I recently had the opportunity of watching this movie a second time. I recalled watching this movie a few months after its release and being disappointed. However, when I saw this movie again just a few days back, I felt I had seen far worse movies. Aadhi was, by comparison, a simple and entertaining movie.
I am not a die-hard fan of Vijay; but I do have enjoyed some of his movies like Kaavalan, Pokkiri and Nanban. But, I was pretty sure that this movie must have been good for the die-hards as Vijay was simply sparkling in this role. At times, you get the impression of over-acting, but you tend to realize that this is one of the few movies where Vijay exhibits that he is capable of emoting at a level par to Suriya and Vikram. The scene where he challenges the villain at his home is homage to that.
The movie's premise is simple: Anjali (Trisha) is a college student who is shown enjoying a pleasant time and portrayed as a sweetheart. When a man (Devan) comes and talks to her, she suddenly stabs him before he is shot dead by her uncle (Nasser). This opening scene sets the tone of the movie and prepares us for some interesting watch. Anjali studies in the same college as Aadhi (Vijay) a happy young guy who lives with his foster parents (Manivannan and Seetha) and his foster sister.Anjali is trying to wipe out RDX (Sai Kumar) and his gang who were responsible for the mass murder of Anjali's parents and extended family of which only she and her uncle were the survivors. What she doesn't know is that Aadhi is her cousin and also a survivor of the murder. And he is on his own vendetta to wipe out RDX. What follows is a riveting tale of revenge.
While the story is slightly predictable, some twists are pretty appreciable. Ultimately, the movie is just an entertainer. Go for it, if you don't hate Vijay and you might find a movie more enjoyable than recent hits such as Kanthasaamy, Venghai or Billa 2..
