Velayudham - A superhero's journey
IndiaGlitz  [Monday, October 10, 2011]
Superhero projects are very rare in Tamil cinema, but things seem to be changing with Ilaya Thalapathi Vijay's 'Velayudham' and Jeeva's project with Mysskin, 'Mugamoodi' in the pipeline.
Ilaya Thalapathi's 'Velayudham' is set for a August release and the action packed thriller is one of those movies, where the common man is forced to take responsibilities and whack the goons up, for the common good.
Ilaya Thalapathi Vijay, who plays Vetrivel in this movie, leads a life of peace in a village, with his widowed mother and a younger sister, Kaveri played by Saranya Mohan. Hansika Motwani plays his morai ponnu in the film and she is smitten by him, overprotective of Vijay and has also tried her hands at some comedy through this film!
Everything is fine and for his sister to enter wedlock, he needs to withdraw the money he has invested in a chit-fund company, for which he comes to Chennai, where he meets a TV journalist, Deepa, played by Genelia D' Souza.
There's a scene where Genelia is harassed by goons, following which, there's an accident where many of city rowdies lose their lives. During which, Genelia creates her own fictional character, a superhero, 'Velayudham' and utilizes her journalist image and claims that it was this superhero that killed the goons!
Incidentally, Vijay escapes a bomb blast by luck, and since he is the only one to escape the blast, people begin to refer to him as the superhero, 'Velayudham'! Genelia later meets Vijay and confides in him, her little secret and requests him to continue to convince people that he is a superhero, to which Vijay refuses downright.
However, due to circumstances, when he and many others are cheated by the chit-fund company, he dons the role of this superhero, Velayudham, and avenges the villains and tries to put an end to corruption in the society.
What follows next as a racy thriller screenplay is the plot of 'Velayudham.'
'Velayudham' has its stunt sequences by Tom Delmar of 'Star Wars' and 'Braveheart' fame, who in an interview with IndiaGlitz expressed that the movie boasts off never-seen-before stunt sequences as the action sequences are complex and referred to Vijay as the one of the most dynamic actors...
Looks like with an ensemble of star cast, brilliant action sequences, a superhero Vijay and the right dose of emotions, 'Velayudham' will take us all on Vijay's superhero journey...
