Like in Veeram, the pre-interval segment is a spike in Vedalam too, and Siva is in charge of the film playing to his strengths with impactful dialogues and ‘moments’ to savor.
Some of the comedy scenes (headed by the likes of Soori, Kovai Sarala, Rajendran, Balasaravanan, Swaminathan, Sivabalan) don’t work out as intended and the sentiment scenes go overboard into the melodramatic territory. The film doesn’t engage consistently as intended.
the director has also made sure to not miss out on the large family audience base by using the services of actors like Lakshmi Menon and Thambi Ramaiah. Both these actors are pillars no doubt, and up the EQ (emotional quotient) of Vedalam.
Verdict: Vedalam – Sparks do fly, but not frequently enough
