Film Exposure: PonMagal Vandhal
Most of us feel a good film is one with a strong message at the end of the movie. This tends filmmakers to make movies where the message is larger than the story. Similarly, #PonmagalVandhaal is a movie that has a larger message than the actual story.
The film had a very predictable screenplay as we knew each twist before it even happened. Right from the beginning you knew there was something wrong with the events that take place, how the film was going to end and what was Jyothika's role in the issue raised.
However, the predictability didn't change the fact that the film had a clear goal.The goal was to educate and raise awareness on Child Abuse. The film did not divert away from the main issue till the very end. It was clear, straight forward and hard hitting.

Well made movie and holds the audience right from the first frame.
Interval is impressive. Power packed performances. Jo
This film was to convey a message through emotions on an issue that needs serious actions. As Suriya's voice over says 'Delayed Justice is Injustice'.It was also interesting and touching on how the film demands us to put ourselves in the victims position.
All praises for Jyothika who plays Venba, for portraying the character with ease and for accepting such a role.We wanted to see more from a very talented casting around her but more from them would have just diverted the film away from the main issue.
Friday Matinee: #PonmagalVandhaal - Average Court Drama which is predictable is almost all portions . Good Theme but a more gripping execution was required . Performances turned out to be good. Technically Ok ! Music also on the average side.
Aleena Joy: #PonmagalVandhaal
Worth a watch execution of socially relevant subject with an abv avg 2nd half followed by excellent 1st half with a terrific interval punch. Could have made better towards end.
#Jyothika steals the show along with #Prathappothen.

Jayanthini: #PonmagalVandhaal is a film which show cases many reality stories of children. Child abuse is one of the most common abuse that often goes hidden or victim blamed. Every child has the right to live freely and once the abuse is done it cannot be undone. A must watch film for sure!

Every parent teach their daughter how to dress, how to walk, how to speak and whom to speak.
Every parent should teach the same kind of manners to their child how to treat the fellow Girls in the society.
