Bairavaa Quick Movie Review
Directed by Bharathan and produced by Vijaya Productions, Bairavaa stars Vijay and Keerthy Suresh in the lead roles. But is the film worth your time? Our critic is watching the film at a theatre right now and has sent us his first impression of the film. After the superhit Theri last year, Ilayathalapathy Vijay returns to appease his fans for another blockbuster in Bairavaa. Make no mistake, Bairavaa is totally a massy flick that is tailored to make his fans go crazy. His entry scene is enough proof of that. He is again playing the usual superhero, the saviour of the downtrodden.
This time, he plays Bairavaa, whom we first see as a recovery agent for a bank who makes defaulters of huge loan amounts to return money. While attending his boss’s daughter’s wedding, he meets and falls in love with her friend Malarvili (Keerthy Suresh). However Malarvili has a dark past that brings Bairavaa in confrontation with a dreaded businessman PK (Jagapathi Babu). So yeah, same ol’ same ol’. Everything is there that you expect from a Vijay mass project here – an entry only Tamil hero can pull off, a tussle with huge, ugly goons that see the hero emerge a victor without a scratch, a massy dance number, a comic sidekick, a heroine who is a rural beauty, a social message and so on.
So Bairavaa is nothing but a typical mass flick that you have seen countless times in Tamil cinema. Nothing wrong with a massy entertainer unless you give it a new spin, like Vijay’s last movie Theri. But don’t expect anything of that sort in Bairavaa. This is just another Samaritan superhero vs one note villain’s saga, that will leave you bored after one point. At least the first half gave you the impression.
The first half is a typical masala of action, songs, romance and humour. Vijay is another role that again waters his political ambitions, if the rumours are to be true. Seriously, doesn’t the man gets bored doing the same stuff over and over again? Going by how the first half goes, it would be stupid to expect anything new from the rest of the movie.
