After his debut movie Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi being so impressive in 2012, the expectation with Vaayai Moodi Pesavum, the recent release of Balaji Mohan, was quite high. The movie has been able to live up to the expectation in parts with all actors playing their roles properly. This is a tamil-malayalam bi-lingual film which sawDulquer Salman making debut in the Tamil films. The film also cast Nazriya Nazim, Madhu, Robo Shankar and Priyadarshan.
Vaayai Moodi Pesavum is a movie with a unique concept but so many plots being highlighted in the movie, none of them got special importance. This is a story of an imaginary hill station Panimalai where a deadly virus is taking away the power of speech in people. People affected with the virus are losing their power to talk and those who try hard to talk are losing their lives. The infections disease of Dumb Flue only spread through speech and that makes the area a completely dumb place.
Arvind ( Dulquer Salman ) is a door to door salesman of Dr. Fix it. He is a helpful young fellow and he falls in love with Anjana ( Nazriya Nazim ). Anjana is a shy young doctor who has a step mother ( Madhoo) whom she cannot accept and a boyfriend who is quite harsh. Eventually Anjana and Arvind fell in love with each other. On the other hand, the Health Minister Sundaralingam, (Pandiyarajan) issues a notice ordering no one to talk. This creates a total mess up and you need to see if the lack of verbal communication creates problem in the relations or make them better.
The movie has other plots where you will get to see an orphanage where the little children are thrown out by the land lord. In one more plot you will see a drunken Ravi (Robo Shankar) protesting against a film that shows drinking as a bad thing. The story writer has tried to incorporate a lot of plots in the 149 mins long movie but the director has made sure that every actor gets their screen space. Overall a watchable movie is presented to the viewers with almost silent second half.
