Some movies makes you feel different in all of its aspects, PP could be easily listed in that category. A plot which entirely revolves around a car!! Really a new idea and promising that Tamil industry is progressing in a healthier way. Hats off to the debutant director and his crew for this film.
A village drama about a land lord and his pride of owning a Premier Padmini car which was considered as a prestige in the 80's. Casting: Vijay Sethupathi has lived as Murgesan the driver who is treated more like a son in that house. He is so effortless with the way he takes the character with his appearance. JayaPrakash who has always been the promising supporting in recent tamil cinemas has taken the lead role in this movie as Pannaiyar. He has delivered a very solid performance in showing romantic expressions towards his wife and car. Thulasi as Mrs. Pannaiyar is the actual heroine of the movie she is so natural and has done 100% justice to the role of Chellamal. For the first time in the tamil movies we see a natural elderly and matured love story tale and where the youngsters love line has been side tracked and over taken by these two oldies. Absolutely heart warming love between Mr. And Mrs. Pannaiyar and particularly the way they address each other was superb.
Ishwarya Rajesh as the love interest of Murugesan has a very limited scope in the movie. She looked fine in her role with her expressive eyes. It seemed like it was all Muthazhgu of paruthiveeran who started this heroine style. Bala Saravanan as the side kick of vijay fires the comedy crackers which was enjoyable throughout. Neelima as the greedy and demanding daughter of Panniyar has added the little negative shade needed for the movie about all goodness and no violence. Cameo roles by Dinesh who narrates the story to us and Sneha were no surprise element because they were included in the flow of the movie.
The movie was initially a success as a short film. Debutant director Arun Kumar has made a sincere attempt in expanding it into a refreshing feature film and has succeeded in keeping us engaged. Cinematography by Gokul Binoy was absolutely brilliant in the way he has captured the liveliness of the village and has made us believe in the car as an important character. Music by Justin converted the entire movie into a melody with his BGM.
To the negative side I have not much but length of the movie could have been reduced by 15 - 20 mins. Some scenes you feel the movie is too slow but I feel that's because it's nature of the plot
Verdict: Get inside for a soothing story of an old man and his bonding towards his car and wife. You will feel happy and satisfied in the end, if you are a lover of story and acting based movies with absolutely no violence. Watch it with your family definitely this will bring up nostalgic feelings of your own first car and village visits.
