Synopsis: A young man and woman running away from their homes are taken to a police station, where they become spectators to the goings-on at the place.

Movie Review: There are films that are made up entirely of moments and no story as such but Vindhai is a film that neither has a story nor moments. The film begins with Karthi (Mahendra) and Kavya (Manisha) running away from their homes and boarding a lorry. The action then cuts to a police station where the two are brought in. The cop suspects them to be eloping lovers and we keep waiting for something to happen and move this plot forward, but trust me, nothing happens — not for the next 20 minutes, not before the interval (which is generally when our filmmakers decide to introduce a surprising development) and not even after the interval. We see various people, from a wannabe director and a married couple to a drug peddler, transgenders and prostitutes, come and go without adding anything to the plot. All these characters are played by the likes of Muthukaalai, Scissor Manohar and Nellai Siva, actors who play minor roles in various movies, and they are here as comedians to make us laugh but all they make us do is to scream like one of the characters — Appa... Thaangalada saami, kolrangale !

The only time the film seems to resemble something alive is when MS Bhaskar appears. He plays a Tamil scholar called Tamizh Aayndha Nallon who makes everyone around go mad by talking in chaste Tamil and this is the only moment when we realize what the film could have been if there had been a proper script and better actors. It is only during the final 15 minutes that we get a plot of sorts — two strangers falling in love in a police station! It seems a good idea on paper but the writing and filmmaking is just abysmal that the only vindhai (wonder) here is that the director managed to find someone this gullible to produce this tripe.
