Viswasam Review :
Thala Ajith and his favourite director Siva are back again with Viswasam which is actually the extension of their most enjoyable commercial potboiler Veeram. Treatment is Siva’s forte and that is what makes this film tick with the audiences, despite the absence of an original plot. Here, Siva has the most dependable Nayanthara in a strong female lead role along with a wonderful child artist Anikha to make the film appeal to family audiences.
The first half of the film is filled with the festive mood, which enlightens the overall ambience. Compared to the first half, the second half has a dip with few low points. The high moments that were seen in the trailer of the film become the high points in the film as well. The family emotions work neatly and it is not overdone.
Ajith shines totally as Thooku Durai and his ‘alapparai’ is enjoyable throughout. The story takes place in two different places, Koduvilarpatti and Mumbai, and Ajith shows a good amount of variation with his acting. His Madurai dialect adds to the nativity and the authenticity. Ajith is seen at his casual best in the light hearted scenes. Whenever the screenplay faces a dip, Ajith comes as a saviour. Not to forget, Thala Ajith’s single take dance in the last bit of ‘Adchi Thooku’. The audience will definitely enjoy that portion.
Plus Points :
- Background Score by Iman
- Cinematography by Vettri
- Edit by Ruben
Minus Points :
- Vilain Characterization
- Predictable Screenplay
D Iman’s background score & Vetri’s visuals are equally supportive of the film and enhances the stardom of Ajith. Kannaana Kanney song picturisation brings out the beautiful emotions between a father and a daughter. A few notable shots visually communicate the relationship between Ajith and his fans.
Director Siva is very clear with his intentions who puts forth an entertaining rural action drama filled with family emotions and other elements. He understands the pulse of the fans and the family audience and delivers a entertaining product. It wouldn’t be wrong if we label Viswasam as the best film, out of the four films from Ajith – Siva combination.
Verdict : Siva & Ajith’s comeback & perfect festival time release! – A pakka Family Entertainer go for it.!
Viswasam Movie Rating : 3/5
Petta & Viswasm has different storylines. One should enjoy the show, both movies has mass & family elements just the celebrate the movie ignore the fans negativity.
