Bala's "Sethu" remains unforgettable, "Nanda" was appreciable and "Pithamagan", his third venture, is incredible. There is novelty in the storyline, astuteness in the screenplay and deftness in direction. It is the story of an undertaker.Chithan will remain a remarkable milestone in Vikram's career. Without any dialogue to support him he carves a niche for himself in the viewer's mind with his expressions and excellent body language.In the recent past, with every film Surya has been making giant strides. In "Pithamagan" he reveals another dimension, very different from what he's attempted so far. As Sakti, Surya's glib tongue, smooth talk and fraudulent dealings make you laugh aloud. And matching him inch for inch in humour and slapstick is Laila. Gomathi (Sangeetha), the drug peddler, is another surprise packet. The turn about ought to pay rich dividends. Mahadevan, the new villain from the Telugu screen, is another impressive part of the cast.Illayaraja music is truly mesmerizing it is a treat to watch the "Pithamagan" in action..
