Review: House of sentiments


Ganesan is a fun-loving youth whose world are his friends. His father (Jayaprakash) is angry with Ganesan's callous nature. But a change occurs in Ganesan's life in the form of Sandhya (Sanchitha Padukone).

She is Ganesan's sister's friend who comes on a vacation to the village. At a time when Ganesan falls in love with her, Sandhya falls sick and go unconscious.

Ganesan takes her to hospital. He is shocked when the doctor (Prakashraj) informs that she is affected by cancer and that she will die in few months. Ganesan in a bid to keep her happy till her death marries her and comes home. What follows is a twist.


When emotional dramas are confined only to the small screen, director Thirumalai Kishore has thought otherwise. His maiden venture Pillayar Theru Kadaisi Veedu, a film starring Jithan Ramesh in the lead role, is about a youth caught between his love and relationships.

Though the filmmaker has packed the first half with lighter elements, the latter half takes away all the sheen, for it's like watching a mega serial with a lot of sentiments and emotions overflowing.

Unlike his earlier ventures, Pillayar Theru Kadisi Veedu provides opportunities in plenty for Jithan Ramesh to prove his acting skills. He excels in dance and stunt sequences. The good-looking Sanchitha Padukone gets equal screen space and she utilised the opportunity well.

Others in the cast, including Jayaprakash and Ilavarasu, prove yet again why they are the sought-after character artistes in Tamil cinema. Chakri's music and Panneerselvam's cinematography are adequate.

The knot is interesting and the execution is nice. Had only the director cut down an overdose of sentiments towards the climax, Pillayar Theru Kadaisi Veedu would have been a treat to watch.
