Vettayadu Vilayadu - Kaaka Kaaka 2

In more ways than one, VV is a fitting sequel to KK. In fact the title screen itself tags the movie as "Another episode in a Police Officer's life".

Vettayadu Vilayadu is a semi-thriller that focuses more on crime investigation and doesn't have the kind of romance, that people could fall in love with, as in the case of Kaaka Kaaka.

Impressed to no ends with Kamal's performance. He looks as old as he is in a few scenes. Apart from that he is dashing and can give any present day hero, a run for their money. Not sure if today's Surya or Vikram can be as smart as Kamal, at his age.

Kamalinee Mukherjee - Does a meteoric role and makes me want to say...."Ivvalavu naaL nee enga irundha?".

Jyothika - Does what is expected of her.

Villain stands out yet again in Gautam Menon's movie. Certainly deserves credit. Title song is awesome.

VV is not flawless. It has scenes that will constantly remind Kaaka Kaaka. Picturisation is not perfect. In fact the first 60 seconds of "Paartha Mudhal Naale" is pathetic. Movie loses its way in the middle. Its too gory at places.

Yet it stands out for the gripping climax, Kamal's performance and the maturity in Raghavan's character. Time has the ugly tendency to make great creations appear mediocre. May be that's what made Gautam Menon to come with yet another cop movie and realise what he missed out in Kaaka Kaaka.

Watch it. And don't forget to forget Kaaka Kaaka before you enter the movie hall.

Balaji, u forgot to add one more point in ur review. Kamal hasnt lied his dirty hands in the script. Not a single smooch , that too with TWO heroines was definetly stumping. Hats off to Gautham who didnt alter the script for Heros.

Nevertheless, i guess kamal would make up for this in Dhasvatharam. I bet there will be 10 heroines and its needless to kamal would have the FUN ;-)

Shanky,
Kamal has not smooched on screen, since Virumandi.

In the charisma that Kamal exuded, i never thought abt that.

@balaji,

its actually more than physically, the way kamal walks, and carries himself is like in vasool raja, he was disappoinment :(

only few guys in the industry fit into this police uniform perfectly & naturally.Rest of them i guess the police uniform needs to be fitted to tuck them in...

Kamal always looked exceptionally good in uniform,its been a long wait for this movie,hope Gautham would not have disappointed.

No mention of BGM in the movie, Waiting a chance to watch it here...
