Actor Vikram who is well-versed in turning art movies into commercial flicks, has given a full and full commercial movie, ‘Rajapaattai’.

Vikram, a gym boy carries dreams of becoming a cine star and acts in small roles in movies.  When encountering tight corner he meets an elderly person K. Viswanath.  He develops acquaintance with Viswanath and makes him stay with him.  Viswanath gives tips for romance between Vikram and Deeksha Seth.  But there is a tinge of sadness in Viswanath’s life.  The fact remains that his son Avinash usurps the orphanage that Viswanath runs in the name of his wife.  Avinash’s elder sister Ranganayaki alias Sana, a political icon and notorious for land fraud plans to snatch away the orphanage from him.  Vaappa alias Pradeep Rawat stands by her side in her connivance.  The story of ‘Rajapaattai’ is about how Vikram saves Viswanath from his son and how he redeems the land from fraudsters Sana and Vaappa Pradeep. 

The film’s story

The story is okay until the juncture where gym boy Vikram is on a searching spree to become a hero in Kollywood.  But turning into a CBI officer, and then a Sikh officer to get the land back from villains  is very much dramatized.  Also emerging in 17 roles in one song and rest of the film scenes is in no way related to the story, and it seems like he plays hide and seek with the director.

There are inadequate scenes for Deeksha Seth and there are several irrelevant thrusting in of dance with Reema Sen and Shreya. They seemed to have tried to make the movie a commercial flick by such inclusions and spent money on the movie for nothing.  One can comment about Deeksha’s action only after seeing her next movie.  She has very meager scope in this movie.  The other characters as K. Viswanath, Thambi Ramaiah, Pradeep Rao, Avinash, Sana and Aruldoss have played their roles well.


The big strength for the movie is Yuvan’s music and Madhi’s cinematography.  Director Suseendran who did realistic and successful flicks as ‘Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu’ and ‘Azhagar Saamiyin Kudhirai’ seems to have faltered with ‘Rajapaattai’.

The land fraud prevalent in Tamil Nadu has been pictured in a playful manner.  One could say the movie is okay if it had been taken more thrillingly.  But the fact is otherwise.  

‘Rajapaattai falters a bit.
