A film's underlying tone is what makes it popular among audience. When director Vijay came up with a genuine script that deals with the life of tribals and how corporates try to destroy natural resources all the time in Vanamagan, the film reached the audience as it should.

Jayam Ravi and Sayyeesha’s performance needed a special mention, especially the hero who had to undergo so much hardship to bring it to life. Vanamagan’s songs by Harris Jayaraj further boosted its success making it a huge hit in Tamil Nadu and worldwide. The film enters its successful first week today.
