#KadaisiVivasayi 4/5. Brilliant. @dirmmanikandan’s ode to last farmer standing and how agriculture itself is dying out. Late Nallandi as Mayandi the farmer & @VijaySethuOffl as a vagabond & devotee of Lord Muruga are outstanding along with Raichel Rebecca as judge. Heartwarming. pic.twitter.com/1IkRbO2UBe

Kadaisi Vivasayi Star Cast & Makers
What makes this village drama interesting is that the lead role in the film is played by a 86 years old debutant with no background in the acting field, Nallandi.
Nallandi is also a farmer and as the film is based on the village life and farmer, he was roped in for the male lead role of an old farmer.
We rarely see this type of thing in the film industry, but this shows the dedication of the makers of this movie towards giving a message to society about farmers and their problems.
Along with appearing in extended cameo roles of Ramaiah, Vijay Sethupathi also bankrolled this project under the banner of his own production company Vijay Sethupathi Production.
Popular Tamil actor and comedian Yogi Babu will also be seen in the pivotal role in this film.
