Saravanan, who is now looking to get back everything he has lost meets Krishna at a point when the youngster is thrashing someone. He then tries to rope Krishna to his side saying he will get paid handsomely if he fought in a certain place and time. Although, Krishna rejects Saravanan's request initially, he then agrees to his offer as he is in need of money. Meanwhile, Madhusudhanan now turns his focus towards street fights and plans to run his gambling by offering participants money. Preparations then begin for the street fight to take place in a secluded place.
Krishna strikes success in succession in small fights and then progresses to getting a shot at bigger fights. Many bet against Krishna saying he will lose the fight, but he rises to the top and wins it in knockout style. As Saravanan had borrowed a loan from Aruldoss and has not repaid it yet, Aruldoss threatens to kill Saravanan if he doesn't pay back on time. In the meantime, Madhusudhanan's brother Nithin Sathya informs everyone that his brother is organizing street fights with the intention to cheat everybody. Saravanan then decides to get his money back as he realizes he hasn't lost it in gambling, but has rather been cheated. Nithin Sathya then tells Saravanan he knows where all the money is being kept and he hatches a plan. Although Saravanan agrees to Nithin Sathya's plan in the beginning, Krishna opposes it. Nithin understanding their feelings then joins them. The rest of the plot then revolves around whether Nithin Sathya is able to execute his plan and whether they are able to turn it successful.
Krishna has been on a roll off late choosing scripts that have substance and has once again delivered a commendable performance. A never-before-seen theme in Tamil cinema with street fighting as its core, Krishna has transformed into an action hero with Pandigai. Be it in the action sequences or the romantic scenes with Anandhi, Krishna scores top points. Anandhi charms audiences with her role as she has done so in her previous films so far. Saravanan comes throughout the film and is pivotal to the proceedings of the story. He does justice to his role in scenes where he lost his money or in the ones he makes giant efforts to retrieve them back. In short, it can be said that he has breathed life into his character and lived it on screen. Madhusudhanan has rocked it as the head of the gambling ring and delivers a knockout performance. Aruldoss, who has been reaping laurels over a period of time for the choice of his roles has once again played his character with ease. Although Black Pandi appears throughout the film, his comedy doesn't make a big impression. Karunas, who appears for a relatively short duration goes on to leave everyone in splits with his comedic performance. Nithin Sathya, Arjay, Shanmugarahan have given apt performances for their roles.
Director Feroz has made a film based on a script that has never before been introduced to Tamil audiences and has hit the jackpot right in his debut. He has understood the pulse of the youth and has shot the film in an appealing manner. RH Vikram's background score is excellent and adds more power to the narrative. Aravind's cinematography skills come to the fore, especially in the fight sequences which he has shot in an exceptional manner.
In short, Pandigai is an explosive celebration.
