This Sivaji is no boss
Sivaji (Vikram Prabhu), is a cab driver in Puducherry. He falls in love with Anjali (Shamlee), who eventually reciprocates the same.
As life goes on smoothly, he is faced with a situation where he has to collect huge money for his sister’s daughter, who has to undergo a surgery
After repeated attempts to procure it go in vain, he falls into the trap of a money mafia gang led by a wicked man (John Vijay). In the process, he ends up losing all his money.
What happens after the hero realises that he has been cheated and does he get his money back, forms the rest of the story.
Despite finding a potential knot, director Ganesh Vinayak is only partly successful in making it into a full-fledged movie. There are some good scenes, but they get diluted in the flow.
Vikram Prabhu, who desperately needs a break, delivers a strong performance, but he has to improve in romantic scenes. This is certainly not the perfect launch pad for (Baby) Shamili.
Comedy portions by Yogi Babu and Robo Shankar are good, while John Vijay oozes menace as villain. There are many Thala Thalapathi references throughout the movie.
D Imman’s has scored well in songs (especially ‘Soppana Sundari…’), but misses out in background score. Overall, Veera Sivaji is like neither good nor bad. If you still have power and other problems in your home post the Vardah Cyclone, you may head to a theatre screening Veera Sivaji.
