VIP is a satisfaction-guaranteed film for all Tamil movie fans (and not to mention, die hard Dhanush fans)! A heavy script, carried by Dhanush himself, relies on much of his body language and expressions – which are totally impeccable. This film profoundly explains the predicament of the unemployed which is a relatable experience amongst many graduates. The superb cinematography and catchy music truly got off my seat and wanting to dance. Dhanush keeps his fans hooked and the audience entertained throughout the movie with his charm. Die-hard fans of Dhanush (and possibly new ones) – you definitely do not want to miss this one!
” …you definitely do not want to miss this one!”
I watched this Tamil movie during the Diwali Week Movie Screening without any subtitles but it was awesome as the movie storyline moved me! Amazingly, I stayed in the theatre hall for the whole three hours!
