Velayutham is interesting but has a regular mass-masala characteristics at some points.Iam unable to give a detailed review(I watched this film long back and forgot),but I can say only this,Vijay has given a much better performance than his previous flicks.
The film has some minus like slow movement of story in the first half,some scenes which requires some suspension of disbelief and Vijay speaking politics.
Sample this scene in the film:
Villagers: If you talk to him like that,you are going to get it soon.
Do you know next is our rule ie government only?
Vijay aka Velayutham: Please shut up!!
Now if only director Raja had removed that scene,I would not have been angry!!
It is a known that Vijay has an issue with Sun Pictures and wants to get into politics!!But it is not fair that he presents his political ambitions in a film while his character was getting strongly established!!
It looks like this whole film had been made to satisfy his fans.But for others,it is not a disappointment!!
The message in the climax(similar to that of Anniyan),Vijay's performance overall,decent screenplay and music elevates this film to a can watch!!
Rating : 2.5/5.
