Pallikoodam
 

Pallikoodam Welcome Back to school

OVERALL REVIEW:

Pallikoodam is a good effort by cinematographer-turned director Thangar Bachan who has taken up a community cause and made a fascinating story of it with the right mix of romance and emotion.

CASTING:

THANGAR BACHAN (Kumarasamy): He plays a farm-hand, and also tries to bring the District Collector his friend Naren to the village to save the institution. 

NAREN (Vetrivel): The lead character, who is a ex-student of the school and working as the District Collector of Kancheepuram. He has played his character with distinctive emotions.    

SNEHA (Kokila): She plays the role of teacher, who studied with Vetrivel in the same school, now works there.

   All others who has played the role of ex-student Seeman (Muthu), who has become a cinema director.  Sreeya Reddy, who is a nurse running a dispensary, have done a good job.

DIRECTION:

Director THANGAR BACHAN has to be congratulated for his selection of social cause theme. The scenes were pictured in pleasant way which slowly but strongly presents the simplicity, poor but lively nature of life of village.

MUSIC / SONGS:

Bharathwaj has literally made us to go back to our school days memory by his song "Meendum Palliku Pogalam" and all other tunes are just synchronized with the story. 

CINEMATOGRAPHY:

THANGAR BACHAN's touch is reflected in the sequences like "Kaadu Pathunguromae" in which the teachers search for absentees, the meeting of three friends and "Intha Nimidam, Intha Nimidam" song.       

SECENS I LIKED MOST:

  1. Meeting of three friends.

  2. Teachers search for absentees.

  3. Sneha Song sequence.

  4. Thangar Bachan receiving his friend in his village (climax).

  5. Old students narrating their memories in the inauguration function.

MOST LIKED DIALOGUE:

  • "Appa Rendu Car Varuthu" (Two cars are coming) - Dialogue by Thangar Bachan's kid while the old friends arrive.

TAG LINE:

"Welcome Back to the School".
 


CONCLUSION:

Visit your school and do something for your school. Worth watching.                                

Score: 70/100
