Valiyavan Tamil Movie Review

Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  Times Of India | Review By -M Suganth Rating-4
If you find this Maan Karate-like set-up ludicrous, this is definitely not the film for you. With one of the most preposterous scripts in recent times, M Saravanan, the director of Engaeyum Eppothum disappoints in Valiyavan, which wants to be a youthful romantic film, a family drama

  •  CNN IBN | Review By -Karthik Keramalu Rating-4
It's a well-guarded surprise. Agreed! Even then, the director loses his way via a voiceover in the climax. Had there been no voiceover, the impact would have been greater. "Moral of the story" is, you know, vitally unnecessary. Just when you think that there's something in the end to make

  •  Bangalore Mirror | Review By -RS Prakash Rating-4
Actor Jai, who was one of the lead characters in director Saravanan's debut vehicle Engeyum Eppodhum, has joined hands with Saravanan for the second time in Valiyavan. If their earlier combination showcased a social theme, Valiyavan is an action film laced with humour and romance.

  •  Filmi Beat | Review By -Avinash Gopinath Rating-4
From the narration and screenplay point of view, Valiyavan is an absolute disaster from a director who was hailed for his intriguing screenplay in his very first movie, Engaeyum Eppothum. M Saravanan has baffled everyone with his poor execution and weak writing. For a movie

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Gautaman Bhaskaran Rating-3
Saravanan has not been able to rope in great cast either. Jai never seems to be able to get out of the sleepy, wooden look of his, and even in those moments of sheer desperation and anger, when revenge overwhelms him, he exhibits little energy. He comes off as a dull actor sleepwalking

  •  Rediff | Review By -S Saraswathi Rating-4
Valiyavan.  Unfortunately, the film fails to create the same magic.  Valiyavan is just a slow-paced, ordinary romantic comedy that intends to spread a message of patriotism against the backdrop of the special bond shared by a father and his grown up son. The film has Andrea Jeremiah

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Raisa Nasreen Rating-4
When the posters of Valiyavan fist came out featuring Jai flaunting his six-pack abs, it looked like this is going to be an interesting watch. But the movie turned out to be completely opposite to what the posters promised. Yes, Jai did reveal his washboard abs, but the purpose of doing so failed

  •  Behind Woods | Review By -BW Review Board Rating-4
It looks like Saravanan had known about the exaggerations and his attempt at making the climax a metaphor to explain a message that has not much to do with the film, breaks the entire purpose of the 2 hour 20 minute long movie. But, the good thing is, it doesn’t kill the entertainment.

  •  The Hindu | Review By -Baradwaj Rangan
So a certain amount of pointlessness in the early portions is par for the course. What’s shocking in M. Saravanan’s Valiyavan is how excruciating this pointlessness is. You may end up feeling physical pain. The first half is almost entirely devoted to the romantic track between Vinod

  •  Piping Hot Views | Review By -PHV Reviewer
It is unethical to bifurcate a movie’s entertainment quotient based on the intermission but this particular film is such that it takes an entire half to get serious. Yes, the protagonist’s innocence needs to be established before making him the larger than life hero, but it is a taken a tad

  •  Indiaglitz | Rating-5
The director has put togethera pair who looks quite amicable together. We might try to stereotype Jai as much as we can, but theactor still pulls off at what he is best, this time as an action packed six pack hero he sizzles in the second half. Andrea on the other hand is gorgeous, drives down a luxurious car and presents herself remarkably. The climax street
