“No harm done in watching this light-hearted entertainer.”
Vaalu is definitely not the comeback movie which STR fans would have waited for almost three years. It's a decade old story -Sharp (Simbu) meets Priya (Hansika) , falls in love and then he comes to know that her parents have already fixed her for Anbu (Aditya). Priya tells Sharp that she has two years before marriage so our hero throws a challenge that he will win her heart in just ten days.
The plot tells us that the film has to be a romantic action entertainer with some cute chemistry between the lead pair. But their combination is like water and oil, there is absolutely no chemistry between the duo. At least, Simbu tries his level best to take the movie forward with his energy level but Hansika looks dull and disinterested in the movie, her bloated face and heavy make-up with bad lip-sync is definitely terrible.
The film's only solace is Santhanam who entertains us with his comic one liners and his spontaneous combination with Simbu.
Vaalu was in cans for almost three years and hence the production value looks dull but the film's cinematographer has done complete justice with grand visuals.
Music by Thaman is definitely a huge strength for the movie. All the songs are super energetic, especially the Thaaru Maaru and You are My Darling number are already chartbusters.
If there is anyone to blame, then it must be debutante director Vijay Chander as he has spoiled show with a decade year old story with sluggish and predictable screenplay.
