Vela Illai Pattadaari’ is the name, and this VIP became a blockbuster in Kollywood recently. It is known that youngster Ram’s uncle has brought remake rights of VIP that starred Danush and Amala Paul. If we look at the critical points that led to this flick’s success in Tamil, one wonder if it could repeat the same in Telugu.
In fact, VIP has no double-entendre comedy, neither extra ordinary interval bangs. It is just a travel of a well educated youth played by Danush, whose life gets a dramatic twist when his doting mother demises suddenly. There’s heroism, intensity and romance, but not like regular masala potboiler. This might look little sluggish for Telugu audiences.
Also the movie is just a solo performance of Danush throughout. His body language suits characterization and stardom helps bringing life to otherwise simple scenes. Can Ram repeat the same? Will this VIP work for him? Not until a chunk of changes happen to script and scenes, he could get a gem out of this remake.
