Two years after Pokkiri Pongal, the Prabhu Deva – Vijay team returns to rock theaters for another Pongal. 'Villu-Powerfullu', says Vijay at the end of the Villu trailer and that is what we have been promised this Pongal in theaters, a powerful Vijay entertainer for all his fans and for those who love to have a good time.
The director Prabhu Deva has emphatically stated that the movie is an out and out racy entertainer in the Vijay mould, but there is a little extra. If you have seen the trailer, you will know what the extra element is, style. Normally, Vijay films are associated with the raw urban unsophisticated style sense that Chennai can be associated with. But many shots of Villu have shown Ilaya Thalapathi in a more suave and elegant mode. The immaculate suits, trendy blazers and coolers, helicopters, gadgets and all give the movie a bit of a 'Bond' touch, even Prakash Raj sports a new and cool hair style; we have to wait and watch how much of that we can really be experienced on screen.
The one-liners, punch dialogues and all the festival elements seem to be there in oodles. Then, there is the inevitable part of any Vijay film; songs and dances. Listen to the music once and you know that this was made by Devi Sri Prasad especially to suit the feet of quicksilver that Vijay has. Look forward to several racy foot tapping moments in the theater.
Apart from Vijay, the cast has Nayanthara, one of the most wanted ladies in Kollywood. Prabhudeva has gone on record to say that once Villu releases, the Vijay-Nayan pair will be the hottest in Kollywood circles. You know what to expect when Nayan is heroine, glamour. But this time she is said to have shared the comedy department with Vaigai Puyal. Vadivelu, his ability to bring down the house is legendery and the Villu team has said that the comedy track in the film is something special.
Looks like the movie has all the elements that it takes in the making of a festival hit. The fun, the style, the excitement, the pulsating songs and racy action. This one needs to be a hit, more than anyone Ayngaran requires a big success after a string of failures Go check out Villu in theaters and celebrate Pongal in style. As Vijay says in the trailer 'Watch me in action'.
