Now for all of you who are Kamal hassan fans, am sure you've seen this movie a zillion times and have discussed it in detail, but if there are those select few who've not seen this movie yet, then i suggest you go watch it..

Even though i dont think its anything great, its worth a watch and Gautham and Kamal deserve a big PAT on their backs for this lively lovely effort of a movie that stands aside from the other Masala tamil movies we see oh,so often..

Am not going to reveal the story but shall share what i thought were amazing in this movie... Vettaiyadu Vilaiyadu was a movie that faced a lot of problems to a point where people(incl me) started speculating if it will come out at all or get shelved like some of the other Kamal ventures... Phew, what a relief it was to see the movie had been released and was doing beyond well all over the world..

I saw this movie about 2weeks after it was released... Tried and tried to get tickets,but alas was only disappointed and so as last resort tried for tickets at Abhirami and what do you know, got them... So,went to watch this movie on a sunny afternoon and enjoyed it a lot..

This movie just keeps the audience going with nothing but KAMAL(who plays the character of Raghavan) in full form, it actually doesnt need anybody else, no heroine no side kicks.. The story is so strong that you are on the edge of your seat till about the interval,but after that the fizz kind of fizzles out because it becomes obvious to us viewers who the killers are and so we just wait for the movie to end..

The way Gautham has directed this movie is to be talked about, the way he has thought down to the way Raghavan interacts with Anderson at NYPD and to the whole emotional sequences while handling the families of the victims,etc..

All in all, its a good movie, but there are times when i had a deja vu of Kakka Kakka, maybe its cos both movies have hero;s who are cops, their loved ones die, similar chase,,... i dont know.. but as long you are open minded and just walk into the theater or begin to watch this movie as a whole new movie, you are satisfied..

There are certain scenes that leave us baffled and wondering "how stupid can a cop get, breaking and entering into a suspects house without backup?".. c'mon,we've all seen enough Tv serials to know how NYPD and cops in general operate...

Jyothika - yet another good performance, even though her role isalmost like a side kick, maybe Gautham's lucky charm is Jyo.. whoknows... :)

- as always, an actor who is pretty sharp and does a good job,.. he too had a very short role in this movie..

Daniel Balaji has yet again done a good job, the way they plot and plan all the murders and at the end the way they are eaten up with passion and thirst for vengence is beautifully portrayed..

The Music is awesome, absolutely catchy tunes and some soothing soulful songs keep the flow of the movie going.. The picturisation, cinematography needs no comments for it is better less said as the actions and scenes speak louder than my words..

All in all, its a good movie... a little gruesome, a little loud but good action thriller..

Watch how the hunter hunts and the killers get chased , thrashed and slaughtered ... ;)

Watch it once atleast...
