RJ Balaji's much-awaited Veetla Vishesham has finally hit screens today and the film has been receiving rave reviews from the audience. Veetla Vishesham is the remake of the Hindi film, Badhaai Ho (2018), directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma. The star cast for the Tamil version includes RJ Balaji, Aparna Balamurali, Urvashi, Sathyaraj and the late KPAC Lalitha. The plot revolves around a middle-aged couple, who get pregnant, much to the chagrin of their grown-up sons. Balaji has co-written and co-directed the film along with NJ Saravanan, with whom he had earlier teamed up for Mookuthi Amman, which had Nayanthara playing the titular character. The star cast for the Hindi version comprised Ayushmann Khurana, Sanya Malhotra, Gajaraj Rao, Neena Gupta and Surekha Sikhri.
The film's producer Boney Kapoor had shared ahead of the release, "The heartwarming #VeetlaVishesham will make you feel all the kinds of emotions! 🥰 So, don’t miss out on this family entertainer! Book your tickets now. #VeetlaVisheshamFromJun17 @BayViewProjOffl @ZeeStudios_ @RJ_Balaji @mynameisraahul #RomeoPictures @SureshChandraa (sic)."
Balaji had revealed during the aggressive promotions of the film that he had made a few changes to suit the taste of the Tamil audience and had added that he was quite confident about the Tamil version. And it looks like he is indeed right about it as many have stated that the film is even better than the original.
