Velayudham Movie Review : Victory Vijay


Velayudham Movie Review

Cast: Vijay, Genelia, Hansika, Santhanam, Saranya Mohan.
Direction: Jayam Raja
Production: Ascar V Ravichandran
Music: Vijay Antony

It’s a film for Vijay fans. Director Jayam Raja manages to deliver what he had promised. He was clear from the start it would be a mass commercial entertainer and finally lives up to his words. Velayudham is a Vijay show that would appeal his fans. He has not tried anything innovative rather sticks to formula film-making – song, fights, comedy and romance.

Velayudham defies all logic. It has no new theme. It is a regular Vijay film. Wonder what makes it a good watch? The energy the lead stars ooze on the screen and quick unfolding of events.

Three cheers to Raja for weaving a script to Vijay’s strength. It is nothing but triumph of good over evil. It seems to be  borrowed from many a Shankar films. Still it works.

Story Line

A journalist Bharathi (Genelia D’Souza), after sting operations show the world the real face of corrupt people. She earns the wrath of powerful persons and a couple of her colleagues get killed too. She decides to put an end to the menace and for that, she creates an imaginary character called Velayudham, claiming that he would teach a lesson to evil elements.

And there is a happy milkman Velayudham (Vijay) in a village, who leads a content life with his younger sister Kauveri (Saranya Mohan) and cousin Vaidehi (Hansika Motwani).

He gets the shock of his life when he comes to the city to withdraw the money he had saved for his sister’s wedding. Series of events ensure that Bharathi meets Velayudham and she urges him to give life to the imaginary character she had conceived.

The rest is all but racy and riveting fare typical to Vijay’s earlier films.

Cast Review

Vijay is smart and energetic. He is cool and casual all through. He dances admirably well, for it is his cup of tea.

Hansika and Genelia fit the bill well.

The likes of Shayaji Shinde, Sampath Raj, Manivannan are there to add support to the play while Santhanam walks away with honpus for his one-liners.

Vijay Antony’s music is loud but fits the theme well. Priyan’s cinematography compliments the story.


Velayudham, produced by Aascar V Ravichandran, is the destination for Vijay fans, though there lacunae in the form of familair theme, lengthy latter half and songs putting brakes on the pace at places.

Velayudham: Vijay’s Victory


  1. super duper hit machi…………. vela vela vela vel than.. intha diwali namaku semma collection ma…. thambi surya ippa sustain pannu da papom… mass  hero kum chumma munu hit kudukura hero kum ithan vithiyasam… ne innum valaranum raaja. thalaivar line up ellam onnumey aata kuda mudiyathu… kavalan-hit, vel- going to be BB.. ithukey thanga maatriyae.. ini varum kaalangal romba kashtam kanna unaku 

  2. Thanks for acknowledging  the collective verdict – its not like we are against Surya ..he’s also a fine actor but no one can beat our Iilayathalapathy in the box office – look at his MASS not just in TN but also in karnataka and Kerala- The Next SUPER STAR is HERE -Vijay Rockz!

  3. ஓம் நாராயணா……….. யாரு நடிச்ச படம் எப்படி போனாலும் எனக்கு கவலை இல்லை. ஏனென்றால் நான் Power Star Srinivasan  ரசிகன்……………………………………
    என்னைக்கும் என் தலைவன் படம் வெற்றி தான்

  4. Naanum Rowdy thaan Naanum rowdy thaan kalathula erangio vadivel maari aaiteney suriya… Vijay vs Ajith… Suriya la oru aalah.. avan nethu penja mazhalila nalaiku molaika pora kaalan… 6 packs vachi 6 padam ootalam… 60 padam oota mudiyadhu… sari sari next padathula heels pota serupa suriya ku kudunga pa heroine edupu alavuku naadhu varuvaan…chinna pasangala yaarukitta…

  5. Cinema is an entertainment BUSINESS. PROFIT is a must. Whatever is the demand it needs to be met. Nambala mathiri maattammave yosikira crowd thaan cinema theatre kku poi kaasu selavu seiyaravanga. So our needs are met here. So, Vijay ellam thappu solleva mudiyathu. Yennaikku namba intellectual understanding develope pannikkaporoma annaikku thaan Vijay and other heros intellectual meaningful practical stories panna mudiyum. Lets hope the future generations start being practical than being in a fantasy world (Eg: No movies other than indian movies have forced duet songs in movies). I know it is difficult for many kollytalk viewers to accept this. But hope its a food for thought.

  6. dai soola karuppa..neeyae surya fan name la comment  pottutu soola karupan perula vanthu neeyae reply panriyae..unakku maanam..soodu… sorana ithu ellam illa nu theriyum…iruntha ippadi yen panna pora…

  8. A shame movie work… ubisoft lovers hate this cheating movie….. am the big fan of assassins creed played all editions and like its story also actions… vijay never cant do that’s action in his career…..

  9. ubisoft surly punish the filim makers.. who do this bad movie just know who is altair and how he grow as the master assassin in the world.

  10. we are talking about acting in films.. for acting personality is not a matter.. anyways poor guys doesnt know what is acting being his fans

  11. Azad!! Its a remake of an old Telugu movie Azad!! This guy is sure that he will flop if he shows originality… Eg sura, vetaikaran… Hits eg ; Gilli (telugu okadu remake), Pokiri (telugu remake) Average hit kavallan (malayalam body guard) Get a life people who call him as a ghreat hero!!!

  12. Great work by hero and director. its a remake or copy of assasians creed whatever it is we enjoyed thoroughly.
    Thats what we want. Epdiyo kudutha kaasu waste aagala. its worth to watch

  13. very nice movie its conformly suppppppppppperrrrrrrrrr dooooooooooooper hitttt!!!!!!!!!!!!! among vijays 51 film my favourite movie is velayudham

  14. nee unoda suniya mudu….. nadipuna enna nu unga vijay theriyuma…… poi ava sunni puduchu umbu…. only vikram, ajith and surya knows acting in tamil cinema……

  15. did the movie entertain you…did it make u laugh ? did u made u to forget your sorrow..then enjoy it…just dont blame everyone without no particular reasons

  16. what u r sayin is acceptable.

    But hollywood movies may not have duets, but they have other fantasies like  Tarzan, George of Jungle, Predator,Spices, Terminator, King Kong -where a big gorrila falls in love with a girl, etc.

    Cinema is a creative imagery world. When we watch a movie, be it tamil,english, chinese (where ppl fly in the air nd fight) ,we cannot accept logic in it. Its a basic temporary  entertainment.

    As long as ppl take it as entertaintment and dont analyse it, I think its all safe and sound…

  17. Great come back.. Great variation from romantic flick kaavalan to action-comedy-mass entertainer.. VIJAY in Next level Waiting for next change NANBAN another BB.. Chillax!!

  18. thala antha p..l ma.. always acting only ace directors movie..but our thalapathy..and thala gaiving chance debut directors..but that p..after kaka kaka last by 8 years he doesn’t act in debut directors flick..

  19. this guy only can do same type of movies. he is a star who has no expression. the 7 am arivu was well scriped and executed movie for the current generaton. the movie can only reach the mass who are educated and not like velayutham.

  20. ohh we now ur a surya fan and can’t take the fact that 7am arivu is stupid. wikepedia tells you more about bhodidharman than what this film did. plz don’t cry.

  21. VIJAY has no expression aa??? I think you are a dumbass Surya fan… To know about vijay expressions 
    Watch Kavalan from the past, Docomo advertisement from the present & Nanban from the future.

    Pity Surya Fan….. Doesn’t know what to say After 7am arivu flop…….

  22. .or.. they have to watch Velayudham once.. <img style=”outline-width: 0px; outline-style: initial; outline-color: initial; color: #3a3a3a; font-family: ‘Lucida grande’, Tahoma, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px; line-height: 16px; text-align: left; background-color: #eceff5; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; border: initial none initial;” src=”” title=”Tongue out” border=”0″ alt=”Tongue out”/> to.. recover from 7am arivu headache…. :-E :-E :-E :-E :-E ..

  23. Thulladha manamum thullum, poovae unakkaga,love today, priyamudan,Sivakaasi, tirupachi etc….. ALL THESE SUPER HIT FILMS SCRIPTS ARE ORIGINAL…. PLEASE SHUT YOUR HOLE PEOPLE WHOEVER NOT ACCEPTING HIM AS A GREAT HERO!!!!!!!!!  😛

  24. duuuuuuuuude, did you just say wiki tells you more about bodhidharman than what this film did? I don’t know if you are aware of this but: film is not an encyclopedia. It is a director’s creation of a plot. Just because a character in the movie has stomach cancer or dementia, doesn’t mean the whole movie has to talk and research about stomach cancer or dementia. Creativity is degraded because of people like you.
