Vaaranam Ayiram

Filed under: movie — Tags: , , — yaadayaada @ 5:07 am

Went to see Vaaranam Ayiram with low expectation after reading bbthots and boo’s reviews. That helped. Surya is awesome! His acting is wonderful! You don’t even think for a minute that the dad(rather daddy) role and the son role are played by the same person. The songs are great! Simran has done a good job.

But as a director, I have to say Gautham Menon has failed! The story didn’t convey the father/son bond that he wanted to convey very well. I didn’t mind the english dialogues in Vettaiyadu Vilayadu. But in this movie, it seemed so out of place! They weren’t natural. The expectations from Gautham Menon is great! He didn’t meet it in this movie! After seeing this movie, one thing for sure, no one would have the urge to call their dad, daddy!

Inspite of the pitfalls, it is a decent movie overall! Must see if you are a Surya fan! As for Gautham Menon, hope Chennaiyil Mazhaikaalam satisfies our expectations!



  1. Oru padam vandhu innum one week ahalai, adhukulla adutha pada expectation aa???
    To be honest, the movie is growing on me. Remembering few scenes and feeling good about it. Btw, was nt that hospital scene where Megnas dad cries in the corridor just heart breaking? I felt for the old man more than Surya. If only there were more such superb scenes, it would ve worked.

  5. Me too! Liked the movie in parts but the film as a whole didn’t impress me much. I had done a post on it too.
