AR Murugadoss and Fox International has given us “Engeyum Eppothum” which garnered critical and commercial acclaim. Now the combo is back with Vatthikuchi which is directed by Kinslin who was a former associate of AR Murugadoss.
Vatthikuchi is a story about a share auto driver and his struggle when he is hovered by unusual circumstances. Shakthi (Dileban) an honest driver lives his life peacefully but his honest and helping tendency leads him to be a enemy to three different gangs. The rest of the story tells us how Dileban wins all the three gangs with brawn and brain.
Dileban is good in stunt performance but he have to improve his expressions and dialogue delivery. Anjali plays the bubbly character and as usual she did the role with an ease. Among the number of actors only Sampath and Jegan did a good job. Other actors like Jayprakash,Ravimariya ,Vatsan did a okay performance.
Vatthikuchi’s biggest strength is Kinslin’s screenplay, RB Gurudev’s cinematography and Rajasekar’s stunt choreography. Dileban’s point of narration and his mind voice is okay at start but after a point of time it is repetitive. Ghibran’s background score is good and so as the songs, especially the Vatthikuchi theme adds the sparkling feel to the stunt scenes.
So many scenes in the first half is promising like the one where Dileban takes on Sampath and also the love portions between Dileban and Anjali. The way Jegan gang capture Dileban is dashing.
Though the film looks interesting some scenes are silly like the one where Dileban takes rest and eat food before the climax. The film also has many logical loopholes. Anjali’s comic portion in first half falls flat.
Overall the film is a decent attempt and it is a huge platform for Dileban as an action hero.
Verdict : Vatthikuch has its sparkling moments
