Silambarasan TR's Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu, the latest release in Tamil cinema, is off to a flying start at the box office and has taken the biggest ever opening for a Simbu film. The film has already entered the profit zone in its first three to four days of run and with this, Silambarasan TR continues to maintain his success streak. The film opened to mixed to positive reviews from the audiences and the team is getting ready for the second part which is expected to start soon once STR and Gautham Menon complete their ongoing other commitments. Meanwhile, here are some points why we feel Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu deserves watch on the big screen.

Instead of waiting for the OTT release, people who are yet to catch the film in the theatres, can witness it for these reasons:

1. Silambarasan TR's performance - VTK is Simbu's show all the way. He has completely lived the role of Muthu and nowhere do we see the star inside him steal the limelight. STR has been Muthu right from the beginning until the end. His subtle yet classy performance with a certain level of calmness makes you glued to your screens and his portrayal as Muthu can surely be called as one of his best ever performances. Silambarasan TR has always been a delight to watch and VTK is no exception. In fact, he delivers a much-nuanced and mature performance here.

2. A.R.Rahman's Music - The legendary composer's work is the heart of Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu. Every time, the music of 'Marakkuma Nenjam' plays on the big screen, it elevates the impact of the scene to greater levels. His music hits you on the right levels and helps as a narrative tool. His already successful songs like 'Mallipoo' and 'Kaalathukkum Nee Venum' appeal much better with the visuals. Rahman also takes us by surprise by playing a rap song sung by Neeraj Madhav during the intermission fight sequence. The legend's background score is the life of VTK and to experience that magic, catch the film in the theatres with a good sound system.

3. Gautham Vasudev Menon's Direction - With VTK, Gautham Vasudev Menon has stepped out of his comfort zone and has delivered something very unlike GVM. This film does not have voice overs which have been an integral part of his movies. There is no stylised treatment and on a contrasting note, this one is dark and intense. Right from the usage of colours to the staging, Gautham Menon has made sure the film looks different from his regular pattern of films.

4. Lead to Second Part - Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu ends with a bang with the lead to the second part. The last 3 minutes of VTK is the lead to the second part and in this segment, we see a completely different Silambarasan TR. He looks rugged, sports a thick beard, and carries the swag with conviction. His makeover as Muthu after becoming a don is a treat for the fans and it would just make you leave the cinema hall with a high.

5. Mallipoo Video Song - The visuals of Mallipoo is the current trending topic on social media. The segment where Simbu folds his lungi and begins to dance along with the boys is a vibe. This segment is an instant charmer that will put a smile on your face and Simbu is one of those actors who can instantly make you vibe along with his energy. Despite being a small segment, many people are returning to the theatres for a second watch just to witness the video song of 'Mallipoo'.

6. Jeyamohan's Writing - Writer Jeyamohan is the anchor of the film. It is his script and writing that keeps the film flowing without any deviations. The story starts from the first frame and there are interesting parallels drawn between two characters - Muthu and Sreedharan, who are put in a same situation. How one comes out of the dark world and how the other gets sucked into it is shown in an interesting fashion with effective establishment of their character arcs. The scene where Muthu and his boss Garjee talk at the hotel is a beautiful written scene. There are many such well-written scenes that keep you invested.

So, these are some of the reasons why we feel Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu deserves a watch on the big screen.
