No worries and no logical reasoning – In fact, the most predominant quotients that one can easily be occupied with before walking in for a Rajesh movie. He keeps us assured of offering something more hilarious and entertaining. It’s quite evident with his erstwhile movies like Siva Manasula Sakthi, Boss Engira Baskaran, Oru Kal Oru Kannadi and All in All Azhagu Raja.
Rajesh’s current release Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga is a romantic comedy that traverses through the lives of two friends and how the girlfriends change their course of lives.
It’s a fast and protest for Arya and Santhanam, who have been friends from their childhood days. They have a serious issue (Though hilarious when you know the actual reason) of protesting the bad deeds of their wives and girlfriends who give up on them for ridiculous reasons. The media channels arrive, a much celebrated Akila (Shakila) joins the protest and a much herculean assistant commission of police (Vishal) joins them at the final act. During this interim, the story is narrated in flashback involving Arya’s love with Tamannaah and how the newlywed couple Santhanam and Bhanu has the issues splitting them up.
There isn’t much to bring up points on ‘What works?’ and ‘What doesn’t work? as we do usually. The film indeed is a tailor made comedy entertainer, where they could be less factors to bring up for analysis. To start off with the positive aspects, Rajesh has made a decent comeback befitting to his usual zone. The film has usual stuffs of humour laced with friendship and love. But we cannot exactly say that it’s best than the first two films of Rajesh namely SMS and BEB although the film is filled with lively moments. What makes the film special is the witty punch lines of all the actors, especially the showstopper Santhanam. Rajesh realising the rise of Santhanam’s stardom has utilized him efficiently giving some importance. Moreover, the song sequence of ‘Lucka Maatikicchu’ has all our eyes set on Santhanam’s stylish dance rather than looking into Arya and the item girl who looks sassy. On the other end, the pattern or panache remains the same and we can easily predict what’s gonna happen. Nevertheless that doesn’t actually stand up as hassling hurdles. The songs ‘Lucka Maatikichu’ and ‘Subscriber’ are okay and Imman who has been delivering good albums in the past could have done something better here as well.
It’s a comedy film and doesn’t involve anything like Slapstick. Since everything depends on witty lines, the actors try to deliver the dialogues with best efforts. Arya is simple and is okay with his hilarious portions. Tamannaah looks beautiful and her cute expressions are appreciable. Bhanu toning down her looks is appreciable. Santhanam is the absolute cynosure of every eye. Others in the cast like Lollu Sabha Swaminathan, Vidyullekha Raman and Vishal’s cameo has its own toast of humour.
1. Humorous punch lines
What doesn’t work?
1. Nothing special with the plot
4. Time worn pattern of Rajesh movies
Overall, when looking into VSOP, it’s a mindless entertainer that you can grab your tickets and at the end of show feel it’s worth watching out.
Verdict : A Toast of fun and humour
Rating : 4/10
