Poikkal Kuthirai movie review


Prabhudeva who loses his leg in an accident, comes to know that his daughter’s life is in danger. She needs to undergo a life saving heart operation which will cost a huge amount.

Unable to bear the cost of the treatment, Prabhudeva hatches a plan to kidnap a girl from a rich family for ransom.

But this attempt fails, following which he makes a different a different attempt.

What happens next, was Prabhudeva able to save his daughter forms the rest of the story.


One of the major strenghts of the Poikkal Kuthirai directed by Santhosh P Jayakumar is its running time.

The movie has a crisp running time of less than two hours and the director does not waste any time in getting into the plot.

Prabhudeva is introduced as a regular father caring for his daughter. But slowly there is a change in his character to save his daughter.

Prabhudeva has carried this role and the various emotions with ease. Key characters are introduced now and then keeping the audience engaged.

Special mention to the roles of Varalakshmi Sarathkumar and John are etched out well. Imman’s music compliments the plot well.

Rating: 3.3/5
