Chiyangal Movie Review :
===== Set against the backdrop of a village in Theni, Chiyangal is about the tale of seven mischievous senior citizens who are close friends. They live their life to the fullest, unmindful of how society judges them. Though a few of them are disappointed with the way their children treat them, they ensure to indulge in small things which bring a smile on their faces. As days passed by, two of their decisions to take their lives due to ill-treatment at home leave others devastated. They decide to make each of their ambitions come true, and start working on it. The five of them go to Chennai to realise one of their dreams to fly in an aeroplane. But a ghastly incident plays spoilsport to their plans.
The prime attraction of the film is the portrayal of friendship among the senior citizens, played by Nalinikanth, Pasupathyraj, Eashwar Thiyagarajan, Durai Sundharam, Samuthiraseeni, Sakthivel and Narayanasamy. Their struggles, small happinesses, pain of emotional neglect and other feelings are depicted quite engagingly that viewers can relate to them. Some of the character artistes, like the ones who played Nalinikanth's wife and daughter, too, put up a convincing performance.
The technical departments are okayish, while the romantic track of the male and female lead, essayed by Karikalan and Risha Haridas, falls flat. The film has its moments, thanks to some of the effectively made poignant sequences. But as the movie inches towards its climax, some of the scenes become melodramatic and the dialogues about protecting parents, though relevant, appear preachy.
movie has bagged 2 awards in JIFF
