Villu Review

I expected this to be just an average movie as it is directed by Prabhu Deva, the mediocre director who puts more emphasis on individual scenes and minute details and misses the big picture. Scenes do not flow smoothly and you usually see jerkiness in the screenplay. I really hoped he would have corrected his mistakes and give us a fulfilling movie this time and I am let down once again.

Villu movie is worse than I expected and worse than Vijay's "Kuruvi" and I was totally disappointed to say the least. I sat through the entire movie even though I thought of leaving the theater right after the interval and at many times after the interval. There is nothing new in this movie that has to be mentioned in this Villu review.

Here is the story line of movie Villu:

Vijay (plays Pugazh) works for the Tamilnadu police and the movie is about how he takes revenge on 4 villains (prakashraj, anandraj and two others) for killing his father (played by another Vijay as Military officer Major Saravanan) 20 years ago. The flashback is shown in 10 minutes towards the end of the movie. He kills all four villains one by one. The last one is Prakashraj who gets killed in front of Vijay's distressed mom (Ranjitha). Yeah... I summarized it in just a few lines and there is nothing more to write. How original...and trendsetting...huh?

Perhaps director Prabhu deva thought he could make the movie interesting by making a tight screenplay and new situations and interesting scenes, but too bad, he missed it by a mile. Damn!

Villu Review Continued...

Even the comedy done by Vadivelu in Villu does not work out as there is nothing new. Well, there is a comedy scene where he fights with a cow and another scene where he dances for many kuthu songs like "Kaathaza kannala" and" naaka mukka". Too bad it does not fit well as it does not flow with the story. Both these scenes happen in Munich Germany, you have no idea why Vadivelu ends up in Munich. Some of the earlier scenes in the village back drop work okay as it is typical comedy, but again, I cannot understand why this movie needed those 30 minutes in the village.

The first scene in movie Villu starts off with Vijay single handedly capturing one of the four villains. Then abruptly story moves to a no-name village. Nayanthara (from "foreign" land) is visiting the village to attend someone's marriage. Just like Superstar Rajini's "Arunachalam", there are many scenes typical in a wedding environment followed by some bad guys making a problem right before tying the knot and how the hero Vijay beats 'em all up flying in the air and making way into Nayantara's heart. Vijay makes Nayantara fall in love with him only to meet her father (Prakashraj). She takes Vijay to Munich, Germany to meet her criminal father Prakashraj. Interval - so far okay... but right here is your chance to leave the theater. After this, it is literally, fight-song-fight-song-sentiment-climax fight- routine - maybe entertaining for someone who has not seen a lot of such movies but not for a typical movie buff who has seen thousands of same crap in all Indian languages.

Nayantara looks sexy... she has been given plenty of opportunity to show her tight abs, ass and a lot of cleavage show. I am sure her fans will go crazy. I cannot believe a big hero like actor Vijay will sort to cheap jokes which fit lesser actors like Silambarasan and Danush. For example, some double meaning scenes with Nayantara (dialogues like Nenju valicha massage..., how to pull a rope one stroke at a time, etc.).

My personal feeling is people have so much talent and all their hard work is wasted. Great acting, sincere effort, excellent camera work, superb stunts, lively dance numbers in fabulous costumes, exciting music - all for nothing. The movie is a total disappointment just because of the non existent story and pathetic screenplay. I wonder whose fault is that. Is this because directors really believe audience want to see an item song and a mind boggling fight sequence every 20 minutes of the movie? I think a gripping screenplay with or without a strong story will keep people in the theater. Or is it just the directors cannot see that?

Looks like I am mentioning only the negative things in this movie Villu review...probably because I am so disappointed with the execution and I am missing the good points in the movie. This is my personal opinion only and if you have good things to say or even other comments, feel free to post in the comments section below.

The director Prabhu deva is brain drained with absolutely no story. The movie has its typical masalas - tiring fights and dances. The comedy sucks!Its time Vadivelu sheds some lbs before he can see himself on another movie. Nayan can do a better job just walking around with Victoria secret undergarments than barely dressing up and trying to act. Her facial expressions are horrible especially in dances and when she tries hard to say a dialogue. How long she can continue to just expose herself without even making an attempt to act. She can try that in different kind of sleezy movies, probably doubling her salary. Its time movies like this should be totally boycotted so actors stop bankrupting more producers. If at all, let them gamble with their own investments. Surprised how Vijay is lucky to be even among the top tamil actors. Wonder if at all the actors get to watch their own movie after completion even once. The movie is a total WASTE of time & money.

Villu -Another Ghilli in vijay's career.It is more stylish film ever seen by tamilnadu.It challenges the stylish cool look which is given by the film Billa.Ravi varman's excellent cinematography beats and exceeds Niravshav's magic in Billa.

villu-the worst movie i hav ever seen and i never hope to see such a movie in the past.i m not even an ajith fan and i dint even like billa expect its making style.but villu hav nothing to offer.when every one praised prabhu deva after pokiri ,i m not convinced bcoz any 3rd class director with the support of vijay and huge money can copy ,the original pokiri frame by frame.soi waited for his own idea but this time even he shamelessly copied frmhindisoldier he cant even deliver a masala he proved himself a worst director and i even think perarasu and so many directors r better than prabhu deva and i think better he should go back to his department.again vijay is convinced that his fans r fools and he delivered a worst movie to entertain themand if his fans r really entertained by this movie ,i would think better they can go and fellinside the well along with vijay and nayantara.

After Pokkiri, Prabhu Deva and Vijay are back with 'Villu' a 'Power pack Pongal' for Vijay Fans. Vijay Fans in USA are thrilled to taste the feast two days prior to release in India. After two not so good movies such as ATM and Kuruvi, Vijay is back in form. As a rigid formula everyone in the theatre expect only a Mass entertainer from 'Pugazh'-Vijay, and Prabhu Deva has done his best to maintain all the elements needed to give a complete Vijay movie - with super hero intro, romance ,comedy, several fights, item songs and finally hero wins over the baddies.

villu 8 years ago

Hi i am villu .. (Vijay) .. I totally suck at acting .............

Please dont watch this movie .......... i was blackmailed by nayantara to act in this movie ........... she forced me to act ..............

Next time .. i will act in a better movie ... probably some movie where ...

There are only jokers n no villans ............

And we all jokers will go for a picnic ... n suddenly get attacked by veerappan (Yes. Veerappan is dead, may be for u. But i still beleive he is alive).

An then .. Veerappan takes me away and will ask all my fans for some money.

Isn' t it obvious that all my fans are ready to give their life for my sake.

So ........ Then All you people out there ... Will collect few million dollars (Veerappan doesnt know to count in rupees) for my sake and then i will successfully get out of veerappan.

Vijay's movies suck. I broke one of my new year's resolution of " never to watch a Vijay movie again in my life" to watch this worst movie of all time "Villu". My only question is what is Vijay thinking in his mind. He can never come near Rajini. He can never be a good actor forget about becoming a super star. My only advise to Vijay is to forget competing with Ajith and really concentrate on your acting. You dont show any expressions in your face. Please note that i am not an Ajith fan either. I hate them both. Vijay please get rid of your head weight, you are not GOD but just another human being. Stop acting like a retarded. we are not fools watching you on TV.

villu movies sucks to the max..yeah its showered with mind blowing scenes frm munich..but still its a disaster, luckily i didnt spend my money to watch it. Do Germanians speak english or germany??? i suggest movies like varanam ayiram & naan kadavul are worthy of watching...

Villu is the Worst Movie.. I have Ever Seen in Life time... I had Much Respect on prabu Deva.. I. Prabudeva is Someone Who has Acted In Great Movies Like Minasara Kanavu/Kaadalan... But i am Not Sure Wats Wrong with him Now...The Combination of Vijay+Prabudeva Have Ensured that There is No Quality Even Inj One Scene of The Movie... GOD SAVE TAMIL CINEMA
