Veera Sivaji review:Tedious watch


Ganesh Vinayak

Star Cast

Vikram Prabhu, Shamili, John Vijay, Yogi Babu

Sitting in the cinema watching Veera Sivaji, you realise that this is a rare breed of film that gets almost nothing right.

Embarrassingly amateurish, the blame for this misadventure rests squarely with director Ganesh Vinayak who seem to have blatant disregard for the audience’s intelligence nor could he provide entertainment.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story review

Sivaji alias Siva (Vikram Prabhu) is a cab driver in Puducherry who is an orphan. For him his family is the school going kid Yazhini and her mom whom he dotes on. Siva sees Anjali (Shamili) on the road and it is love at first sight, duets and some silly pranks. Now Yazhini is sick and Siva is told by doctors that she has to get an immediate operation done to remove her brain tumor.

Siva is running around for 25 Lakhs for operation when he bumps into two silly conmen Suresh (Robo Shankar) and Ramesh (Yogi Babu) (who behave like the guys in 5-Star ad) . They come to his rescue and Siva is introduced to two criminals (John Vijay and (Rajendran) who deal with counterfeit notes. What follows is Siva gets cheated, meets with an accident, has memory loss, final confrontation happens inside Binny mills, he gets one blow on his head and his memory is back and finally he gives a piece of advice to all and the movie ends!

Once again Vikram Prabhu is earnest with his performance but fail to rise above the severely flawed script. Dressed in badly-fitted gaudy costumes and shoddy make up, Shamili has precious little to do, is as stiff as a wax statue with barely any emotion. The rest of the cast — Rajendran, John Vijay, Robo Shankar, Yogi Babu and others over-act and try hard to come up with some tasteless, stale jokes.

Overall, Veera Sivaji is not as powerful as the title! Go in with no expectations at all and you’ll still come out disappointed.
