Velai illa Pattathari
Velai illa Pattathari (English: Unemployed Graduate), popularly referred to as VIP, is a 2014 Indian Tamil-language comedy-drama film written, directed and filmed by Velraj, in his directorial debut. The film features Dhanush, Amala Paul in the lead roles, while Vivek, Saranya Ponvannan, Samuthirakani and Surabhi play supporting roles.
Raghuvaran (Dhanush) is an unemployed engineer who lives with his loving mother (Saranya), younger brother Karthik (Hrishikesh) and strict father (Samuthirakani). Raghu is an upright guy who finds it difficult to find a job which he loves and is not willing to settle for something that comes his way. He is constantly humiliated by his dad for being a loser in comparison with his younger brother a successful IT guy. The girl living next door, Shalini (Amala Paul) a medical student falls in love with him. And in a crucial moment he lets down his mother the only person who supports him, which leaves him heartbroken and devastated.
Parents Love, Fantasy, Smile, Faith, Sympathy, Hate, Courage, lovers love, Friendship & everything were there at the very appropriate moment. Very good effort by director “Velraj”. Story comes with a comedy accent & turns to the romantic when Raghuvaran found Shalini & turns in to few sad minutes which realise the parent love & turns again in to the baseline of the movie. As a Mechanical Engineer I also know, how hard to find a JOB in real world. By the way, at he end, everything goes fine with Raghuvaran & he made the peace with “Arun Subramaniom”. A Happy ending movie. 😀
