Pagalil Oru Iravu touched upon a delicate issue and still couldn’t comprehend how they took the movie to the theatres. It was wonderfully handled by IV Sasi and Ilaiyaraaja’s music gave ample support. A woman unknowingly gets pregnant because of an unknown guy (the scene/song is well crafted that you will not be able to understand whether it was rape or consensual). The mother decides to abort the child and she slowly forgets that she bore a child. Post-marriage (with another man), she gets pregnant and suffers a miscarriage. The miscarriage pushes her into retrograde hysteria and all her past comes back to haunt her.
Although, the movie takes a judgemental note in certain parts, the movie definitely touched the most delicate issues like premarital sex. The songs are quite sensuous too and Thottam Konda Rasave is not an exception. The ecstasy of the beats and the lively wind instrument interludes will transport you to another world. This one matches the brilliance of “Aasaiya Kaathula Thoothu” from Jhonny.
