A different VTV review yet again
16 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A true tribute to Love, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya couldn't have come at a better time and thus it not only resurrects Tamil Cinema that has been rolling out annoyingly cockeyed experiments and demeaning formula flicks of late, but also thrusts it to a new level that can only be matched by pure Magic. VTV has had all kinds of positive reviews from all quarters including the critics that mostly analyzes the crucial movie-making aspects like direction, acting, music, cinematography etc and it wouldn't be wrong to declare that all these departments couldn't have blended better in this movie. Gautam's exclusive touch, ARR's hypnotic tunes, Simbu's innate acting skills, Trisha's ravishing beauty and Manoj's eye-popping visuals, though undeniably true, have been discussed and reviewed to death and therefore this review will not cover any of it fortunately.

If one takes a deeper look as to why this movie had a stupendous response, it would be quite evident that it deals with a subject that keeps human species from going extinct, which is apparently "Love" or call it "Romance" in a more youthful way. Love is one of the very few things that people go crazy for, not to mention Money and Power. It is always refreshing to see the lead actors in such a movie behave naturally while romancing and deal with realistic situations as we would see in the life of a boy/girl next door. It not only gives a pragmatic facet to the film-making but also provides a hardly-witnessed dimension of seeing ourselves on the big screen. Although most successful movies have piggybacked on this aspect, VTV has easily managed to take it many steps further and achieved an insurmountable level of connectivity with the audience. When such a phenomenon occurs, movie-goers would not mind watching the movie over and over again, which inturn leads to its commercial success. There are quite a few circumstances in the story that deserves special applause for its simplicity and true-to-life treatment.

Various people in the industry keep talking about taking Tamil Cinema to the new level though the visibility of that level is never fathomed except for a handful like Kamal Hassan and Mani Ratnam. The attainment of that kind of level does not necessarily mean acceptance and praise from overseas film industries because of the indigenous nature of our subjects. VTV has certainly taken good strides towards this and Gautam is not far from reaching it in the near future provided he stays impervious to producer's and hero's demands. So, it's not surprising that VTV will be remade in Hindi and Gautam will wield the megaphone again in an attempt to make Bollywood audience go gaga about it as he has already done that with Tamil audience.
