Vizhithiru – Review

Muthukumar (Krishna), a call taxi driver, decides to go back to his native. When he is all set to board train, he realises that he has lost his wallet with money and the train ticket.

So, for one last time, he works as acting driver to Saravanan (SPB Charan), a journalist, who is at loggerheads with a minister over irregularities. Saravanan gets murdered and the gang is now behind Muthukumar, assuming that some crucial evidence is with him.

Chandrababu (Vidharth), a thief, enters a posh bungalow to carry out his job. There, he finds Saroja Devi (Sai Dhanshika), who too is a thief. But she is tied there in bridal costumes and with plenty of jewels. Both of them escape from the huge house

Then there is a visually-challenged man Dileepan (Venkat Prabhu) and his little daughter (Sara). As the latter’s puppy goes missing, both of them are in search of the pet.

We also have Vikram (Rahul), a rich spoilt brat who is the son of an industrialist. He is in love with Christina (Erica Fernandez) and is behind her all the way from Puducherry to Chennai to woo her.


Vizhithiru is all about how all the above characters meet at one point and what happens next. After Maanagaram and Kurangu Bommai, here comes yet another hyper-link story.

But its hyper-linkness is both the plus and the minus points of Vizhithiru, directed by Meera Kathiravan. While the narration increases our curiosity, it also leads to confusion towards the end.

Almost all the members of the cast- Krishna, Vidarth, Venkat Prabhu, Sai Dhanshika, Thambi Ramaiah, Abhinaya, SPB Charan, Sara and Naga Babu- have done their respective roles well.

The chase and stunt scenes are developed interestingly, though the making could have been better in many other scenes.

Vijay Milton and R V Saran who cranked the camera have given the right tones, while Sathyan Mahalingam’s music is good. T Rajendhar is wasted in a song.

The film tries to document what happens during one fateful night, connecting several otherwise unrelated characters. The idea must have sounded fascinating on paper, but on screen, it is not as impressive as promised, though it is good in parts.

Rating: 3 out of 5
