Kollywood star Ajith Kumar’s Valimai has hit the screens today simultaneously in Telugu as well. Let’s analyse it.

Story:

To crack the whereabouts of a crime network being organized by a guy named Narein( Karthikeya), Andhra police appoints ACP Arjun( Ajith). How will Arjun track Narein and his crime network? That forms the main USB of the film.

On-screen performances:

Ajith Kumar is fine with his looks and acted decently in the cop role. His performance in the emotional scenes bring depth to the proceedings. Ajith’s bike riding skills are amazing and fans will love it.

Karthikeya gets a solid role and the actor did a good job in the negative shaded character. The young actor’s screen presence and physical transformation elevates a few crucial scenes nicely.

Huma Qureshi is decent in her role as a cop but her screen time is limited to only a fewer scenes. Other character artists who did supporting roles are okay with their performances.

Off-screen talents:

Director H Vinoth’s core concept of interlinking crime and family emotions is good and he tried his best in executing the action sequences in an impressive manner but lack of proper scene order and abrupt narration dilutes the mood of the viewers.

Coming to background score, Ghibran did a good job as his works registers in all action sequences. On the other hand, songs composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja are not up to the mark.

The cinematography by Nirav Shah is outstanding as he showcases the action sequences on a rich note. Vijay Velukutty’s editing work is disappointing as close to thirty minutes of the film can be chopped off.

Production values for this star-studded movie are good.

Positive Points:

  • Ajith’s screen presence
  • Karthikeya’s acting

Negative Points:

  • Uneven screenplay
  • Lack of emotional connectivity

Verdict:

In an overview, Valimai is an action-oriented family drama that has top-notch stunts and bike chases. But lack of gripping presentation makes the film a below-average fare.
