With Vijay’s ‘Velayudham’ gearing up for a release shortly (August), we bring to you a gist of the story and who plays what in this action-packed thriller.
Ilayathalapathy Vijay, who plays Vetrivel in this movie, lives with his mum and a younger sister, Kaveri, played by Saranya Mohan. He is truly in love with Hansika, who plays a village damsel for the first time in Tamil cinema through this movie, and returns his love more than anything else. She has also tried her hands at some comedy through this film and is protective about Vijay in the film, sources say.
For his sister’s wedding he wants to withdraw the money he has invested in a chit-fund company and comes to Chennai for that, where he meets a TV news journalist, Deepa, played by Genelia D’ Souza.
After witnessing a mysterious accident where goons die, Genelia brings in a fictional character to light with the name ‘Velayudham’ claiming he killed the goons. Incidentally, Vijay escapes a bomb blast with no effort, by luck, and people begin to refer to him as the superhero, ‘Velayudham’!
Genelia later meets Vijay and convinces our matinee idol to don the role of this superhero, to which he agrees as he realizes he and many others are cheated by the chit fund company…
So the rest of the plot follows of how Vijay under the mask of a superhero, Velayudham, avenges his loss, fights against corruption in the city and baddies.
So how many of you are game for ‘Velayudham’?
