Atharvaa, kayal
A. Sarkunam

Atharva after a some average outings is back with Chandi Veeran. The movie directed by Vaagai Sooda Vaa Sargunam is produced by Bala's B Studios.

Expectations are high for it is Bala's home production after Mysskin's Pisasu. The movie is a rural tale and revolves around Atharva.

Bala seems to have developed a special liking for Atharva for him recently directing him in Paradesi. Now comes his next featuring him in his home production. Kayal Anandhi plays the heroine. 

Sargunam has proved his mettle handling such rural script with consummate ease in Vaagai Sooda Vaa and expectations soar high with Chandi Veeran. Does the movie satisfy the appetite of the movie-goers? Answer is yes to a major extent thanks to Atharva's splendid show.


fun-loving guy who wanders around with no purpose is what Atharva's role is. He comes across a girl. He is a man with principal. There is romance, sentiment and romance in his life.

As usual he comes across trouble not just in his life but also in his romance. He turns a true Chandi Veeran. How he overcomes all odds form the crux. 


Atharva is the high point of the film. He does it with ease and eland. The body language and looks tailor made for the character. Romance as well as humour sits well on him.

He is more energetic and identifies himself well with the role. Equally impressive is Anandhi. The Kayal actress has done a super show. She matches the role well.

Her performance is good. Due credit should be given to her for coming out with spontaneous emotions. At places, she manages to woo one with her very cute expressions. 

Technical details

The biggest strength for Chandi Veeran is Arunagiri's music. The songs are melodious. They don't allow lyrics to be dominated by the sound of music. Also the BGM at many places provide fillip to the story and script.

A job well-done. Equally impressive is T E Kishore's editing. The late National-award winning editor has done it with crisp. The scenes are coherent and adds momentum to the script.


It is a director's film with characters not loud or vociferous. Sargunam has executed the sequences well. Thanks to a creative producer in Bala, he has managed to render his best. Three cheers to Chandi Veeran crew.

The movie has some dull moments in second half. But that is compensated by effective narration. A winner on hand is Chandi Veeran.

A bravado shows
