Star Performance

Pradeep Antony did a fantastic job. Aahrav, TJ Bhanu, and Diva Dhawan receive appreciation for their performances. They didn’t seem to be the debut actors.


Arun Prabhu Purushothaman comes with yet another different concept. His way of narration doesn’t differ from that of his debut film, “Aruvi.” He makes the characters narrate and brings in a new style of narration. The characters are designed with meaning. The artists are picked well and placed in the right characters. However, there is a slight lag in the narration. The screenplay could have been crisper. The cinematography is excellent, and the lighting setup and the color shades match the story's mood, especially the visuals in the climax portions are impressive. Editing is perfect. Coming to the music, Pradeep’s BGM is good and fits the script path well.

What’s There?

  • The script is good, and the performances of the stars are impressive
  • The movie is technically brilliant

What’s Not There?

  • The narration and screenplay could have been a little better


Kudos to Sivakarthikeyan for encouraging the talents and bringing in new genres. With a different script, performance, and narrating style, Vaazhl is a movie that comes with a no-regret tag to watch!
