'Vetrivel' Movie Stills

The Tamil movie has Prabhu, Viji Chandrasekhar, Samuthirakani, Thambi Ramaiah, Ilavarasu, Ananth Nag and others in the cast. "Vetrivel" has SR Kathir's cinematography and AL Ramesh's editing. D Imman has composed the music. "Adiye Unna Paathida," "Onnappola Oruthana" and "Athuva Ithuva" songs have garnered thumbs up from the listeners. 

The trailer has evoked good response from the audience and the success of the audio has helped the movie create positive vibes around it. As a result, people have high expectations from "Vetrivel."

"Vetrivel" is the tale of two brothers played by Sasikumar and Ananth Nag and it is set in the rural backdrop. Ilavarasu and Renuka play the roles of their parents. Sasikumar owns a fertilizer shop in the town and he is behind Janani (Mia George), an officer in the government's agricultural department.

The story takes a twist after the hero's brother falls in love with the daughter of the village panchayat president (Prabhu). The heart-warming familial moments form the crux of the story.

Average Ratings Given by Audience: 2.5

"Vetrivel" has opened to fairly positive reviews from the audience. The movie has good but predictable story to hold the attention of the viewers. It will be thoroughly enjoyed by mass and family audience. The role is tailor-made for Sasikumar and he does his job with ease. Miya George is good, while Nikila and Varsha have played their parts well. Rest other characters have done justice to their roles. 

Technically, the cinematography and editing are flawless, while Thaman's background score is top notch. Find the viewers' response to the Tamil movie below:

#Vetrivel good example of how trailers can be deceiving when the content is different. Half way through, so far good and clean !

#Vetrivel: Looks like director Vasantha Mani's decade long struggle is paying off. This is a solid debut.
#Vetrivel: works and builds on a familiar template yet so good because of the tight narration. Textured stuff.

#VetrivelReview Sasikumar plays to his strengths and churns out another rural entertainer that has shades of Naadodigal and Subramaniapuram.
