Vijay is back....
8 February 2011 | by krishtheboss5See all my reviews

I wanna say this is not a regular Vijay movie. After seeing a sting of flops and xerox in the name of movies, I went to kaavalan with just few expectations. Well I have to say I was more than satisfied. Vijay Asin combo rocks.

Movie starts with a "not so usual" type of Vijay introduction and it gave an first impression that this might be a different movie. Few minutes into the movie we have an basic idea what the movie is gonna be about. Rajkiran, a former some type of don, names baby Vijay. Vijay as he grows up he just loafs in the village. So his parents pack him off to Rajkiran's place as a bodyguard.

There enters Vadivelu. With Vadivelu and few fights and sentiment, Vijay is assigned to look after Asin and her friend Mithra Kurian in their coll. He walks behind them all the time with a security uniform, Since he is good in studies, he is made to teach the female leads. These scenes are hilarious.

After being frustrated by all these, Asin, on the advice of her friend, calls up Vijay from an blocked number ad flirts with him on the phone. He first thinks its a prank call but then he gets addicted to the calls. But at the same time she realizes that Vijay respects her dad and her a lot.

As the film progresses the love between Vijay and Asin progresses but vijay has no idea that the girl is Asin. As the movie goes on, Asin completely falls in love with Vijay. what happens after this forms the rest of the story.

Basically the movie is good. Even though its yet another remake hit, its better than original craps like atm, sura. Best positives from this movie is Vijay's awakening to the fact that people hate his stereotype movies. And Asin's return to Tamil movies. In short the movie is good and can be watched.
