Vinnaithandi Varuvaya Hd Movie 44
After making a series of action films, Gautham Vasudev Menon actively chose to make an "out and out love story" at the insistence of his close associates, and marked a return to the genre for the first time since Minnale (2001). Initially titled Vennilavae Vennillavae, inspired by the title of a song from Minsara Kanavu, Menon started writing the film as a simple love story which slowly became an intense love story, as the scripting phase progressed. Stating that the film would narrate the romantic tale of two people called Karthik and Jessie over a period of almost three years, he revealed that the film would be "conversation driven" and hoped "everybody will identify with the lead pair". Menon took the script to producer Manjula Ghattamaneni, who asked him to narrate the film to her brother Mahesh Babu and the movie was a Tamil and Telugu bilingual. Menon initially felt that the film would not suit the actor, but later agreed preliminary terms to make it in Telugu titled Jessie with the actor and have A. R. Rahman as the music composer, as he was impressed with the story.

Sify said that it was "Very good" further citing "The film is a must watch for those who cares for cinema of sense and substance. It stresses the fact that Tamil cinema has to break the mould if it aims to grab eyeballs. Gautham Menon has crafted a movie that will stay in our hearts for a long, long time." Indiaglitz stated "If and only if, you have all the time in the world, and you like the slow romantic genre, you'll enjoy this one."
The Protagonist and his girlfriend are on a road trip on a Royal Enfield bike. Suddenly they are hit by a container lorry and they are tossed up in the air. The bike, the hero, heroine all three are tossed up in the air. The bike took most of the damage followed by the hero, the container and last but also least the heroine. What comes next is not an ambulance nor a patrol vehicle belonging to the highway police department but a song. That too one of the best feel-good songs in recent times, Thalli pogathey. That is the moment I decided that I should do some analysis about the movies directed by Gowtham Menon.
He has directed 10 movies so far and out of that 50% of the movies has the protagonist either as a cop or someone who becomes one by the end of the movie. In one of these movies, the hero is an Engineering graduate, MBA Graduate and prepares for civil service examination for two and half years and becomes a cop. Talk about clarity in life. On average, movies with cop as the protogonist has longer runtime compared to the other ones.
Another important aspect of Gowtham's movie is the songs. Songs are too good to miss in his movies. Even people who have the habit of leaving the theater hall for a smoke during songs stay back, listen to the song and then leave for a smoke once it is over. Such is the reputation of songs in his movies. I took the total runtime of the songs and compared it with the runtime of the movie.
29% of the movie Neethane En Ponvasantham is songs. Almost close to one-third of the movie is songs. Thyagaraja Bhagavathar would have made a better hero for this movie than Jeeva. There must be a disclaimer before this movie which says "do not go out for smoking during the songs. If you do so, by the end of the movie you might get cancer."
If you look closely the previous movie directed by him does not have any song at all. If I remember correctly, there were allegations in the media that his movies perform only because of songs. In order to prove them wrong, he directed the movie Nadunisi Naaigal without even a single song. But the movie did not fare well in the box office. That might have got him angry and lead to the decision to mock the audience by directing a music album in the name of movie.
The songs were quite brilliantly placed in the Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya. You can see the orange bars being placed almost equidistant from one another. It might be one of the reasons why the movie is such a huge hit. The last quarters in all the cop movies are relatively free from songs thus making space for the action sequences, while in other love stories a song in the last quarter is a must. Just look at Neethane en Poonvasantham bar you won't be able to tell which one are the scenes and which are the songs. All the songs in the movie Atcham Enbathu Madamayada are placed in that first that too little far from the mid point. If had gone little late to the theater you would have spent your whole time waiting for the songs with the thought that it is yet to come.
There are 6 duets (indicated by the color pink) in the movies where the hero is an ordinary person and there are 8 duets in the movies where the hero is a cop or becomes a cop. Guns and roses go well with each other. The blue ones are male singles and green ones are female singles. This is a good indication of whether the hero is in love with the heroine or vice versa. Movies Minnale and Vinnaithandi Varuvaya are dominated by blue bricks indicating that the hero is the one who is deeply in love. At least in Minnale there is a female single but in Vinnaithandi Varuvaya the heroine doesn't even care to sing a song for the lover boy.
The movie Minnale has a sad male single and Vinnaithandi Varuvaya has a happy duet before the climax but the endings of the movie are reversed. Minnale has a happy ending and VTV has a relatively sad one. Same is the case in Neethane En Ponvasantham which has a sad song before the happy ending climax. So does Vettaiyadu Vilaiyadu. Next time when you watch a GVM flick if there is a sad song before the climax you will be able to predict that there are good chances of the movie having a happy ending. This is just one of the Insight I could pull out from the consolidated plot. Do read the plot for a while and you can come up with your own interesting insights. Looking forward to reading your insights and watching next GVM flick.
One number love story was my debut followed by films on policekaarans with lauvv and action. I did yet another cop film. Then I tried to Ctrl+V Derailed followed by a film on Daddy Daddy, Son Son. I sat at home for a year wondering what to do next. "Time for a love story", I told myself and started working on the same. I finalized my artistes, technicians, locales and started shooting ....without a story. I booked Oscar-Grammy award winner A R Rahman as the music director for my Love Story...without a story. The shooting continued.... without a story. The film was ready and a big Giant bought my film. I was all excited . I went around the globe promoting the film. The film released two days ago. I am still looking for the story. If you managed to find it contact me on gautam.englishwonlymenon [at] vtv [dot] com. Thank you very much.Vaat The VettiTravelling, meeting, presenting, sales figures counting, coughing, more and more coughing for two weeks and at the end of all this you still wanted to go and watch only because of Gautam Menon-ARR combo? "Vetti Vetti para vetti!Unakku venum" - ennaye naa sollinden.Vaat The ValentineIts love at first sight for yet another Karthik (Young superstar Simbhu) from the tamizh film world the moment he sees Jessie (Trisha), his neighbour. This budding assistant director in films jumps up in the air, does an SRKai movement, chases her on his bike, hits his chest, speaks Englipees dialogues which wonly Good-she, Church Park, WCC peoples understand. Jessie doesn't really like him... or so she says. She is very clear that her dad will never approve of a Hindu boy and hence refuses to entertain Karthik . But he is determined. He chases her all the way till Kerala and she kinda falls for him but is vehement. They travel back to Chennai and after ore da lauv in the train, she still says No. Then yes. Then No.. Then she leaves him and off she goes to UK (or US or some phoren country) only to say "Let's get married" in the end. He makes his first film predictably titled 'Jessie' and yeverybody loves the film. Jessie applauds his effort and a suspense awaits the viewer. Is she is love with him or not? Why did he make that film? Why did she say No,Yes, No and again Yes time and again? The director is as clueless as you and I are.Velli Thiraiyil VanduttangaThat's the literal translation of "They have arrived!" he he he. Agreed. Simbhu looks cool and has done a decent job, much better than his earlier films that I have seen on Sun and KTV. But somewhere, the I-chew-all-my-dialogues-and-spit-them-out is still intact. And that's probably why I couldn't see him in the same league as former chocolate boys of Kollywood-Bollywood- Madhavan (Alaipayuthey wonly), Aamir Khan (QSQT), Surya (several films :-p). Trisha's work is very good. Very understated and looks lovely except for a few closeups where the pancake makeup doesn't quite help camouflage her puffy eyes.Vadakan The VeerakadhaToo much mallu-ing puts me off. The heroine is from the Mallu land, speaks Mallu on and off, there are scenes involving the entire family where the dialogues are fully "ende, unde , aaaaraaanu, oonu kazhinggghoo". Thank God I saw the English-subtitled version. Do the TN released prints have tamizh subtitled for mallu dialogues?Vaat The VorkingTwo people in love, daddy and brother oppose. He yearns for her. She feels for him. They sing together... dance together. They separate. They are back. We have seen all of this before. Its a simple plot yet narrated with no melodrama, aruvaal, Tata Sumo, "daaaai" etc. The burden is entirely on the lead and they have managed to pull it off quite well... at least till the first half.The intimate scenes between Trisha and Simbhu are very well conceived, picturized. You can totally relate to them.Very Terrific ViewfinderSuper impressed with cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa (Eeram, Unnaipol Oruvan). He has managed to retain the very middle class look of the film through and through with no flashy look-I-am-the-cameraman compositions.Vogue and The VagueTrisha's sarees are going to become hot stuff post this film thanks to costume designer Nalini Sriram. But she could have done a much better job in the Western outfits. These look vague, put together in a hurry and terrible in the Kannukkul Kann song.Very True VaarthaigalLike all Goutam Menon's films this one too has 'normal' everyday dialogues. There is even a dialogue in the film taking a dig at his own films with English dialogues.The Kaadhal dialogues like "Yaarum un kann vazhiya enna paakaliye!" fit into the film beautifully.Nice.Chinmayi's dubbing works for Trisha. Ganesh one of the producers who plays Simbhu's friend is witty.Vinnai Taandiya Vinner......A R Rahman! Have been listening to all the songs for over a month now. My morning routine starts with Omana Penne moving on to Hosannah, Kannukkul Kannai, Anbil Avan, Vinnaithandi varuvaya, Mannippaya and ofcourse Aaromale. Two rotations of the songs are a must. The thing about ARR's songs is the simple melody enhanced by the arrangement. If you listen to them carefully, there will be a musical note heard far far away in the background or the extra 'gamakam' humming fading down in the second paragraph or a violin piece for 5 seconds in the middle of the song. In my opinion, these are the stuff that make them have great recall value.In this film, there is a scene where Simbhu hums the ARR background score from Bombay, when he sees Trisha in the church. It goes "Pa sa ni sa ni sa ri sa ni dha pa ma ga pa ma ga ma ri". It instantly brought back the shot where Arvind Swamy looks at Manisha Koirali from the top and the camera going round from his point of view. Super!Vaat The Vorking-notI mentioned in one of the earlier paragraphs about the burden on the lead cast. In the second half it becomes extremely difficult for us to sit through 'coz of the same reason. Simbhu and Trisha are there in all the scenes through and through uttering the same thing again and again. Becomes repetitive after a point.Songs are super but Gautam Menon disappoints with his picturization. Suddenly some Lou Bega types emerge from somewhere and point their fingers at us doing the rap-rap stuff. Disappointing.Repetition - The director probably thinks that people who watch the film are dumb idiots who need to be told the same things several times over. The fact that Trisha's dad doesn't approve of inter-faith marriage and that Simbhu is totally in love with Trisha is repeated over and over again. And every dialogue between them has their name 'attached' at the end of it. "Unakku purilaya Karthik? Enga appa-kku idu pidikkadu Karthik. Karthik, enakku unna pidikkum Karthik!"... Ayyo! we know the names of the lead characters and we understand the problem between them. Why is this repeated like ten times in a scene?Vaat The VagueTrisha and Simbhu meet at UK and suddenly the song shifts to US. Simbhu's debut film's credits have Manoj Paramahamsa as the cameraman. I thought Ganesh, his friend (whose screen name i forget) was the director of photography.Vettu-dabba of The VellithiraiSamantha and Naga Chaitanya , son of Nagarjuna play Simbhu's on-screen hero, heroine. This guy can't act for nuts. And I am told he plays Simbhu's role in Telugu version. All the best Andhra-ites!Varthaila vanTha V *!&^@I am not for using foul language in films even if they are beeped out. The f word pops up pretty frequently. It is very evident that the second half had put the Censor board to sleep. Simbhu's tamizh M word goes unedited, un-beeped.Vendaam This VinaiIn the last scene, Trisha asks Simbhu how he managed to get her number and he says "adutha padathula sollaren". "Ayyo, vendam Gautam Menaa - nee padamum edukkavendam , engalukku sollavum vendam" Voltage &The Vegam...are missing in the film.The film is not pacy. It should not be, infact. You really don't mind the slow narrative in the first half because of Simbhu and Trisha. But its completely the opposite in the second half. You get put off with the repetitions (oops! Aint I repeating the same thing again and again? VTV influence I guess!) and the yawwwn climax. There is no high point in the film... everything is in a mega serial pace.Vinnaithandi Varuvaya - A lovely first half is spoilt by the maha boring second half.Vaasalaye Thaandala - 2.5 out of 5
