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

good movie
26 September 2016 | by raomnrSee all my reviews

No words actually the concept was New and Vijay Antony's performance was remarkable!The scenes going through the Movie are basically in relation that how Our Indian people respect their values. one of the best heart touching piece is where Vijay gets the alms of his girlfriend. Really tears were down the line in this scene. Hats off to Vijay sir for opting this sort of stories & shashi sir who were part, sorry the main- who directed the movie so beautifully. really Amazing one from shashi sir.Hope more & more movies of this sort come up & entertain all of the people out there.wish the Team crew of'Bichagadu' a very good future & success.
