Vanmam is an usual masala flick which has a tale of friendship and rivalry. It has Vijay Sethupathi, Kreshna and Sunaina in lead roles who have done justice in portraying their characters.
Vanmam's big positive is its performances by all the actors including the supporting actors who have done an excellent job in bringing out the actual emotions of each and every characters. Vijay Sethupathi is good as always and Kreshna too has done a decent job.
Overall Vanmam is a good tale of friendship, revenge and family values which could've been told in a much more interesting manner with better screenplay and editing.
