After a long time Thala Ajith is back with a rural mass entertainer and this time it is directed by Siva of Siruthai fame. Veeram is said to be about a man who believes in his virtues and consider family is more important than his life.
Tamannaah is playing Ajith’s love interest and it is said that her character is the very strong and in fact it helps the movie’s flow. Santhanam is playing the comic relief and his combination with Siruthai Siva was a big hit.
Vinayagam (Ajith) and his four brothers Vidharth, Bala, Munish and Suhail Chandok, are the enforcers of their village. They have a unique way of dealing with wrongdoers. They first feast them to a sumptuous meal and then break their bones. When asked why they follow this style, their unanimous answer is that the baddies need the strength to bear the brunt of their anger. Vinayagam is not interested in marriage as he feels that he will be forced to change after marriage, as will the girl and that he doesn’t want it. The big bad guy of the village is Pradeep Rawat, who is the prime target of the enforcers. However, the crude ways of Vinayagam and his brothers often land them on the wrong side of justice and it is upto advocate Pichai (Santhanam) to bail them out of these tough corners. Kopperundevi (Tamannaah) is a painter of religious idols, who restores the beauty of temple idols. Vinayagam’s brothers seek her out and bring her to renovate a temple near their house. But why?
After seeing a special incident, the ever resolute Vinayagam is taken in by Kopperundevi’s consideration and begins falling for her. However, her father Nassar is a Gandhian by principle and abhors violence to the core. Will he accept the vigilante Vinayagam as his son-in-law? Meanwhile, what does Pradeep Rawat have planned to take down the 5 brothers who continually poke their noses into his matters? Will Nassar ever give his daughter’s hand in marriage to a man who settles things by violence? What does Thambi Ramaiah do to make things take a turn? What does the arrival of a lot of women folk into Vinayagam’s household herald for the family? Catch Veeram on the big screens to know!
