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.
