Thala Ajith and Siruthai Siva have collaborated for the fourth time in Viswasam. For the past six years they both are working together.
Viswasam is a village ruffian, who settles disputes in his native, takes on a big shot when he tries to sort out the rough patch in his marriage after several years.
Ajith shines totally as Thooku Durai and his ‘alaparai’ is enjoyable throughout. The story takes place in two different places, Koduvilarpatti and Mumbai, and Ajith shows a good amount of variation with his acting. His Madurai dialect adds to the nativity and the authenticity. Ajith is seen at his casual best in the light hearted scenes. Whenever the screenplay faces a dip, Ajith comes as a saviour. Not to forget, Thala Ajith’s single take dance in the last bit of ‘Adchi Thooku’. The audience will definitely enjoy that portion.
Nayanthara looks dazzling on screen and she has a meaty role to perform who travels throughout. Baby Anikha emotes beautifully and her chemistry with Ajith works big time. The game play between Ajith and Anikha is an interesting watch. The entire set of comedians does a good job with their limited screentime.
Music director D. Imman’s awesome background music elevated the intensity of the scene to a different level and his name in the crew is a valuable addition.
Director Siva is very clear with his intentions who puts forth an entertaining rural action drama filled with family emotions and other elements. He understands the pulse of the fans and the family audience and delivers a entertaining product. It wouldn’t be wrong if we label Viswasam as the best film, out of the four films from Ajith – Siva combination.
On the whole Viswasam is a package of commercial elements to satisfy the family audience. Sure it will be nice Pongal treat for the audience.
