The family-friendly film tells the story of a father who eventually selects one of his three sons to take over the family business, but what happens afterwards and how it all plays out is what makes the tale.

Although the tale is extremely basic in the sense that a family is dispersed but eventually comes together in times of distress, the kind of stretch that it feels is intolerable for the majority of the audience.


While Vamshi Paidipally doesn’t provide anything novel in his production of this amusement, it does adhere to all the clichés of a South Indian movie. Since it was intended for the general public and Thalapathy devotees, the work was essentially well done.

The film runs for more than 170 minutes, but not a single minute of that length is justified. There are numerous fight scenes, which are again done in a conventional way. However, everything else, needed to slight down and be toned down by at least 3 levels.

Vijay Thalapathy complies with the expectations placed on him and performs as required. He does the duties that are expected of him because he is a superstar, and he does an excellent job at them. Even in the dub, his comic timing is spot-on for virtually the whole duration of the movie.

Rashmika hardly makes an appearance and feels like one of those trophy actresses. Even with the little resources she has, her character is poorly developed, making it more difficult for her to perform her job effectively.

Prakash Raj is incredible, and despite once again playing the villain, he really kills it. On-screen parents Jayasudha and R Sarathkumar, as well as Vijay’s on-screen brothers Srikanth and Shaam, all turned in respectable performances.

The songs are understandable and appropriate in their original language, so the music is perhaps fine. However, there are a few too many songs in the film, which only serves to irritate viewers by having them dance completely out of context every 30 minutes. Within the first 10 minutes, the movie begins with music, which is distracting. The songs lose all of their appeal when they are dubbed into a language, yet some of them do sound good in Tamil.

RATING – Three out of five stars.

There is no doubt that the film featured many humorous and touching moments, but those alone are insufficient.

Varisu was released in theaters worldwide on 11 January 2023. It is directed by Vamshi Paidipally. It is produced jointly by Dil Raju and Sirish under Sri Venkateswara Creations and PVP Cinema.

The movie stars Thalapathy Vijay, Rashmika Mandanna, and Shaam in the lead roles, along with Yogi Babu, Sarathkumar, Prabhu, Prakash Raj, and many others in supporting roles. March 2023 has officially been disclosed as the Varisu release date on Amazon Prime.
