At this season where ‘Big Tickets’ are swaying with more expectations, there are few low-budged flicks too that have got good contents more than biggies. Of course ‘Vaigai’ falls under this category that has something more convincing story with interesting narration.
Vagai is centered on the love story between a young guy (Bala), son of Village’s great man (Sai Kumar) and a beautiful girl (Visaka), daughter of Village Postmaster (Thalaivasal Vijay). Both of them have fallen in much more adhering relationship with such a bonding that they can’t live away. But misery strikes through Bala’s dad Sai Kumar who fiercely objects their affair and indeed urges his henchmen to kill the girl. Now Bala and Visaka run for their lives, but cannot move further. When Bala interprets that if they catch hold of his ladylove, they’ll kill her. So, both of them consume poison and go separated getting into different trains moving at opposite directions.
What happens next forms the complete second half.
First half moves with some interesting moments with lively ambience of guy falling in love with the girl. Following her vividly and herself taking a look on him by hiding across the walls. Also, the other characterizations have done something more appreciable. But post-intermission, the pace in screenplay falls down slightly and picks the pace in penultimate sequences. Of course, you would be skipping your heart beats with the shocking climax.
Musical score by Sabesh Murali is average like their previous venture with ‘Mayandi Kudumbathar’. Cinematography is yet another embellishment to the screens.
Getting on with performance, Bala makes a perfect debut and is so decent on his take. He never overreacts at any point and so does the female lead Visaka. Sai Kumar as the frustrated person does justice to his role and ‘Thalaivasal’ Vijay is okay.
Finally, ‘Vagai’ may not have evoked interests in you about watching it, but kindly watch it and you’ve something to experience different.
Bottom – Line: A Different film
Verdict: Worth Watching
