Veppam (2011) Review Aggregator

Submitted by on July 30, 2011 – 12:29 amNo Comment |

Veppam is a 2Tamil action thriller written and directed by newcomer Anjana Ali Khan, starring Nani, Karthik Kumar, Bindu Madhavi and Nithya Menen. The film, jointly produced by Gautham Menon’s Photon Kathaas and R. S. Infotainment, was released this Friday. Here are the critic opinions on the film.

Rediff says the film could have been enjoyable: “The film is supposed to be a realistic take on the rougher sections of the city, but the story never really draw you in and looks like an outsider’s view of the city’s underbelly. A tauter screenplay, more logic in the sequences and realistic dialogues would have made Veppam an eminently enjoyable film.

Nowrunning sounds totally unimpressed: “Veppam is a potboiler of Kollywood clichés. It has a highly implausible plot, incongruous music numbers, tested and accepted tough guy personalities and choreographed fight sequences. It is indeed a celebration of the eternal mediocrity that Kollywood has successfully upheld.”

Oneindia has a different story to tell: ‘Veppam is made on the realistic lines and except some parts, the movie  is thoroughly engaging. The director’s groundwork before prior to the start of the film can be seen in every frame, as she has wonderfully captured Chennai’s underbelly. Kudos to the director for getting this right. It is watchable once!”
