Its time for police story and this time featuring Nandha in khakhi. Vellore Mavattam, directed by R N R Manohar of Masilamani fame, has Nandha playing a tough cop with Poorna playing his heroine.
Manohar has set the whole movie in and around the Vellore district, but at many places reminds one of films like Saamy and Khakha Khakha.
Nandha, who is seen as one of the romantic heroes of Tamil cinema, has chosen to go the action way with Vellore Mavattam.
Muthukumaran (Nandha), is the son of a poor old man (G M Kumar) in a village. Encouraged by his father, he studies well and gets selected for Indian Police Service.
He is trained at National Police Academy and gets appointed as Additional Superintendent of Police in Vellore district. He comes with a mission to set all things right in Vellore.
But he is forced to wage a battle with Gurumurthy (Azhagam Perumal) who is the embodiment of evil and corruption. Its now a cat and mouse game and who emerges on top forms the crux.
Nandha is impressive. As an angry police officer, he is impressive,
He is good in stunt sequences Poorna plays a bubbly girl. She has a couple of songs and disappears. Santhanam laughter with his one-liners. But double-meaning dialogues is something which he could have avoided. Azhagam Perumal as villain is apt for the role, while G M Kumar, Sreeman, and Mayilsamy form part of the cast.
Sundar C Babu's music is peppy. Produced by AGS Entertainment, Vellore Mavattam is good in parts.
