It has been a while catching a first day show , finally the time arrived for me to catch this flick named "vettaikaran" , i am still wondering how many movies will people make ending with this "karan" ! So this was named and the advertisements were literally killing ( the time you switch on the TV you can very well see the movie promo driving you mad ) . I caught up this movie last friday ( 18.12.09) with few of my die hard vijay fans. To be frank i am not a great supporter of Vijay and his acting , but likes his appearance on the screen from which he attracts a large fan following of all ages .

So coming to the movie , again a lengthy one running for 2 hours and 45 minutes ( still cannot believe  for this movie ) Vijay gets a Robinhood kinda intro , chasing a policeman in a horse !! (for a change ... ) , he demands justice from the policeman for running into an old man and gets the old man compensation from the police . This is according to me a repeat from some movie a while ago ( just not able to recollect what that is ) .

The movie moves on , Vijay aspires to become a police officer on seeing his role model ( devaraj an encounter specialist ) , it is indeed a pity that Vijay is shown here in bad light saying he needed 4 attempts to clear 12th std ( the no of attempts is not sure !!) and he still aspires to become a top cop . Here is what i am not able to understand the logic , he starts driving an Auto and studies in a college , not many can do this seriously . The movie actually starts with an encounter scene , enacted by the above told specialist Devaraj .

Vijay begins his journey to Chennai and meets his lady love (Anushka) , here starts the movie , Vijay a.k.a "POLICE RAVI" starts singing duet with her ( hah .. the usual stuff ) , not before he runs into trouble and discovers her(Anushka`s bike ) and also finds a place in her heart . This runs on and the first half of the movie is indeed gripping , but it reminds me of all the famous vijay flicks ( eg ., Ghilli ) .

The story is very much predictable like the case of a lower grade creative essay written by a school student . The villain does all sorts of non sense in the public yet everyone remains a mute spectator , the only thing that has changed is the villain`s attire ( the father villain of course ) , he has done a nice job . But his flashback (self narrated ) seems to be unacceptable(watch the movie you will know why )

So this is how it pans out , the hero vs villain fight  , the hero ( hope you know who the hero is ) , runs into the villain`s hands , and wages a war and the final result is "TRUTH ALONE TRIUMPHS". The movie has a lot of  loose plots as well , the villain not able to swim and the blaring sound of him are the worst part . Vijay seems to be flexible in all his stunts but it seems a bit unrealistic at times to see a single guy beating up 20 people .

The music is not bad , Naan adicha .. is still humming in my mouth and the others are also close to be good . The background score seems to be overshadowed but  , too much Dishyum Dishyum , makes a hole in your ears !!

The second half seems to be lengthy and loses the plot , you see Vijay starting a Detective agency and a having a SUV from nowhere ( to remind you people he was an auto driver before this !!) .

So the final verdict is " OLD WINE SERVED IN NEW BOTTLE " ( that tastes bitter !!!)
My rating is

* * out of a possible 5 .
