I saw “Vivegam” movie special show (7:15 am) in Rajesh Theatre, Nagercoil. Just like any other Ajith movie, the theatre was lit with banners and decorations all around.
Vivegam kicks off with high octane stunt sequence and is cut short by a logic barred helicopter explosion scene. Then shifts to a beautiful family life with Kajal Agarwal. The love scenes are good, but in the long run feels draggy. “Vivegam” is a movie of hero worship plus full-time hero praising. Each and every scene looks like a hero introduction scene all by itself. The build ups and lengthy action scenes are good at times but feel overdosed due to its repetitive nature.
Ajith and Anirudh form the backbone of this movie. Ajith’s screen presence backed with nerve giggling background score makes situations tense. The movie has few pleasant moments like the romance between the leads and few intelligent scenes (Hologram, Kajal tracking scene Pre-climax). But unfortunately, the overall flaws override the very few pros of this usual revenge drama.
The camera is in jet mode and seldom settles in a single location. I would have been happier if the screenplay had driven the movie rather than just the camera. Karunakaran comes in at a very handy role and does his part well. Vivek Oberoi does his job as per the agenda. Akshara Haasan shines in the 15 minutes allocated to her. Rest of the characters aren’t worth mentioning. The Graphics work wonders, to be frank. They don’t seem like a local flavor.
European guys talking in Tamil and sudden English dialogues leaves me clueless as to what the director intends to do. If you are hoping for a Hollywood styled Tamil movie, then nope! This isn’t the movie you are looking for. This is just another Average Tamil Action movie staged in Foreign locations backed with Ajith’s strong performance and Anirudh’s BGM but pulled down by an unwoven story and draggy screenplay.
Strictly for Ajith Fans!
