Ah! Finally Dhanush returns with a movie which caters to the masses. After experimenting with critically acclaimed (but not commercially viable ) movies Dhanush makes a grand comeback with his 25th movie. Right from frame one it is evident that the movie is made with sole intention of highlighting Dhanush in a hero-oriented vehicle and he carries the film on his strong shoulders.
The plot – An unemployed youth’s blood, sweat and hard work is snatched away from him. Will he be able to fight the big fishes in his field of work ? You have to watch the film to find out.
The first half plays out like a standard Dhanush template – the unemployed youth who earns the wrath of his father, the naive mother. We have seen it all before but still end up rooting for the protagonist. The second half is where the heroism takes over.
Samuthrakani impresses as the caring father so does Saranya as the doting, naive mother. The chemistry between the lead pair is fresh and likeable. Vivek makes a mark with his mild humour after a long gap. The only minus – the meek villains who appear as mere caricatures.
Anirudh delivers with his signature tunes. The claps in the theatre are testimony to his growing popularity.
Velraj takes on the ever burning issue of unemployment and adds a commercial flavour to it. A very good first attempt.
VIP – An apt commercial entertainer for the masses.
