Visaranai, a must watch uniquely treated crime thriller that represents true cinema.

The other major highlight of Visaranai is the screenplay, which looks brisk as a bee. Though it is a film that moves you, it is also hard hitting and carries an airtight writing and that is why Visaranai is special. Without any commercial gimmicks the film manages to be a mainstream product that kee...

A Rare gem which you will treasure in your mind for a long time

Vetrimaaran has partly adapted the autobiographical novel Lock up by real life custody victim Chandra Kumar and cleverly interwoven a few recent political deaths and police encounters to give a well crafted film that deserves the highest praise. 'Visaranai' has only two sequences which have simila...

A masterpiece from Vetrimaaran that showcases only harsh realities and the truth.

The story and content is the hero of Visaranai. It is a very real story sans any dreamy commercial elements.

In Vetrimaaran's own words, this movie is a depiction of a "harsh reality that we don't want to believe." Go watch it.

he movie isn't preachy or never tries to debate on anyone, but it tries its best to portray that such incidents happen everywhere and affect the naive. There are always two sides to the coin and being a inspiration from a first-hand account story, this movie focuses entirely on the flip side of the 'system'.

    Visaranai explored the dark with the light of Emotions. Totally paralleled to reality held no place for any commercial mite, Visaranai thrilled with harsh and impactful truths and injustices done by social structures that can't be blamed completely. The Director and the Writer delivered an amazing Product that spoke on the victims' behalf everywhere. The Performances were perfectly live and astounding turning the portrayal into more of a reality. 
    4 stars for the unyielding Direction and jaw-dropping Act igniting a fuelling Screenplay. 
    Waiting for the Uncut Version...

    After Long Time one fine n politics in dep n bold attempt movie released in Tamil Cinema with out any pressure in releasing time.
    It is not usual story like entertainment film. It is an unrevealed truth before some year's back happened n Dir.Vettrimaran made it has documentary type film with out any cinema essential content. But anyways very good n hard wrk seen in each scenes n done a good wrk.
    All the actor's in d film gvn their best wrk till date. Music by G.V.P in okish style .. Minus is slow pace screenplay and .. Even though making as true story Dir.Vettrimaran might include his thoughts too in this film bt he didn't done it.. He done his part by focused with Novel "Lock Up" to reveal in silver screen with out any minor changes so that it turned as Documentary type film..
    Highlight: Some department ppl can do anything to save themselves n for their earnings .. Undigested Truth Broken By Novel Writter and Dir.Vettrimaran..
    Verdict: An Bold Attempt Film In Tamil Cinema with out any conviction for cinema style .. Well done for unrevealed d truth in Silver Screen .. One Time Watchable..
    Rating: 3/5
