Did You Know?


The Hindi version (VIP 2 - Lalkar) underwent some dialogue revisions as Kajol felt they lacked punch to the Tamil original despite being a literally translated by seasoned dub writer, Mohan Nair. 2 writers (Aanand & Swati Goradiya) were roped in for the hindi dialogue rewrites. Kajol re-dubbed those lines, while the rest of the film was also dubbed in Hindi by popular tamil dubbing artist, Deepa Venkat, who had also dubbed her in Tamil. This marks Venkat's debut in Hindi as a dubbing artist. See more »

Velaiyilla Pattathari 2 fails to recreate the magic of its prequel
6 February 2021 | by kumarankulamSee all my reviews

After the biggest success of Velaiyilla Pattathari, Dhanush and Soundarya Rajinikanth are uniting for the first time in Velaiyilla Pattathari 2. Unlike Velaiyilla Pattathari, the sequel seems to be less youthful and less energetic. The factors that made the prequel successful and memorable are not present in this film which seems to be one of the biggest drawbacks. Dhanush as Raghuvaran is inimitable. He is the heart and soul of the Velaiyilla Pattathari franchise. On the other side, we have Amala Paul reprising her role as Shalini who seems to be more mature with the shades of the usual soap opera-type heroine. Even though we had Samuthirakani and Vivek for the comedy scenes, she is the show stealer with her strict attitude which is a delight to watch. As the antagonist, we have Kajol who seems to have a very strong and promising role at first but ends up similar to the antagonist of the prequel. Velaiyilla Pattathari 2 lacks the magic that the prequel had. There are several dull moments that drag the overall film down. The film's duration might be shorter but the slow pace of the second half is a big drawback. Until the interval, VIP 2 had made a promising impression which has been ruined by a soap opera kind second half. Even the climax seems to be a mismatch. The Raghuvaran that we celebrated in Velaiyilla Pattathari seems to have faded away in this underwhelming film. Another big drawback of VIP 2, it's the soundtrack composed by Sean Roldan who doesn't fit in this film. The background score lacks the energy that the prequel had with Anirudh. There are only a few themes that worked that was borrowed from the prequel. Overall, Velaiyilla Pattathari 2 fails to recreate the magic of its prequel.
