But it is the powerful presence of Vijay Sethupathi that has you completely hooked. He has got every expression, every movement right, even the silly grin and the frequent coughing fits. The well-oiled, neatly parted hair, discoloured teeth with a distinct paunch and thick glasses complete the look with scarcely a reminder of the young actor. Definitely a role of a lifetime for this versatile actor.
Like the candy it is named after, Orange Mittai with its sweet and sour moments, is a beautifully narrated film with just the right balance of humour and emotions.
