Ponmagal Vandhal Movie Review (2020) – Daring effort and a must-watch Tamil film on OTT

Ponmagal Vandhal Movie Amazon Prime is a neatly crafted story told in a gripping way. It lends voice for the unheard. How an aspiring vulnerable single mother’s dream is demolished? How easily weak and downtrodden women are victimized at the hands of power and affluence? How the whims and fancies of rich and powerful people influence the Government machinery, judiciary, and finally the society?  How difficult it is for a weak and downtrodden woman to fight a society fixed with a stereotypical vision on a woman? The film portrays all the answers poetically. The debut director JJ Fredrick deserves applause for his daring effort.

Jyotika has given life to the character Venba and a daring role indeed. She, in her dual role as Jothi, portrays an aspiring, vulnerable single mother raising her only girl child. “Struggling and losing may be acceptable in a game, but in justice?” you can find such good dialogues throughout the movie. Each and every gesture, words spoken and scenes are crafted like a sculpture in Ponmagal Vandhal Movie Amazon Prime.

She has nothing else but the truth to her backing. Ponmagal vandhal movie OTT carries great work by the cast and crew, neat and daring script, and a “Must watch tag”.

The case was handled by Alexander, a DSP ranked officer now. The case was closed with video footages showing Jothi gunning down two youths.

Jothi is arrested and encountered by police. Everybody mocks “Petition” Pethuraj and his lawyer – daughter Venba Pethuraj for trying to get cheap publicity by raking up a sensational criminal case since it is her first case.

His arguments tilt the balance in favour of defense side. Venba’s main witness SI Suresh Pandiyan commits suicide. Venba is at cross roads. Who is Jaipur Jothi? Who is the main culprit? What happened exactly fifteen years back? How Venba is connected with the case? Will Venba untangle the knots and twists to win the case? Will Justice prevail?
