TRIBUNE NEWS NETWORK
After Run almost ten years ago, director Lingusamy and Madhavan come together in a bid to repeat the magic, this time with added strength. They have added young and bubbly Arya to their company.
A sibling story, Vettai promises plenty of action and emotion.
Lingusamy has ensured that his typical commercial elements find a place in Vettai that proceeds in quick pace with a number of twists and turns.
Lingusamy has given fresh vibes to the film. There are host of characters and events unfold in quick succession.
G u r u m u r t h y (Madhavan) and Thirumurthy (Arya) are brothers.
The former is s h y a n d timid while the latter is bold and takes chances.
Their father is a police officer. After his demise, a reluctant Guru is forced to take up the job. Thiru is very supportive of his brother. He works as an undercover agent and helps his brother emerge successful in the fight against goons.
There is Vasanthi (Sameera), a talkative village belle who marries Guru. Her sister Jayanthi (Amala Paul) falls for Thiru and his mannerisms.
Annachi (Asutosh Rana), portrays a villain.
He takes up cudgels against Guru.
Now Thiru steps in to set things right. At one point, coward Guru is prepared to face all challenges. How the two brothers join hands to eliminate Annachi forms the rest.
Madhavan is at his best playing a timid young man. He seems to have a good rapport working with Lingusamy and it is evident in the film. Arya’s vibrant energy adds strength to his character. At certain places in the film, his character seems to resemble his role in Boss Engira Baskaran.
Amala Paul and Sameera Reddy share equal screen space.
Produced by Thirupathi Brothers and released by UTV Motion Pictures, Vettai is a cliched path travelled by Lingusamy. But the right packaging of commercial elements with an apt star cast makes the movie worth a watch.
If you are ready to forget all logic and want to enjoy a masala movie this festive season, Vettai is the movie for you!
