Valimai Movie Details

Valimai is a 2022 Indian Tamil-language action thriller film written and directed by H. Vinoth, and produced by Boney Kapoor under Bayview Projects LLP in collaboration with Zee Studios, as co-producer and distributor. The film stars Ajith Kumar, Karthikeya, Huma Qureshi and Gurbani Judge. The film score is composed by Ghibran and the songs are composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja. The cinematography is performed by Nirav Shah and editing by Vijay Velukutty. It revolves around Arjun, a police officer, who is assigned to track down a group of outlaw bikers following their involvement in heinous crimes.

Valimai Movie Review

Valimai by H Vinoth begins with a sequence of chain-snatching episodes and smuggling by masked individuals on bikes in Chennai. The populace is outraged at the cops, who are stupid. The police chief (Selva) expresses his desire for a super officer in an internal monologue. The scene shifts to Madurai, where a temple procession is taking place. The film’s protagonist, ACP Arjun (Ajith Kumar), is then presented, and his introduction is intercut with scenes from the parade. We witness this persona rising from the depths like a God raised high. In a nutshell, a hero-introduction sequence to remember.

Given his star’s popularity, we expect Vinoth to forego the obligatory fan service and finally produce the picture he’s always wanted to make. And it appears to be so for a time when Arjun is assigned to Chennai and begins investigating a suicide case that appears to be linked to the previous chain-snatching and drug-smuggling crimes. The filmmaker throws his research at us, like he did in his previous cop picture, the unrelenting Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, and while the detailing appears great, there is a sense of déjà vu as most of it is what we have seen in films like Metro, Chakra, and Marainthirunthu Parkkum Marmam Enna. And we get sentimentality when he persists on showing us the victims’ destiny, which feels needless.

Even as Arjun begins to pursue the leads, the gang’s mastermind (Kartikeya Gummakonda) realizes that the cop is on to him, and the situation devolves into a violent cat-and-mouse game in which Arjun’s family becomes pawns. Can Arjun save his family as well as the city from this heinous criminal?
Valimai, a slightly intriguing but overlong action film that conceals its simple script with extravagant action set-pieces, is a clash of stunts and sentiment. We keep getting the impression that Vinoth is struggling to strike a balance between crafting a gritty action film and satisfying the expectations of a star vehicle, with message, sentiment, and’mass’ moments. Despite the fact that the tale has the potential to ground the action scenes in emotion, he is willing to treat them as stand-alone set-pieces.

This approach is seen in the film’s cursory treatment of its secondary characters and their interaction with Arjun. They are mostly one-note — loving mother (Sumithra), alcoholic brother (Achyuth Kumar), supporting colleague (Huma Qureshi) — or caricatures — corrupt policeman (GM Sundar and Dinesh Prabhakar), tattoo-sporting, Goth-like villain’s lover (Bani J). The arc of a depressed brother (Raj Ayyappan) who goes rogue, which drives the plot in the second half, isn’t effectively created. We’re looking for something unusual, like Huma’s character, who isn’t a romantic interest. But even this character had one badass moment before being demoted to a sidekick. This is why, when we are not in the thick of an action moment, the picture feels less powerful. The plot begins to feel as if it was designed primarily to provide some reprieve between the stunt scenes. It’s no surprise that some scenarios, such as those inside a police conference room, appear unprofessional.

Vinoth tries to compensate with the stunts, which are largely big-screen spectacles that are expertly staged (Dhilip Subbarayan is the stunt choreographer) and are unquestionably the film’s highlight. A bike chase in the first half and a chase involving a bus, a truck, and many motorcyclists in the second half are both thrilling. They can only do so much, and we wish the director had put just as much effort into the other moments.

Valimai is ultimately a war between good and evil. There are obvious parallels to Batman. Arjun, like that masked superhero, does not believe in killing criminals to eradicate crime. We frequently see him clothed in black, with his face disguised beneath a helmet, especially while he is fighting the evil guys. He, too, is up against an anarchist who rejects society. And at one point, he is forced to choose between protecting his loved ones and saving the lives of the general population.

And Ajith performs this part with the zeal of a superhero. The other characters, too, treat him as though he’s one of them. With his star power, the actor provides believability to the stunt scenes while also attempting to elevate the other parts. There are occasions when it works (such as when he has to break someone’s arm in prison) and times when it doesn’t (the monologue in the climax). But there’s no disputing that it’s his presence that holds the film’s two clashing tones together.
