“Varisu,” the family entertainer, scripted and directed by Vamsi Paidipally, is produced by Dil Raju. Hari and Ashishor Solomon co-scripted the film. The film has “Vijay” in the titular role. Rashmika Mandanna, “Jayasudha,” Prakash Raj, Khushbu Sundar, Sarathkumar, Meka Srikanth, Sangeetha Krish, Bharath Reddy, Ganesh Venkatraman, “Sriman,” “Sathish,” John Vijay, “Shaam,” and Yogi Babu are cast in the prominent roles. The songs and the BGM are composed by S Thaman. Karthik Palani cranked the camera, and KL Praveen edited the film.


Rajendran is a biggie businessman who wants his legacy to be continued after him. When his first two sons, Jai and Ajay, are aiming at their father’s chair, the third son, Vijay, has a different aim. When Rajendran makes Vijay his business heir, his elder sons are furious and join the arch-rival of Rajendran. How Vijay proves to his brothers that he is the right successor for his dad and how he unites his split family forms the rest of the plot.

Star Performance

Vijay’s performance looks more mature, and he has done an excellent job. Rashmika plays a regular heroine, and her chemistry with Vijay works well. Jayasudha is good in her emotional performances, and so does Sarathkumar, and Prabhu . Prakash Raj is a usual villain, and the rest of the cast has done what is needed.


Vamsi is well-known for his sentimental movies, and his bilingual film, “Thozha,” was celebrated well in Tamil. After a gap, he directed a Tamil film, and it is evident that he knows the pulse of the Vijay fans and family audience. The film has emotional elements to attract the family audience. However, the content is not unique and is a mix of most of the hit family entertainers in Telugu. The production design is neat. The dialogues could’ve been better. The second half looked a bit stretchy. The cinematography is good, and the editing is decent. The songs are foot-tapping. The Amma song by KS Chithra is mesmerizing.

What’s There?

  • The performance of the stars
  • The visuals, songs, and BGM

What’s Not There?

  • The CG works could have been better
  • The story is not unique


Varisu is a decent family entertainer, and hopefully, the Vijay entertainer would satisfy his audience after a long gap.
