Vijay and Raja team up to give an unpretentious entertainer. It is a good movie to see relish and enjoy. Vijay at his best, it has everything to appease movie -buffs On the downside, the film is far too long, especially the second half. Shorter in length, one song sacrificed, its action scenes trimmed, Velayudham would have been crisp. But still it is a perfect outing with family, if you are looking for time pass entertainment.
Velayudham is all about a common man who puts on a super-hero mask to vanish the evil in the society. The first half of the film is racy, engaging the audiences with interesting comedy and thrilling elements. On the flip side, the pace of the second half drops and the story moves in a routine formulaic way. Nevertheless, Vijay holds your attention all the way with his stylish attire, dances and action.
