Veteran actor Nasser’s son Luthfudeen Baasha turns hero with this film 'Parandhu Sella Vaa'.

Sampath (Luthfudeen) a compulsive flirt goes to Singapore for work. He stays with his friend Mani (Satish) who has a girlfriend (Anandhi) and few other roomies who share the apartment. He has the habit of impressing whichever girl he sees.

His roommates always bully him for his inability to make even a single good-looking girl to fall for him. In a bid to impress them, Sampath takes his colleague Mark’s (RJ Balaji) help and narrates a fictitious story of a Chinese girl  Lily Chan whom he saves from local thugs and hence she madly falls in love with him. To make his story more authentic Mark creates a fake Facebook account using the photos of a local model and small time actress Min Yuvan (Narelle Kheng). 

 

Meanwhile, Sampath’s parents fix a match with Madhavi (Aishwarya Rajesh) who also lives in Singapore and the duo takes a liking for each other. When all seems well, now enters Min who initially is furious with Sampath for misusing her pictures, but watching him on several occasions, she falls in love with him. The rest is all about who gets Sampath’s hands.

Luthfudeen is apt for the role of happy go lucky guy character. But there are hardly any scenes to prove his histrionics. Aishwarya Rajesh looks good, but her talents are underutilized. Narelle Kheng’s character is well written and she does a great job replete with good lip sync. RJ Balaji and Satish’s comic act work to some extent. Karunakaran’s episode looks redundant. The problem with PSV is that there’s a lack of coherent story. Joshua Sridhar’s songs and background score are adequate.

 

The re-mix version of Nammavvooru Singari number from 1979 (K.Balachander’s classic) has been shot well. Cinematographers Sathosh and Prabhakar have captured Singapore in its true essence with several eye-catchy top angle shots. It felt like a conducted tour of the island nation.
