Overall, 'Pragamiyam' isn't pragmatic.
The astrologer states that Prathap will never have a normal and peaceful life. In order to prove this astrologer wrong, Prathap takes a number of steps which leads to consequences in the society. What are these consequences? Will Prathap prove the astrologer wrong? Pragamiyam answers these questions.
The title Pragamiyam, is one of the 64 kinds of Arts practiced by Tamils since ancient times. The art of being able to control another person's soul is what it stands for. Director, who's also the hero, has given a subject that's well known to Tamil cinema. But he has failed to showcase the story in a better fashion.
Despite doing two roles, the hero underplays both these roles and hence doesn't convince the audience. There are also two heroines in this film but both their performances look artificial. Even the dialogues spoken by the characters fail to strike the chord. Hence, these characters fail to make an impact.
Overall, Pragamiyam isn't pragmatic.
