Ajith’s Valimai Movie Review:


Valimai Telugu Movie Review

Valimai Telugu Movie Review

Thala Ajith has been trying hard to make his splash in Telugu states. He is waiting for the big break in Telugu and he pinned many hopes on Valimai that is carrying huge expectations. H Vinoth directed the film and Boney Kapoor is the director. Telugu actor Karthikeya played the role of the lead antagonist in Valimai. Valimai is an action-packed entertainer. The film got decent screen count in AP and Telangana. Here is the complete review of Valimai:


The Visakhapatnam gets terrified because of back-to-back crimes, robberies and murders. The people will be left scared and ACP Arjun (Ajith) takes charge to bring situations back into control. He traces Naren (Karthikeya) as the mastermind behind the crimes. Valimai is all about the hunt of Arjun and his team to catch Naren. Watch the film to know about the story of Valimai.


Valimai is an action thriller and the film offers nothing much except some stylish action stunts. One will be surprised about why did Ajith accept such a script. The film is set in the backdrop of a bike racing batch who commit crimes. The action episodes are designed and present in a never seen manner and they are the highlights of the film. The bike chases are well planned and the bus chase in the second half offers a treat. Valimai has no great surprises and twists throughout.

After a decent first half, the second half loses track and offers some boring stuff. The cinematography work stands out throughout the film. The interval bang is shot well though it looks lengthy. Valimai completes on a boring and predictable note. The mother sentiment episode looks forceful and they spoil the film’s mood. The entire second half of Valimai is predictable without twists.

Ajith does his role well and the director has done enough research for his role and it is well designed. The other characters are not perfectly written and Karthikeya’s role should have been penned well. The action episodes are stylish but they missed the needed emotion. The film sounds quite lengthy because of the boring second half. The unwanted drama and sentiment thread disturbs the film’s flow completely. The editing work should have been better.

Ajith who is passionate about racing should have picked such a script. The action episodes are shot with a body double. Karthikeya’s screen presence is good but he did not get the needed powerful role. Huma Qureshi’s role was good during the start but it ends up incomplete. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music is pretty average and the background score for the action episodes is good.

Valimai is a mix of a pale plot that is laced with some extra ordinary action episodes. The film is a boring attempt with predictable episodes throughout.

Ajith Kumar is an actor who has sheer passion for his profession: Boney Kapoor


Well-known producer Boney Kapoor, who has produced actor Ajith Kumar’s upcoming film ‘Valimai’, says the actor is a modest person who has nothing but sheer passion for his profession.

Sharing details of his experience of working with Ajith Kumar, Boney Kapoor says, “He is an actor of modesty, who has mastered the discipline, has sheer passion for his profession, and has immense dedication. No wonder, he is a most-sought actor among the producers. He has been a great support in getting this project shaped up as envisaged during the pre-production phase.”

The producer also has words of praise for the film’s director H. Vinoth.

He says, “Filmmaker Vinoth’s work in ‘Valimai’ is beyond brilliance. He is a perfectionist, who will leave no stone unturned to achieve his vision, but in a producer-friendly mode. The entire crew bonded like a family that helped us complete ‘Valimai’ during this critically challenging pandemic phase.”

The movie is produced by Zee Studios and Boney Kapoor.

Boney Kapoor points out that ‘Valimai’ will mark the beginning of pan-Indian releases for the actor.

“Valimai is the beginning of a pan-India release for Ajith Kumar’s movies as we will be releasing the film in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, and Kannada. The film has emotional elements, family elements, outstanding action blocks, and amazing performances by Ajith Kumar and the other members of the cast.”

OTT platforms have quoted fancy prices to procure ‘Valimai’ for a direct premiere. However, Boney Kapoor has strictly refrained from taking this route.

Says Boney Kapoor, “As a producer, I am confident that ‘Valimai’ is a tailor-made movie catering to the pulse of the audiences. Of course, OTT platforms are opening wide markets for the movies, but a movie like ‘Valimai’ is made for the theatrical experience.”

The film is set to hit screens on February 24
