Vivek, after having completed over 25 years in Tamil cinema, now takes the avatar of hero in Naan Than Bala. Though he made a similar attempt in Solli Adipen, few years ago, the movie could not see the light of the day.

Naan Than Bala is uncharacteristic of Vivek for it is a serious film sans humor by him. His accomplice Cell murugan and Mayilsamy takes care of comedy. Venkatraj, Swetha, Thennavan and Sujatha form part of the cast. 

The film, produced by J a Lawrence for SSS Entertainments, has been written and directed by R Kannan, a former associate of National award winning filmmaker Bala.

The movie speaks a pious Iyengar temple priest (Vivek) who takes care of his old parents. He spends like life in a temple. Life is going smooth until he meets a Sourashtrian girl ( Swetha) who sells eatables in the same area He comes across a paid killer and his life changes. What happens then forms the crux.

Vivek does it with panache. He seems to have undergone extensive training to get the act of Brahmin boy right. Swetha as Saurashtrian girl is apt for the role, while Venkatraj sparkles as paid killer. 

Kannan has managed to get the best out of his artistes. An intense film, the movie marks the fight between peace and war. The detailing of Brahmin family reeling under poverty is well etched-out. 

Though a slow start, the movie slowly picks up steam and the last 20 minutes is an interesting watch.

Vivek at his best
