Pandhayam (Tamil: பந்தயம்; English: Bet) is a Tamil film directed by S. A. Chandrasekhar starring Nithin Sathya, Sindhu Tolani. Vijay did a guest role as himself.


The story- A local thug and criminal who kills people like mosquitoes Masanam (Prakash Raj) slowly rises up the ranks to be a Minister. We have Shakthivel (Nithin Sathya) a die-hard fan of actor Vijay who studies in a city college. He falls in love with the wicked minister's sister Thulasi (Sindhu Tolani) and challenges him (he has a reason for that) and a cat and mouse game ensues. What follows is a series of incidents between the two that leads to a melodramatic climax.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Behindwoods wrote "There is no singular theme or accent in Pandhayam and the film abounds in illogical narrations."[3] Rediff wrote "Watch Pandhayam if you've challenged your friends about sitting through a ridiculous movie. Even then, you might end up losing."[4]
