Ippadai Vellum is a comedy thriller romance movie starring Udhayanidhi Stalin and Manjima Mohan. The moive starts out like a traditional romantic comedy about a couple who are in love, and have the usual stress of being in a relationship. But the movie also has a villain, as is shown in the first scene of the movie, and in a single take that is part gimmick and very awesome. The movie revolves around two men falsely accused of being Terrorists and their struggle to prove the authorities wrong.
As you can see, there is a lot of going on in the plot, and some of it entirely ridiculous and incoherent. But even as the story is worn thin by the end of the movie, there are still some bright spots and scenes that should be exprienced on the big screen. The performances by the lead actors are great and the music is very good and appropriately menacing and romantic when it wants to be.
The direction, however is the best part of the movie, as Gaurav Narayanan, swoops and shrinks and does dives in the action scenes. It is one of the best directed movie of the year, and even if a weak script lets it down, it is still worth a watch.
