Vetri Maaran's Viduthalai Part 1 recently made its digital debut on ZEE5 and fans of the film couldn't be more excited. The action drama, which hit screens on March 31 worldwide, opened to positive reviews from critics and audience alike. Here's why you shouldn't miss the digital release of the film.

Extended version aka Director's cut
The film is currently streaming on ZEE5 and what's interesting is that the version that is streaming is an extended version of the theatrical release. While the runtime of the theatrical version was 2 hours and 16 minutes, the digital version spans 2 hours and 32 minutes. Many have praised the director's cut of the film. So, if you do not want to miss out on the extra ten minutes, this is your pick.

Soori's outstanding performance
The film marks Soori's debut as a hero and his performances have come in for a lot of praise. The ace comedian has effortlessly slipped into the role of police constable who is involved in an operation called Ghost Hunt to arrest fugitive leader of a 'separatist' group called Makkal Padai.

Soori-Vijay Sethupathi face-off
One of the highlights of the film is the  face-off between Soori and Vijay Sethupathi. While Soori as Vaathiyar owns the role in style, giving him tough competition is Soori.

Ilaiyaraaja's scintillating music
The film's marks the maiden collaboration between Isai Gnani Ilaiyaraaja and Vetri Maaran. While the songs Kaattu Malli and Unnoda Nadantha are a hit, the background score of the film, too, ups the ante.

Velraj's outstanding cinematography
Viduthalai opens with a breathtaking scene involving a train accident, despite it being a massive tragedy. There are many such awe-inspiring scenes in the film, including the way the lush greenery of the forest has been captured, along with the grim storyline.

Vetri Maaran's filmmaking
Vetri Maaran is known for his rustic and raw take on issues, and this film is also the same. After Visaaranai, the director once again delves into police brutality in the film.
