Vikram Vedha - Movie Review

Verdict – “Dark, Deep, Raw and Fine Filmmaking!”

Vikram (R. Madhavan) is a rough, fierce cop whose only aim is to eliminate a ruthless gangster. He is married to Priya (Shraddha Srinath), who is a lawyer and also has a soft side in his heart despite being merciless. Madhavan is a perfect choice for the role as he pulls it off with ease with his evergreen charm and screen presence.

Vedha (Vijay Sethupathy) is the most feared North Madras Gangster, who is on a run as Vikram and his special team of police wants to encounter him and his gangster-friends. Vijay Sethupathy as Vedha is the latest baddie in the tinsel town. With his look, laugh, comical body language, dialogue delivery, Vijay Sethupathy produces what’s needed utmost for the characters evil outlook and joins the elite club of baddies in Tamil Cinema. 

Pushkar and Gayathri are serious couple goals. The director duo is only three films old yet the never failed to impress us with their narrative style and direction. Coming up with a not so new base story, however, the way in which they have recited is what that matters the most. 

Bringing the mythological characters Vikramaditya and Vedhalam as the main leads characters, every time Vikram catches Vedha, the latter narrates a story from his life and ask him for his judgment on what he should have done during that situation. But Vikram realizes only later that Vedha has given him hints through the story he had narrated to him.
In the end, backed up by sheer acting skills of Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathy, top notch technical brilliance and intense background score, Vikram Vedha is definitely one of the best movies to be released this year and one of the finest crime thriller made in Tamil Cinema Industry with deep characters. 

My Rating – 4/5
Grade – A (The best one around!)

Naanum Rowdy Dhaan – Movie Review

Verdict: "A visually rich film which is totally enjoyable in every aspect." 

‘Pondy’ Pandi’s (Vijay Sethupathy) only aim from childhood is to become a rowdy. But his Mother (Radhikaa) who is a cop, takes all necessary steps to make him a Police.  Without his mother’s knowledge, he becomes a self-made ruffian with his friends. 

Meanwhile, he meets Kadhambari (Nayanthara), who seeks his help only to know that he is actually not a rowdy.  Eventually, they both fall in love and he learns that her only aim is to eradicate ‘Gilli” Vallavan (R.Parthiban). Why does she want to kill him? Do they both succeed in killing a terrific rowdy? The movie answers these questions in the climax. 

Vijay Sethupathy gives a great come-back with Naanum Rowdy Dhaan. His dialogue delivery, body language looks enjoyable than his earlier movies.  Teaming up with RJ Balaji, both of them make us laugh our socks off. 

Nayanthara steals the shows with her looks. She had given her career-best performance as a deaf girl and looks gorgeous and extremely adorable in this movie and her costumes and hair style add to her beauty. With back-to-back movies, Nayanthara ruled Kollywood this year. 

R.Parthiban as the cool dude villain makes us freak out and laugh. He was at his best in the climax scenes. All other actors did their assigned jobs to the best of their ability. 

Director Vignesh Sivan comes up with a simple and predictable plot and makes it in an entertaining way. With the help of all technicians, he doesn’t bore you in any of the scenes. George C. Williams’s cinematography is top-notch. The movie looks colorful through his lens and has captured the locals of Pondicherry in a vibrant way. 

Naanum Rowdy Dhaan’s biggest positive and backbone is Anirudh’s music. The songs were well placed, euphonious and ear pleasing. The song ‘Thangamey’ had been well choreographed and Sid Sriram deserves applause for the soulful rendition of the song “Ennai Matrum Kaadhaley”. 

Finally, Naanum Rowdy Dhaan is a perfect movie to watch with your family and friends this weekend.  This movie will surely entertain you in these festival holidays and worth your money too.

My Rating: 3.5/5
Grade: B+ (Perfect Weekend Pick!)
