Vil Ambu features a story where the lead characters never meet. However, their paths invariably cross, and the plot of Vil Ambu explores this in a thrilling action-drama. Directed by Ramesh Subramaniam, Vil Ambu boasts of some action-filled sequences that are sure to grip you.
The first half of the film introduces us to the lead characters, and their transition from childhood to adulthood. While Karthi (Shree) is a petty thief, who grows up in slums, Arul (Harish Kalyan) is an ambitious photographer, who is often ridiculed by his authoritarian father. The initial portions of the film show the love stories of the respective characters. This is followed by duet numbers, mushy romantic sequences as well. Thanks to Yogi Babu‘s comic sequences, the first half is also filled with humor. And this goes well with the film as well. However, the real thrill of the film is revealed in the second-half. The plot quickly takes on a serious issue, where the leads find themselves trapped in different situations. The stories intertwine towards the final portions of the film, and this results in some nail-biting sequences. However, the film fizzles out gradually. The story moves without any direction, and eventually drags.
Just when you begin to predict the next set of sequences, the film manages to surprise you, and this is the biggest plus of this film. It isn’t as predictable as it seems. Another positive element of the film is its well-choreographed action sequences that add the element of thrill in this action-packed entertainer.
The biggest strength of the film are its leads. The casting is perfect, and it seems like these young actors are here to prove their mettle. Harish and Shree do a perfect job. Samskruthy Shenoy and Chandini also do a good job.
If you like watching action-thrillers, then Vil Ambu is for you. Shree and Harish will impress you with their performances.
