With each film, S.J.Suryah has been trying to polish his acting skills further. Vyapari is another good example of his effort to change his playboy image. In this film, he has played the role of an entrepreneur who is eager to overtake even Bill Gates even though if it is by just one rupee!
In the company of director Sakthi Chidambaram, Suryah has come up trumps essaying his role with ease. Giving him able company are the lead ladies - Tamanna, Malavika and Namitha.Sakthi Chidambaram has used the concept of cloning really well to suit the commercial needs of the movie. Sakthi has narrated the tale of a motherly sentiment laced with all commercial elements.
The story revolves around Suryaprakash (Suryah), a successful businessman, who wants to become the richest man in the world. Admired by the likes of Dhirubai Ambani and Bill Gates, Suryaprakash spends his time and energy to achieve his dreams. He is forced to spend all his time looking after over 300 business institutions (!) that he runs without even bothering about his family.He comes across Savithiri (Tamanna), a journalist, who wants to write an article about him. Then there is a model Malavika and an air hostess Namitha. All of them admire Suryaprakash. A sequence of events lead to Suryaprakash marrying Savithri.
Suryaprakash finds it difficult to balance his life between the business and his family. He then comes up with a novel idea. He decides to get his own clone made, and seeks the help of a scientist Stephen Raj ( Nasser). His clone is made and how it brings about a change in his life and attitude forms the crux of the movie.
Deva has come up with loud music.It is a typical Suryah in the movie who speaks at the top of his voice. He should have done something to soften it. At the same time, one should acknowledge his commendable effort in trying to establish himself as a full- fledged hero. It is indeed a welcome change, and Surya should keep up the good work in future also. All the three heroines have been handled well by the director. Among the three, Tamanna has a greater scope for action.
Sanjith, in the villain role has done his part well. Among others, Sita as Suryah's mother is impressive and her sentimental scenes go down well with the audience.
Two songs from Deva's score have pleased the audiences. The camera work of M.V.Panneer Selvam has imparted a new colour to the film.
Vyapari - clearly a money- making movie!
