A housewife named Mathangi (Jyotika), who lives in a small picturesque village in Tamil Nadu called Vengaivaasal, hopes fervently for peace and quiet and looks forward to the reunion of two families who get caught up in the ideological battle between their righteous but hot-headed brother Vairavan are (M. Sasikumar) and her law abiding husband and headmaster named Sargunam (Samuthirakkani). The film was based on earlier hits like Udanpirappu with “Kattappa” Sathyaraj and Viji (1993) and Pasamalar (1968) with Sivaji Ganeshan and Savitri.

The main difference between these films and Udanpirappe is that in the films that were talked about, we were first shown the sublime bond between brother and sister, so when the rift happens, we feel terrible. While Vairavan believes in quick justice, even if it means defending yourself and resorting to violence, his brother-in-law is a follower of the rules. In this film, director Era Saravanan starts with the separated characters and then just tells us the backstory of how close they were years ago, and somehow that approach of him in a way aims at the emotional impact of the plot.

The otherwise straightforward and emotional plot is also diverted through a half-baked subplot about Adhiban (Kalaiyarasan), which was grossly wasted in a rather caricatural role, of a rich young man who wants to build a bottled water factory in the village and his evil methods, the women in the village hurting what seems to take the entire focus of the film away.

In terms of performance, it is undoubtedly Jyotika who steals the entire show from the film not only as a producer, but also as the extremely self-sacrificing and noble housewife Mathangi, torn between her husband and her loving brother. Above all, it scores at the climax, when it is shown extremely intimidating. M. Sasikumar plays a very straight forward performance as principled Vairavan, although in certain scenes it looks like he’s been largely inspired by the mannerisms of Rajinikant.

Samithirakkani shows a very subdued performance compared to his appearances in some of his previous films, although I must admit that as a performer he in no way lets viewers down. Kalaiyarasan doesn’t impress with his performance as an antagonist, while Sija Rose’s dialogues bring tears to her eyes and make you pat her on the back, while Niveditha Satish is just passable as the daughter of Mathangi and Sargunam. Soori was wasted as a buddy, despite unsuccessful attempts to make something laugh halfway through.

It should be noted that Udanpirappe is Jyothika’s 50th film, probably also produced by herself in the titles. Her “second innings,” as she calls it, are littered with stories that advocate women. More precisely, her films speak of a demographic group that is often neglected on the screen for middle-aged women. While it is preaching at times and also predictable, it is worth looking at at least once.
