Vijay Superum Pournamiyum is a 2019 Indian Malayalam-language film written and directed by Jis Joy, starring Asif Ali, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Balu Varghese and Aju Varghese in the lead roles. It is the official remake of 2016 Telugu film Pelli Choopulu. The film has musical score composed by Prince George. It was released on 2019 January 11 to highly positive reviews from the critics as well as the audience.

The story is of young people of today, but unlike quite a few of its contemporaries, Vijay Super does not feel the need to force certain traits movie-makers think young people should have. Even the love stories are passed off as the most ordinary happenings in a most ordinary conversation. Vijay – Asif Ali – meets Pournami – Aishwarya Lekshmi – for a pennu kaanal, a ceremony that Indian families have for arranged marriages, when the prospective groom's people go to see the prospective bride and her family, and fix an alliance.

Quite a few coincidences put Vijay and Pournami in a room for a couple of hours, where even when they are both not keen about the arranged marriage and admit it to each other, they end up sharing their life stories. That felt most natural – the comfort of being able to tell your story to an absolute stranger who is not going to judge you and probably will not be in your life after this. Pournami tells Vijay as much – “You won’t always get someone to listen to you these days, so talk.”

Pournami’s lines are so beautifully real like that – no big literature in it, no philosophies that many directors feel compelled to put into their heroines’ dialogues. Just everyday lines, and Aishwarya Lekshmi, in her fourth film, seems to have mastered this art of easily and effortlessly conveying her part. Only question is if her characters so far appear a lot like each other – not their stories, but their setting. Mostly middle or upper middle-class, strong headed, bold, city-bred characters. And here, Aishwarya as Pournami is a bit of a contrast – she wants to start a business, be successful, and at the same time, lets her parents decide her future.
