Silambarasan TR's much-awaited gangster saga Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu has opened to positive reviews today. The film marks the comeback of Gautham Menon, Silambarasan and AR Rahman for the third time. But those are not the only reasons that expectations are riding high on the film.
Silambarasan has undergone a makeover for the film
Vendhu Thanindhthu Kaadu revolves around Muthu, a youngster who is struggling to make his ends meet, but goes on to become a dreaded gangster in future. The film follows his journey. Silambarasan has undergone a major body transformation for his role in the film and his performance in the film has been lauded by everyone.
Gautham Menon experiments with a new genre
Though Gautham Menon, who is predominantly known for his romantic films, has experimented with action in films like Vettaiyadu Vilayadu and Yennai Arindhaal, Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu will mark a tectonic shift in his style of filmmaking. The film is predominantly a gangster saga and is rustic and raw.
Siddhi Idnani's debut in Kollywood
Siddhi Idnani, who has earlier worked in films like Jamba Lakidi Pamba, Prema Katha Chithram 2 and Anukunnadi Okati Ayinadi Okati in Telugu, will make her debut in Tamil with the action entertainer. Her role is said to be crucial for the film. Silambarasan and Siddhi Idnani are said to have a lovely chemistry in the film.
AR Rahman is back!
When AR Rahman scored the music for Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya and Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada, the albums went on to become chartbusters. In Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu, too, the composer has belted out an impressive album with songs like Kaalathukkum Nee Venum, Muthu's Journey, Marakuma Nenjam, Unna Nenachadhum and Mallipoo.
Screenwriter Jeyamohan's involvement in the film
The plot of Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu is based on a popular work of novelist B Jeyamohan. Menon has used the plot from Agnikunjondru Kanden (which was inspired by Subramania Bharati's poem) by screenwriter B Jeyamohan.
