Remaking Telugu blockbuster hit of Pawan Kalyan starrer ‘Attarintiki Daredi’, will this Sundar C – STR combination in ‘Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven’ will be a super hit in Tamil as well?


Raghunandhan (Nassar) is a great business man who lives in Spain with his son (Suman) and his grandson, Aadhi (STR) who is almost about to take over his grandfather, Raghunandhan’s business whereas in one instance Aadhi finds his grandfather to be without peace because of not seeing his daughter, Nandhini (Ramya Krishnan) due to a dispute which arouse because of marrying Prakash (Prabhu) before 20 years. Wanting to talk to his daughter inspite of all the conflicts, Raghunandhan conveys his last wish to his grandson, Aadhi to bring back Nandhini to him. How Aadhi convinces his aunt, Nandhini who is stubborn and holds a great business position in India? How will his driver attempt as ‘Raja’ workout to make his aunt understand about his grandfather’s affection on her even after many years? What will be the hindrances he faces? Will he go back with failure or with his aunt, Nandhini to Spain and will he fulfil his old grandfather’s wish is all about ‘Vantha Rajavathaan Varuvaen’!


From the moment STR lands in India, the comedy sequences involving VTV Ganesh, ‘Robo’ Shankar and many other supporting actors has been so much engaging till the intermission whereas the effort of showing it colourful has been maintained in the trademark of this Sundar C’s directorial as well. However it is clearly seen that there is no risk taken to change any of the scenes even though it is a remake movie, the second half has been well adjusted with Yogi Babu’s love tragedy scenes and using the real life instances and dialogues of STR in a comical way. The biggest minuses can be mentioned as the CG shots which have been shown then and there and ‘Hiphop Tamizha’ Adhi’s background scoring which seems to be irritated mainly in the second half. Other than that, the second half actually can be stated as the normal comical conflicts which come in every Sundar C’s movie. Apart from all these, cinematography of Gopi Amarnath and editing of N. B. Srikanth has been pretty much decent throughout the movie.


Travelling in a different route after ‘Chekka Chivantha Vaanam’ and leaving his general style of acting, STR has performed in the level of what is actually needed to the movie. Paired up with STR, Megha Akash has done a good job such that at some instances her voice seemed to be really weird in the second half. As one of his aunt’s daughter, Catherine Tresa seemed to be cute in the way she had appeared though it was a very small character for her. Once again Ramya Krishnan has acted in such a way that nobody can be the apt actor for the character she has owed. And as Ramya Krishnan’s husband, Prabhu, as a father and a grandfather, Nassar, as STR’s father, Suman, Yogi Babu, VTV Ganesh, ‘Robo’ Shankar, Radha Ravi and many other actors have performed their role well.

What works?

1) Satisfied and linear first half

2) Comedy

3) STR

What doesn’t work?

1) Second half

2) Background score and CG sequences

On the whole, without noticing any logic mistakes and if you are concerned about time passing in a theatre only with comedy, this ‘Vantha Rajavathaan Varuvaen’ will be a great show!


Emotional but entertaining ‘Raja’ is this ‘Vantha Rajavathaan Varuvaen’!
