Bale Pandiya is a 2010 Tamil action comedy film written and directed by Siddharth Chandrasekhar. It stars Vishnu Vishal and Piaa Bajpai in the lead roles. The film was released on 3 September 2010 to mixed reviews. The script is broadly based on the original "Bale Pandiya"
AKP (R Amarendran) and his two sidekicks (one of which is a driver that does a full 360 degrees flip from the car window and opens the door allowing AKP to exit from the passenger seat) arrive at a club. The group walks into the club and AKP and his two sidekicks start showing their power before reaching their table. A finger with a ring is placed on the table/
Pandian (Vishnu Vishal) considers himself unlucky. All his efforts to come up in life end on wrong side. He approaches contract killer AKP and urges to kill him. A shocked AKP is initially hesitant. Soon he decides to give him some time. Hence he gives Pandian some money and entrusts him with a job of turning a human bomb, a job that he should execute within 20 days.
But life changes for Pandian after he meets Vaishnavi (Piaa). They fall in love with each other. When Pandian decides to go tell AKP that he would rather prefer to live, he gets a rude shock. AKP and his men are found murdered. Now the blame falls on Pandian. Meanwhile, Vaishnavi gets kidnapped by a gang for a big deal. It’s chaos and confusion everywhere, before Pandian sets things right.

Guest appearances in Happy song by: (in alphabetical order)
The film marked the directorial debut of leading advertising designer Siddharth Chandrasekhar. The filming was held at Phuket, Pondicherry and Chennai. The song "Happy" featured 20 playback singers in cameo appearances.
Behindwoods rated the film 2 out of 5 and mentioned "The attempts of director Siddharth appear fresh and there are touches of his ad world experience in a few scenes. [..] However, Siddharth has not held the screen play tightly through out and loses his grasp especially towards the end. The film seems to drag on with a meandering narration in the latter half". Rediff wrote "Sidharth Chandrasekar's debut film hits the right note at certain places, and it certainly has its funny moments. If it had sustained that momentum in the second half, Bale Pandiya would have been even better". Sify mentioned that "The trouble with Bale Pandiya is that the director just do not know whether to make a spoof or a comedy with songs and action, in the process he falls between two stools" and called it "half baked and contrived".
