Vettri Vel (Victory spear)

Its better I conform it was not a Vijay film! Punch dialogue is punching much at the beginning scene of Vel (spear). Usual double role subject, but new to surya after the average success of SOK. The story narrated from a train journey where a parents lost one of there twins and both grown in a different places. Younger one working as a detective office, living with parents and elder one as brave hero in a big family at a village near Dindukkal. Without any confusion the screenplay played well showing the two environments in very neat manner, where saranya the mother of twins always with tears and thinking about his very lose son gives a usual distress felt when will skip to another scene. Even there was no bright romance, Asin comes beautiful, charming in that stylish glass with a cleanly washed face helps to know about elder surya to younger. Where the highlights of the chasing comes when the villain’s group attempt to kill younger one who looks alike elder Vel and the bus busting and rising up to meters high and crashing on the ground is unneeded but amazing, where in next time it wont wonder even if they rise the train or flight to meters high.

Naasar comes littler when adopting his found son vel and to introduce the opponent Kalabavan mani in flashback, where the enmity continues till vel generation. The race between the villain and hero comes forward; back on exchanging loses, when only after vasu (younger Surya) enters, it pickups in a different interesting intelligently move that was in impersonation of elder as younger. Kalabavan mani tries to kept a separate place for his humorist villain. How does the both solves the problem of mani and the sentiment between the lost and found family of elder son vel was said in family affection and very fast last with action is what takes the film without boring and it was the pulse of director Hari. After convinced that the story tells don’t sharpen the sword, sharp your brain then why the director gave a violent in climax with villain disputes.

I expect always an interesting and positive movie from hari, but if he reduces the more weapons and violence it suits for a whole family drama. About comedy, where our southern storm vadivelu binds with his attractive and simplify, but his usual stupid way of losing things is like painting with empty brush. Elder surya shows his last six (Aaru) face in single frame and younger one have to be balance of smart SOK look. Songs are rural touch, Kovakkara Kiliye… is most beautiful in all, the backdrop and countryside’s are fresh green and blue are soothing to vision. Aayiram Jannal Vedu …gives an idyllic feel; it shows the happiness of a joint-family. In the intro a thought, it would be attracting between people if this was a release for pongal. Yuvan’s music at background creates flurry at action sequences, but i felt as he have used his old tunes in songs, where from his last village based movies. Surya had tries to copy his bro karthi’s renown in this film, but some how that scene got whistle from audience. The cinematography is better in quality, the cameraman V.T Vijayan gives a force in action and slower in sentiments, in Tamil industry he is one with not grand, but best.

I hear vel is a well doing film in diwali releases. After Arul the old movie of hair, it happens that I have been continuously watching his films in theater. This time it was the rain disturbed for few minutes and the sea breeze lift ups the mood except watching film at drive-in.

Hopped in here from Vinesh's pages. Nice blog. Regarding Vel, all I can say is that "it was too blunt" :) I wonder why Surya accepts to do such films. Btw, if you want to how ATM is, this is what people say -- "Avoid This Movie" :)
