The film’s album has a total of nine tracks to its credit. The film’s first look was released by Arvind Swamy in February 2017. The movie’s music has got good response with one being a chartbuster.

Featuring music composed by Karthik Raja, Padaiveeran will have a theatrical release in February 2018.

Padaiveeran Story: Padaiveeran is the story of a local village youngster who upon wasting most of his youth decides to do something with his life; something that will not demand a lot of effort from him but fetch him a lot of money. He decides to become a Police Man. After a lot of efforts, he becomes one only to realise that he has been posted in his own hometown as part of a local crisis management team following a breakout of violence caused by local issues.
The hero is torn between looking out for his people and doing what feels morally right to him. How the issue changes the hero and who becomes victorious in the end forms the climax of Padaiveeran.
Padaiveeran Review: The character that Vijay Yesudas has shown with the movie is good. The story selection along with the script is well written. The background music of the movie is okay. Vijay Yesudas is seen in mass look which is apt for the village background. The police characterization was shown well with a little local attitude.
Padaiveeran Movie Rating: 3/5
Verdict: All in all, Padai Veeran movie happens to be a routine old-fashioned communal violence based film. But we believe that director Dhaya has more potentials to make a much more efficient film than this one, which is a good one for a starter.
