Vijay’s Bairavaa Movie review
The film revolves the story around a daring debt collector who ends up fighting a hard-core educational field criminal. The film is fully loaded with lots of mass elements, Punch Dialogues and Power packed performance of Vijay.
After experienced some acting in his previous movies, Now Vijay comes up with full of mass action based movie for his hardcore fans. Hope the film satisfies all the Vijay fans.
Bairavaa is an action entertainer that talks about a daring debt collector who ends up fighting a hard-core educational field criminal. It is expected to be an unapologetic mass movie that can only be enjoyed and not analysed. So does Bairavaa satisfy the masses? Glance down to know!
After experimenting a little with his performances in his recent outings, Vijay has come out with an out and out commercial action movie, just to treat his hardcore fan base for this Pongal. Yet another energetic performance from Vijay! .If there is one thing that makes you watch the film without frowning till the very end, that would be Vijay’s screen presence.
The film travels 20 minutes without Vijay during the flashback portion, a rarity in his films. A gutsy move by the team! Though the flashback is predictable and passable, it helps to create tension and also gives good build up to the villain. The film takes time to settle down, but once it gets going you get a partially satisfactory ride till the mid-point. Pre-climax fight happens to be one of the high points of the film. Post mid way mark, the film resorts to an over beaten screenplay pattern. A couple of impressive scenes here and there keep you alert.
Keerthy Suresh, as Vijay’s love interest, plays a good natured and gleeful girl next door. It is nice to see the actress establishing a style for herself in such a short span. She has a peculiar set of expressions which works quite well for the character. She has tried her hands on the ‘Nellai’ dialect but it isn’t consistent. Jagapathi Babu, Daniel Balaji and Thambi Ramaiah bring their experience on to the table.
Few scenes looked over dramatized and could have been toned down. Sukumar has shown Vijay in dynamic angles and it has elevated his mass aspects adequately. The action scenes in particular were well choreographed, thanks to Anl Arasu. Few CGI and set works looked tacky. There were lip sync issues too especially during the early stages of the film. Vijay’s toupee, an already exposed flaw spoilt the looks of naturally charming Vijay.
‘Varlaam vaa’ bgm works so well with the visuals but other RR’s hardly make an impact. A couple of BGM looks to be heavily inspired from Hollywood OST’s. Song placement of ‘papa papa’ looks force fitted.
Rating: 3.0 out of 5:
Bairava is a decent film and one time watchable. It should definitely impress the Vijay fans. For the general audience, it is one time watchable. Hope it would be a mass entertainer of the year.
Expected box office collection: 150 Crores*
Many of the theaters were released Bhairava and movie get a good response from the audience. So, Hope the film box office will be touch 150 Crores*. In this Pongal, only 2 films named Bhairava and Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga. Bairavaa definitely beats Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga. Up to Jan 26th, 2017, the film collection will be raised. Let us see in upcoming days.
