Koppu Father is humble and good man, who doesn’t like violence..but Vinayagam brothers are into it in their life to save innocent village people…But for the love, they try to rid of the bad guy image and come to Koppu village ….stay with her family to celebrate festival..Vinayagam feels the love of the family…but still some body is trying to attack him often, though he comes out cleverly….one day Koppu family comes to know about real face of Vinayagam..and there marriage stops there….still…enemyÂ fellas attack..who are they? why do they attack Vinaygam and kopppu family? forms the crux of the story…
Thala Ajith is looks dashing and handsome in Dhoti..a complete make over from the past movies…his screen presence is terrific with some mind blowing action sequence build ups are paccaaaa...emotion at the second half is goodÂ with Thala…tried hand in comedy too..Rides bullock cart, dhoti, family-sentiments..are new to Thala area..he excels ….Tammanna looks beautiful in saree and given matured performance..welcome back white lady!!!!!..Santhanam is the only one..who steal the screen with thunder after thala..his one liners and expressions are laugh riot…his antics to join Tammanna and Ajith are hilarious..honestly,,,he is the man to take the 1st half in his shoulders…..Nasser, Vidharth, Bala, Munish, Shohail, Thambi Ramaiah, Pradeep Rawat..does their role with aplomb…
Photography by Vetri is crystal clear and makes this normal masala movie to a good entertainer..the lush green farms, the climax fight, songs in Swiss are top notch for the mass movie…DSP opening song is good with apt BGM scores in right place...Stunts by Silva is notable..that too the fight when Thala with the kid..needs special mention..the screenplay is racy with some fantastic dialogues and punch lines….scenes are racy at the same..mixed well with family sentiments…
Second half tends to be little tedious or dragged to climax with little overdose of action & violence…Sudden character of Atul kulkarni and his flashback doesn’t seems to gel with family drama….Songs by DSP is below average for the mass movie…Only Thala and Santhanam gets more scope ..and therefore rest of them ..like brothers, villan gets minimal role..could have given extra space or individuality to brother’s character….Police…Police should be there..every time Ajith & co, villain simply cuts with Machete,, shouts and rules the village..???
other than that, there is no glamor, double meaning dialogues, sleazy skin show, or unwanted flying stunts..Veeram is perfect for thala fans and family audience….Go watch Thala Ajith in new avatar…
Verdict:5.5/10(1 for Ajith, 1 for comedy,1 for Vetri’s DOP, 1 for stunts, 1 for racy screenplay,Â and .5 for neat & clean packaging)
Movie canvas Punch: Veeram…ThalaÂ sweet pongal
