Valimai Movie Review: Ajith Kumar, Kartikeya Gummakonda, Huma Qureshi, and Sumithra starrer Valimai, helmed by H Vinoth has hit the theaters today on 24th February. Let’s see the story of Valimai.
Story: ACP Arjun (Ajith Kumar), is someone who does notbelieve in custodial violence or encounters. When a gang of bikers wreak havoc in the city, snatching chains and murdering the innocent people mercilessly, Arjun takes the responsibility to save the city. What is the role of Karthikeya in this? How does Arjun nab the mastermind of the bike gang network? To get these answers, one should watch the movie Valimai on the silver screen.
Performance: It is known that Ajith Kumar is a car racer and is an action junkie. Super energetic Ajith kumar’ swag and performance are highlighted. In action sequences and bike chasing scenes, he steals the show. The mass audience feels Kartikeya is perfect in the role of slick villain. Huma Qureshi has done justice with her role. Though Ajith’s screen presence is one of the big plus for this film, but a bigger positive is that Valimai doesn’t depend on that alone. Huma Qureshi and Kartikeya Gummakonda too shine well. Kartikeya’ physique and menacing looks add more weight to the antagonist character. Rest of the cast of Valimai perform accordingly.
Technical: The highlights are the breathtaking action sequences that involve a bike chase between Ajith Kumar and Kartikeya. The action sequences are of an international standard. Coming on the work of director H Vinoth, he takes his own time to establish the characters and how the crimes happen before introducing Ajith Kumar. Nirav Shah’s cinematography is eye pleasing. The songs slow down the screenplay slightly. The BGM by Yuvan Shankar Raja keeps the narrative engaging. The editing is good and the production values are rich.
Analysis: The audiences love the madness and adrenaline rush that Valimai offers them. The movie is all about the battle between good and evil.
Rating : 2.75/5
