Directed by Nelson, this action drama required a good deal far more depth in its screenplay
Comedy as a style has gone through a sea transform in Tamil cinema. A couple of decades in the past, the comic, normally the hero’s ideal friend, appeared in scenes that were inserted involving music and motion sequences, hence offering a ton of fodder to Tamil comedy Tv set channels. That ‘separate comedy’ keep track of is a detail of the previous now, since the entry of new-age directors. Nelson, just one of them, has been a pioneer in pushing comedy to the forefront in vital sequences, irrespective of the mood of the scene. This was evident — and labored to a large extent — in Kolamavu Kokila and Medical professional.
This trope fails him in Beast, Vijay’s most up-to-date movie, functioning in theatres. Vijay is forged as Veera Raghavan, a Uncooked agent who can dodge a hundred bullets and still come out unscathed. The to start with couple of minutes of the film showcase him on the Indian border, wherever he does one thing that he ends up regretting. We can come to feel the why — or the psychological heft — in this scene.
But that, sad to say, goes lacking in the relaxation of the film. You also never really feel the jitters that ought to be existing in a tense condition like this. Somewhere in the hullabaloo of a Chennai mall, which is held hostage by a team of terrorists, both equally emotion and logic, to a massive extent, go for a toss.
Can Veera Raghavan help you save these innocent civilians? Why have the terrorists captured a Chennai mall?
Cast: Vijay, Pooja Hegde, Selvaraghavan, VTV Ganesh, Yogi Babu
Storyline: An ex Uncooked agent has to preserve hostages held by terrorists in a mall
Beast as a subject matter — a hostage problem in a mall, and a hero prepared to help save them — is correct up Nelson’s alley, going by his previous report. The conversation between the people may well have produced for some rib-tickling scenes, but sad to say, it is only VTV Ganesh’s occasional funny a person-liners that we are still left with. Vijay’s interaction with Selvaraghavan, taking part in the mediator involving the Authorities and the terrorists, seems a whole lot far more casual. The romance with Pooja Hegde and its total set-up could have been absolutely averted, and it however wouldn’t have created significantly of a variation.

By star-worshipping the hero and showcasing numerous gradual-movement sequences and hefty-responsibility action scenes, Nelson falls into a lure that he cautiously avoided in his previous Medical professional. Below way too, considerably like Sivakarthikeyan in the past outing, Vijay is aloof and expression-significantly less. But unlike that movie, he prefers to use additional brawn than mind… which is among the the big problems of Beast.
The producing is a major letdown, specially in the second 50 % soon after the hostage scenario will get less than regulate, and the absence of a robust villain to problem the guide sticks out sorely. Beast arrives throughout as a very rushed position, when the director and crew set out to make a film in a confined time frame, therefore functioning out of concepts. There is Anirudh’s music, with the ‘Jolly O Gymkhana’ music actively playing for the duration of the closing credits, and some VTV Ganesh gags if you truly care, but Beast dishes out quite little else.
