Bairavaa has all the ingredients to become a huge hit only if it had released a decade earlier.But now it became overly outdated.
Bairavaa (2017): After the super success of Theri (surprisingly) Vijay returns with yet another commercial potboiler called Bairavaa. I always have a doubt on Vijay's stardom because apart of his amazing dance skills,his acting is strictly meant for his fans.The same applies to his movies (except Kaththi and Thuppaki),which are only meant for his fans.The same applies to this utter rubbish Bairavaa.
Plot: Bairavaa (Vijay) meets Malarvizhi (Keerthy Suresh), a medical college student, at a wedding and falls in love.When Bairavaa realizes that Malarvizhi is embroiled in a bitter legal battle with the corrupt chairman of her medical college, he promptly becomes her knight in shining armor.He accompanies her to her hometown in Tirunelveli to meet real estate tycoon Periyakannu (Jagapati Babu), who is the town's biggest bully.Periyakannu owns most of the business establishments and educational institutions in Tirunelveli. He and his accomplice Kottaiveeran (Daniel Balaji) rule the town with an iron hand.His medical college is a sham with no facilities and Malarvizhi and her friends, who have paid a lot of money for their seats, are fighting for their rights. The flashback shows the rape and death of Malarvizhi's friend Vaishali (Aparna Vinod), another student, who has sold her home to get a seat in the college.So how does Bairavaa save Malar and fight against PK forms the rest of the story?
1)Flashback: A decent flashback is the only saving grace of Bairavaa.Though it has regular scenes,the setup in medical college and the problems faced by medical students in private colleges with no facilities are showcased well enough.
2)Varlaam Vaarlam Vaa Bairavaa track: Though it has bit Kaththi theme touch to it,still it felt good during fight sequences.But they overused in almost every fight scene which felt so repetitive.
The director attempts to highlight corruption in medical colleges and the plight of students, who have no assurances even after shelling out huge sums of money for a seat. But the plot is lost in the director's over enthusiasm to portray Vijay as an all-powerful Messiah.
Bairavaa has typical outdated screenplay which tests our patience.The fun part is that they have used scenes even from the decade earlier movies like Sye,Mudhalvan,Temper,Dabangg etc.
Even fights have no freshness in it.In few fights,they have used Thuppaki and Sarrainodu bits.
Music is total disaster.What happened to Santhosh Narayan?
So,Bairavaa has all the ingredients to become a huge hit only if it had released a decade earlier.But now it became overly outdated.
My rating 4.5/10
