Velan review: A typical rural family action entertainer

Director

Kavin

Star Cast

Mugen Rao, Prabhu, Thambi Ramaiah, Soori

Velan is not a groundbreaking attempt in Tamil cinema but it's not a film that is difficult to sit through.

Debutant director Kavin's Velan is a typical rural family entertainer that talks about the relationship between a doting dad and his happy-go-lucky son with a funny subplot about the latter's love interest!

Velan (Mugen Rao) is a happy-go-lucky son of the rich and influential industrialist (Prabhu). While Velan's dad thought that his son is a brilliant student, the public exam results come as a shocker to him. Our hero fails in the exam and his dad stops talking to him.

Now, Velan studies hard and gets the pass mark but is unable to convince his dad. However, when Velan's dad comes to know about his son's love interest through the girl's dad (Thambi Ramiah), he agrees to the marriage. But here is the twist, Velan's girlfriend is not Thambi Ramaiah's daughter! How Velan is going to sort out this confusion and win back both his dad and ladylove forms the crux of the story...

Mugen looks energetic, got good comic timing, and pulls off the romantic scenes well. But he should work on the emotionally demanding scenes! Veteran Prabhu is super impressive and Thambi Ramaiah is okay. The baddie Hareesh Peradi is a typical villain and evokes unintentional laughter in the climax. Soori who comes in the second half evokes good laughter and plays a vital role.

Velan is not a groundbreaking attempt in Tamil cinema but it's not a film that is difficult to sit through. It's a typical rural entertainer with a predictable screenplay but the comedy and emotions work!

Technically, Gopi Sundar's songs are good and the visuals are grand for a rural film. The dialogues of Kavin also work in favor of the film.

To conclude, Velan is a typical rural family action entertainer.
