N Lingusamy has adapted a tried and test formula for his latest movie Vettai. The director, in his usual way, has blended all the elements that make a movie entertaining. In fact, he takes to the era of 80s-90s film, where good having the last laugh against the evil. The filmmaker has also ensured to bring out the best from his actors – Aarya, Madhavan, Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul.

We have seen many movies before, which shows an elder sibling bailing out his younger one from troubles but in Vettai it is vice-versa. The introduction to the characters begin with the early days of Tirumurthi (Madhavan) and Gurumurthi (Aarya), where the former gets beaten-up by his acquaintance while flying a kite. In return, Tirumurthi, who leaves the place crying, makes his junior to seek revenge .

Having given enough hints about the nature of the siblings, the story then moves forward when Tirumurthi, by chance or may be by force, turns a cop. Lacking courage and strength, he manages to face the hurdles with the help of his brother. Being a kind of body double to his elder sibling, Guru successfully makes baddies Annachi (Ashutosh Rana) trembling in fear.
