Vellai Illa Pattadhari 2 / VIP 2 – Movie Review

Verdict: “An Undesirable Sequel”

I still remember it was my first day of college. I bunked the orientation session and watched Vellai Illa Pattadhari-1. Less did I know every engineering graduate would face similar situation at their home when they are unemployed. VIP 1 was very relatable with every engineer’s life. So it became very popular among the youth and the career best film to Dhanush.

With similar expectations, I anticipated for VIP-2. To be honest, it didn’t live up to everyone’s expectations. There wasn’t much of difference between the plots of both the movies except for a gender change in the antagonist role.

Despite the huge letdown in the base story, the movie wasn’t boring much; despite the fact certain scenes make us yawn. Dhanush as usual delivers his casual acting. Even though anyone could have done the role of Kajol yet she gave forth what was required for the role. VIP marks the return of Kajol to Tamil Film Industry nearly after two decades. She was last seen in 1997 hit film ‘Minsara Kanavu’ (Merupu Kalalu).

Cinematography and editing deserves a mention, as they were one of the few positives which I found in this film. Anirudh’s absence was felt very much from the beginning of the movie. I would say the only scenes which received whistles and claps from the audience were the ones which had Anirudh’s background score from VIP 1. I felt that roping in Anirudh once again for this sequel would have made the film even more watchable as the songs and background score were below average.

Directed by Soundarya Rajnikanth, she should have worked well with her brother-in-law to come up with a perfect script for a crowd-pleased movie’s sequel. Failing to do so resulted in a below average fare. Maybe the movie shall please certain people and the actor’s fans, but on the whole it was a huge letdown and spoils the prequels reputation.

My Rating – 2/5
Grade – C (Meh! Probably a rental)
