Catch the dead Tiger’s tail…

In their own terms, filmmakers try to add some additional flavours during the remake process with an attempt to gratify the regional audience. But most of the times, it turns out to be a disaster spoiling the original version and sometimes, they outmatch them.

Let us see where Puli Vaal exactly falls into…

The film centers on five different characters. Vimal works in a supermarket and is in love with his colleague Ananya. Prasanna belongs to a filthy rich family and is getting engaged to Iniya. But he has an affair with his secretary Oviya, who in turn blindly believes that he truly loves her. Prasanna captures their intimate moments together in his mobile. Things get critical when the mobile goes missing and gets into the hands of Vimal.

Realising the need to give his best shots, Prasanna has done a good job. He sticks to his role perfectly and so is Vimal, who delivers a neat job. Three heroines – Ananya, Iniya and Oviya are decorous in their performances. But the problem comes with the poor writing. Why does the filmmaker try to add unwanted elements into this film? The taste of original version gets completely spoiled here. Few scenes are lengthy and ruin the mood. Even the sequences that are supposed to be racy lack the pace. If Maarimuthu had boldly deleted the songs and unwanted comedy tracks, Puli Vaal would be more engaging.

Musical score by Gopi Sunder is good and enhances the visual feel. But that doesn’t help it achieve the great standards.

On the whole, Puli Vaal is a below average film and is a complete disappointment from Radaan that had earlier remade Malayalam movie ‘Traffic’ as ‘Chennaiyil Oru Naal’.

Verdict:Catch the dead Tiger’s tail…
