Vedalam: Film Review – A Brother, Like No Other

Verdict: An out-and-out entertainer.

If Ajith was worried that he couldn’t wish each of his fans individually on Deepavali this year, then he needn’t worry any more… Vedalam is the best gift any Ajith fan can ask for.

We’re not going to exaggerate and tell you that this is the best film out of Kollywood this year, but what we will tell you is that this is definitely one of the most entertaining releases of the year. 

Pure 100% masala is what you can expect from Vedalam, and it delivers and how! With heaps of perfectly-timed comedy, a background score that keeps the adrenalin going, some pretty decent acting and a story (which while super unbelievable) that catches you by the collar from the very first frame. 

Siva delivers again after Veeram and while it comes as no surprise, we’re pretty convinced he adores Ajith, just as much as the veteran actor seems to love this director/cinematographer’s work. 

The film is divided into two very different stories, split quite perfectly by the interval. Pre-interval, the film largely revolves around Ajith and his sister (Lakshmi Menon) settling down in Kolkata, a city portrayed very strangely through director Siva’s eyes. With a strange obsession with religious deities and festivals not necessarily particular to Kolkata, the film chugs along till the actual story starts unfolding, post-interval. 

Anirudh Ravichander needs to be complimented for the spectacular background score that outdoes any movie we’ve seen before. From intense dubstep to some of the most creative club music used as a score — he’s got the film covered. The songs of the film are quite beautifully shot, but other than “Don’t you mess with me” featuring Shruti Haasan and Shaktishree Gopalan, nothing really stays with the audience.

We could tell you the story and spoil your experience. Instead, we’d rather you watch the movie and discover why the film is called Vedalam (Phantom). You won’t be disappointed with the film, and that’s a promise. 

Beautifully crafted with enough emotion, family values and loads of action — Vedalam also has a beautiful message for all of India’s young men: respect women enough to ensure they feel safe anywhere. The brother-sister bond is the highlight of this masala film and we were left teary-eyed on many occasions.

Take your family for this one. Oh and yes, before we forget… Shruti Haasan manages to elicit a few laughs. Maybe, comedy should be her ‘thing’ instead?

Why You Should Watch This Movie:

Ashwin is his usual gorgeous self, while Lakshmi Menon plays the dutiful sister to the dot. The film celebrates goodness and emphasizes how goodness eventually breaks down even the hardest of hearts. That message seems to be director Siva and Ajith’s true Deepavali gift.
