However, right from the opening scene, everything seems to be dramatic and unrealistic, which doesn’t help the audience to connect with the storyline. The original version of the film, Attarintiki Daredi, was much-talked about for the comedy sequences and Pawan Kalyan’s mass appeal. In VRV, though STR steals the show, the portions involving comedians like Robo Shankar and VTV Ganesh fall flat and out of syllabus. One of the reasons, why VRV comes across as a disappointment is that most of the emotional scenes in the film, for which the audience are suppose to shed tears, end up with laughter.
Raghunandan (Nasser), a multi-millionaire in Spain, wishes to spend his rest of life with his estranged daughter Nandhini (Ramya Krishnan) and her family. He asks his grandson Aadhi (STR) to help him fulfill the dream before he leaves the world. Within a few minutes, the audience are taken back in time to explain what went wrong between the two families. Nandhini marries Prabhu, a small-time lawyer, against his father’s wish. Raghunandan gets upset and shoots Prabhu with his pistol, when the couple visited his home decades ago. To realise his grandfather’s dream, Aadhi travels all the way to Chennai and joins Nandhini’s family as a car driver. What we are going to witness for the next two hours, is nothing but mindless romantic sequences involving STR and his aunt’s two daughters — Priya (Catherine Tresa) and Maya (Megha Akash).
Though Sundar C has succeeded in maintaining the tempo and the energy level of his starcast throughout the film, his writing is a huge letdown. In one scene, we get to see Catherine Tresa falling for STR, and in another scene, the audience are told that Mahat is her boyfriend. Though Megha Akash looks cute and grabs all eyeballs, the love sequences between STR and her is not convincing. Especially a couple of songs featuring the two in the second half doesn’t fit in, and could have been left on the editing table. However, STR’s emotionally charged performance in the climax sequence is something that will create an impact with the audience. Yogi Babu, who makes an appearance in the latter part of the film, manages to evoke laughter and hits the bulls-eye. Radha Ravi as the villain is more of a caricature and less in character and comes only for a couple of scenes.
