Udhayanidhi Stalin’s pick of movies have been either offbeat ones or a commercial comedy capers. This has kept him going smoothly with what he has been doing so far. But over here with Ippadai Vellum, he should have opted this with a belief that mix of humour and offbeat together would yield him good results. Ippadai Vellum is directed by Gaurav Narayanan, who earlier made movies like Thoonga Nagaram and Sigaram Thodu. The movie features Manjima Mohan, Soori, RK Suresh and Daniel Balaji in important roles.

The film traverses through a day incident, where a terrorist named Chotta Raj (Daniel Balaji) is planning for a series of bomb blasts in Chennai. Udhayanidhi Stalin is seen as an innocent IT guy who is in love with Manjima Mohan, whose brother (RK Suresh), a police officer is against their relationship. A dubbing artist (Soori) is waiting for the arrival of his pregnant wife for treatment in a day time. The entire premise of this film is about the incidents that happen in these characters’ lives in a short span of 24-48 hours.

Getting to the core of analysis, the film lacks a proper depiction of characterizations and screenplay. It keeps tasting your patience from beginning till end. It’s not a road movie nor something that will keep you tickled with funny bones. Director Gaurav Narayanan keeps narrating the story with a flimsy style. Manjima Mohan had a better start in Tamil cinema, but her movies followed by AYM are completely getting her to below average level. Soori and Udhayanidhi Stalin combination has worked out in many movies, but here it is so much limited. When you’re choosing a serious theme in the backdrops, it should be something intense, but a dim-witted humour is seen everywhere. Daniel Balaji is commendable and RK Suresh too performs with excellence.

On the musical part, D Imman gets to his best efforts with background score and cinematography is appreciable as well.

Overall, Ippadai Vellum is completely out of focus what it should have emphasized upon the basic plot.
