Vettaikaran - Review
[an error occurred while processing this directive]Here is another B grade flick from Vijay's factory of Mass Masala! There is nothing new in this action-revenge-average comedy flick and most of the scenes also dragged from his old movies like Pokkiri, Bhagavathy, Thiruppachi etc... Also Vijay is completely surrendered in front of the demigod of Kollywood, Rajinikanth. He almost copied the  superstar's style and mannerisms even in dialogue delivery. So once again the actor proves that there is no place for originality in his films or his acting.

The story is as old as rock...

Ravi Alias Police Ravi (Vijay), a Tuticorin based happy go lucky guy is attempting continuously to get promotion from his plus two exam. Ravi adores Devraj IPS, a dutiful police officer, as his guru and wishes to become a cop like him in his future.

'Unexpectedly' he passed his plus two exam and starts his trip to Chennai to get admission in a College! He meets a lovely girl Suseela (Anushka) during his journey in the train and immediately falls in love with her and completing his quota of duet in dreams. But in real, Ravi earns his livelihood by driving an auto after his college hours and continuous his studies and love.

One bad day, he meets Chella, a womanizer and the son of local don Vedanayagam (Salim Ghosh), who has control over entire Chennai. Chella once raped Uma, classmate of Ravi which caused for a fierce fight between the heroes and baddies and finally Chella killed. Vedhanayagan makes hard efforts to become a minister in the state cabinet and aims to kill Ravi through his power.

Meanwhile, Vijay comes to know about a shocking fact that Devraj IPS, his guru, has lost his career, eyesight and his family because of Vedhanayagam. Now, Ravi join hands with Devaraj and vows take a revenge of baddies and starts striking with his fists of actions that move in a much cliched way. It is none other than a Perarasu type mass masala which mostly failed to grab the attention of the viewers in most of the scenes. Vijay does his role as usually with lot of aimless punches, stunts and dry comedy. Srinath, appearing as Vijay's associate is irritating the viewers like an empty vessels noise.

The post interval part is so overdosed with gory elements. Anushka reveals her glamour portions well. There is no scope to her to show her acting performance. Though the narration of police officer Devraj role is remembering Nasser of Dhill, Sri Hari done it with his maximum input.

Gopinath's cameras work is good. But it is Vijay Antony who failed to attract with good numbers in tunes as well as BGM. There is nothing new in the film, including the promotional techniques of Sun Pictures.. So the hopes to make this film as a minimum hit is also very difficult to Vijay.
Hard times continues for Vijay.. better luck in Sura!
