Varisu Movie Review: A Vijay - Rashmika Pakka commercial movieModified On: 12 January 2023 | Reviewed By: Team Moviekoop
Story-line: Vijay, the prodigal son of a business tycoon agrees to take over the reins of the business, but whether he is able to prove himself to be a worthy successor or not is the story.
Review: The story revolves mainly around Rajendran (Sarath Kumar), a business tycoon who pits his own sons against each other to ensure that he has the right successor. While the first and second sons, Jai (Srikanth) and Ajay (Shaam), have an eye on the chairman's chair and blindly act out their father's whims and fancies, the third son, Vijay (Vijay) has a difference of opinion with his methods and choses to stay away. And just when Rajendran learns that he is counting his days, he gets to see his sons for who they really are, and ends up making Vijay as his successor, which results in the other two going on a warpath and worse, joining with his bitter rival Jayaprakash (Prakash Raj). whether Vijay prove himself to be a worthy varisu and also reunite his now-broken family or not?
Varisu initially begin in a rather shaky manner, with scenes that seem somewhat alien to its milieu and rather cold. Even the mother sentiment doesn't really seem forceful enough. What keeps us interested in these moments are the parallels that we read into them based on the reported real-life tiff between the film's star and his parents.
There are moments that are rather flat, like the fallout scene between Vijay and Rajendran, that appears early in the film. Even the intermission point isn't exactly a rousing one.
However, film switches gear in the second half, and Vamshi scores in sixes and fours with the mass moments that have both comedy and heroism in equal measure. He also punctures the sentimental moments with comedy and ensures that things don't get too melodramatic. At the same time, he also doesn't hold back when he wants to reach for his audience's tear ducts. This is a film that is quite self-aware. Family and relationships are main factors that drive the plot.
There are slip-ups in the form of a rather slight romantic track (Rashmica Mandanna being the heartthrob) , and less-than-formidable villains. That even an actor of Prakash Raj's stature cannot turn the antagonist into a formidable threat to the protagonist shows how weak the characterisation is. The pacing of the film is uneven and Vamshi even includes unnecessary songs and one too many fights that turn the film into an overlong affair.
But he makes up for all of it through his leading star. Vijay is in terrific form, cracking one-liners that have us break out into a smile, exchanging comic counters with Yogi Babu (who is quite funny, after a long time), making self-referential punches and showing earnestness to make us buy the sentimental moments.
