Reviews 8-Oct-2011 3:35 PM IST Top 10 Cinema Comments

Every actor aspires to take up cop's role as they consider the characteriztion to be a prestigious one in their career. This time, it's Nandha picking the role and he does it in his own panache. The film is directed by RNR Manohar, who earlier made his debut directorial with the film 'Kandhakottai'. The film is produced by Kalpathy S Agoram, Kalpathy S Suresh and Kalpathy S Ganesh under the banner name of AGS Entertainments.

What do most of the cop stories deal with? Good Vs Baddies. There is nothing new about 'Vellore Maavattam' as the film's title and the characterization of Nandha itself gives a clear picture about what the film is all about.

Muthukumar (Nandha) plays the role of an IPS officer born to a vegetable vendor. It has been his father's dream to see his son achieve this dream position. Having accomplished with the long run of dream, he gets posting at Vellore and sets down to clean the city, which draws his enemies closer. A local bigwig (Azhagam Perumal) with his connections with league of politicians and police officers try stopping him from his action. But it's about how the protagonist wins over the evil and makes the society...

As mentioned earlier, there is nothing special about the film as it reminiscences of several cop stories dating from late 80s to the last week release of 'Vedi'. On the performance, Nandha does his part very well and his hard work embellishes his characterization to a greater extent. He his spells his best in the action sequences while he needs some improvization over the romantic portions as his chemistry with his co-stars doesn't stand out as perfect. Poorna has to shed down her own perception of 'Asin' image and make something impressive from her part.

Azhagam Perumal is best with his usual style of performance while Santhanam steals the show with his rib-tickling comedy tracks. But it could turn to be a best approach if he can avoid double entendres.

On the technical front, the film doesn't boast of much brilliance except editing that is so crisp and neat.

'Vellore Maavattam' has some interesting parts, but they don't have anything new and special to look upon. But when it comes to marking the final verdict, the film belongs to Nandha for his appealing performance.
