Velaikkaran Review & Rating


Velaikkaran features Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara in the lead roles and Malayalam superstar Fahadh Faasil in a supporting role. As the movie is directed by Mohan Raja right after Thani Oruvan there's been a lot of buzz around it. Siva Karthikeyan, on the other hand, is in fine form with back to back super hits and is increasing his market with each and every movie. The inclusion of Fahadh Faasil has increased the curiosity among the movie lovers as this is his first straight Tamil movie and his fans are quite excited about the movie. With a stellar cast and superb technicians, the movie is expected to do well at the box-office, provided that the story and screenplay are good.

The story is about how the corporate bigwigs are looting the public money with super publicity and the movie is all about how an employee Arivu takes up the challenge and overcomes the struggles to find the justice.

Sivakarthikeyan has been doing commercial films in the recent past and this time he has come up with a message oriented movie. He unleashes the actor in him with this film as his role is close to the reality and has a lot of scope for performance. He doesn't mouth any powerful punch dialogues and doesn't perform actions sequences in which 10 goons fly in the air at a time, but he makes sure that he creates an impact that powerful. He underplays his role perfectly and performs well in a serious role. Fahadh Faasil can be said as the trump card here. He has been perfectly cast in a role that we feel no one else could've done a better job in that role. His performance is one more major asset for the movie and one can't take eyes off this man when he is on screen. Prakashraj, Nayantara, RJ Balaji, Ramdoss and others do justice to their roles and perform well.

Velaikkaran scores big on the technical front as well. Camerawork by Ramji is neat as he captures the slum perfectly. The art department has done a fantastic job with the sets and the entire set up looks realistic. Anirudh Ravichander has given a fantastic album for Sivakarthikeyan once again and his background score is okay. Vivek Harshan's editing is crisp. Coming to the story and direction, Mohan Raja does a superb job with both as he chooses a nice subject and executes it perfectly. He has a lot of clarity on what he wants from his actors and technicians and extracts superb output from them. Though this film's screenplay has glimpses of Thani Oruvan, the story is entirely different. He succeeds in providing a film with a message but he makes sure that it doesn't get preachy. The way he handled the subject close to reality without adding many commercial elements is a gutsy attempt and he must be appreciated in doing so. Mohan Raja along with his team provide a different thriller to Tamil cinema once again.

Verdict: Watch it for Sivakarthikeyan and Fahadh Faasil's show.

Velaikkaran Preview

What Is it About?

It doesn't get better than the combination of a hero who is in top form and a director who is high on the success of his last film. Same is the case with Velaikkaran as the director of this film, Mohan Raja recently scored a blockbuster in the form of Thani Oruvan which received critical acclaim from across the country. Now he teamed up with Sivakarthikeyan who is enjoying back to back hits in his career. R.D. Raja who produced the previous film of Sivakarthikeyan is bankrolling this film. The film seems to be an intense action thriller with an interesting plot and a social message.

What To Expect?

  • Terrific Performances

Velaikkaran boasts off an ensemble cast in the form of Sivakarthikeyan, Nayanthara, Fahaadh Faasil, Sneha, Prakash Raj and others who are known for their superb performances. Sivakarthikeyan especially is in top form with great performances is all his recent releases. He is a gifted actor who can impress us with his impeccable comic timing and can get as intense as possible in action scenes. Fahadh Faasil, on the other hand, is one actor who always chooses author-backed roles and performs accordingly. His role in Velaikkaran too seems to be one of such kind so we can expect one more great performance from him. Apart from these 2, Nayanthara, Prakash Raj, and Sneha are also great actors who can deliver top class performances when given some scope.

  • Interesting Story and A Message

Ever since the film was announced, everyone is interested to know with what kind of story Mohan Raja will be coming with. And he came up with something beyond everyone's expectations and chose to do a movie based on the life of an attendant who chooses to fight the food adulteration. This kind of story is very new and the message Mohan Raja choose to convey to the audience is worth applauding. The screenplay written by himself must be gripping like his previous film and with interesting twists and turns here and there.

  • Superb Background Score

The film has music by Anirudh Ravichander who is composing for the 6th time for a Sivakarthikeyan movie. Siva-Anirudh combination has turned out to be a successful one as both the songs and films in their combinations became a super hit in the past. Same is the case with Velaikkaran as the songs of the movie turned out to be a superhit and topping the charts. Anirudh never disappoints with his background score and we can expect the same from him for this movie as well. The recently released promos have glimpses of intense action scenes and Anirudh's background score for those promos is impressive. Hope that he does similar kind of job for the movie as well.
