Tamil movie ‘Vettai’ was released on the eve of Pongal to add up to the joy of fans. Madhavan has made a reentry into the Tamil film industry after considerable gap. Arya has joined hands with Madhavan for this venture. Lingusamy has put aboard Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul as the lead actresses of the movie.Madhavan plays the timid character in the movie. He takes his loving brother Arya as escort when he is assaulted. His father who is a policeman meets with untimely death and the job is passed on to son. The department labels him the inspector. Madhavan is posted in Tuticorin which is under rowdy regime. Madhavan feels jittery about the challenge. Brother Arya stands by Madhavan’s side. The drastic moves Arya makes go into the record as done by Madhavan. The whole area trembles at the sight of timid Madhavan.
Later as Rowdies come to know the fact they thrash Madhavan. Madhavan’s brother Arya charges him when he almost decides police job is not his cup of tea. Lingusamy has added flavor to the movie with romance, family sentiment, and the roar of rowdies. Arya has given tantalizing performance. He has played it well in dance, fight, romance, comedy and in role as American bridegroom. Arya’s delivery is a supporting pillar for the movie.
Madhavan who comes as the elder brother has played it low and won the heart of fans. It is a challenge to play timid character rather than doing an aggressive one. Madhavan has done his part well. His lament after getting blows and his fight scene deliveries are perfect.
Both of the actresses are strength to the storyline. Sameera’s tantalizing performance and Amala Paul’s glamour is definitely feast to fans. Sameera has done it well during her clash with rowdy who comes in search of police husband. Amala Paul has done it well in her lip to lip kiss to Arya which is meant to get into the nerves of American bridegroom.
It is definitely a flaw that there is nothing noteworthy about the climax. During the time when rowdies lay seize on Madhavan’s house, one could predict the climax.
Neerav Sha’s cinematography adds to the festive spree of Pongal occasion.
Music scores by Yuvan Shankar Raja stand as supporting pillars for the movie. The scores make people dance to the tune. Editor Antony has done it well in maintaining the thrill throughout the movie.
One could definitely enjoy the movie ‘Vettai’ if viewed without a logical approach and realistic outlook
Vettai : It of course is a Jolly Pongal!
