VIP 2 movie review: Dhanush-Kajol's film is a rehashed version of VIPVIP 2 takes the story forward from where Velai Illa Pattadhaari (2014) ended. The director introduces Vasundara (Kajol Devgn) like a typical masala hero. Surprisingly, Kajol's sidekick (played by Raiza) gets more reception from the audience, thanks to Bigg Boss Tamil. Much like Velai Illa Pattadhaari, the sequel is another episode in Raghuvaran's life. Velai Illa Pattadhaari 2 Cast:Dhanush, Kajol Devgn, Amala Paul, Vivek and Samuthirakani Velai Illa Pattadhaari 2 Director: Soundarya Rajinikanth Velai Illa Pattadhaari 2 Rating: 4 Star Rating: Recommended4 Star Rating: Recommended(2/5) In several ways, VIP was a satisfying mass film. Mainly because, Raghuvaran was a simple youngster, whose world was much simpler than VIP 2. We saw him the way his mother, his girlfriend, his younger brother and father saw him. Velai Illa Pattadhaari had some really good moments that catered to Dhanush's fans and filmgoers in general. Raghuvaran's guy-next-door character was something we could connect to and he was one among hordes of underdog engineers. But Raghuvaran in VIP 2 seems to be from another mass film. Let's just say he's Raghuvaran 2. VIP 2 begins with Raghuvaran 2 getting the Engineer Of The Year Award for his slum clearance project. Anitha (Ritu Varma) collects the award on his behalf. It took two seconds to figure out that Surabhi's character has been replaced by Ritu Varma. Just like the guy sitting next to me, I wondered who now has Saranya's (Raghuvaran's mother) lungs that were donated in the first part. Vasundara, a self-made corporate tycoon asks her employee to somehow persuade Raghuvaran to join her company. Enter Raghuvaran 2 in his Mofa, carrying vegetables. It has been three years since the first part released but the characters are fresh in our memories. However, it looks the characters have undergone some serious psychological changes. A soft-spoken Shalini in VIP becomes the overly sensitive and doting wife. A genuinely caring father (played by Samuthirakani) wants to be a cool dad. And the introverted younger brother Karthik (Hrishikesh) grows a moustache. Raghuvaran himself talks too much in this one. A constant thing is a track between Azhagusundaram (Vivek) and Thangapushpam. One of the likeable parts about VIP 2 is Raghuvaran 2's scenes with Azhagusundaram, who gets some funny lines. The first half centres more on Raghuvaran 2 and his wife Shalini. They play the over sentimental, over dramatic and utterly boring husband-and-wife from a television soap. Shalini's confrontations with her drunkard husband are supposed to evoke laughter, but it gets irritable and unfunny. Each time Raghuvaran 2 complaints about marriage, his cool dad comes to rescue. In fact, in one of the scenes, he gives advice on 'how to please your wife' quoting his life examples. Thank god, this isn't American Pie! Every time he gets into trouble, Saranya Ponvannan makes a cameo appearance. Last time, Raghuvaran truly created a revolution taking on the state of engineers in Tamil Nadu. This time, not so much and the results are too ambiguous. Velai Illa Pattadhaari 2 is written by Dhanush and is shockingly ordinary film coming from someone who made a heartwarming Pa Paandi earlier this year. Velai Illa Pattadhaari 2 follows a similar story as that of VIP. The only difference is that the 'Amul Baby' here is a female. Raghuvaran 2 and Vasundara face-off over business dealings among others. Despite a weak villain in the first part, Dhanush's interactions with Amitash Pradhan were thoroughly entertaining. But the portions with Vasundara are weakly conceived. Expect perhaps the interval block, where Raghuvaran from the first part makes a cameo with Anirudh Ravichander's thumping background score. And I've never watched Kajol overacting in films as much as she does in this one. In terms of inventiveness, Dhanush has written a nice link in the climax that has something to do with the Chennai floods in 2015. For every dull moment (if there was any) in VIP, it was backed by Anirudh Ravichander's terrific background score. Sean Roldan, too, is a great composer, whose Poonthendral had Ilaiyaraaja written all over it. But the music is a big let down and the theme is reminiscent of an 80s Rajinikanth film. Have I told you that Dhanush himself unknowingly impersonates Rajinikanth more than once? With VIP 2, can we also say that some films are better left untouched...without the need to make a sequel?
