Nandhan Ram is a honest and determined boy and is head over heels for his fellow classmate Venba, who plainly rejects his affection. Yet, Nandhan believes that he could make her fall for him and that she does harbour some sort of feelings for him.
In the mean time, KS Ravikumar is their school headmaster and Nandhan's father. He gets to know about his son's behaviour and advices him to stay away from Venba and to focus on his education for now. He also stated that they can talk about this after he is more matured and grown up.
Nandhan initially listens to his father but ends up chasing behind Venba, and tries to woo her. In one such instance, he holds Venba's hands and demands an answer to why she doesn't like him. Unfortunately RK Suresh, her brother, witnesses this and makes this into a big issue by arranging a meeting in front of all the village people. They publicly question Venba's involvement in this affair, to which she outrightly denies it and says that she has never encouraged Nandhan to follow her.
This earns a bad remark for KS Ravikumar's reputation, and out of guilt and shame he succumbs to a sudden heart attack. Yet, Nandhan stubbornly refuses to let go of Venba, and still tries to make her accept him. The rest of the plot revolves around how Nandhan's determination affects his and Venba's life and whether she accepts him.
Nandhan Ram, has delivered a decent performance in his debut film. He perfectly looks and behaves
like a school going boy, with an undying crush for his fellow classmate really well. Likewise, Venba has also pulled off her character as convincingly as possible. Ace filmmaker and actor KS Ravikumar as always has done complete justice to his character. Actors RK Suresh, Thambi Ramayya, Urvashi and Ponvannan play pivotal roles, and all of them have delivered a decent performance.
Debutant Vasudev Bhaskar has attempted to make a film which focuses on school days tragic love story. It may not be a fresh concept, but the direction is appreciable. Few instances from the first half of the film fills us with warm nostalgic memories, and takes a sentimental nose dive with the second half as it is filled with various shades of sorrow.
Over all the screenplay could have been trimmed a bit, and the director could've gone a little easy on the sentiment department as it seemed to be a little too filmy for today's taste of cinema. Vijay Narayanan has provided the tunes and his background scores are better compared to the songs. Vinoth Kumar's cinematography skills come to the fore and has shot well.
In short, Pallip Paruvathilae, is a touching love story.
