Vaayai Moodi Pesavum Review


There lives a hyperactive and talkative sales representative Aravind [Dulquer Salman] in a hill station Panimalai, who is aspiring to become an RJ in local Radio station. In quite contrast, Anjana [Nazriya Nazim] is a reserved and very less speaking doctor in government hospital. One day RJ Balaji visits Panimalai Radio Station for a special program and suffers flu named 'Dumbflu' [sufferer looses his voice]. Slowly the virus spreads int he town and Aravind catches the flu and meets Anjana for regular sessions of treatment. Aravind believes talking and negotiating solves problems, whereas Anjana considers talking leads to problems. How will love blossom between these two opposite personalities? Forms the crux of Vaayai Moodi Pesavum.


VMP is a welcoming debut to Dulquer Salman. He looks super charming and has performed his role effectivly with different mannerisms. Being a Keralite, Dulquer speaks Tamil fluently without any Malayalam influence.

Nazriya looks charming and done his role subtly. Brings out the role of Anjana with ease and is beautiful on-screen.

Though Madhoobala has very little scope to perform, she emotes well proving herself a promising actress. Robo Shankar, health minister Pandiarajan, Kadhilil sodhappum Sathish and Vinu Chakravarthy are few others who brought life to Vaayai Moodi Pesavum.

Technical Analysis:

After proving his hands on direction with Kadhalil Sodhapuvadhu Eppadi, Balaji Mohan has come up with a different yet entertaining story line 'Vaayai Moodi Pesavum', telling us the importance of communication without being much preachy.

Soundararajan’s cinematography gives the chill look to the Panimalai hill area [Munnar in real]. His camera works elevated the songs composed by Sean Roldon. Background music suits the genre well, especially in the second hald. Maatra Paravai and Udaiguren conveys are good to watch.

Abhinav Sunder Nayak's editing works are okay as the movie just has 120 mins running time.


Balaji Mohan's story, screenplay and narration are apt for the movie. Apart from interesting characterization and casting, technicalities such as music, cinematography and editing supported in film's success. Balaji has satirically criticized the ongoing situation of banning movies in the state with Nuclear star Boomesh [John Vijay] vs Drinkers association head [Robo Shankar] clash epsiode in the film, which evokes good laughter.

Though VMP is an engaging entertainer, second half could not be appealing to all the viewers comparatively. As most of the scenes doesn't have dialogues [Flu effect] and viewers had to concentrate on visuals. Reminds you of Kamal Haasan's Pushpaka Vimana.
