Malayalam filmmaker Vineeth Sreenivasan of Jacobinte Swargarajyam and Hridayam-fame, took to his Instagram to share a few words of appreciation for the recently-released film Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu (VTK), directed by Gautham Menon.

Vineeth Sreenivasan's post read, "It's been two days since I saw Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu, and I am still thinking about the film. Because we have had so many crime dramas in the recent past, I don't know how far this film impacted the audience. The entertainment is not 'on the face, loud-natured.' But the performance, the making, the tweaking of tried and tested sequences, the sheer brilliance in the writing makes me want to watch this film again."

Further, the Thattathin Marayathu director, added that VTK is his favourite Gautham Menon film after Kaakha Kaakha and his favourite Silambarasan film of all times. "His performance is so detailed and so carefully done. Some filmmakers after a certain age and experience hone their craft into its finest shape and form. That's when they shine brighter than ever."

Vineeth equally praised Neeraj Madhav for his rap portions in VTK.

Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu has music by AR Rahman and is bankrolled by Dr Ishari K Ganesh under Vels Film International.

The film is written by Jeyamohan and features Siddhi Idnani as the female lead. VTK will be released in two parts.

Speaking about Silambarasan, in an interview, Gautham said, "Simbu has always been a performer, but he has developed considerably as an actor. I'm not sure if the difference is due to age or the entire "Atman" ideology, but I do notice it. Except for a brief period when Muthu may remind you of Karthik from Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya, you won't ever see the Simbu of old in VTK."

Gautham Menon added that he didn't want to translate VTK into other languages since it would seem so contrived to hear a Tamil boy moving to Mumbai speak in Malayalam or Hindi. "Although the trailers have voice overs in several languages, I believe that a Tamil film with a strong cultural foundation is best watched in Tamil, preferably with subtitles for non-Tamil speakers."
