Selvabharathy known for hilarious entertainers has come up with a movie that is a right mix of humour and emotions. It dwells on the special bonding shared between a mother and her son.
With Vivek at the scheme of things, he has managed to render a laugh-riot. Ranjith as Pasupathi is an apt choice for the lead role Ranjith has essayed the role with some comfort. Sindhu Tholani as Pasupathi's friend helps him in nursing his mother back to good health.
But the real scene stealer is Vivek. He plays a cop in a local station, who assists Pasupathi in his endeavors. Vivek's typical one-liners works out wonders in the movie. Shouldering a major burden in the movie, he has come up with a good performance after Sivaji.
Ranjith, leads his life for his mother. He comes from Rasakapalayam to Chennai to earn his livelihood. He meets Dass (Vivek), a constable.
After his acquaintance, he manages to gets the job of assisting the cops at the local police station. Pasupathi's heroics in pinning a criminal down result in rich rewards for Daas. He gets promoted as the local inspector. A sequence of events leads to Pasupathi's mother developing cardiac failure. In a bid to save his mother, Pasupathi runs around to arrange for money to meet the medical expenses. But fate comes in the form of a group of extremists, who hatches a conspiracy that lands Paupathi in prison. The movie ends on sentimental note with a touchy climax.
The rest of the cast includes Thyagu, Ilavarasu, Ganja Karuppu among others. Deva has composed the music, while Tajmal has handled the cinematography. Selvabharathy has managed to provide fun through the segments involving Vivek and Ranjith.
Amidst cliched mother sentiment stories, Pasupathi is different for it has a racy screenplay and sequences that are engrossing.
On the flip side, the director has lost the momentum in the second half. The screenplay has lagged down.
On the whole, the movie is enjoyable in parts thanks to Vivek.
