Synopsis

Bosepandi (Sivakarthikeyan), an aimless youth, is constantly at loggerheads with Sivanandi (Sathyaraj), a big shot in his village. Matters come to a boil when he falls in love with Sivanandi's daughter Lathapandi (SriDivya). Will the hot-tempered father accept his tormentor as his son-in-law?

Critic's Review

If films are a reflection of the times we live in, we are clearly living in the era of the wastrel. First, we had righteous heroes, who fought for the common man; then, came the angry young men, who rebelled against the corrupt system; now, we have the wastrels, who seem to have realized the futility of fighting the system and become aimless, self-centered individuals. Varuthapadatha Vaalibar Sangam continues Tamil cinema's recent trend of the worship of the wastrel.

The film's leading man, Bosepandi, is an unemployed youth who is content to live with his widowed father, whiling away his time running a club, the titular Varuthapadatha Vaalibar Sangam, with his similarly worthless friend Kodi. They are their village, Silukuvarpatti's bete noires, wooing the girls and picking up unnecessary fights with the elders. Bosepandi often crosses the path of Sivanandi, the village's unofficial head honcho, whose fearsome image is fabricated by his four aides. And, on the side, he is using his school-going daughter Lathapandi to send love notes to her teacher (an indifferent cameo by Bindu Madhavi), ruining his plans to marry off the 16-year-old Latha, and eventually falling for her (though, she is 18 by this time).

What makes this rather predictable film appealing to an extent is the lighthearted manner in which Ponram tells his story. That is why the framing device that he uses to tell this story - the film starts with the question whether Sivanandi murdered his daughter to protect his honour - feels out of place, though, the debutant director does turn this amusing towards the end. The film is also overlong, with unwarranted songs (though Oodha Kalaru is infectious) and prolonged scenes that at times make the humour seem repetitive.

But the actors are endearing enough to make us forget these flaws and have a good time. His streak of success has boosted Sivakarthikeyan and here, he effortlessly slips into the role of Bosepandi and finds the right pitch to not make him an annoying character. At one stage, he even admits he is unable to come up with a wisecrack to counter a comment. Soori compliments him quite well though it is a role which is tailor-made to his strengths, while Sathyaraj's performance always suggests that we shouldn't take things too seriously. But the real surprise is debutant SriDivya, who, is expressive, and can lip-sync very well, which isn't the case with most of our heroines today. Do not be surprised if, like Lakshmi Menon, she soon becomes the go-to girl for directors scouting for homely heroines.

Funny at times, while boring otherwise. Movie is based on the story of Bosepandi and how he falls for the daughter of the rich and famous Sivanandi. Romance is not exactly Sivakarthikeyan's thing but he suprisingly pulls it off with style. Enjoyable if watched if friends.

Congress ke Rahul baba aur Manmohan Singh ne is desh ka sarvanash kar diya hain. They and their party have made us public look like fools who have to tolerate mindless corruption and inefficiency on a daily basis. It is time we Indians rise and throw out these demons for good before they become a cancer in Indian society. It is time for us Indians to come together and usher in a new era of peace and secular prosperity with Namo in 2014.

Though the movie doesn't have any strong plot, but manages to keep you watching the movie.. The movie is total pack of fun & laughter. Enjoyable. Siva did his job perfectly, Soori backed him up with his style. Sathyaraj's role as father was also good.!!!! Loved the movie.

The career graph of Sivakarthikeyan is up day by day with his movies and the way he(or Director) exploits the comedy punch as well as messages through it will make it more watchable. The song Ootha colour ribbon is already the talk of the town. My only query is WHY tamil movie directors are always shows the Hero's as a bunch of wasteful youth without JOBS which is a wrong message passed on to the viewers. This will send the wrong signal to today's youth and who are all unemployed

Movie's plus is Siva, Sathyaraj and Soori. Siva and Soori's combination is good. Sathyaraj has done his role well. Nice songs. However it has more of standup comedies than subject oriented. If you are going to the theatre for entertainment then you will be satisfied.
