Varisu Movie Review and Rating: Vijay and Rashmika Mandanna, action and family drama Varisu is out in cinemas today. Let’s take a look at Varisu’s story.
Story: Rajendran (Sharath Kumar) is a business magnate. His two sons – Jai (Srikanth) and Ajay (Shaam) take care of his business and one of them hopes to become the heir. The third son Vijay (Vijay) had left home after a disagreement with his father about joining the family business. What happens in the family that forces Vijay to stay behind and why does his father make him the chairman of his group of companies? Though he agrees to take over the reins of the company, but can he prove himself a worthy successor? To get these answers, one has to watch the movie on a silver screen.
· Predictable story
Performance: Vijay is in great shape, exchanging comic counters with Yogi and making self-referential punches. He gives his career the best performance really awarded. He looks super handsome. Rashmika Mandanna fits her role perfectly. Not only does she look stunning, but performance-wise she did a fantastic job. Seasoned actor, Prakash Raj brings a lot of depth to the film with his great supporting act. Jayasudha is fine in her role. The rest of the cast also justifies with their roles.
Technical: Varisu’s story is predictable. The familial moments, especially scenes between Vijay and Jayasudha (playing the mother) work somewhat in an otherwise largely predictable film. The film does manage to do exactly what the trailer promised. Vamsi Padipally manages the balance with the mass moments containing both comedy and heroism in equal measure. Varisu is awake enough to recognize that relatives can be poisonous. Karthik Palani’s cinematography is superb, Thaman’ BGM also emphasized. The editing is fine. The production values of superb.
Analysis: Varisu is a family drama against the background of a brutal business world. In the work of director Vamsi Paidipally, he manages to weave a reasonably captivating film about misunderstood sons and fathers, jealous rivals, warring brothers, worried mother, romance, spicy songs and intense heroic moments. And Thalapathy Vijay elevates ordinary moments into entertaining episodes.
