Tamil Superstar ‘Thalapathy’ Vijay who has the biggest fan following in Tamil has been focusing on Telugu for the last few years. Though his contemporaries Vikram, and Surya have amassed a huge following in Telugu, Vijay started focusing on Telugu quite late. Maybe most of his movies are remakes could be one of the reasons.
He teamed up with Telugu director Vamshi Paidipally and producer Dil Raju for a family entertainer Varisu which got dubbed into Telugu as Varasudu. The Telugu version has hit the screens today. Let’s see whether Vijay can withstand the competition from Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna or not.
Rajendra (Sarathkumar) is a well-known businessman who wants to hand over his group of companies to one of his sons, Shaam and Srikanth. Apart from these two, Rajendra also has a third son Vijay Rajendra (Vijay) with whom he shares a strained relationship. Due to this reason, Vijay stays away from the family. When Rajendra is about to decide on his heir, the whole family breaks into parts. When things go haywire, Vijay takes the responsibility of holding the family together. What did he do and can be able to resolve the family issues or not is the rest of the story?
Too much Tamil flavor
On the whole, Vaarasudu is a passable family drama that has its moments. Despite the slow pace, lack of emotional connection, and a few artificial scenes, Varasudu is still a feel-good family entertainer that appeals to the family audience.
