The movie is an absolute treat for all Ilayathalapathy Vijay fans.

Vijay's much-awaited film Vettaikaaran has come out with good response among his fans. Though the title makes you remember the yesteryear blockbuster movie, this film is a complete masala entertainer. Debut director Babu Sivan has become a lucky charm for Vijay in this action extravaganza.

THE CHARACTERS Ravi (Vijay), a youngster with lots of dreams about his future, makes his journey from Tuticorin to Chennai. On the way, he sees Suseela (Anushka) and falls in love with her instantaneously. Sayaji Shinde plays the bad cop who does everything to please Devanayakam (Salim Ghouse). Devanayakam uses Sayaji to protect his son Chella (Ravi Shankar) who tries to spoil the life of his fellow classmate Uma (Sanchitha Padukone).

THE PLOT Ravi is a happy youth who somehow finishes his schooling and makes his way to Chennai to achieve his long dream of becoming a cop. His inspiration was Sri Hari, a tough cop he admires from childhood. He joins a Chennai college and makes ends meet by driving an auto rickshaw. Like all masala movies, there is a love angle. Ravi falls in love with Suseela and wins her heart with the help of her grandmother. But life is not smooth sailing for this young man. His chance encounter with Chella changes the course of his life. Chella spoils the life of Uma, who is Ravi's classmate. When he tries to fight Chella, he faces trouble from Chella's father Devanayakam, the major villain of the story. What happens next? How does Ravi face the bad men? Catch Vettaikaaran to know.

THE TECHNIQUE Performance Vijay's recreates his magic on screen, after several not so good performers at the box office. The film's punch dialogues have received a huge round of applause from his fans. Be it romantic scenes or action sequences or comedy track or punch dialogues, Vijay has satisfied his fans immensely in every scene. Anushka plays the glam doll with just a few scenes and a couple of songs.

Director: Babu Sivan Babu Sivan shows no signs of being a newcomer. After playing safe by casting Vijay in this commercial flick, he has done a good job.

Music: Vijay Antony The songs are peppy and are already a big hit. 'En Uchimandai', 'Chinna Thamarai' and 'Puli Urumudhu' are the most popular ones. The picturisation of the songs has added to the charm of the music. Great work by Vijay Antony VERDICT The movie is an absolute treat for all Ilayathalapathy Vijay fans.
