Hot and sexy actress Archana is the heroine in the movie “Vegam”.Actor-turned-politician SVe Shekher’s Son Ashwin Shekher makes his debut as hero in “Vegam”, directed by K R Udayashankar. A suspense thriller, the movie has enough action and sentiment loaded in the right mix.
Good in stunt and dance sequences, Ashwin has come out with a bold performance considering the fact that this is his maiden attempt on big screen.However he has to show improvement in emoting and body language. Giving able company to Ashwin are Prabhu, Kushboo and Sriman.Shekher plays a cameo, who tickles the funny bone in the audience.
The movie revolves around Ashwin, who runs an event management company. He comes to Malaysia to meet his lover Archana.He comes across a telephone call from a woman, (Kushboo) who cries out for help. She is locked up in a place by a gang led by a suspended cop played by actor Sriman. Unable to cut the telephone line, Ashwin sets in search of the woman in a bid to rescue her. How he goes about accomplishing the task forms the rest.
Screenplay by Shekher is racy. Rajesh Vaidhy’s catchy musical score does work out well. Especially the soft melody “Kalabha Mayilae” still lingers in our hearts. Suresh Urs’ editing and K S Selvaraj’s cinematography have played their part well.
The film has been inspired from a Hollywood flick called Cellular. The title evinces some kind of expectation that the film could be a fast paced one but it disappoints appallingly. Leave alone the speed of a rocket, the film does not even move at a cyclist’s speed. The only solace happens to be S Ve Shekar’s dialogues which provide some comic relief.
Prabhu and Kushboo are there but one is not able to envision their presence in the film. Prabhu dons the role of a police officer and needless to say he has not been utilized at all. Suresh Urs’s editing and K S Selvaraj’s camera offer some kind of succor. Nothing much to speak about Rajesh Vaidhya’s music.
