Storyline

Pichaikkaran revolves around Arul Selvakumar, who's a rich guy of the city. One day, he realizes that his mother's life is at stake and can't be easily saved. He then happens to meet a Swami who suggests him to give up all his pleasures and live as a beggar for 48 days, without revealing his identity intentions to anyone else. Accepting the challenge and telling about it only to his closest friend, Arul arrives in Chennai and as time passes, he forms a strong bind with other beggars in the city. He even comes close to Magizhini, a lady who runs a pizza parlour due to her good nature. Everything goes smooth until the day when he gets caught between deadly goons and his uncle who finds out about him and tries to overtake his business. Written by Prashast Singh

Nice story and wonderfully screen played for a film
16 October 2016 | by rameshprabhuSee all my reviews

I rarely come across a beautiful story with a good screen play This film has the commercial as well as the emotional element executed very well by the director Along with some great acting by Vijay Antony and others. Also those humorous rendition in the film were very well defined to express the social cause. It's emotion packed humorous thriller film over all, you would not leave any single shot out of it. People should not miss watching such films, these are the film's which Indian cultural audience would expect and I suppose such films would make a healthy environment. Family audience would love the film and kids as well not sure about the youths.
