Review – Vaanam Kottattum Tamil Movie Review & Box-Office
Vaanam Kottattum is a revenge drama with Mani Ratnam’s take on the plot. Brilliant performances from the lead cast back the film. The chemistry between Raadhika & Sarathkumar is as real as it gets. Vikram Prabhu & Aishwarya Rajesh intimacy has also been depicted appealingly. The rest of the cast including Madonna Sebastian, Shanthanu, Nandha have also done their part well. Sid Sriram has made an impressive debut with some lovely songs along with the background music scored partnering with K.
Mani Ratnam’s touch is evident on-screen & one can accept this as director Dhana is a long time associate of the maverick director. But, Dhana has also showcased his skills of direction by extracting the most matured performances from the actors.
Coming to the negatives, the plot is not compelling enough & the second half also feels a bit lag with some unconventional scenes.
Overall, Vaanam Kottattum could be a good one for the family audiences with the lead cast performances & is a strictly average one for others.
