Vyapari is the dubbed version of the Tamil movie Vyabari, there is no tagline for this film but the hero SJ Suryah keeps reminding his family and the audiences that he is a 100% businessman. The film has been released here after two years and the director of the upcoming Pawan Kalyan film 'Puli' intends to catch and cash on the craze as he happens to be the hero of this film. The film is being publicized as the first film on cloning in India and director Shakti Chidambaram treats science as a child's play and shows the cloning scenes on just 3 occasions.
And how? Nasser is a scientist and he removes a cell from Surya's body and does something strange like putting it in a transparent tube like object and a machine comes covering it. After a while a human is born, he walks like a robot, eats leaves and repeats dialogues like a parrot to bring credibility and very quickly with human affection brings a sea change in Suryah's family.
The film is a big drag and atleast 15 minutes of it can be trimmed. The song that has the mother sentiment and is supposed to be a highlight failed to keep the audiences to their seats. One doesn't understand why Shakeela made a guest appearance. It is essentially a story of a man who gives utmost importance to his business and ignores his family. When things are turning worse and he can't balance his life, thinks of having a clone and approaches scientist Nasser.
From day one it's problems galore with the clone upsets his plan. The finale is sentimental, with Surya's mother Seetha dying and the clone lighting the pyre. A film that could have ended long before stretches with a fight, the baddie returning and the retribution scene. Tamannah plays an MBA student who approaches him for an interview, it's silly to see an educated women putting with all the torture of a man who is insanely devoted to money. Suryah acts like a man who has lost his balance, screams and overacts. Even the clone gets irritating at times.
Namitha has a song devoted to her and she plays a model who is trapped by her boyfriend, the villain. The businessman's role hardly suits Suryah, he looks deglamorised and hardly behaves like a businessman who wants to make a rupee more than Bill Gates.
The film is loud, jarring, editing is bad, songs are not worth remembering. This could be designed for the C section audiences but to say that once more, could be hurting their sensibilities too.
Warning: This film should be strictly avoided by research students!
