Audience Member Overlong and manipulative. Vijay saves the day. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Overlong and manipulative. Vijay saves the day. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Ok to watch one time watchable Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Velayudham- the sizzling cocktail of all the best elements from a Vijay film put together, in the form an amazing superhero film, not to mention! Who can beat Vijay as a non-superpowered but powerful superhero?Definitely a landmark for South Indian cinema! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member the movie is wonderful Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Instead of focusing on "punch" dialogues and simple "hero kills villain" kind of story, there is a good amount of emphasis laid on the pseudo heroine as well. Director has taken it up to cover most of the silly mistakes that happen in Tamil movies. Screenplay is fast paced and when the action gets to a high we have a nice number or comedy scene to take the heat off. Vijay dons the role of a happy-go-lucky, sister loving, girlfriend fearing, charming village milkman during the first half. In the second he is the action packed superhero Velayudham. This movie definitely suits his style and I guess he has been quite comfortable in blending into the character. Genelia has played her part with a lot of confidence. Hansika plays more of a third fiddle throughout the film - her presence is probably more for glamour (probably her character itself was an afterthought). Saranya was a really good pick. She plays the chirpy sister role with gusto and makes her presence count. The songs of the movie are already a big hit. In general the songs appeal to most of the audience. Santhanam has done a good job in the comedy role and even small time comedians and veterans who play short roles have chipped in nicely. As an afterthought I will say there are too many comedians in this movie. Overall this movie is a good entertainer. Worth watching with family or friends.
