Vallinam Movie review
After being in the making for quite sometime, Nakul's Vallinam, produced by V. Ravichandran's Aascar Films (P) Ltd., hits screens today.
Vallinam is the story of a basketball player in a college - Nakul, and his love for the game. The movie is a take on how sports other than Cricket are not being given their due in our country. Our hero is a basketball lover who aims to make it big in the sport. However, he crosses paths with a Cricket player - Siddharth Jonnalagadda, who is out to show that his sport is superior than anything else. With the help of his coach (Atul Kulkarni), Nakul and his group of friends and basketball team-mates have to rally around all kinds of odds to achieve their goal. But, the journey to their dream is not all smooth sailing. There are a lot of incidents and specifically people, who want to derail the team's plans. Watch Vallinam on the big screens to know how the movie unfolds...
Director Arivazhagan of Eeram fame is back with Vallinam. This time he has chosen a movie rooted in sports and has done a good job. Nakul has excelled in his role as a basketball player and all the hard work he has put in shows in his performance. Debutante Mrudhula Basker is very good, and impresses in her first outing itself. Thaman's music is good and provides the right tempo for the screenplay. A movie in the sports genre is not very common in Tamil cinema and Vallinam is a very good attempt. Veterans Atul Kulkarni and Jayaprakash bolster the movie with their performances. One has to definitely watch the movie till the end credits, as a lot of stars who have made our country in different sports are mentioned, along with a special mention for a special star from our own Kollywood. The train sequence needs a special mention and the climax has been stunningly done.
Vallinam is a very good movie on sports that definitely warrants a watch.
