After Thoonga Nagaram and Sigaram Thodu, filmmaker Gaurav is out with an racy thriller in Ippadai Vellum. As the title suggests, it is a movie with action all the way. And Udhayanidhi, who took to rural role in his last Saravanan Irukka Bayamen, is back to play a city youth, who has a mission to achieve.

The movie, bankrolled by Lyca Productions, has Manjima Mohan of Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada fame plays the female lead. Raadhika, Soori, Daniel Balaji, RK Suresh and others play supporting roles. Ippadai Vellum has music by D Imman,while Richard M Nathan cranks the camera and Praveen KL has handles editing.

Ippadai Vellum is an edge-of-the-seat thriller about software professional Madhusudhan (Udhayanidhi Stalin). He is a person who believes that problems can be fixed by being smart. He leads a simple life with his friend (Soori), but a difficult situation lands him in trouble.

Now he has the ins on his shoulders to set things right. Inspired by the words of his valiant mother (Radhika), a bus driver, Madhusdhan sets out to fight goons (RK Suresh and Daniesl Balaji). The chase begins.

Now a brainy Madhusudhan takes the task in hsi hand and overcomes the challenges and obstacles in his own way using his brain.Udhayanidhi plays the lead well. Post Manithan, he seems to have matured as an actor. His body language and dialogue delivery is good.

He does well in action scenes too. Manjima Moahan is adequate, while Soori plays an extended role. Both Daniesl Balaji and RK Suresh do their act well. Daniel Balaji as the menacing baddie is the highlight of the movie.

Radhika plays an adorable mom well.Music by Imman adds strength and his melodies are catchy. Richard Nathan's camera is bright and beautiful. 

However has Gaurav concentrated on making the screenplay tight in second part and ensured that few cliches are avoided, Ippadai Vellum would have been different.
