The film Orange Mittai opens with the death anniversary of Sathya's (Ramesh Thilak) father. Having lost his father exactly a year ago, Sathya a paramedic, receives a call from an elderly person, who lets him know that he requires an ambulance as soon as possible.
Sathya, along with another paramedic, rushes to the old man's house in an ambulance and helps Kailasam (Vijay Sethupathi) to board the vehicle. In the process, he learns that the old man is not fighting for his life as claimed by him earlier, but he is a heart patient nevertheless.
As these three men begin their journey in the ambulance, Kailasam's grumpy and obstinate nature causes trouble to the paramedics and the course of their journey changes drastically.
What is the past of Kailasam? Why he irritates the paramedics? Who is Kailasam? forms the rest of the story.
As expected, Vijay Sethupathi stands out in his new avatar. His mannerisms as a crabby old man will make you laugh and cry all at the same time. Kudos to the actor for taking up such a simple yet complicated role and to deliver what is required in a powerful way.
His willingness to experiment will only add credibility to his acting career. Ramesh Thilak comes up with yet another believable performance. He has even tried his hand at sentiment in this flick.
Orange Mittai is technically too strong. Biju Viswanath's unique way of narrating a story has worked like a charm in Orange Mittai. His cinematography too is above par as he has tried refreshingly new angles which elevates certain scenes. His editing too is as impressive as it can get. Justin Prabhakaran's scored best music for Orange Mittai.
