Valiyavan Movie Review – A Romantic Entertainer with Action Sprinkled In

Valiyavan Tamil Movie Review and Rating

Director Saravanan made 'Engeyum Eppothum' which was a movie that made people notice him. However, with 'Valiyavan' he fails to keep the audience engaged because the film is long, has many familiar scenes and is not so convincing.

Quick Glance

What's great?

  • • Jai's in a character that fits him

  • • Andrea's role

  • • Some melodious numbers by Imman

  • • Fight Sequences

  • • Cinematography and impressive camera angles

What's not?
  • • Not so convincing storyline

  • • Too long and focuses on the story towards the end

Jai is madly in love with Andrea and she is ready to accept him only if he manages to beat the National champion boxer.

The Cast

Jai has really worked hard for the toned, six pack physique and it's a good effort. He acts the familiar innocent role similar to 'Raja Rani' and he's well versed with it by now. Andrea looks fresh and acts decent while the supporting cast including Bala Saravanan is strong with his comical one liners. It's just that if Tamil comedians can reduce their love advices, it would be much better.

The Team

Director Saravanan did a good job with his earlier two films and in 'Valiyavan' he delivers a romantic film with very minor action. However, the film doesn't engage much and is a mix of slow dragging scenes. The reason why he wishes to beat the boxer is not convincingly told and in the second half, the movie looks more like 'Maan Karate 2'.

Bottom line – A lot of repetitive love scenes and bad song placements makes this a below average flick.

Certified Fresh – No!

Stars – 2.25/5
