Storyline

What the Indian press is saying about "Orange Mittai"

"Orange Mittai is a beautiful film …Like the candy it is named after, Orange Mittai with its sweet and sour moments, is a beautifully narrated film with just the right balance of humour and emotions." Rediff Movies

"Orange Mittai is that one rare movie which comes in Kollywood with a good message." The Wire.

"Orange Mittai is a simple feel good movie without much fuss and hype silently will enter into your hearts…" India Glitz

"Orange Mittai is a colourful entertainer that engages you." Kolly 360

"…the film is a quiet ode to the bittersweet life." The Hindu

"Vijay Sethupathi proves his mettle once again in an unconventional role with his power packed performance." Deccan Chronicle

Tamil cinema star Vijay Sethupathi and director Biju Viswanath teamed up to write Orange Mittai for the inaugural project of the actor's newly-formed Vijay Sethupathi Productions, in collaboration with producer B. Ganesh. Sethupathi himself takes and conquers the challenging central role of a middle-aged ailing eccentric, Kailasam, who has been alienated from his son. The story converges around Kailasam and the young paramedic, Satya, who comes to his aid and finds that things are not quite as they appear to be. Satya, sensitively played by Ramesh Thilak, is feeling the recent loss of his father, and the ambulance ride with Kailasam is the premise for a type of father-son confrontation. The subtly-tuned drama is tempered by comedic moments provided by Arumugam Bala as the Sancho Panza-like ambulance driver. It should also be pointed out that this film goes off the beaten track in its lack of classic song-and-dance treatment, a fact which could be regarded by some as a courageous choice for Tollywood. The soundtrack is appropriate and compelling without being overwhelming, and includes several outstanding songs that do not detract from the verité tone of the story. Viswanath's cinematography is a visual treat. It takes up the lyric style of his earlier films and runs with it, offering a sense of immediacy, an inner stillness that savors "the now" and values it as something precious, beautifully supporting the concept that "journey is destination." – Kudos.
