Valiyavan is a youthful romantic film, a family drama, a sports film and a revenge film.

Director M.Saravanan always finds a good story. His lines are simple, connect well with the people and he sticks to the basic day to day emotions. Valiyavan is no different. It has a good story and has love and anger as its core theme. Subhiksha stops Vinod at a public place and declares that she is in love with him.

Then, she vanishes from that spot leaving him to search for her in vain for days. Finally, she meets him and tells that she was just playing a prank. But Vinod, who has fallen for her, keeps chasing her and so, she tells him that she will agree to be his lover if he can beat Ashwin.

This Ashwin is an international boxer, a silver medalist at the Olympics, while Vinod is barely familiar with the sport. Why Subhiksha asks Vinod to beat the boxer is the only secreat, and you have to watch it on big screens, whether Vinod beat the boxer or not.

The supporting characters Bala Saravanan, Azhagam Perumal and Anupama Kumar marks for their very natural performances. Director Saravanan has a good pair of eyes for wiry villains and newcomer Aaran Chowdhary. The father-son drama between Vinod and Raghu is good. Jai plays a role that he has explored well - that of an innocent, truthful and a romantic wannabe.

Cinematographer Dinesh Krishnan’s softness in the visuals involving Andrea and the ruggedness in the action sequences are evident and a treat to the visual senses. Composer Imman delivers usual songs, his background scores elevate particularly Jai’s performance, in terms of its emotional intensity. The electronics in the climax is a killer!

Valiyavan is a youthful romantic film, a family drama, a sports film and a revenge film.
