Cast overview:
Poovitha ...
(as Satish)


Vimal plays Veluthambi, an educated young man who comes to a village as 'Gram Sevak' to teach children so that he gets a certificate, by which he can get a job in a government school. Though hesitant at first, he agrees, as it is his dad's (Bhagyaraj) dream to see his son in a government job. Veluthambi reaches this remote village where everyone including small kids work in brick kiln for livelihood. These illiterate people are taken for a ride by the employers who do not want the kids to be educated. Veluthambi brings about a change in the system due to his humanness work and dedication. How the 'Vaathiyar' to the villagers, achieves it and at what cost forms the rest of the story. The scenes and characters in the village like the running one-up-manship between Vimal and Thambi Ramiah over a maths riddle or the city bred hero not knowing the customs and rituals in a village that brings a smile. A goat chasing Vimal, and his scenes with the children are a scream. The soft romance as ... Written by Anonymous

Vaagai Sooda Va :-Shear Brilliance of directional display

Post 2000, Tamil cinema has shown that cinema is not all about stardom but it is all about story and screenplay. Continuing the trend Vaagai Sooda Sa is definitely a brilliant movie. Adapting a concept of education for children , director Sargunam has sculptured the screenplay of the movie in such a way that the movie is entertaining as well as informative. Songs are sweet to hear and 'Sara Sara' song stays in your heart for the actress reactions.

Tamil industry has produced brilliant directors off late and Sargunam is on the list to glory.

Vaagai Sooda Va :- is a must watch
