Valluvan Vasuki Movie review
Thalaivar (Ponvannan), as his name indicates, is the head of a village. His sister is in love with his tractor driver and elopes with him on the day she is to marry a groom of her brother's choice. Thalaivar breaks down. His friend Anandha Konar (Ranjit) goes in search of the girl, finds her and tries to persuade her to return but she does not relent, preferring to settle down with her chosen husband. Shocked and offended, Thalaivar bans love affairs within his village.
Anandha Konar's wife dies, giving birth to a girl Vasuki (newcomer Swetha). Thalaivar, Anandha Konar and his mother bring her up with total love and affection. Konar's happiness revolves around the girl's well-being. Vasuki falls in love with Valluvan (newcomer Sathya), who operates the water tanker in the village and he also reciprocates her love. But they keep their romance a secret, fearing Vasuki's father's reaction, and in view of the ban on love affairs. Predictably, everyone, including Thalaivar and Konar, come to know about this affair. Enraged, they try to slaughter the lovers who flouted the rules. Then Vasuki decides to move away from the village. When both of them plan to elope from the village, Valluvan is caught in a predicament. His mother dies, so he cannot elope as planned.
Finally, the determined lovers fight against opposition and get married in the end.
Ranjit's role as an affectionate father is touching. He also demonstrates an appreciable friendship with Ponvannan. Both Ponvannan and Ranjit's performances are mature and contribute for the film's appeal. Newcomers Sathya and Swetha too have done well; Sathya also gets a chance to display his dancing talent. Kuyili, Seetha, Vasu Vikram, Muthukalai and director Bharathi in the supporting cast have added value to the story. Particularly, director Bharathi provides subtle comedy as Vasuki's guardian.
Music director S.A. Rajkumar also appears in a song sequence. There are five songs in the movie in S.A. Rajkumar's music. A couple of them stand out. Rajee's camerawork and Peter Babiya's editing are good.
A better and less predictable screenplay would have helped matters further.
