Ponmaazhai Pozhuthu is one of the latest movies to hit the screens in Tamil cinema industry. The movie, which has been directed by director A C Durai, is a take on the lives of middle class teenagers who want to have a life as per their wish without bothering about the harsh realities of the life. The movie, which has come in time very close to the release of the much spoken about movie Aadhalal Kaadhal Seiveer with the same theme. Aadhalal Kaadhal Seiveer had better narration and execution, which seems to be not present in Ponmaazhai Pozhuthu.
Arjun (Aadhav Kannadhasan) is a classmate of Divya (Gayathri) and they both get along with each other as friends. Once they share an ice cream with each other and this incident falls in the eyes of Divya’s father. Her father is quite conservative about relationships and reacts to the incident violently by beating Arjun in front of everyone in the class mistaking them as lovers. This incident leads Arjun to love Divya for real, as both become so defiant and do not give in to their parents. Arjun’s father finds shades of his own youth life in his son and becomes practical and helps him in his love indirectly. However, Divya’s father is not so practical. What happens to the young couple?
Ponmaazhai Pozhuthu has its moments and the characterization of Arjun’s father is also written well. However, rest all comes as a big mess. The screenplay has been marred by unjustified placement of songs. The sequences, at times, lack logic and do not go hand in hand with the advertised conditions of the characters.
The movie becomes preachy at the end and tries to convey the audiences a message for life. Probably, most of the audiences might ask why they should need a message for life in the first place when all they need is just a sensible entertainer to entertain them for two or so hours.
