Sujatha Narayanan Firstpost Pa Paandi is lit up by the strong, resilient and heartwarming performance by Rajkiran. Rated: 4/5 Jan 16, 2024 Full Review Baradwaj Rangan Film Companion ...the film blooms when Revathy appears. This section plays like an urban spin on MT Vasudevan Nair's story, Vanaprastham, and it's remarkably free of melodrama. Jan 16, 2024 Full Review Karthik Kumar Hindustan Times Dhanush’s directorial debut is emotionally uplifting. Jan 16, 2024 Full Review Vishal Menon The Hindu A film so inherently likeable that you’re glad to overlook its flaws. Jan 16, 2024 Full Review M Suganth The Times of India There is an easygoing chemistry between him and Revathy, who lends Poonthendral charm that makes her instantly lovable. No wonder that the film soars in the portions where these two actors are seen together. Rated: 3.5/5 Jan 16, 2024 Full Review Karthik Keramalu Film Companion He shows his top-tier skills in Power Paandi where he makes a grey-haired man run after the love of his life as though the senior citizen were an energetic teenager — it's something we don't often see in Tamil films.

Audience Member About first love and dignified man! The directional debut film for actor Dhanush. After his father, brother, wife and sis-in-law, now it's his turn, but did he succeed! Well, no doubt that he's one of the finest actors of this era. Multi-talented, though this film was an above average. Seeing the characters and the message, it had potential, but too much traditional narration for commercial gain let it down. I mean it should have been a pure drama film without any songs and unrealistic fight sequences. A famous ex-stunt coordinator, living happily in the twilight of his life with his son and his family. That's what he had thought until every time he ended up in trouble only to disappoint him. Then begins his soul search journey which lets us know his flashback and how the rest of the tale unfolds was told emotionally. The narration splits into three and liked them all, but the third one was the best. Both, Rajkiran and Dhanush were good. The music was really a disappointment. One of the BG score was quite similar to the film '3'. Apart from stunts and music video, the rest of the film is what worth a watch. A decent direction, that he can still be a great director if try to give more realistic film for such a story. A rare film in Tamil. You won't see regularly a film about an old man. So it should be watched. 7/10 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
