Vizha Movie review
Coming from the house of the people behind the super successful Naalaya Iyakkunar - JV Media Dreams, this Sri Thenandal Films and Azure Entertainment production Vizha is unique indeed! Vizha is the coming of age movie for Master Mahendran, who sheds his 'Master' tag and turns hero and new face Malvika Menon plays the female lead. Barathi Balakumaran, a winner at Naalaya Iyakkunar and his associate Raja have transformed their successful short film Udhiri to this Vizha.
Sundaram (Mahendran) is a well known and much sought after Parai player who performs at functions - mostly death houses. Rakku (Malvika Menon) is the granddaughter of a famous dirge singer Papathi, who is training to become a dirge singer herself. Sundaram and Rakku meet at death houses and love blossoms between the two. Being from neighbouring villages, the two don't get many opportunities to meet and death houses are the only meeting points for them. Sundaram and his gang of friends are talented but happy go lucky guys who get into trouble often because of their mischievous ways and tongue-in-cheek way of talking to people. Manimaran (Yugendran) - a respectable man in Rakku's village, takes care of important jobs for the village biggie's house. After the death of the benign village big man, his cunning wife Aayi takes over the handling of all his property and affairs. Their grandson (a friend of Sundaram) is in love with a poor girl, but Aayi plans to marry him off to the daughter of a relative (Kadhal Dhandapani).
Sundaram and Rakku's love begins at a death house and flourishes at subsequent death houses. However, Rakku's grandmother does not want her to marry Sundaram, and immediately agrees to Manimaran's mother's request of taking Rakku to be her daughter in law. Actually, this has been instigated by people who don't want Sundaram and Rakku to get together. Manimaran, who likes Sundaram and helps him at times, is not aware of his feelings for Rakku. Aayi's plans for her grandson's future are completely foiled and her fury becomes uncontrollable. The fate of the village's welfare works are at stake. Meanwhile, apart from Sundaram's friends, the only other person who supports his love is his uncle, who also happens to be related to Rakku. When the uncle is murdered and Sundaram is hunted by a whole gang of baddies looking to kill him, what does he do? Who is trying to hunt Sundaram? What will happen to Sundaram and Rakku's love? What will happen to Rakku and Manimaran's engagement? What did Sundaram do to antagonise so many people? All solutions to these questions lie in another death! Whose will it be? Watch Vizha on the big screens to know!
Barathi Balakumaran's Vizha is a one of it's kind movie. Set in the backdrop of quaint village customs this romantic story, with it's fair share of comedy and action, has been perfectly scripted by the director. After a comic first half, the serious second half brings a good balance to the movie. Mahendran, who was prone to tend a little towards overacting when he was a child artiste, has shown that he has matured with age and can handle serious roles as well as comedy with astounding ease. The experience of facing a camera hundreds of times in his childhood has stood him in good stead, as he has given a good performance. It is really difficult to accept that this is Malvika Menon's first movie. She has played her part really well. All the supporting cast excel in their roles and the actors who play Aayi and Sundaram's uncle need special mention. The director and his team have ensured that the nativity in the movie stays true from start to end. The cinematography and editing are value additions to Vizha. James Vasanthan's music adds to the feel of the movie and his melodies are lovely.
Vizha - is a unique and successful celebration of love! Don't miss it!
