User Review( vote)
Overall, Ajith fans will definitely enjoy Viswasam for it’s thala mass moments, and family pleasing scenes. The screenplay is shallow and predictable and that puts the movie down.
For the fourth time Ajith and Siva has joined hands for Viswasam.
Did the movie stand up to the hype? Read the review to know more.
For one Viswasam resembles Veeram a lot. Is it the backdrop or Ajith’s looks or the director’s writing? We don’t know.
The story goes like this.
Ajith plays Thooku Durai who is strong, bold and is uneducated. He is shown as a don who does good stuff to people.
Nayanthara plays the lady lead Niranjana, who is a doctor. They both fall in love with each other and get married.
When they have a daughter, Niranjana realizes it is not safe for their daughter to be together with Thooku Durai due to his behaviour and background.
So she leaves him and they are separated for ten years.
Thooku Durai, along with his friends set out to meet his daughter.
We have a villain in picture who tries to murder their daughter. And so they reunite.
How Thooku Durai saves his family from the villain forms the rest of the story.
Ajith shines throughout the movie and shows ample variations in his emotions.
He looks charming and serious as and when needed.
Nayanthara on the other hand perfectly accomplishes her role. Her screen presence adds oomph factor to the movie.
We have a set of comedians but the purpose is not served. Most of the attempts in comedy scenes do not evoke laughter at all.
Another major minus is the underwritten villain role. Neither his characterisation nor the reason for vengeance are strong enough to lift the screenplay.
Though the first half is focused on mass moments and family entertainment factors the second half gets draggy.
Songs don’t do justice to the mood of the movie and they don’t help with increasing the tempo either.
But the background score makes up for it.
We have plenty of relationship related emotions, especially that of father daughter, to please family audience.
Overall, Ajith fans will definitely enjoy Viswasam for it’s thala mass moments, and family pleasing scenes.
The screenplay is shallow and predictable and that puts the movie down.
