Bollywood Crazies Opinion: The film is full on action thriller from start to end. There is only few scenes of emotions and that too in the second half. The first half ends smoothly on a high note with an action sequence. The problem is with the second half where the story seems like a bit stretched and overloaded. The film lacks emotions but yes it is high on action and huge some of money has been spent on that. Another good thing is that, this film is par with the action movies that we see in Hollywood. The standard of action scenes and bike sequences hasn’t been seen in India ever in this way. Talking about the performances, both Kartikeya and Ajith Kumar have done their part pretty well. The best thing about this film apart from action is it’s background score by Ghibran. Yes, the music by Yuvan Shankar Raja is applaud worthy. The production value is also good and that looks visible in every frame. The writing is weak and that is why it didn’t get connected with the audience in a proper way. As I saw this film in Hindi dubbed version, dubbing artist Sanket Mhatre voice doesn’t suit to Thala Ajith. Apart from that, the dubbing for other actors is decent. The screenplay is not up to the mark and this film has flaws especially in the middle of second half. There isn’t any songs to cheer up for the audience, which is also a big negative point.
This movie has been written and directed by H Vinoth. It has been produced by Boney Kapoor. The cinematography has been done by Nirav Shah and the editing work handled by Vijay Velukutty. The musical score has been given by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
Valimai movie budget hasn’t been revealed yet by the makers but it could be reported around 110-120 crores maximum.
Altogether, Valimai is one of those action thriller films of India that is certainly a one time watch. It is high on action but low on emotions.
Last Word: Valimai is for Thala Ajith fans and especially for action movie lovers.
