Alternate Versions

The version of the film released in New Zealand is identical to the cut UK version. This has been confirmed as both the running time in New Zealand and the (censored) UK version are identical (both running at 147 minutes and 59 seconds) as opposed to the International Version (which runs at 155 minutes and 44 seconds). Presumably this was done in order to secure the M rating as opposed to an R16 (which makes it illegal for under 16s to watch) See more »

Strictly for Ajith Fans
10 November 2015 | by crazyrajuSee all my reviews

'Vedhalam' is a run-of-the-mill mass masala film which follows the 'Baashaa' template. But here the director had concentrated more on sister sentiment quotient.

The plot goes as below : Ganesh (Ajith Kumar), with his lovely sister (Lakshmi Menon) leads a simple life in Kolkotta. But Ganesh happens to target underworld dons with intention. What is the motive behind it and how he kills those scumbags follows the rest of the film.

Being a commercial genre film, the film provides few entertainment and mass moments throughout the film. Ajith Kumar's screen presence would be a treat for his fans. Lakshmi Menon has some space to perform in the film and she had justified her role.

Other than that, the film contains many negatives and logical loopholes. Surprisingly, Anirudh had failed to score good both in songs and background score.

Overall, this movie has been targeted for Ajith fans and the film had failed to impress the general audience.

Rating : 2/5
