Updated on:

Vaathi/Sir is a movie about a young teacher named Balamurugan/Bala Gangadar Thilak who fights against corrupt educational institutions that prioritize profit over education. The movie stars Dhanush and Samyuktha and received positive reviews. It will be released in Tamil and Telugu languages on 17 February 2023. Here is the Vaathi/Sir movie review from reliable sources.

Vaathi/Sir Movie Review

Vaathi is a movie about a man named Bala who starts as an assistant math teacher in a government school that is struggling due to educational privatization. He is left with no support from parents or administration, but he manages to transform the lives of underprivileged students through education despite all challenges. The movie follows the classic template of a social reformer’s fall and rise, but it is handled well by director Venky Atluri. Dhanush’s performance is effortless, and the chemistry between him and Samyuktha Menon works well. There are a few unnecessary comedy sequences in the first half, and the conflicts between good and evil could have been introduced earlier. The movie is technically sound, and GV Prakash’s music adds value to the film.

Plus point of Vaathi/Sir Movie

The director, Venky Atluri, is confident that the film will be successful at the box office. He has already shown the main story through the promos. The main actor, Dhanush, plays a junior lecturer who believes in free education and his emotional scenes with the students are very good. Samyuktha, who plays Meenakshi, also acts well. The music by GV Prakash Kumar helps to create emotional scenes.

Minus point of Vaathi/Sir Movie

The director had already shown the story in the previews. He did a good job of making the first half interesting, but the second half was not as good. The love story between the main characters was not well done because the movie was mostly about education and the main character’s relationship with the students. The director should have focused more on the main plot instead of the emotional scenes. The confrontation scenes between the main character and the other actor should have been better. The ending could have been better too. Only one song was memorable.
