The struggles of filmmakers have already been portrayed in movies such as Vellithirai and Maayakannadi. However, Puthumugangal Thevai attempts to retell the theme in a different way, which can also be called a copy of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya style, where the features another movie in different name. Despite mixing up the styles of good films, Puthumugangal Thevai disappoints big time.

However, Anand finds it hard to get a producer to finance his debut flick. However, a chance helps him to rope in an eatery owner Mani (Rajesh Yadav), who promises to help is debut venture. What happens with his debut flick and what are the hurdles Anand face forms the rest of the script of Puthumugangal Thevai.
Director Maneesh Babbu, in his movie Puthumugangal Thevai, often insists on how to make a good movie with all elements well handled. The ironic and pathetic fact is that he fails to adhere to his own words as Puthumugangal Thevai has nothing to impress the movie watchers.
A shoddy screenplay is the big minus of the movie and the pace too does not help the audiences in anyway. Movie watchers are left with confusion at the end of each and every scene, which just leaves the audiences annoyed. The characters are poorly written including the lead role and the actors too have not fared well to at least improve the quality a bit.
Overall, Puthumugangal Thevai is not up to the mark and can be easily avoided!
