Many movies have an interesting title, but unfortunately, that becomes the only interesting factor in them. There have been many movies with interesting titles that has generated a buzz in the industry, but many of them fail to come up with an equally interesting theme or screenplay. Vavwal Pasanga easily falls into that category, for the title alone sounds interesting and nothing else in the movie is. Usually, these things happen in debutant director’s movies, but that is not the case here. Vavwal Pasanga’s director, Suresh, is not a debutant director, as he has already directed movies like Arasu, Gambheeram and Sabari!
Here is the story of Vavwal Pasanga. Kasi aka Vavwal (Rahul) is fit-for-nothing labeled youngster living in the city of Kumbakkonam. His daily routine involves scolding from her father, who always takes a dig at Vavwal’s inability to find a good job and settle in life. He somehow finds a job of assisting a cable operator, which is not a good job according to his father. His father continues to pour his love and care only to Vavwal’s siblings, but not to Vavwal. This sets Vavwal to reach new heights in his life to earn recognition from his own father. However, life doesn’t seem to be easy as he has to safeguard his love and has to deal with some rough business enemies and politicians.
There is everything in this movie Vavwal Pasanga – action, sentiment, love, emotions, comedy, hate and so on. However, the director does not seem to align all these things perfectly to make it a worth-listening story. For example, the director fails to show the lead role’s love intensely on screen, which gets no belief from the audiences.
What lacks in all the scenes is the energy and force, which forms the important element in filmmaking, especially when it is done commercially. The shift of location from Kumbakkonam to Chennai shows how desperate the director is to complete to movie!
Overall, Vavwal Pasanga is not a good deal to look into!
