'Pandhayam' means 'bet' in English.

Not only the director, cast and crew have bet against themselves but also ensured that they end up losers. The movie looks like one that suffered a double Rip Van Winkle slumber since the 70s sans the vintage quality of that era.

In a nutshell, it is all about a youth, played by Nithin Sathya taking a trip to Chennai to see movie icon Vijay who is allowed to be himself.

One of his Sathya's friends gets bumped off by a don portrayed by a hamming Prakash Raj.

So the bumpkin manages to wangle the don's daughter enacted by Sindhu Tolani.

One wonders why Sathya who got attracted critical acclaim in 'Chennai 600028' did this bomb.

Sindhu Tolani fails to impress. Vijay's presence in a guest role fails to revive the film. The less said about Vijay Anthony's music the better.
