VIP 2 movie review : Dhanush as an unemployed graduate works wonderfully with Kajol’s menace
Written by Shubham Dwivedi

VIP 2 is a Tamil film staring Dhanush in the titular role. Dhanush released VIP under his Wunderbar films in 2014. Film instantly achieved a cult status being a sensible issue based entertainer. Velaiilla Pattadhari was written and directed by Velraj, who gave an extremely new flavor of a genre to Tamil audience. VIP was appreciated by audience and critics hence it did incredible box office collection. With in the narrative of VIP there lies a potential for sequel because no producer wants to let go of an in-demand intellectual property. 3 years later Dhanush brought back what’s now known as VIP 2 with some serious changes in the key technicians.

Story and dialogues of VIP 2 are written by Dhanush himself while screenplay is hemmed by Soundarya Rajnikanth. For a second film Soundarya Rajnikanth has taken a highly anticipated film to direct. Her first film Kochadaiyaan was a disaster at the box office despite the fact that it had Rajnikanth and because of the fact that Rajnikanth was animated, audience really wants Rajnikanth in flesh and blood. VIP 2 delivered as expected, film works very well at all the levels. VIP is essentially a film which is driven by story, plot and Dhanush managed to get it right.

There were some skeptical people about Dhanush making VIP without the soul of the film Velraj and forcing himself into the project being the producer. Despite of the negativity Dhanush and Soundarya have got the heart of unemployed graduate at the right place. Direction of the film is fantastic with a little more grandeur than last time. Kajol was surprisingly very good in the film, she got the language and phonetics of Tamil right at the swagger. She plays the key Antagonist in the film who is exactly opposite of everything Raghuvaran represents be it morals, ethics or honesty. On the whole VIP 2 is a good one time watch and probably a second time as well
