Ajith Kumar who is a highly respected and vauled spy agent goes by the name AK or Ajith Kumar, was once the head of the government's counter-terrorism squad. The film starts off with his former team mates, Aryan Singha (Vivek Anand Oberoi), Mike (Serge Crozon), Rachel (Amila Terzimehic) and Shwan (Arav Chowdharry), are trying to track Ajith as he is now under the most wanted list by the government and the intelligence agencies. It is soon explained through a flashback to why AK is shown as such.
In the flashback Ajith is already married to, Yazhini (Kajal Agarwal). Their relationship is absolutely dreamy as they both are obviously in love, and the couple is completely understanding of each other. Meanwhile, AK is assigned to attend an important mission to track down a genius hacker, Natasha (Akshara Haasan), who possesses the codes to launch devastating man-made earthquakes through nuclear weapons. He assembles his much looked upon team and they set aboard to catch her.
After series of powerful action blocks they catch up on Akshara who claims that she just hacked the codes as someone else ordered her to do so, and that she gave in for money. She then goes on to urge the team to believe that she feels miserable after she got to know the consequences of what she has done. At this point Ajith retrieves the codes from her, and Vivek Oberoi insists on killing her, but AK firmly denies it and takes Akshara under his protection. This sparks a shootout between him and his team, and from that moment the movie twists into an action and anger fueled revenge spree.
Vivegam is all about 'Thala' Ajith Kumar and mass, the film is filled with fights and stunts and heavy punch dialogues. Deafening whistles and cheers can be heard when every such scene was delivered by the hero. Especially when he rips of his shirt in the climax, show casing his six-packs. The audience went insane and it took long minutes for the crowd to settle down. Vivek Oberoi appears to be stylish and delivers his scenes near perfectly, but the dubbing for him was a let down. Kajal pulls her role off as a wife really well, while Akshara for whom this marks as her debut film in Kollywood does her role perfectly too. Karunakaran who plays as the translators acts as a good comic. Anirudh Ravichander has done total justice to the movie by absolutely nailing the background score and cinematography by Vetri is to point.
The movie gets too excited with all the stunts and chasing, but the direction is at times quite questionable. It's a simple story amped up to be delivered as a mass film, though it contains the necessary elements it seems to be as complicated as possible. The few minutes of making video in the end credits shows the hard work of Ajith Kumar inspires and earns him even more respect. Simply said for a die hard Thala fans and action junkies, Vivegam is a total hit.
In short, Vivegam as promised will fill you with maximum rage.
