Have you watch the movie? Please review it! Velayudham is Masala Entertainer

- by Pavithra S
Ilaya Thalapathi Vijay has his comfort zone in the form of formula mass films that have a superhero at its epi-centre, destroying evil; saving his world; offering safety and security to those around him: all preferably done with panache and the prowess of a superman.

This time too, he has attempted more of the same with Aascar Ravichandran's Velayudham, directed by M Raja. It is safe to say that the young commander has managed to hit the bull's eye.

Velayudham, remade from the Telugu hit Azad, with suitable modifications, has a story that's as old as the hills but there are a few elements that do add some flavour to the old wine in a new bottle.

There's Bharathi (Genelia D'Souza), a journalist committed to eradicating terrorism, and who loses two of her friends to it. She comes up with a novel idea that might quell the terror: create a fictional character called Velayudham, who supposedly foils all their plans and torches them alive, to boot.

The thing is, there really is a Velayudham (Vijay) a milkman who lives in the tiny village of Pavunoor, and adores his sister Kaveri (Saranya Mohan). Together, the two create havoc in the village, as Velayudham is the kind of filmi brother who will do anything for his darling sibling, and vice versa. There's also the incredibly bouncy Vaidehi (Hansika Motwani), who wears incredibly revealing pavadai-dhavani, and whose presence leaves you in no doubt as to what her purpose in the film is. Her father (M S Bhaskar) is as silly as they come.

When Velayudham arrives in Chennai to retrieve money from a chit fund for his sister's marriage, he gets entangled in an elaborate terrorist plot and the fun really does begin.

The first half moves at a spanking pace, thanks to Vijay's own incredible comic sense. After a long while, you see not the star Vijay, but a genuinely affectionate brother who wants to get his sister married well. His antics, together with those of Speedu (Santhanam) set the audiences rolling right away. It's this Vijay that you've missed, for so long.

Post the intermission, the speed drops considerably and you're treated to more formulaic, mind-numbing stunts that defy every law of physics. But what does it matter when Vijay looms large? He dances well, beats people up, clad in a stylish attire that's supposedly stolen from a Genghis Khan collection (and which is, so it's said, inspired from Assassin's Creed), and wields a samurai sword to the manner born. He's the ultimate super-hero, and makes no bones about it.

Saranya Mohan, as his sister has precious little to do except look adorable and hug him a lot, which she does dutifully. She gets almost as much screen-time as Genelia D'Souza, who, for once, has given up the giggling school-girl act and actually has something to do. Hansika, however, doesn't, and her tittering gets on your nerves after a while.

Santhanam delivers his usual, as is his wont. The rest of the cast: Suri, Shayaji Shinde, Manivannan, et al merely form part of the backdrop.

Of Vijay Antony's numbers, Rathathin Rathame (sung, presumably, to Vijay's sister, but in reality, to Vijay's fans) and Molaichu Moonu linger. V T Vijayan's editing could have been utilised better in the second half, while Priyan's cinematography fits the bill.

With Subha's dialogues adding some pep, director M Raja has set out to provide a masala entertainer that doesn't require you to tax your brain cells. Velayudham doesn't take itself seriously and doesn't expect you to either. In other words, it's paisa vasool.
Review 2:

Interesting fare

When a successful team comes together, expectations obviously rises high. SO is the case with 7 Am Arivu. Suriya, director A R Murugadoss and music composer Harris Jayaraj team up again after the blockbuster Ghajini, obviously all eyes are on the movie.


Bharathi (Genalia) is a journalist on a mission. She fights against evil and corrupt men in the society. She reports on Home Minister's links with ultras and their plans to disturb peace in Tamilnadu by planting bombs. She incurs their wrath and she becomes their target. Meanwhile she leaves a note where she creates an artificial character Velyudham, whom she says will end the menace of corrupt and greedy.

Interestingly there is one Velayudham (Vijay), a milkman in a village living a happy life with his sister (Saranya Mohan). Videhi (Hanshika Motwani) has a crush on him. She is his cousin in the village and the rural belle is desperately in love with Velayudham. One day velayudham comes to Chenani to withdraw cash from a chit fund firm and he comes across Bharathi. It is now obvious that Velayudham will take up the challenge and he turns the messiah of the masses from here. Its action and revenge from here.


It's Vijay special all the way. Three cheers to Raja for weaving a script to the strength of Vijay. His mass elements are utilised well; by the director. As usual Vijay rocks in dance and stunt sequences. Interestingly in the climax, he rips his shirt and fights, a delight for his fans. Genelia is apt fort the role. She plays a serious journalist and has a meaty role to do. Hanshika provides the oomph factor. As rural belle, she is impressive. She does her role well. She tries her hand at comedy too. Three cheers to her. Saranya Mohan has a part to play while Sanathanam as usual flies high with his one-liners, that are rib-tickling.


Vijay Anthony's music and the peppy songs add strength to the film, while Priyan's cinematography gives it solidity. he captures the chase, fights well. Raja deserves all applause for weaving an interesting film, though inspired by telugu hit Azad.


Vijay and Raja team up to give an unpretentious entertainer. It is a good movie to see relish and enjoy. Vijay at his best, it has everything to appease movie -buffs. But the lacunae is its length. Specially needless songs stuffed in between which breaks the flow.

Vijay Performence SUPEEEER 'ma !!!! Climax MINDBLOWING exept when the little girl scream in the crowd ! i think its ridiculus and Director Raja could think a better idea ! anyway it's another SUPER HIT FOR THALAPATHY ! AND : a little request as a fan of THALAPATHY : Please don't do the stupid scenes like the little girl who screaming or a feeling scene in between a fight scene (i mean when velayutham save all the girls and talk to the little girl at the end of the fight) it waste the scene in that case ! otherwise Hats off to the all team of VELAYUTHAM !!! again VIJAY perf is EXCELENT !

Fair & Honest Verdict of Vijay's Velayudham:
Compared to the recent failures he encountered in his career Velayudham seems to be quite satisfactory but once again not proving worth as expected.Many of the scenes resembled his previous films once again.The screenplay was good.Song sequences were good.The first half was a bit humorous. Santhaanam deserves a big applause.The second half was just sati...

  15. I ve seen both the movies.Here's my review:

    7am arivu is awesomeeeee !!!!!! SURYA has done a gr8 performance and the story is really good.... this movie should be a hit.

    whereas velayudham - "the same masala type movie". It is certainly a mass entertainer, dont know how many times will vijay do these types of movies.We know he can do a lot better

  16. Vijay ithuku surya suniya oombulam da.... Thevidia pasangalaaaa

  17. Ra one and velayudham watchable but 7am arivu just boring

  21. ivan thirundhave maatana... climax la 6 packs sema comedy.. still i cant get the climax thrill as said by others.. padam comedy piece.. waste of time nd money.. thu

  22. if vijay comes to politics means then Tn will surely lose more than 50% of its population. he will put a rule tat his photo should be kept as god in all homes.. kadavule eppadiyavathu intha koosu kitta irunthu Tamilnatta kapathu. engaluku viduvu kalam eh illaiya??

  23. ssshhh.......... very good ..........ithukku mela avan comment poduvan antha tha__li?




  27. Thalapathi is rocking in vela,,,,,,,,,,, excellent movie and a family entertainer,,,,,,,money worth

  28. Velayudham rocking superb those who say like baghavathi,tiruppachi sathyama solran padam pakkama thalabathi eh ottanum nu podranga saathittu ponga da.Thalabathy back.100 times better than azad.Climax is awesome and train fight chanceless even in that he didn't show the heroism. Have to appreciate vijay anna and hats off raja sir thank you very much.

    Now come to 7 am arivu heard movie slow,boring as a vijay fan i'll say its epic film will be like that only those who say movie is bad Are you tamilan???If you are tamilan watch once. indians proved to hollywood we too can do sci-fiction film like you.

  45. velayudham mass entertainer this diwali...

  46. vijay is the best ..surya al waste piece

  47. Velayutham is not as good as 7am arivu. Surya rocks!!!!!!!!!! Vijay is the worst actor!!!!!

  48. It`s a competition between the actors and it`s not a conflict between the fans or viwers.So, appreciate the performance not the personalities.

  49. weii mudhikittyu velaiyai paarungo

  50. aden mathew ading un chuthle en chuni. soootha mudinu picture pathama nalairundhichina nallaruku illaya vitttidu atha vititu mathavanga chuthu poola punda pathila enda pesure.gandu ennda ippidi erukinga.first ungala serupaleye adikanum. poi parangada vijayyam surayvayum avannga nallathanda friends tha erukanga. neengaennda adchikiringa nan rendoo peroda padathilayum vellasenjiriken yarrum kastapadame illa. poitu vunga vellya parungada. main aden mathewku sollern next ne ithule edanaa thapanaana words use pannin erunthatha parthen ne avalavutha da poramboku naye

  51. vijay will not cum as super star.he's the worst actor.he's not a good entertainer.

  52. I liked the comedy........specially the scene where Vijay sees Jeeny's boops and when she scolds Vijay he shows his!!!!!!!!!!!! very funny

  53. Thalapathi ya pathi thappa pesunavan avanga amma va kuutti kotukarathu samam poda koya olukka avanga amma mulaiela nan vanthu pal kutipen avanga amma pocha virichu en sunni ya etuthu pocha vitu pocha kilichut├║ven by nanban in nanban sura
