Vivekam is a Telugu dubbed version of Tamil movie “Vivegam”, starring Ajith Kumar, Vivek Oberoi, Kajal Aggarwal, Akshara Haasan. It is the 57th movie of Ajith and 3rd movie with director Siva. This combination already got two blockbuster hits (Veeram, Vedalam). Teaser and trailer of Vivekam shows that Ajith is playing the role of a military officer. Fans have lot of expectations on this movie, lets see whether this movie can live up to their expectations or not.
Ajay Kumar aka AK (Ajith) is a secret agent based in Europe, his job is to find the ever eluding criminals and eliminate them, he is very intelligent and fearless by nature which puts him in the top class of the agents.
His team consists of 5 members and Aryan (Vivek Oberoi) is the most important member of the team.
Ajay gets an important mission and as part of the mission he gets hold of Natasha (Akshara Hassan), a hacker and while transport her to the base gets shot. What happens to Ajay and Natasha? Who tried to kill Ajay? Was Ajay able to complete his mission? Watch it on silver screen to find out.
‘Vivekam’ got huge response for its teaser and trailers because of the very intelligent trailers released by director Siva and living up to the huge expectations the movie is made on a grand scale shot mainly in foreign locations which further increases the grandeur.
Technical aspects of the movie are in par to Hollywood level and the presence and the action skills of Ajith mesmerise the audience. This movie is an action oriented movie and the complete concentration was given to elevate the action episodes and the scenes combined by the mind game and the roller coaster ride between the lead actors stand highlight to the movie.
Scenes where Ajith scouts for Natasha and the pre climax part are extra ordinary. The whole movie revolves around Ajith and Vivek oberoi and both the roles are equally elevated in the movie. But few scenes are way above thinking ability of a common audience and they would feel as if some bouncers were darted on them, the director simply does not give enough time to understand a scene before a new scene pops in, the camera work in some scenes are very irritating.
Few emotional scenes between Ajith and Kajol are very attractive, and kajol once again shines in her character. Akshara Hassan has limited screen presence but she attracts with her very good acting skills. Audience can’t expect any mass masala or comedy scenes in this movie as this is a full length action entertainer but few scenes like heroes elevation are actually missed.
Anirudh music and back ground score is average and does not help the movie at all and in some scenes it is actually irritating. Editing is top class, action scenes are very well shot.
Music and Back ground score.
Pure action entertainer.
Rating: 2.75 /5
