Want to watch TV or listen to radio or expecting a call from someone, the only respite is the Pannaiyar’s house (landlord) for the villagers. One fine day the landlord’s relative asks him to take care of his Fiat Padmini car as he leaves out of the village. Now the landlord gets attached to this car though he is incapable of driving the vehicle. Vijay Sethupathi who works for the landlord is now his driver and the village is proud of this car.

Landlord’s wife leaves a condition that she will travel in the car only if her husband learns to drive. Accepting this challenge the landlord learns to drive the car only to loose the car with some turn of events. Now will the landlord get the car back is the rest of the story.

A clear storyline, simple storytelling techniques with the director expertly handling a short film concept and has taken forward the story in an interesting manner without causing restlessness to the audience. Though the story is not a lengthy one, the director has taken efforts to hold the interest of the theatergoers.

The hero of the story is the car despite this fact Vijay Sethupathi has agreed to enact this character and has done complete justice to the act. Similarly Jayaprakash, Thulasi, heroine Ishwarya have done their role to the tee.

First half moves so quick that the second half seems to be boring at times. Certain scenes do not gel with the movie for instance the scene where the landlord’s angry daughter returns and the climax scene could have been crisper.

Apart from the director the other technicians that need a pat on their back is music composer Justin Prabhakaran, Gokul Binoy behind the camera and Sreekar Prasad with the scissors.
