Movie: Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaaran
Cast: Vishnu, Nikki Galrani, Soori
Music: C Sathya
Editor: Ananda Lingakumar
What is it about: The film revolves around 4 central characters a politician (Robo Shankar), his right hand (Vishnu Vishal), right hand’s best friend (Soori) and an aspiring police officer (Nikki Galrani). The politician meets with an accident and loses his memory, and his memory is quite important as he holds information on where 500 crores are hidden from the minister. What happens next forms the crux of the story directed by Ezhil.
Why it’s disappointing: The film just moves randomly with no logic, because an out and out commercial film doesn’t require any logic. The film has a comedy which works in parts and sometimes gets quite boring and dragged. The performances were meagre nothing great, was quite surprised to see Vishnu Vishal doing a script of this sort and have also produced the film.
Robo Shankar is fine in few parts, but in most looks quite overcooked. The rest of the supporting cast followed the steps of the central characters and gets acquainted on the stupidity.
The films music was very average nothing great, clichéd songs and the one which was forced before the climax was not required at all. Like their promotional video stated, they have compromised to dish a mindless commercial film.
What to watch out for: Once again Soori saves the day after INA. His character has come out really well, which makes you laugh hard and forget the big pot holes in the film. He gave a commendable performance. And as Pushpa’s husband he was insanely funny. His counterpart in the film played by Reshma was a good one.
Even though the role was not that meaty, Nikki in VVV tries to score with her looks and a quirky performance, at least she got some extra screen space to act in this film.
The cinematography by Shakthi was pretty good, which was well edited by Ananda Lingakumar.
Verdict: Ezhil made sure the audience doesn’t have time to complaint, so he rushed the events so close to each other that, the film is over by the time you realize. The film has a comedy track which is not consistent. It has its moments of comedy which genuinely cracks you. Worth a watch, just don’t go with a hope of getting quality entertainment.
