Veyyil


I have never come across such a raw movie. Rawness in terms of gore and violence. The movie is hard hitting just like the sun in summer. The movie is about the trials and tribulations of the protagonist. A very melodramatic movie with a gamut of emotions interweaved in a classy way. Very rarely are movies made on people whose life ends up in complete failure no matter whatever the path they choose to tread. This is one such movie. The hero runs away from his family at an young age, later finds an employment in a theatre. Falls in love but unfortunately are separated and the girl commits suicide in front of his eyes. The place where he works is shut down and he is back to square one. Tragedy seems to follow him whereever he goes so he goes back to his villiage after 20 years and lives as an unwelcomed guest at his house. Excepting his brother who cares for him. On the contrary his brother manages to head a decent living. Both sides of a coin have been well elicited in the movie. The end isn't all-is-well-tht-ends-well type. Tragedy strikes again!!!

The movie is shot entirely in rural and brings out a typical rural life which im sure the people living in urban wouldn't have witnessed at all. Even the tamil accent is entirely different in the movie and everyone has put an extra load of effort which thoroughly reflects on screen. A touch of reality runs through the movie. The songs in fact,i heard them first while watching the movie and are very impressive. I liked urugudhey and kadhal nerupu the first time i listened to them. The music has been scored by a newcomer who is apparently a nephew of ARR. Sure music runs in their blood and he has proved it. The movie doesn't have an impressive star cast but is definitely worth a watch but not recommended for those who are already going through a dull phase in life.
