Vaazhvu Thodangum Idam Neethane review


Zakira is the daughter of an influential devout Muslim family in Tharangambadi. She is not allowed to go out anywhere and spends her time at home painting.

Vinodha, a trendy young woman from Trichy who interviews the livelihoods of the underprivileged and publishes them on YouTube visits the village.

She takes permission and stays with Zakira’s family in their house. First, Zakira and Vinodha become friends and later realise that they are attracted towards each other. After that their friendship turns into love.

Vinodha tells the truth to Zakira’s father before leaving Tharangambadi. Shocked to hear this, Zakira’s father scolds Vinod and sends her away and arranges for Zakira’s marriage with Irfan. Irrfan is happy thinking that he is going to marry the girl he loves.

Zakira calls Irfan alone before the wedding and tells him that she is in love with Vinodha. At first, Irfan is angry and later offers to help Zakira.

Zakira goes to Trichy to look for Vinodha, and in the meantime Vinodha goes to Tharangambadi to look for Zakira. What happens next forms the crux of the story.


Jeyaraj Palani has made the story based on the struggles that a lesbian couple from different background have to undergo.

Director has grabbed the attention of the audience by maintaining the suspense of what will happen next with every scene.

Jeyaraj has took up a sensitive issue and has delivered in a convincing manner.

Suruthi Peryiasamy and Niranjana Neytiyar have understood the weightage of the story and have performed accordingly.

The way they have depicted their respective characters is commendable. Rest of the supporting cast inclduing Arshath Feras, Arumugavel, Pradeep RJ, Maaran Karthikeyan have all done their part well.

Dharshan Ravikumar’s music has elevated the movie. S Gokulakrishnan’s camerawork has captured the proceedings in an interesting manner.

Rest of the technical aspects are passable.

Rating: 3.3/5
