Behind the Movie Vachchadu Gelichadu: Super hit run of ‘Rangam’ has made Tamil hero Jiiva, an instant hero in Tollywood. Joining him is heroine Tapsee and director Kannan raising the expectations. Let us see, how far Jiiva has won the game this time?
In the Movie Vachchadu Gelichadu: Jeeva (Jiiva) is a professional boxer and step brother to Ramana (Nanda). They are sons of same mother but different fathers. As Ramana did not like his family, he runs away Mumbai to become a Don. Jeeva falls in love with local architect Anajana (Tapsee). Her father is killed in an encounter in the hands of Ramana.
Anajana comes up with a condition for Jeeva to pull her dad’s murderer Ramana behind the bars in order to win his love. Jeeva gets close to Ramana and explains the entire situation only to know that Ramana is his step brother. How did Jeeva game up with Ramana destroying mafia business and what happened to Ramana forms the course of climax.
Values of the Movie Vachchadu Gelichadu: Core intention of director Kannan was to entertain audience with a perfect blend of Romance and Action. In difference his feeble script and dingy narration tests the patience in many occasions. Muthiah’s cinematography captured the locational beauty in songs while editing by Vijayan surely could have been better. Music by Thaman SS was good in songs and in background it is just mediocre. Production values of Venu Gopal are high.
Performance wise Jiiva is a charmer. He has that cool looks in romance and even in knacky action scenes, he has done a decent job. Tapsee looks glamorous as usual. Performance wise she looks to still dry down. Nanda is one of the best picks in movie. He has wonderful screen presence and is delight to watch in aggression episodes taking on Jiiva. Comedy by Santhanam is just okay. Remaining others, it is hard to remind.
Out of the Movie Vachchadu Gelichadu: For all those audience, who enter theatre with high expectations of ‘Rangam’ will come to realize that it’s not the same show here. Kannan has deliberately killed the pace in movie. He used consistent twists in main story as a weapon to keep the audience engaged but that did not work out.
Kannan has well captured the romance between lead pair as chemistry between Jiiva and Tapsee looked perfect. Even same do apply for action episodes but what matters is there is no cohesion in narration. No doubts, Kannan looked to be a bright technician but he failed to give one more ‘Rangam’ for audience.
Cinejosh Verdict of the Movie Vachchadu Gelichadu: Not a comprehensive & complete Winner.
