Director Mohan Raja has come up with another massive product after Thani Oruvan. From this film it is more than evident that Sivakarthikeyan has evolved into a better actor. There are too many good characters, thus reducing the screen-space of each actor that seem to be disabling the audiences to connect with those characters. Fahadh Faasil has done a fantabulous job but lies low as compared to Arvind Swami in Thani Oruvan.
Velaikkaran lacks the cat & mouse game between the hero and the villain and focuses fully on social messages and facts. It is indeed stunning that the facts told can be easily related with our daily lives, and it sure changes our view towards malls and supermarkets. Nayanthara's role too wasn't as expected but it didn't turn out to be an obstacle for the movement of the story. Anirudh's bgms has been the backbone in elevating the impact of the scenes, and the songs to are fixed wherever it is necessary and not to drag time.
In a typical Sivakarthikeyan movie, we expect comedy, fun, dance, romance etc., but for those who expected these things are sure to get disappointed and to enjoy the film, they must realise that it is a Mohan Raja film.
The facts and cause steals the show, and has managed to involve the audiences. It has also left a huge impact on the audience and sure to become aware of the food adulteration that has been prevailing in our nation for decades.
It is a more than one-time watchable film, and undoubtedly it deserves an 8/10 and probably one of best films of the year.
