Performances

Ajith turns into south James bond. His acting is natural. He worked very hard in action scenes. Kajal Aggarwal is not a regular heroine and gave a memorable performance. Vivek Oberoi looks fresh on the screen. Although Akshara Hassan’s role is short she has also impressed. Since the film is a drama between Ajith – Vivek So, no other characters are elevated.

Technical

The film is technically superior. Complete film was shot in the abroad. The locations are mindblowing. Anurath’s background music is an asset for the film. Editing is very sharp. Action scenes are very well and stylish.

Analysis

Vivekam is on par with Hollywood movies, it’s not only an action entertainer but the director Shiva has added some “Vivekam – wisdom” into it. The plot looks like an intelligent one with the protagonist – Antagonist mind games. It gives a feel as if we are watching a Hollywood film. The Natasha explore episode is an incredibly thrilling episode, that gives a tight breath. Even the climax episodes give the same feeling. But in many places, the film goes beyond the average viewer’s thinking. It gives a feel as for how is this possible? In this way, the director tested the intelligence of the audience. The twists in the film also look like bouncers to audience’s intelligence. The affinity between the husband and wife was shown convincingly which is an effort to reach the family audience. Many scenes have gone around technology and their terminology that is a bit confusing.

The opening action sequence, Bike chase, and interval block are on par or better than Hollywood Action Thriller. Director Siva proves again that he has a great taste for action. It has the Best Action part of Indian Cinema ever. A Top-notch International level action thriller with right emotions, visuals, and Grand Making.
