Veeram stands Bravely
10 January 2014 | by vimal-playboy-tvlSee all my reviews

Ajith is Vinayak, the affectionate elder brother of four, crossing the mountains to make it big and yes the traditional story indeed. And to make the brother bond firm and glued, he detests marriage. Enter Pichai Muniyandi aka Santhanam who takes the first half on a roller coaster ride of decent fun! You can't write this comedian off, not without utilizing his real potential! The tirade he runs through by trying to get the ruff and tuff Vinayak to fall in love along with the younger brothers is thoroughly enjoyable.

Tamannah is Kopurendevi the bubbly doll, doing justice to her character is not just the usual heroine who runs behind her Romeo for duets and Siva has utilized her thoroughly. Bringing the little cupid that's hidden in the rough and honest Vinayak is the first half, and "n" attempts later finally it happens. Never has mass action been related in such an enjoyable way with no much Punch dialogues and the best part is how neatly action has been unveiled!

Siva and Boopathy Raja's storytelling deserves an applaud for it has taken the tested rural story and decorated it with mass, action and most importantly made use of Ajith's enormous screen presence to the full potential. There are minor drawbacks like showcasing too much affection one too many times, these are very vintage sentimental trysts. The second half with sentiments and bonding is quite a lag, but on the whole it doesn't jolt you much. DSP is known to have given some excellent mass numbers in the past, however Veeram will sadly remembered only for its aggressive BGM and not the songs. The art directors and Vetri's cinematography of the beautiful village milieu is relishable! Coming to the cast, Ajith Ajith Ajith all the way! Most of the mass action movies have the heroes carrying the movie through the film, however Veeram has proved it doesn't have to be! Ajith has demystified the fact that mass does not relate to entire movie presence, but the times you appear should make you stand up and clap! His body language is adorable and the salt n pepper looks makes him look even charmer! After him, Santhanam is the key, with his one liners making you double with laughter and sticks well to the story as well. Nassar, Viddharth, the brothers do their role well enough, with Pradeep menacing as a villain should be.

On the whole a complete family entertainer, finish your Pongal rituals and rush to Veeram! You ain't gonna regret it!
