Saw this Tamil movie (Pisasu) on the New Year Eve. The English meaning for this word is “devil”. Will tell you my impression at first. Very different kind of movie. Director Mysskin has raised this movie to a world standard.
The hero (Naga) tries to save a girl (Prayaga) who was involved in a car accident. But the girl dies in the hospital. She then becomes a pisasu (devil) and moves into the hero’s flat. Why she moved into his flat? What happens at the end? That is the story.
Naga needs a good barber. We could never see his full face throughout the film.
Superb acting by Radha Ravi who comes as Prayaga’s father.
Editing was done very efficiently and the movie ends in 114 minutes.
A few scenes were copied from Hollywood movies. For example, the bedroom scene is from the movie Paranormal Activity.
