It has been raining dubbing films in Tollywood from quite some time now. This week its the turn of Ajith’s super hit Tamil film Veeram. Tilted Veerudokkade, this film has Tamanna Bhatia as the female lead, and Shiva is the director. Let’s see what this village entertainer has in store for us.
Veerendra(Ajith) is a simple and hard working business man in a village called Veeravaram. He has four brothers whom he is fond of very much. Veerendra does not marry as he feels that if a girl enters his family, there would be problems between his brothers.
On the other hand, all his four brothers are in love, and want to get married soon. Knowing that in order for them to get married, they will have to convince Veerendra to marry first. All of them get together, and make a plan and contact Gautami(Tamanna) to some how woo their brother. Gautami starts wooing Veerendra, and in the process falls in love with him.
When things seem to be going fine, Gautami’s family is targeted by Nagaraju(Atul Kulkarni). Who is this Nagaraju? What relation does he have with Gautami’s family ? How does Veerendra save everyone from Nagaraju ?. For answers to all these questions, you need to watch this film on big screen.
Major and the only highlight of the film is Ajith. He is a one man army, and carries the whole film on his shoulders. Ajith looks stylish in his village attire and is particularly good in the action episodes.
Though Tamanna does not have a meaty role, she looks beautiful and impresses most of the times. Santhanam’s comedy in the first half is very good and lightens the film.
The actors who acted as Ajith’s brothers are decent. As usual, Nasser does his best in an important character. Tambi Ramaaiyya’s comedy role, and the interval block is pretty good.
First half of the films moves on a slow pace, as a number of scenes have been dragged unnecessarily. Story of the film is quite old, and has been dealt with in many movies.
Fifteen or twenty minutes into the film, the movie becomes predictable and has nothing new in it. Music of the film is the biggest minus, and the climax is also stretched and makes it irritating for the audience.
Camera work by Vetri is quite good in the film. Production values are top notch and all the songs have been shot lavishly. As said above, Devi Sri Prasad’s music is a big let down as none of the songs make an impression.
But its Devi’s background score, which takes all the brownie points. The music scored for elevating Ajith character in the fights, and climax is extraordinary. Editing is quite disappointing as a number of scenes could have been chopped off in the first half.
Director Shiva has used many points from his previous Telugu films like Shouryam, Shankham and Daruvu. He managed to add decent Tamil flavour to this film, but lost out on the plot making it quite routine.
On the whole, Veerudokkade is an out and out Ajith film. His dialogues, stunts and star power will be liked his fans immensely. For all those who like the typical and high octane commercial pot boilers, you can give this film a shot.
