Pandi Palanisamy alias Power Pandi ( Rajkiran) is a former stunt master , who is now spending is retirement years peacefully in his son’s house . His life is just around his grandchildren and keeping himself healthy. Though he is physically and mentally strong his good deeds often brings him trouble , thus making his son Raghavan (Prassana ) angry, who wants him to act to his age and spend his last years in silence and peace. On one such occasion which ends in an outburst between father and son, Pandi decides to live his life again on his terms and leaves his son’s house . What happens next his the rest of the story.
Marking the debut of Dhanush as a director, Power Pandi packs a powerful punch with emotions and sentiments. Rajkiran the soul of the film , stands tall in his performance and claims the screen from the word go. The whole cast was carefully chosen and given specific amount of screen time and importance in this perfect feel good film. Though Dhanush comes in the later half of the story, doesn’t dominate but plays with the character. The ladies in the film Chaya singh, Madonna Sebastian give a decent performance , but Revathy just casually comes and sweeps us away . Overall Power Pandi is a total film of the whole family. I give it 7/10
