Vanamagan - Can See Once For Raviís Hard work..!


Jayam Ravi has collaborated with AL Vijay for Vanamagan. The director had approached him for many projects earlier, but nothing materialised for one or other reason. Finally, this film has brought them together. Hindi and Telugu actress Sayyeshaa is making her Tamil debut with the flick, which has Prakash Raj, Thambi Ramaiah, Varun, Vela Ramamoorthy, and Sanjay Bharathi in the supporting roles. 
Harris Jayaraj has composed the music for Vanamagan. The songs like Yemma Yea Alagamma and Pachchai Uduthiya Kaadu have impressed the listeners. The film has Tirru's cinematography and Anthony's editing.


Vaasi (Jayam Ravi) is a tribesman who lives in the forest thinking that the forest is his entire world and never cared about outside world. At one instance he comes out from his world and enters the city, where he finds out everything as a miracle and reacts like Tarzan. But when he sees Kavya (Sayyeshaa) who live in cities, he falls in love with her. He starts living in the same house as Kavya and the bond between them grow stronger and gradually he transforms to be one of them from outside. While the transformation is in progress, Prakash Raj, who is the father of Kavya doesn’t like Vaasi and wants to take Kavya back from him which Vaasi doesn’t like. How he gains her and wins over Prakash raj forms the crux of the story. 


Jaya Ravi is one of Kollywood’s finest actor who tries experimental roles. In this movie he doesn’t have any dialogues – baring few words here and there and no proper costumes; yet he shines with a different body language and expressions. Heroine Sayeesha’s debut Tamil film, she looks pretty and dances gracefully. It wouldn’t be wrong to say she carries the whole movie on her shoulder along with Ravi. 
Prakash Raj plays as antagonist role which doesn’t have much scope to emote or perform. His role has been wasted badly. Thambi Ramaiah’s stereotypic comedy scenes fails to bring laugh, At time even it irritates. Varun and Vela Ramamoorthy have done their part with no complaints. 
Music is composed by Harris Jayaraj, interestingly this is his 50th film. Songs are pretty good, but Background music is not catchy enough. ‘Yea Alagamma’ , ‘Silu Silu’ and ‘Pachchai uduthiya Kaadu’ songs are pick of the album. All the songs are visually appealing. Thanks to Thiru’s beautiful camera work. 
Though song placements are poor, choreography is too good. Especially Prabhudeva’s ‘Damn Damn song’ choreography and Brinda master’s ‘Alagamma’ song choreography . The forest tiger stunt sequence has been properly designed and well executed, Credits to Stunt Silva. Editing could have been better, flow of few scenes are abrupt. Art direction needs special mention – good work.
