Veppam: The heat is on

The fact that the movie is released by Goutham Menon's Photon Kathas has created a lot of hype and expectations on it. A movie set in Chennai slum, directed by debutant Anjana, Veppam promises aplenty. With a strong technical team behind, Veppam is a movie different from the rest. Veppam Movie Review - Veppam Review – Veppam rating 


The story begins in a Chennai slum where two young boys are left lonely after their mother's death. Their drunkard father Jothi (Shimmore) leaves the house. Brought up by a noble heart, the brothers grow big in a respectable way. The elder brother Balaji (Muthukumar) takes a lot of care on his sibling Karthik (Nani). Karthik spends all his time with his friend Vishnu (Karthi) who is also brought up in the locality. There is Revathy (Nithya Menon), who loves Karthik deperately. Meanwhile Jothi ends up becoming a pimp in the area and starts to work for drug peddler Ammaji (Jennifer).

Knowing that Karthik is in love with Viji (Bindhu Madhavi) one of the girls in his business, Jothi decides to explot him. He gives him an assignment - to  ransport drugs to POndy. Karthick joins him. Coming to know that it was a plan to bump him off by Jothi, Vishnu returns to Chennai. On a the same night when he gets killed and the blame falls on his friend Karthick. The onus is now on Balaji to prove that his brother is innocent. The brothers now join hands with  ifferent plans.


It is a movie set in the backdrop of Chennai slum. It reminds one of movies like Pattiyal and Drohi a lot. Anjana has given her hard wolrk and the result is there to be seen in parts. The script is racy and the first half with some breezy moments passes off quickly. The twists and surprising turns in the story are enjoyable.


It has a very sleek cinematography by Om Prakash. He has penned a poetry through his camera. The songs by Joshua Sridhar stands out. All the seven songs including Veppam, the theme song, is worth a listen.Anthony's crispy editing adds pace to the script.


Three cheers to Muthukumar. He gives controlled emotion and with Goutham Menon dubbing for him, he sets the screen on screen on fire. Nani plays his part well while Karthi is breezy and entertaining.

Bindhu Madhavai has a limited scope while Nithya Menon hogs limelight with her character.

Box office verdict: A technically-rich movie, Veppam will be here to stay for some time.

Mark 2.5/5
