Dhanush as the invincible Raghuvaran steals the show as always. His dialogue delivery, expressions and body language in the mass scenes as well as the emotional ones are equally perfect. Amala Paul gets more performance scope than the first part and she has done justice to the character. Samuthirakani who was a strict and cynical father in the first part turns into an affectionate and friendly father of Raghuvaran in the second and does his part well.
Verdict: With mass moments, familial emotions, the invincible Raghuvaran and the powerfully attractive Vasundhara, 'VIP 2' entertains predominantly and engages throughout and it will definitely satisfy the audience.
Dhanush is at his easy best, and he once again makes us fall in love with the character. He effortlessly essays the role with total charm. When he performs a few Superstar gestures, it is lovable to watch onscreen.
Right from the initial minutes of the film, it takes you through many nostalgic moments and the audience is already emotionally attached to the characters from the word go.
Verdict: VIP 2 will entertain you from where it left!
How do you take a story where the villain has been vanquished and the hero emerged triumphant forward? Soundarya Rajnikanth and Dhanush attempt an answer in Velai Illa Pattadhari-2.
The other aspect where the film falls woefully short of the original, is in the songs, which lack the catchiness of Anirudh’s numbers in the earlier film. While Sean Roldan did well in Pa. Pandi, here, the music lacks the pep that this genre needs. The placement of the songs doesn’t help either. Coupled with the lack of punch in the script, this makes the film underwhelming.
