Velayudham-Roller coaster ride!
26 October 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

saw the movie first show at AGS-chennai at 6.15 jay has proved his metal again..after the huge success of kaavalan...thalapathy has given yet another mass entertainer..first half was a roller coaster ride with vi jay-santhanam&co combo scenes..the story moves very fast showing the relationship between saranaya(sister) and vi jay.thanks to Vijay's own incredible comic sense. After a long while, you see not the star Vijay, but a genuinely affectionate brother who wants to get his sister married well. His antics, together with those of Speedu (Santhanam) set the audiences rolling right away. It's this Vijay that you've missed, for so long.second half shows how vi jay turns in to super hero VELAYUDHAM to save people.stunts has shaped up pretty jay has did some homework for fight seqs which can be witnessed from the stunts.pass mark to screenplay because all the scenes follows the order with logics behind it.special mention about a particular scene post intermission when saranya dies,vi jay has performed extremely well and gets applause from the audience as well.coming to the climax which is very different from other vi jay movies says a social message to the people which has been done beautifully by vi jay.on casts genelia has not given her 100% and hansika has done her part well with her bubbly appearance.On the whole,people who still doubt whether vi jay can give mass entertainer onddate in his own style,here is the answer in form of VELAYUDHAM which had everything to be declared as MASS HIT!!!!
