What happens when the two come together. Watch Velayudham for it. The movie features Vijay is a super hero role. Giving him company are Genelia and Hanshika. Produced by Aascar V Ravichandran, it has music by Vijay Anthony. Check out the Tamil Movie Review-Velayudham Movie Review
Bharathi (Genalia) is a journalist on a mission. She fights against evil and corrupt men in the society. She reports on Home Minister’s links with ultras and their plans to disturb peace in Tamilnadu by planting bombs. She incurs their wrath and she becomes their target. Meanwhile she leaves a note where she creates an artificial character Velyudham, whom she says will end the menace of corrupt and greedy.
Interestingly there is one Velayudham (Vijay), a milkman in a village living a happy life with his sister (Saranya Mohan). Videhi (Hanshika Motwani) has a crush on him. She is his cousin in the village and the rural belle is desperately in love with Velayudham. One day velayudham comes to Chenani to withdraw cash from a chit fund firm and he comes across Bharathi. It is now obvious that Velayudham will take up the challenge and he turns the messiah of the masses from here. Its action and revenge from here.
Vijay is back to his hot favorite genre mass entertainers with Velayudham. He is at his best and carries the film to the winning post. Vijay has sported a pumped-up physique in the movie and it’s a treat for all his fans to watch him. His passion towards the film can be seen on-screen and yet again proves he is the king of masses.
Hansika is cute and confident. She added the ample glamour quotient for the mass entertainer and her chemistry with the lead star is cool. The actress for the first time tried her part on comedy and she has done well.
Genelia has come out of her regular bubbly roles and tried out a serious role as a journalist. She has done justice to the role.
Santhanam yet again makes us enjoyable with his wise cracks bringing the roof down. Saranya Mohan in the role of Vijay’s sister is perfect.
Other supporting cast Abhimanyu Singh, Suri, Shayaji Shinde, Manivannan added their value to the film.
Vijay Anthony’s music and the peppy songs add strength to the film, while Priyan’s cinematography gives it solidity. he captures the chase, fights well. Raja deserves all applause for weaving an interesting film, though inspired by telugu hit Azad.
Vijay and Raja team up to give an unpretentious entertainer. It is a good movie to see relish and enjoy. Vijay at his best, it has everything to appease movie -buffs. But the lacunae is its length. Specially needless songs stuffed in between which breaks the flow.
