A rich man's (Nasser) daughter (Ramya Krishnan) falling in love and marrying a commoner (Prabhu) creates a rift between them and he banishes his daughter and forbids her or her kin from setting foot in his house anymore. As years pass, he repents his mistake and wants to reconcile but his daughter makes it clear that she is in no mood to forgive him. The old man asks his grandson (son's child) to somehow clear things up with his aunt and mend the broken relationship. How does the grandson (STR) go about this task? Will he be able to reunite the broken relationship? Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven has the answers...
Director Sundar C., has taken the superhit Telugu movie - Attarintiki Daredi and modified the screenplay a bit to suit Tamil audiences and remade it in Tamil. This movie has quite a large cast including STR, Megha Akash, Catherine Teresa, Ramya Krishnan, Nasser, Radha Ravi, Prabhu, Suman, Mahat Raghavendra, Yogi Babu, Robo Shankar, Motta Rajendran, VTV Ganesh, Singamuthu, many Sundar C regulars and then some more... One of the problems with having a huge star cast is that not everybody gets enough screen space.
One can truly state that the STR of old is back (albeit with a hefty paunch). His trademark high-energy dance moves, massy punch dialogues, quirky finger movements; all of them are back with a bang! His look for this movie has been stylised well and if he had worked better on his physique, it would have matched amazingly. STR's acting prowess is well known and he has aced his emotions and dialogue delivery and packs a punch in the lengthy single-shot sequences in the first half as well as in the climax. Megha Akash is turning out to be revelation. She is absolutely perfect for her role and is one of the movie's biggest plus points. Catherine Tresa doesn't have much to do and just flits in and out of the movie at times.
Of the huge star cast, only Ramya Krishnan, Robo Shankar and Yogi Babu score in parts. The rest of the cast do not create much of an impact. Hiphop Tamizha's score for the 'Red Cardu', 'Modern Muniyamma' and 'Vanga Machan Vanga' songs are very good and is sure to have the audiences on their feet. The placement of songs however, seems to create a lag in an already dragging screenplay. The action sequences and punch dialogues elevate STR's mass quotient in the movie to an altogether different level.
The first half is rather slow and sure takes its own sweet time to get going but the second half is far crisper and moves forward rapidly. Veteran stars like Prabhu, Radha Ravi, Nasser and Suman could have been better utlised. Sundar C's staple dose of comedy is missing and the feeble attempts by the support cast falls flat, except for Yogi Babu who induces a few smiles. In a rare turn-of-events, a few of the director's favourite regulars Manobala & Kovai Sarala, are missing from VRV.
