    Vivegam [2017 : Tamil : Action : 2h30m]

    A film by Siva & Team

    Banner : Sathya Jyothi Films

    Starring : Kajal Aggarwal, Akshara Haasan, Vivek Oberoi, Ajith Kumar



    Vivegam is a collage of time based events. The film projects itself as an anthology, a sum of distinct missions, to construct one block of narrative. The strategy of narration concentrates on exposition - Introducing the Characters (AK & Team, The Wife), Rising Action (sort of secondary missions that develops the plot), Climax (Confrontation) followed by the Resolution to the story.



    Mission One : Leap of Faith

    The movie opens with a random covert operation, where Agent AK thieves a device which has the potential to trigger a massive destruction. He enters into a guarded site after placing explosive mines over the pathway to create a safe escape route. A timer constantly alarms him and AK has to kill ten more seconds without getting himself killed. Standing on top of a dry dam, AK tries to divert the enemy soldiers with a short speech. When the soldiers realize that AK does not make any sense but is trying to buy himself more time, they prepare to rain bullets on him. The friendly timer runs out and AK leaps across the dam wall above the gushing water. The Agent had noted the exact moment the water shall be diverted into the dam and had registered it in his stop watch - he had efficiently walked in and out of the enemy camp within the specific interval. AK safely falls into the pouring water and navigates to freedom.



    Mission Two : Smoking out the Rat

    The operation invites both military and intelligence units, as well as, extends itself to create an international political effect. The law enforcement searches through footage registered by the camera around the campsite. Aryan introduces himself as the Intelligence and the National Security Strategist to the officer in charge of the investigation. He presents his three team members and announces that he was a partner at work with AK. He elaborates how AK & his team tracked down the stolen device after getting tipped about a hacker who was in procession with the code to destruction. He explains how AK raced with time to locate the hacker that had landed him straight into the pit of serpents.



    Mission Three : Into the Den of Hyenas

    AK analyses the first hand data and derives that the hacker is a woman and her boyfriend was kidnapped by a deadly local gang. He walks straight into their hideout and gets the details from the gang leader. With the collected information, AK lures out the hacker from her hideout before the code switch hands.



    Mission Four : Nameless Natasha

    When AK tries to grab Natasha, the hacker who had cracked the code to trigger destruction, cleverly elopes away from AK only to be surrounded by a mercenary group who are interested in acquiring device and the code from her. AK saves her from them and Natasha accepts cooperate with AK. Together they get set to find the source of the code but eventually land straight inside the trap laid for them by a nameless organization (whose motto is 'In desturction we Rebuild'). AK meets up with his fate. He not only looses the gadget held by Natasha; he falls into the abyss of deception.



    Mission Five : Home Invasion

    Surprised by the sudden attack, AK pulls himself together to meet his wife who is carrying his child. The lonely dame, who has no clue of the whereabouts of her husband, is attacked in her home. AK pops the intruders with his sniper rounds and saves his wife and his unborn child. He is paid a visit in his hideout too, an event he was expecting to happen. After taking out his revenge, AK reaches out the brain behind the deceptive act.



    Mission Six : Nailing the Blacksmith

    AK decides that his wife in no more safe and evades her from the eagle eyes who constantly watch her. He enters the building where he once worked to extract the information about plan of destruction - the device has been activated by his nemesis after pronouncing AK as the Most Wanted International Criminal. AK enters and exits the building, but loses his wife. AK desperately searches for the Sat details by visiting every Sat facility inside a fixed perimeter, when his nemesis threatens him by giving him an option - Save or Sacrifice. Whether AK will save the population by sacrificing his wife or will he choose to look for his beloved allowing millions to die.



    Mission Seven : Enter the Hydra

    The final mission details whether AK successfully halted the device before the timer hits Zero Zero : Zero Zero. AK descends the hill of danger and places his fiery palms to stop the time itself.

    The basic theme of the film is 'People are capable of great heroism when put to test'. The character AK goes under and come up in RISE-FALL-RISE story arc.

    Director Siva uses multiplexer to connect his random missions. He brings up a terminal with multi-display and picks a random tile to start his block narration. The multiple display actually contains several past missions handled by AK, thus, Siva leaves behind a vastness from where several stories about AK can be pulled out. He juggles with the POV, but keeps AK as the prime narrator, thus confining the screen space with Ajith inside every frame (while the other characters deliver, AK is omni-present). A similar structure can he found in Shankar's Enthiran (2010), where Rajini is punctually present in every single shot. He perfectly delivers the occurrence under the ticking clock fixing the events inside the time box. Hats off Siva.

    Shaky cam that originated in the 60s is a camera work introduced by avant-garde film makers. This style was their revolt towards the particular technique practiced during the period. Such cinematographers considered their line of work as freedom. The unpopular technique known as shaky cam was adapted in few films where the camera was held in hands and the technician performed all the actions and movements along with the subject. In 1981, Sam Raimi brought a similar effect by tying up the camera and swinging it before the subject. Since then, a handful of films applied several such free flow techniques to film a sequence or two in their feature. Shakycam became popular after Green Paulgrass filmed his entire Bourne series under such unique style. A debate was launched where fans supporting the shaky cam described the picture to be intense, while the others simply boycotted it citing it as 'ad nauseam' (Latin, annoying & tiresome). With the rise of digital, the shaky cam was no more a technique, but it also became a special effect created using CGI and the shaky part is enhanced through editing methods.

    Vivegam is shot in shaky cam style, just like Bourne Supremacy (2004). Vivegam is the first full length feature from India to have used such a style for the entire film.

    To distinguish the shaky cam style with shaky cam effects in Vivegam, the camera angels - dutch and tilt - should be noted to expose the difference. The locations, both indoor and outdoor, do not facilitate the task of filming using such techniques. Hats off cinematographer Vetri / Krishnasamy. Editing is more or less "Fast cutting" in Vivegam - several consecutive shots of a brief duration lesser than or equal to 3 seconds. Such Fast Cuts are used for close ups - Ref. Shaun of the Dead. In Vivegam the images on screen are the output of shaky cam and fast cutting. Hats off editor Ruben.

    The entire movie is high on thrills. It has stylish action sequences; the one inside the traffic congestion is terrific. Ajith has moved the scale of Action Hero a notch higher in Vivegam. He walks around elegantly in fine garments and sun glasses. He emotes perfectly to the situations and his short lines are sweeter and efficiently delivered. His calmness while walking between the armed gang is lethal. There is a kind of originality in his performance, a form he had been shaping since Arrambam (2013).

    I kind of liked Akshara Hassan and the character sketch of Natasha. She carries a sort of sadness during her brief appearance. The Natasha episode does save Vivegam from drowning itself inside the chaos the film creates within. Her appearance was neat and like her father, she uses her eyes more than her lips. Hats off Akshara Hassan.



    Unfortunately, Vivegam is flawed at numerous levels. The emotions and sentiments collide with the action taking a clumsy route throughout its run time. The whole notion of the word SPY has been misunderstood and the result is evident on the screen. More attention should have been given before calling the film as 'an international spy thriller'. I get to the last part cutting down all the whines – several scenes were lifted from several places – for the instances in Natasha episode - the hacking and the chase – are picked from Watchdogs, a PS3/PS4 console game.

    Nevertheless Vivegam is a sincere effort put in place with limited knowledge. Hope Siva researches further into genre film making rather than concentrating on the pace of the film.

    Even though loaded with fabulous sequences, Vivegam lands hard on its own face. Still, Vivegam is an entertaining watch.

    Ajith Kumar's 'Vivegam' has really risen up like a Phoenix from the ashes, beaten all the odds and became a blockbuster. In a period, where success meets are conducted to prove that movie is a hit, the makers Sathya Jyoti Films, Actor Ajith Kumar, Director Siva are silently enjoying the genuine success the movie has earned.

    The 50th-day celebrations happened across the city and fans of Ajith had an early Diwali blast. Fans celebrated it as an Opening day and the social media also trended with wishes and hashtags. Incidentally, it also became a birthday gift for Akshara Haaan!

    The movie has successfully crossed all barricades and despite all odds, it became a success. 'Vivegam' is a lesson that paid trackers, critics, movie buffs can't stop the real success and the fate of the movie is sealed only by Audience!
