The Sasikumar starrer Vetrivel has hit the screens now. Let’s see how the movie has turned out.


Sasikumar is the eldest son of Ilavarasu, who is a retired teacher. Sasikumar owns a pesticide center and is deeply in love with Miya George. At one juncture, Miya also reciprocates Sasikumar’s love. One day Miya goes to her hometown.

Ananth Nag, who is the brother of Sasi Kumar, pursued his studies overseas and returnsto his home town and falls in love with Varsha, the town’s head’s daughter. Varsha also reciprocates his love. This becomes known to his family, and Ilavarasu approaches Varsha’s family for the alliance. But Prabhu rejects to this marriage due to cast and social prejudice. Sasikumar gets to know about this and tries to help his brother. During a ceremony, he thinks to have kidnapped Varsha along with his friends. But finally, they realize that they had kidnapped Nikhila instead of Varsha. NIkhila was engaged to Prabhu’s sister Viji Chandrasekhar’s daughter.
Sasikumar explains the confusion to  Nikhila. She also understands the situation and takes Sasikumar along with her to make the villagers understand. What happens next? Is Nikhila empathized by the villagers? Does Sasikumar reunite with Miya or there any issue caused due to the problem of Nikita? Watch the movie to know…

Star Performances

Sasikumar is spontaneous in his expressions and does a convincing job. Miya George looks beautiful and slips into her character with ease while Ananth Nag (of Premam) has pulled off his character with conviction. Nikhila has a good screen presence, and she has done justice to her character. Varsha also does full justice to her role. It should be noted that both Varsha and NIkhila are newcomers; however, they have done a commendable job. Ilavarasu and Renuka give seasoned performances. Prabhu, as usual, does a superb job. Thambi Ramaiah evokes laughter whenever he appears on screen. Viji Chandrasekhar essays the antagonist role with utter conviction.


This is the debut film of director Vasanthamani, and he shows confidence in his first attempt itself. He makes sure that the film is not the regular village film. Also, Sasikumar seems to be aware what works for him and hence has chosen this family entertainer. 

What’s there?

  • All the characters are etched well.
  • The cinematography of S R Kathir is one of the highlights of the movie. 
  • The comedy works for the film.
  • Though the first half is predictable, it is engrossing. 
  • D Imman’s music is quite melodious. 

What’s not there?

  • As the movie proceed things get predictable.     
  • The movie brings to our memories several movies like Nadodigal, Sundara Pandiyan, and Thevar Magan.
  • The movie is dragging. 


Vetrivel is an outright family entertainer that can be watched once.
