Exactly after a year since his last release, the superhit comedy caper Kalakalappu 2, commercial hitmaker Sundar.C is back, joining hands with Simbu, who had made a strong return to form with his gangster act in Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, to deliver Vanthaa Rajavathaan Varuven, titled after Simbu’s dialogue. Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven is the official remake of 2013 Telugu blockbuster Pawan Kalyan’s Attarintiki Daaredhi, and let’s see how well Sundar.C has adapted it to suit Tamil sensibilities.
Vanthaa Rajavathaan Varuven begins with the introduction of Aditya (Simbu), the grandson of the wealthy Raghunandan(Nasser), who promises to bring back his estranged daughter Nandini(Ramya Krishnan) who had married Prakash(Prabhu) against his wishes. The royal Aditya enters Nandini’s family as driver Raja, tries to woo her elder daughter Priya (Catherine Tresa), but as she’s already in love, shifts focus to her second daughter Maya (Megha Akash). Though Maya hates him initially she falls for him, and then situations lead to the revelation that Nandini already knew Aditya’s identity and fixes Maya’s marriage.Whether Aditya was able to win his aunt’s heart and unite the family and also win Maya’s love is what Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven is all about.

Simbu is in his elements, having fun to mouth punches and teaming with Robo Shankar and Yogi Babu to generate laughs, bash baddies doing the mass hero act, dances with energy and excels in few emotional episodes. Though Ramya Krishnan looks authoritative, she gets an opportunity to emote only towards the end, as Vantha Rajavathaan is a complete Simbu show and he completely overshadows everyone. Though Megha Akash’s character is restricted, she makes her presence felt with her pretty looks and glamour, while Catherine Tresa plays the typical eye-candy to perfection. Prabhu and Nasser are cast in minuscule roles and it’s a cakewalk for the veterans. The comedy duo Yogi Babu and Robo Shankar entertain with their one-liners and counters that work occasionally. Amit Tiwari and Radha Ravi are cast in cliched, stereotypical villain roles for the umpteenth time. The rest of the cast including Mahath, Suman and VTV Ganesh do not get much scope.
Sundar C humour and glamour have worked out well, Those punches from STR will make fans go crazy and Vandha Rajavathaan Varuven flats in some area & makes us feel 😶🤐 & it’s one time watchable
Rating – 2.5/5
