An aspiring actor who goes by the name Charan (Vijay Sethupathi) ends up coming across Kamalini (Raashi Khanna), the entitled daughter of a prosperous businessman (Ravi Kishan) at a bar. Both of them develop an excellent rapport and ultimately become good friends. While things go smoothly between this adorable duo, Charan's violent side gets triggered due to certain events. Turns out, Charan was initially Vijay Sethupathi who changed his name to start a new chapter in his life. Many questions arise at this point. Why did Charan have to take a huge step like this? What was Vijay Sethupathi like? Why does his past include another woman (Nivetha Pethuraj) named Rani and a notorious politician (Ashutosh Rana)? Watch the movie to learn more.
Vijay Sethupathi is a movie focussed on one person entirely and that is the lead actor Vijay Sethupathi himself. Character building and development were only done to the lead character. This clouded the attention towards the second lead, Kamalini, who did her part perfectly, but more justice could've been done to her character. This film is a cliche film with a very predictable plot. Keeping the mass BGM entries and thrilling action scenes aside, this film reminds me of the quote- "all bark and no bite". 'Vijay Sethupathi' delivers just what the fans require, i.e, catchy soundtrack, clinging action sequences, and dialogues that get imprinted among the audience for a long time. Since the filmmakers focussed mainly on only these three aspects, they failed to work on the quality and the essence of the storyline. The comedy factor of this film is satisfactory, which is expected of all mass entertainer action films.
Coming to the technical aspects, the cinematographer did a great job as the film scenes look crisp and high quality. Vijay Chandar did a spectacular job with the direction and the music of this film is certainly very roaring and engaging.
'Vijay Sethupathi' is a decent film for movie lovers who adore action-packed films with twists.
