Vidiyum Munn (2013)
Balaji K. Kumar’s Vidiyum Munn is the most excitingly staged movie since Mysskin’s Onaayum Aattukuttiyum. The movie is aptly summed up by it’s tagline – Four Formidable Men, who, for Three Different Reasons are chasing after Two Women in One Day!
Producer Javed Khayum, director Balaji K Kumar (with experience of having worked in Hollywood), music director Girishh Gopalakrishnan (of Marina fame) and Sivakumar Vijayan (former assistant of PC Sreeram) and a bunch of actors well-known for their powerhouse performances have come together with a new face Malavika Manikuttan (child artiste making her debut), to deliuver the best thriller of recent times!
Balajee Kumar’s Vidiyum Mun is basically a thriller which is happening in one day. The basic plot of the movie goes like this ; four different men chases two women(one a girl) for three different reasons, very interesting right? But a director can’t fetch victory just with interesting ideas it should be converted into an excellent script with all kind of logic and when it comes to thriller everything including actors’ expression, cinematography, background score should be well glued with the movie’s flow.
A professional call girl Rekha (Pooja) is on the run with a 12-year-old girl Nandhini (Malavika). Who or what are they on the run from? That is a big question, because there are many different groups who are pursuing them.
Rekha’s pimp (played by Amarendran), is one of the people pursuing her, because he has been given a 24-hour deadline to capture and bring the 2 ladies back or his life is being threatened! Vinoth Kishan plays a relentless and ferocious head of a gang pursuing Rekha and Nandini with such a rage that really is frightening. John Vijay is a mastermind who uses his intellect to deduct stuff and track the runaway duo.
Just when you think that both the lady and the kid have gotten away, they fall into a trap and are captured by a gang! Who is it that finally captures the 2 women? What is it that they want from them? Why are the 2 on the run? To get all these question answered and for a rivetting 2 hours plus of movie viewing, watch Vidiyum Munn at a theatre near you!
