The Telugu version of “VIP” has been renamed as “Raghuvaran BTech”. Although, the first half of the movie does manage to capture your interest, it does fall apart in the second half.
The story revolves around the protagonist Raghuvaran who, like a lot of engineers, is unemployed yet highly talented. When he does find an opportunity to prove himself, he is brought down by some big shots. Raghuvaran fights back and tries to achieve his goal.
Dhanush does a great job as Raghuvaran. Both the comedy and action sequences are brilliantly carried out by him. He does complete justice to his character and is the reason why this movie is worth watching. Amala Paul is a natural actress who plays her part effortlessly.
The role of Dhanush’s father is played by seasoned actor Samuthirakani and Saranya plays the mother. Vivek is also good in the supporting role which he plays.
The director of the movie Velraj has kept the portrayal of the story quite simple and has relied heavily on Dhanush’s performance. The first half has some fun and interesting moments. However the second half fails on the directorial front. The cinematography deserves to be applauded while the editing could have been better.
The music is great but the songs are better in the Tamil version of the movie.
The storyline isn’t anything different from what we have already seen. It depicts the typical zero to hero story. The director has tried to make it an entertainer but has failed when it comes to certain elements.
All in all it is a typical entertainer which we have all come to expect from Dhanush.
