Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaaran Tamil Movie Review
Play while you work
Murugan (Vishnu Vishal) is the sidekick of a tailor-turned-MLA Jacket Jankiraman (Robo Shankar). The legislator is a loyalist of a minister and the rapport between the two irk the latter’s nephew (Ravi Maria) and another politico (Aadukalam Naren).
Murgan meets Archana (Nikki Galrani) and falls for her instantly. Archana’s only aim is to become a police officer, and her father gives Rs 10 Lakh to Vishnu, requesting him to land his daughter a job in the police department.
Even as Vishnu tries for the job through Jacket Janakiraman, the MLA loses his memory in a mishap. More than Rs 10 lakh, what is now more important is the details of the location of Rs 500 crore (minister’s money), which is known to Janakiraman alone.
If your choice for the weekend entertainment is an over-the-top comedy and masala entertainer, Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaran may be the right choice.
Once again, director Ezhil has dished out a mindless comedy, which relies heavily on funny one-liners (which may not work with all sections) and lacks logic. But who are we to complain as long as there are producers and audience to back this style of him?
Vishnu Vishal (the producer and the protagonist) has underplayed himself and immense space has been given to comedians, especially Soori and Robo Shankar. Rajendran is top notch in the climax. Nikki Galrani has come up with a credible performance.
Technically Sathya’s music is a big strength for the movie, while cinematography and editing are strictly functional. If your only expectation is to laugh out loud and get entertained, go to a theatre showing VVV.
