In all his movies, irrespective of the character he is playing, Vijay Antony “acts” as if he has deep secrets and an intense personality. This film is no exception, but luckily for Vijay Antony, the story being an unusual murder mystery suits him well. Kolaigaran (2019) starts with the confession of Vijay Antony of murdering someone to the police inspector played by Arjun. Did he really the murderer or not, and, why is the story. Unlike, most in this genre, the film doesn’t go for a grand reveal, instead, like an onion, the suspense is lifted one at a time,…

Vijay Antony continues to compensate for his lack of acting skills with the good quality of the scripts he chooses. Thimiru Pudichavan (2018) is a run-of-the-mill honest police officer against a local rowdy who uses young adults for his crime empire. What was different was the treatment, there were only a few illogical or heroic sequences (we need to discount the climax),  and most of the characters and the dialogues came out straight and genuine. It is a movie that was not great, but certainly watchable, especially for someone who likes Vijay Antony style of films. I felt the screenplay was something that the…

I have a liking for Vijay Antony’s films, that may be due to the stories he opts for, and for his non-heroic performances! He certainly has to improve as an actor, but that doesn’t stop him from trying and I like that. Kaali (2018), his latest film, is about a successful heart surgeon Bharath (played by Vijay Antony) who sees in his dreams a little boy being chased by a bull – to figure out why he gets this dream and to identify his biological parents he comes to India and settles in a small village. Immediately on arrival, Bharath discovers the…

After the successful release of Pichaikkaran (2016), Vijay Antony has earned the reputation of selecting well the stories for his films. With his recent Annadurai (2017), he has missed the beat. The film opens with a hero introduction for Annadurai (Vijay Antony)  – who is a drunkard saving the modesty and life of a girl kidnapped by five men. Next day, the girl (Mahima) falls in love with Annadurai, who turns her away saying his heart belongs to his Ester who is buried in the cemetery. This is not the only girl who loves Annadurai, we later see the next…

Following different story selections of Vijay Antony in his films Saithan (2016) & Pichaikkaran (2016), I went in with expectations to Yaman (2017). The story begins as a typical village caste rivalry, but it turned out to be a city based gangster/politics film. In a village near Tirunelveli which is the centre of most rural films of Kollywood, a succession rivalry follows between the son Thangapandian (Arul D. Shankar) of the deceased four-time MLA and his political heir Arivudai Nambi (Vijay Antony). Thangapandian deceptively murders Nambi and starts his successful journey in politics. Nambi’s wife commits suicide leaving her young son…
