I don't normally associate Tamil cinema (or Kollywood) with blockbuster films, except that VELAYUDHAM (sometimes spelled "Velayutham") happens to be one. I'm not too familiar with this branch of Indian cinema, but I've got this sense that Vijay is one of Kollywood's biggest stars. He pretty much demonstrates why in this fun masala action thriller.

In Tamil cinema, the city of Chennai is the center of the universe and a primary target of terrorist acts. And when an investigative journalist, Barathi (Genelia D'Souza), gets caught in the crosshairs, she impulsively concocts a hero out of thin air to lend hope to a despairing people. She names her creation "Velayudham."

In the provincial village of Pavunoor, Velu (Vijay) plies his trade of milk vendor, but that's not important. What's relevant is that Velu is hailed by the community as the village lion, and maybe you can sense the mocking undertone. Velu is a mischievous young man. He adores his sister (Saranya Mohan) and will go to any length to satisfy her whim. This usually results in disaster for the poor village, because Velu tends to metamorphose into this destructive force, kinda like that Mayhem guy from those auto insurance commercials. When Velu's sister gets engaged and Velu has to go to Chennai to collect money from a chit fund for her marriage, well, all of Pavunoor breathes a sigh of relief.

When Velu's train rolls into Chennai, the film reunites with the plot proper. At the train depot, Velu inadvertently saves the passersby from an exploding motorbike, planted there by terrorists. Somewhere along the way, Velu had let drop his full name - Velayudham - and news of his heroic act spreads like wildfire.

It's funny how an idea takes on a life of its own.
