VTV - Review

Olagathula evlovo padam irunthum, nee yen da intha padatha choose panna?

If you are asking the above question to me, sathyama the answer is “enna theriyala saar/ madam”

I guess its never too late to write a movie review, no matter how old the movie is. Now, this movie was a super hit, and there was a time when I liked this movie a lot (I had love failure then.. :P) and there are still so many ppl who like this movie a lot, so take it easy.   I have realised a lot of things of about this movie, but it took someone of spl calibre and potential (Thanks Vandhana .. J ) to find out some extra flaws in this movie.

The name of the movie is Vinaithaandi varuvaaya. It was a super duper hit and was remade in many languages, but I am not here to talk about the good stuff in this movie, after all who wants to listen to good stuff.. isnt it? So here we are.

The literal meaning of vinaithaandi varuvaaya is as follows:
Vinai – the actor .. for more details .. click here
Thaandi – cross
Varu- come
Vaaya – is it mouth?

Not really sure as to why the director chose such a name for the movie.

The gist of the movie is this. There is one crazy girl called jessie and one mental fellow called karthik, how karthik falls in love with jessie and how she kaitiutufies (couldn’t find an appropriate english word for this one) him is the story.

So  hero of the movie is karthik.  U no .. I think that karthik is the safest movie hero name.  If you want ur movie to be a hit, just name the hero karthik and make sure that the heroin says the heros name in every other dialogue eg “enna karthik”, “vaa karthik”, “po karthik” etc.

Actually, this movie should have been named jessie cuz every other character with on screen time of more than 2 mins says jessie at least 5 times.  I think the karthik realised this and that’s why he names his movie as jessie, too bad director of VTV didn’t realise that.

Also, this movie features a lot of gem of a dialogues such as,
“your daughter is sitting here like car parking and you need kkkolification?”

Towards the end, after the heroin dumps the hero,  she will say lines (lies?) like,”enna manichidu, karthik (see? karthik again), itha naa yen panna nu ennaku theriyale karthik, intha vali ennaku pudichiriku” etc.  you know how people complain about there being no message in the movie?  This is the best message that the movie can offer, about how girls are.   They will disturb you when u r damn busy, suddenly ask u to come to the other end of the city for them, make u pay countless bills (all on your meager salary mind u) and then ultimately leave you for America maapilai (in this case a UK maapilai).  This reminds me of the best quote ever in tamil cinema history, “intha ponnungalae ipdi thaan”

Also, just to establish the fact that the heroin is a mallu girl (though she is born and brought up in Chennai is a different story), she will suddenly blabber something in Malayalam in the middle of normal conversation. I don’t understand Malayalam, for all I know she could be saying “please bring tea”, “urgently bathroom coming” ,“movie is slightly mokkai” etc. Yow director, engalakku first scene la yae antha ponnu mallu’nu therinju pochu, nee atha every 5 mins solla theva elle.

There are 100s of other flaws in the movie, but I guess this is enough for now.
