A tribute to Revati madam's contribution to Tamil cinema

Pa.Pandi (PP) review by Arun Oliver
After a long hiatus , I left the cinema hall with puffy eyes.
Do you have retired parents back home ?Do you feel condemned with the faintest guilt of not being a good son /daughter?
Then I assure you a good weep , post watching PP.
PP will remain in you as a guideline ,on good behavior towards elderly parents .

Rajkiran’s journey at an age post 70, in search of his first teenage love, doesn’t make us feel ashamed of his ACT.
The audience feel for him, the audience love him and want to see him happy.
This is what Dhanush as a debut director has achieved through the characterization of Rajkiran.

The movie reminds me of a quote , “ The ultimate aim of martial arts is not having to use them”.
Rajkiran is a cinema stunt master and the only thing He is good at, is fighting.
Many scenes show him pushed to the edge of temper outburst, but he harnesses himself.
This character of staying calm in spite of humiliation ,make the audience love him even more.
Revati , revati, you never know how much we love you.
Myself being a kid of the late 70s would say that it was revati that pampered us during our teens.
Mouna ragam , punnagai mannan, arangetra velai, kizhakku vassal ,Anjali ,devar magan, ect ect…….
‘ We have grown old together' , are the only words I long to tell her.
A feel of ‘ innocent romance' between her and Rajkiran is what makes us love their reunion .
Revati is adorable and this movie is a tribute to her contribution to Tamil cinema.
Prasanna and Chaya sing.
The manmadharasa song fame ' chaya singh ' is back to limelite nearly after a decade.
Prasanna’s repentance for being a disrespectful son ,makes us feel that he is forgiven.
Pa pandi, is not a message to those who put old folks in old age home's, it is a message to those who keep parents with them and make it as miserable as an old age home.


Wow!!! A brilliant flick which couldn't have gone any better.. Kudos to all the cast and crew!!!

Dhanush - Keep rocking with many stuff's like this!!! It was a feast watching Power Paandi in theater's!!!
