that keeps the narrative interesting.
Music scored by James Vasanthan really backs the story and helps to experience the soul of the film. The way the story gets unfold is worth mentioning. The portrayal of the lives and lifestyles is quite realistic. But the movie lacks the speed, if the director had put his effort on this too then the film turns to be a complete entertainer.
