It’s about Four Formidable Men, who, for Three Different Reasons are chasing after Two Women in One Day. Who are these men? How are they connected to each other? What are their reasons to track down the two women? How are these women connected to the men? Will they get caught? If they do, who among the four men will wind up catching them? And, what will happen to them? These are the many questions that will get answered during its course. The plot unfolds as a taut thriller that examines the characters’vulnerability and strengths. The subplot, however, explores a relationship between a woman and a girl; Rekha, the protagonist, is a sex worker who tries to rescue Nandhini, a twelve-year-old girl, from the clutches of prostitution. The journey takes us through the brutality and the hypocrisy that surrounds us, which we deliberately choose to ignore — broken homes, abuse, unfulfilled dreams, manipulation, blackmail, threat, hopelessness and paranoia.

  1. Vidiyum mun is a very well executed thriller that keeps the viewers at the edge of their seat till the end. The director has taken a very sensitive subject and made us live through it. The movie was like watching a reality show every second of which is suspenseful making our heart pound through every scene in the movie. The scene when Lankesh questions Devanayagi about Rekha – needs special mention – without doubt will create chills. Very well scripted scene and superb acting. THe director Mr.Balaji Kumar has done an excellent job taking the viewers through the most cruel and painful journey and hence creating an awareness. congratulations!

  2. As the plot of this Neo Noir Thriller says: 4 Men, 3 Reasons, 2 Women and 1 Day, the narrative, having the backdrop of human trafficking brilliantly blends three reasons in the form of the stories, with some great twists and some high intellect content, having shades of films like Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho", Sujoy Ghosh's "Kahaani" and the recent Malayalam hit "Thira" by Vineeth Srinivasan. The film's pace gets hampered because of the emotional quotient (The same with its Malayalam counterpart "Thira") and the CG work in some scenes is actually not upto the mark. The film scores because of its screenplay by the director Balaji K. Kumar which grips you quite well with a shocking climax, the cinematography by Sivakumar Vijayan which gives you a great noir touch in every frame, the music score by Girishh Gopalakrishnan and the performances by Pooja Umashankar, Vinoth Kishan, John Vijay and Malavika Manikuttan, which are brilliant and worth looking for. Overall, despite rare loopholes, Hollywood returned debut director Balaji's narration succeeds in making you grip, giving you good thrills and chills, making the film coming in the list of films like "Aaranya Kaandam" and "Onaiyum Aatukuttiyum" giving Tamil Cinema a new level. A must watch. My rating would be: 3.5/5.

  3. The film opens with a woman and child, Kelly and Joanne, bursting into a London toilet. Joanne is crying and Kelly has a black eye. Eventually Kelly gets them on a train to Brighton, and it is clear they are running from someone.

    Joanne is an eleven-year-old runaway who is procured by a reluctant Kelly into having sex with an old violent mobster with a taste for underage girls. Kelly's pimp, Derek, bullies her into complying, but it all goes horribly wrong, and the old mobster is killed, presumably by one of the girls. The older man's son, Stuart, then forces Derek to find the girls. The film follows the duo's flight from London in the wake of what has happened.

    Arriving initially in Brighton, Kelly visits her friend Karen and tries to earn enough money through prostituting herself to help Joanne afford the train to Devon, where the child's grandmother lives. The two are eventually tracked down by her pimp and his associate and taken to meet Stuart at a secluded field. Upon arrival, Kelly's pimp and associate are made to dig two graves, presumably for the girls. However, Stuart decides that the girls are the victims in this episode and decides instead to kill Kelly's pimp and associate. The film ends with Kelly and Joanne arriving at Joanne's grandma's house in Devon. Kelly watches from a distance as the girl and the grandmother hug, then turns away.

    Final comment: London to Brighton is a 2006 award-winning British film. Director Balaji K Kumar adopted this movie and presented in his way.

    Pros: The way of presentation, screenplay and direction.

    Cons: No credits has been given to the original.
