Vedigundu Murugesan (transl. Bomb Murugesan}}) is a 2009 Tamil-language comedy film directed by A. Govindamoorthy. It stars Pasupathy and Jyothirmayi.[1] The music was composed by Dhina. The film released on 17 July 2009 and received positive reviews for Vadivelu's superb comedy in this film.

Plot[edit]

The movie is set in the village of Kizhrajakularaman in Rajapalayam district. Vedigundu Murugesan (Pasupathy) is a small-time guy who breaks the law occasionally but is a Good Samaritan in the eyes of the local judge (Nirmala Perisamy) as he provides shelter and looks after a mentally challenged girl named Ponni (Deepa Shankar), who was deserted by her parents.

Parralel narration is the comedy track of Alert Aarumugam (Vadivelu), a petty and clever thief.

Murugesan earns his living fetching water for factories and hotels in his village. A lady constable named Nachiyar (Jyothirmayi), who rubs Murugesan the wrong way, falls in love with him due to his humanitarian nature and the will to help others. Soon, Ponni is raped by one of the baddies, leading to the final climax in the hospital.

Critical reception[edit]

Rediff wrote:"Despite its many failings and loop-holes, Vedigundu Murugesan does work at times chiefly because the climax and screenplay try to rise above the ordinary".[3] Indiaglitz wrote:"There's a certain deftness that you need to have, to handle both comedy and sentiment in the same vein. Moorthy, whose 'Vedigundu Murugesan' has just released, definitely displays that".[4] Behindwoods wrote:"there is nothing much to rave about the story and ditto with the performances and the direction. Awful dialogues, in the guise of comedy only tests your patience further as you are busy stifling yawns".[5]
