'Ippadai Vellum' Movie Review
A fine plot that needs to be told sincerely, the transitions that shows the effort of brilliant filmmaking, tangles that connect almost all the shots of the film, 'Ippadai Vellum' should have been a masterly written film. But what stops it from being so? Read on.
With the magnum opus production banner, Lyca, on its side, 'Ippadai Vellum' has been a new watching experience. Detailing is one part that funds are poured into, which is what makes the film exciting.
Udhayanithi Stalin, as an actor has improved himself with so much enthu but still needs a lot of self examination to justify his career. Manjima Mohan, in 'Ippadai Vellum', is yet another lead lady that has a less scope to perform. Soori is who that's going to leave an impact with his acting this time. The comedy actor does his interesting role with ease and the audience are awaiting his screen presence. Well done, champ.
Back to the part of filmmaking, a super satisfying plot that just needs an hour to be placed has been exploited for the commercial convenience. Too much of intricacies in the film keeps us distracted, bored, and mismanaged.
There are some distracting shots and unprofessional colour grading in the film which fades off some extraordinary captures that the film has. Songs as well as background score put us in another level of difficulty in watching this film.
"Every decision in a screenplay should be taken by choice, not by compulsion", Sidfield suggests. Here, it's been taken for granted and the characters do what they what to do.
Giving it all to yourselves, 'Ippadai Vellum' has its own pros and cons but surely deserves a watch. Give it a try.
Verdict: Watch out for some out of the box transitions, and brilliantly connected dots all over the film.
