Vaigai by debutant R Sundarapandy is a very good first effort in Tamil Cinema by the director. The story inspired by a real life incident has nothing new to offer in terms of the story line but the director’s interesting narration of the subject has made the movie a watchable one.
Bala is the son of the rich Sai Kumar. He falls in love with Vishaka who is the daughter of the village postman Thalaivasal Vijay. The love is opposed by the rich father and the lovers decide to take their life by consuming poison and depart on train in opposite directions. Both survive without the knowledge that the other has survived. Bala is sent to Chennai to be with a uncle and Vishaka returns to the village in search of Bala and this leads to the tragic climax of the movie.
Bala who is the winner of Maanada Mayilada, has done a good job for his first movie and Vishaka also does well. The music by Sabesh Murali is on par with his previous venture Mayandi Kudumbathar and cinematography offers a pleasant touch.
On the whole Vaigai is a good watch.
