Prakashraj and Lakshmi Rai in Vellithirai
The movie is about the film industry and the dark side (i would rather say tough side) of the industry. Prakashraj aspires to become a hero and Prithviraj aspires to become a director. Prakashraj deceives Prithviraj by using his script and becoming a successful hero. Prithviraj struggles and then succeeds as a director using Prakashraj. Gopika is a heroine in the industry, loves prithvi, marries him and leaves him. In short, she helps increase the length of the movie.
A slow moving movie with a good story. Dialogues have been well written, with the director expressing his own views through Prithviraj at multiple occassions. Prakashraj has yet again proved to be a great actor. His role is the heart of movie, I doubt anybody else would have fitted in the role as well as Prakashraj did. Climax is interesting and intelligent.
Personal comment: Worth watching once.
