Vaishali Review – Vyshali Movie Review – Vaishali Rating, Telugu Movie Review: Shankar has produced few gems on his S pictures banner in Tamil. Premisthe is one of those movies which was dubbed in Telugu and went on to become a super hit. Vaishali is the Telugu dubbed version of Eeram (Dampness) which was a critically acclaimed commercial hit in Tamil. Arivazhagan is the director of this movie. Dil Raju bought the Tamil dubbing rights of this movie and Vaishali is out in theatres from today. Here is the review…


Vaishali (Sindhu Menon) commits suicide in her flat by drowning herself in a bath tub. This case will be taken up by ACP Vasudev aka Vasu (Adi), who feels that this cannot be a suicide. Vaishali and Vasu were ex lovers and the reasons for Vaishali killing herself doesn’t seem believable to him. He starts to dig deep into the case and meanwhile more killings take place in the same apartment. Vasu comes to know about a shocking truth about who the murderer is. You have to watch the movie to know who it is.


As a story Vaishali is clichéd and mediocre one. But the treatment and screenplay makes it worth a watch. It falls under horror/thriller genre with more dose of drama. As the director himself claims in a scene that this story is about a modern Seetha who proves her chastity, Vaishali is loosely based upon an incident in Ramayana.

Also there are many Hollywood thriller films which come to viewer’s mind while watching it. The killing pattern reminds you of Final Destination and few eerie scenes involving water looks like they were straight out of ‘Dark Water’.

Leaving those aside, Vaishali is an absolute cracker of a ride especially in the first half. It is breathtaking and engaging one hour in which the director cleverly interlaced the present and past. Although it might be quite confusing for masses, people with a little extra IQ will appreciate director’s efforts.

But the flashback part is dragging and it is filled with overdose of drama which is uncalled for. That part is prolonged too much and spoiled the fun of a thriller. That is so predictable to be dealt in detail. Also the climax looks forced and out of place.

We can ignore minor glitches in the movie as it is a well made movie which is definitely worth the ticket.


Aadi who made his debut with Oka Vichitram has settled down in Tamil cinema. He is good and fits the role of a cop perfectly. Sindhu Menon is good. Her eyes do all the talking. Nandha as Vaishali’s husband is good. Srinath and Saranya Mohan did their part well. All others helped for the story to proceed further.


Sashank Vennelakanti did a god job with the dialogue. Thaman’s background score is fine and his songs gelled well with the proceedings. Cinematography by Manoj Paramahamsa is the major asset. The rain and scenes involving water are shown in aesthetic fashion. Kishore editing is brilliant in first half and could’ve been sharper in the second half.

Arivazhagan is brilliant with the direction part. He is also superb in mixing crime and romantic threads in a wonderful way. Had he taken more care on the latter half where the film drags for almost fifteen minutes, Vaishali might have ended up as a complete film. Nevertheless he is here to stay and we can expect more such good stuff from him.
Plus Points:

- First half
- Thrilling elements
- Cinematography
- Background score

Minus points:

- Dragging flashback in second half
- Poor climax

Final Word: Vaishali – Watch it if you are looking for some ‘Vaividhyam’ in movies!

Box office predictions:

Vaishali managed to get a reasonable turn out for its first morning show. It has chances to do well in A centers if promoted well.
