Then came the second half where the pace began to slow down.

Nevertheless, "Vettiyadu Villaiyadu" is worth watching once at least for Kamal.

It is highly predictable that jyothika would get kidnapped by the villains and thats exactly what happens.

Slow Action; No Thriller .

To use a cliché here, like the Energizer bunny it goes on and on and on; only in this case you don't want it to.

The duologue's are pretty good, and the subtle sense of humor of kamals character is enjoyable.

But this movie proved to be one of the worst movies i have ever seen.

" but falls short of logic in a few scenes and eventually gets predictable.

I've heard some friends say to me that this is a slow movie.

her sad characterization slower this movie as if it were not slow enough.

Don't compare with the real one, then this movie will be a waste of time..

After the first half, the story develops in a predictable style.

and his acting is mind blowing.

Editing keeps the movie fast paced.

I expected the psychopath through-out the initial phase of the movie (just before the 2 brothers are shown to the audience) to be a seasoned professional killer who is at ease with his deeds, which then would have bought new dimensions to Kamal Hassan's character, thus making the movie more thrilling to watch.

But still worth Watching !!!...

When a cop chases psychopaths, it's a slow one.. Nothing wrong with it.

It was really engaging.

The movie prompted me to think that this was a ill-made commerical venture film possessing neither of Kamal Hassan's ingenuity or entirety to make it an entertaining venture.

Those aerial shots of NY are really breathtaking.

Kamal Haasan's accent Kamal has this pretentious accent that nobody speaks either in India or in the US; and it isn't new either.

Then all of a sudden, Prakash Raj (who I am becoming less and less a fan of due to his banal and repetitive acting style) out of the blue, remembers an incident about the suspects and these guys indeed turn out to be the villains at the end.

Thus, second half becomes very predictable.

Instead the character of the serial killers could have been developed through the investigation of cop, thus, keeping the audience more on the edge of seat and guessing.

The camera work is stunning, to say the least !

Most people complain that the second half of the movie really dragged.
