Valimai Solid: Ajith, Huma Quresshi, Kartikeya Gummakonda, Bani
Valimai Director: Shanker Raman
The place to Watch: In Theatres
Evaluation by: Russel D’Silva
Ajith’s fixation with the letter, ‘V’, continues after Veeram, Vedalam, Vivegam and Viswasam together with his new Tamil biggie, Valimai, as does his penchant for collaborating with one Director on a number of movies in a row. Thala did it with Siva on the 4 aforementioned motion pictures, of which solely Vivegam failed each critically and commercially. Valimai is now the famous person’s second collaboration with Director H. Vinoth after the extraordinarily effectively reviewed Nerkonda Paarvai, which was additionally a field workplace success, with one other movie between the 2 after this within the pipeline. So, does Valimai observe the critically acclaimed and commercially profitable double whammy of Ajith’s earlier ‘V’ entries like Veeram, Vedalam and Viswasam, or does it falter like Vivegam? Effectively, reality be informed, it lands someplace within the center.
So, are you enthusiastic about what to observe this weekend or what to observe this week and questioning whether or not Valimai is price your time? Scroll down for my full Valimai film evaluation…
What’s it about
Tremendous-cop ACP Arjun Kumar (Ajith) is transferred to Chennai to scrub the metropolitan, which has grow to be a mixed hub for medicine, murders, robberies, and chain-snatching, with the center and lower-middle class struggling essentially the most. When he finds out that every one these crimes are linked to 1 gang of anarchic bikers, headed by one Naren (Kartikeya Gummakonda, he realises that the town may be dealing with its greatest menace but.
Watch the Valimai trailer beneath:
Director H. Vinoth shows his aptitude for white-knuckled, adrenaline-pumping motion, with the bike chase sequences and stunt choreography coming throughout as genuinely unique, progressive and a factor to behold. The post-interval freeway chase scene between a number of bikes and a police convoy alone is definitely worth the worth of admission. Ajith Kumar is on the entrance and centre of each minute element Valimai, and it will be a moot level to even spotlight how a lot comfortable the veteran is in such roles. Huma Qureshi and Gurbani Decide aka Bani are merely there for eye-candy, however the sweet they supply is little doubt extraordinarily candy.
If solely the adrenaline being pumped had extra of a heartbeat, Valimai would’ve been a thrill-a-minute experience. The screenplay has barely something of word to supply, and is so interminably lengthy that you simply marvel if editor was despatched on go away. Surprisingly, Yuvan Shankar Raja’s background rating additionally does not go away a mark, and with no songs thrown in, the parts with out motion really take a look at your endurance. And as charming Huma Qureshi and Bani are to have a look at, it is 2022, and girls must be given elements with extra meat. Furthermore, Kartikeya Gummakonda is all model and no substance (as a result of his half-baked character arc and no fault of his) as an antagonist, leaving a tepid affect throughout his confrontation moments with Ajith Kumar.
Plus, you get the distinct feeling that the movie suffers from a Dhoom hangover, proper all the way down to a number of the dialogues. The screenplay can be fairly paradoxical at occasions, condoning police brutality at one second and condemning it within the subsequent, to not point out how ludicrous one of many police departments is made to look, virtually resembling a recreation present, whereas Ajith leaves your head scratching at occasions with how he decides to twist the regulation in misguided endeavours of doing good.
The bike chases, stunt choreography and Ajith present make Valimai watchable. Simply do not go in anticipating a lot else. I am going with 3 out of 5 stars.
