Vaathiyar is a typical Arjun movie - with good doses of action, romance and comedy, this makes for a Tamil "masala" entertainer. He looks at his best in dance and stunt sequence yet he is in 40s. Arjun knows what he is capable of and what his fans expectations are. He has tried to fulfill his fans expectations.
Another good-over-evil, hero-beats-up-bad-guys film. Vaathiyar hows Durai (Arjun) as the man taking revenge against a group of gangsters, who were responsible for an incident in which the lives of many school children were lost.
Though this movie looks like his old movie Saathu, Vaathiyar keeps up a decent momentum.
