Tamil hero Vishal, has turned producer with his latest film Dheerudhu. This film marks the début of Aishwarya Arjun, daughter of action star Arjun. Directed by Bhupathi Pandian, this dubbed film has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.
Sambar Siva(Vishal) is a chef who owns a catering group. One fine day, he accepts to organize a wedding of the village’s notorious criminal. When things seem to be going fine, a fight breaks out among Siva’s team and the bad guys.
Siva’s group manages to fight them, but runs away from the village fearing the future consequences. They settle down in Vijayawada and start searching for their livelihood.
One fine day, Shiva meets Aishwarya (Aishwarya Arjun) and falls in love with her. This is also the time, when two rival groups start fighting for the power in the city. A small fight with one of the gangs, lands Siva into a huge trouble.
Who are that group ? Do they have anything to do with Siva’s past ? How will Siva go against them?. For answers to all these questions, you need to watch this film on the big screen.
Vishal does a decent job, and is especially good in the action episodes. Aishwary Arjun makes a decent effort. Though she did not have much scenes to perform, she has made the most of her screen time.
Santanam’s comedy is good in his usual role. Action episodes have been conceived and shot well. It is during the second half, that the film picks up pace, and makes it a little interesting.
Pace of the film in the first half is quite slow. Scenes have been dragged to the core, and the placement of the songs do not help matters much.
The makers have concentrated much on the action sequences, leaving the core of the film. Tamil nativity might not be liked by the people here.
Camera work is quite good in the film. The way action scenes have been covered is decent. Editing in the first half is pretty bad as many scenes could have been chopped off to make the film crisp.
Music by SS Thaman is just below average. Not even a single song is good, and more over hinder the flow of the film. But it is Thaman’s background score which elevates the film to a decent level.
On the whole, Vishal’s venture as a producer is not up to the mark. A slow and tedious first half, and some routine and boring moments spoil the fun. Give this film a shot, if you only like some hardcore desi action from Vishal.
