Light-hearted Comedy: Vedigundu Murugesan
Cast: Pasupathi, Deepa, Ranish, Veera, Vadivel and Jyothirmayi
This film tries to entertain with light hearted comedy and it succeeds up to a point.
The movie is set in the village of Kizhrajakularaman in Rajapalayam district. Vedigundu Murugesan (Pasupathi), a water-seller, is a street-smart guy who speaks cleverly about everything from love to money lenders. Murugesan, a serious kind of guy (he reads a serious literary magazine, Kalachuvadu), takes care of a mentally ill girl Ponni (Deepa), deserted by her family.
Murugesan runs into Nachiyar (Jyothirmayi), a police constable. She falls in love with Murugesan after discovering that he has a heart of gold.
Kodanchan (Ranish), the brother of local goon Low Sugar Ganesan (Veera), rapes Ponni and gets beaten by Murugesan. He accidentally gets killed and Murugesan is blamed. Ganesan wants to avenge his brother’s death. Meanwhile, Ponni gets pregnant following the rape.
The rest of the movie deals with what happens to Ponni and how Murugesan saves her.
Moorthy’s treatment is appealing, but he could have made a better film, had he cut the clichéd scenes involving the rape and its aftermath.
Pasupathy’s character lacks credibility. He speaks intelligently about everything under the sun. Then he changes tack to humor. Sometimes he looks like a powerful action hero. In the next scene he wants to run away from the villain.
Despite these inconsistencies, Pasupathy has got his body language and dialogue delivery right. He shows his flair for comedy but his serious facial expressions work against his efforts to make us laugh.
Vadivel as Alert Arumugam, who cleverly cheats people, makes us burst into laughter in many scenes. Jyothirmayi portrays a female police constable with ease.
Deepa as the mentally-challenged girl is perfect. Her portrayal of a mentally ill girl evokes genuine sympathy.
Dhina’s music and background score are loud and jarring. But a couple of melodies by K.J. Yesudass and Bombay Jayashree are tuneful.
The story and the script of Vedigundu Murugesan are not new. It’s the treatment laced with unmistakable humor that works in favor of the movie.
