Suriya plays the role of a teacher and as expected, the movie is on the lines made to educate parents and reassure children about life. For the average movie goer, it might be boring but for people with young kids, it's a must watch!

Quick Glance

What's great?

  • • Suriya in an important role

  • • Supporting cast by Karthik, Ramadoss, Amala Paul and others

  • • Nishesh and Vaishanavi – the young stars

  • • Colorful presentation

  • • Message to the audience

What's not?

  • • Can't avoid Taare Zameen Par feel

  • • Documentary style preaching will bore most regular movie goers

  • • Not a wholesome entertainer as Pasanga

Nishesh and Vaishnavi are two young kids who suffer from ADHD. They are hyperactive which is considered wrong in schools which is when Suriya and Amala Paul steps into help their parents identify that it's not a disease to be scared of.

The Cast

Instead of being the stars they are, Suriya and Amala Paul has done their best to portray the role. Similarly, Ramadoss provides comical relief while Karthik and Bindhu Madhavi as the serious couple represent the upper middle class family. The young kids Nishesh and Vaishnavi are the stars of the film. They have done a brilliant performance to bring the characters to life.

The Team

Director Pandiraj has done a good job in taking up a subject that most filmmakers will shy away from but the only difference is that his first movie was a wholesome entertainer for people of all age groups. Pasanga 2 is meant only for families and young kids while others may find it boring.

The scenes are too predictable but dialogs try to save them. It looks a lot like Anjali set in a flat environment. But, at the end, the film carries a message which makes it impossible to ignore.

Bottom line - Meant for kids and their parents!

Certified Fresh - Yes!

Stars - 3/5
