Endrendrum Punnagai (English: Everlasting Smile) is a 2013 Indian Tamil coming-of-age comedy-drama film written and directed by I. Ahmed starring Jiiva, Trisha Krishnan, Vinay Rai and Santhanam.The film has music by Harris Jayaraj and cinematography by R. Madhi.
Three best friends, Gautham, Baby and Sri, decide to stay single all their lives. But Baby and Sri get married and Gautham is left alone until Priya comes into his life.
Gautham (Jiiva), Sree (Vinay Rai) and Baby (Santhanam) are three close, free-spirited friends from school who run an ad agency. Among them Gautham is the son of a painter (Nassar) who has a not-so-good childhood and hence he hates women and also thrusts the same on his two friends. The three friends make a pact that they will remain bachelors forever. But two of them are unable to stick to the promise and friendship sours.
Endrendrum Punnagai starts off with it’s intro to comedy which was hilarious, mostly due to the presence and comeback of Santhanam. The drama and emotions in this film take a turn in a few scenes, and is continued neatly and beautifully throughout the film, supported by the wonderful visuals. In terms of acting, every actor has done their role perfectly. Needless to say about the rest, but actor Vinay’s comeback with a good role in the film raised many eyebrows as his previous films hadn’t been doing very well. Andrea’s role was short yet good, probably a cameo appearance. The technical values were very good overall. The songs are beautiful as well, kudos to Harris Jayaraj. Harris has also improved a lot in his BGM composition. Endrendrum Punnagai is a colorful and delightful film that should be watched by everyone.
