Director Vijay is known for conquering the audiences heart with basic human goodness and purity of love in his films. These are formulas he’s employed to great success in previous films. In Vanamagan, Vijay has perfectly added all the necessary commercial ingredients and at the same time, he makes sure that his classy touch and screenplay nuances are perfect.
Kavya (Sayyeshaa) is a extremely rich girl who lives in the materialistic world that she does not care about anyone’s emotions and need. She is a poor little tycoon whose parents passed away in an accident and is being brought up by her guardian and father’s friend (Prakash Raj), who looks after her business empire. Vanamagan has plenty of logical loopholes and a familiar plot but what makes the film interesting is the purity of love that exists between Jayam Ravi and Sayyeshaa.
As the story goes on, the movie becomes predictable but the thing which he has, so called humor and performance made the movie a good break for him. The action scenes and Sayyeshaa’s performance improved than the movies before and made the movie an interesting watch. Jayam Ravi chose a different set of story who is trying to experiment with the experience he got from the movies.
Vanamagan is brilliant, thanks to the stellar cinematography of Thirru, who captures both the urban and forest life with great elan. Of late, Vanamagan is easily one of the best albums of Harris Jayaraj and songs have been beautifully picturised. The VFX portion involving the tiger has also been pulled off well by the team and it deserves special applause. Ravi’s make up by National award winner Pattanam Rasheed is top notch.
