People has been anticipating the release of this film since it was launched and here it is.In short, it is a mixture of human emotions. A remake of the 2010 Telugu hit, Vedam and directed by Radhakrishna Jagarlamudi who directed the original as well. The film was eagerly anticipated because two reasons which are, an ensemble starcast which is a rarity in Tamil cinema and Yuvan's music.
Vaanam is STR's first movie after the success of the romantic flick Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya. As Cable Raja, he played his role as a slum dweller to perfection. This proves he can really play varied roles. Bharath played the role of a budding rockstar well. His body language and dialogues suits him perfectly while Vega was adequate in her role as Bharath's companion.Anushka reprised her role from the original and she did a good job here as well. Like Anushka, Saranya also reprised her role from the original. As a poor weaver, she excels in her role. Her body language and dialogue delivery is brilliant.Prakashraj as usual, played his role with finesse. This time, he played the role of a discriminated Muslim with sheer excellence. Santhanam was good as STR's sidekick. He impresses with his usual comic antics alongside VTV Ganesh as well. Debutant Jasmin Bhasin performed relatively good and fills the requirements of her character. Hats off to her for dubbing in her own voice. An impressive attempt.
One of the highlights of the film is Yuvan Shankar Raja's music. YSR has done a wonderful job. The film's BGM suits the mood of the film well but it is kinda loud in certain parts of the film. Evandi Unna Pethan is definitely the one of the best songs along with No Money No Honey. Both songs were well-choreographed and STR's dance moves are mesmerising.
Nirav Shah's cinematography is excellent as usual. The colour tone suits the scenes perfectly although the angles were a bit dizzying in certain scenes. The songs were well picturized.
Stunts by Silva is commendable and apt for the action scenes. Anthony's editing is crisp and the film does not drag.
Vaanam is a potpourri of emotions and the performance of the cast is excellent plus it does come with a message for all. A different treat for movie buffs and I can easily say that it is one of the best movies to come out of the Tamil cinema industry.
