Varalaru Became history made movie
15 November 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

VARALARU is a great movie, and lot of hard work in that film, P.C.Sriram, work is excellent, and A.R.Rehman, did a wonderful job.All songs are feast....The Director, K.S.Ravikumar, has add his stamp from the first scene itself. A fast-paced narration with some interesting incidents weaved in, which doesn't allow you much time to ponder on the flaws, and which camouflages the inadequacies of the script, makes 'Varalaru' engaging viewing. And the soul of the film is undoubtedly Ajit, who performs his three diverse characters with panache. The actor has put in much effort, demarcating each role with such finesse and understanding that it is a sheer delight watching him on screen. There is Shiva, the ageing business tycoon, bound to his wheelchair, sharing a strong bonding with his son Vishnu. Indulgent, while Vishnu whiles away his time with his cronies taking life easy. But then suddenly Vishnu starts behaving out of character, his drunken bouts and acts causing the father much shame and embarrassment. And when Vishnu professes to remember nothing of what he had done, the father takes him to a psychiatrist.With 'Varalaru' Ajit has bounced back with a vengeance and re-established his credentials as an actor who can deliver if given the right role and projected suitably.Then appears Jeeva, Vishnu's look-alike, and the cause of Vishnu's woes. Jeeva's target is Shiva, and his motive vengeance for the wrong done to his mother decades back. The flashback episodes has Ajit playing a classical dancer, and it is here that the actor scores. With his perfect body language to go with the character of the dancer, and the feminine mannerisms he adopts to go with it,Ajith cuts a fascinating picture. His classical dance number is performed with such finesse that it takes you by sheer surprise.
