Debutante director Pradeep Sundar has interestingly filmed love and the emotional sentiments that prevail in a rural family. In the second half of the movie, he has taken a knot based on the tsunami calamity, which has left a painful mark in people's minds even after eleven years. Hero Shaji Surendran has portrayed his character with ease. The actor successfully evokes sympathy from the audience, especially in the scenes where he feels desperate about his child. Silanga's performance is impressive, and she turns a symbol of sacrifice when she gives up her love for the well-being of another woman.
The rest of the supporting cast such as the village big shot Azhagu, Surendran's younger brother, his lover Saina and the child artiste baby Biyono have done their parts well. A special mention to the film's producer Anil Kottarakkara, who also appears as a cop in the movie, and adds pride to the character with his looks and acting. Crane Manohar who appears as a thief offers good laughs. Cinematographer V.K.Pradeep has portrayed the beauty of the seaside village, along with the background of blue waters very well. The song 'Mazhai Nindrum' written by Velmurugan and composed by Muhammad Ali is impressive.
On the whole, 'Irandu Manam Vendum' is a clean family drama, which is worth the watch!
