Plot

Vasu (Santhanam) and Saravanan (Arya) are best friends. When Vasu's marriage was going to be fixed with Seema (Bhanu) Saravanan wants to first interview Seema to see if she is a suitable bride for Vasu. A series of comedic incidents happens during the interview and during the marriage of Vasu and Seema, which angers and embarrasses Seema. To make matters worse Saravanan plays a prank during Vasu's marriage night which makes Vasu end up in hospital with a broken disc.

An angry Seema wants Vasu to break his friendship with Saravanan and declares nothing between them until then. Vasu does not want to break his friendship with Saravanan directly as to not hurt Saravanan's feelings. He gets the help of his friend, Gautham (Karunakaran) who tells him to get Saravanan married. Vasu helps Saravanan to get a girlfriend in the hopes that the girlfriend will be a reason to end the friendship. Saravanan and Vasu go to Happy Marriage.com where Saravanan falls for Aishwarya Balakrishnan (Tamanna Bhatia) who works there.

Aishwarya, who initially dislikes Saravanan, eventually agrees to his love. As Saravanan had interviewed Seema before she married Vasu, Vasu interviews Aishwarya at a cafe. A fight breaks out between Aishwarya and Vasu, forcing Saravanan to choose between the two. Saravanan chooses Aishwarya and breaks his friendship with Vasu. Vasu later exits the cafe dramatically but secretly enjoys outside by dancing.

Vasu reunites with Seema but minutes later, Saravanan appears revealing that he was only lying in front of Aishwarya that he had broken their friendship. Seema feels cheated as Vasu had promised Seema upon their future child that their friendship was cut. Seema is furious and leaves to her mother's place. Vasu gets irritated and he tells Saravanan to leave and never show his face again.

That night, Gautham tells Vasu that Saravanan had broken up with Aishwarya for him. Vasu immediately rushes to see him and they reunite. They decide to start a club of men who have been cheated by their wives or girlfriends. This turns out to be successful. They are also supported by Akila Chechi (Shakeela), leader of Akila Indian Men Security Club. Then Assistant Commissioner Vetri Vel (Vishal) arrives and tells the trio to join up with their wives by lying that they have their friendship cut.

Cast

Production

In November 2013, Arya agreed to finance and star in the lead role of director M. Rajesh's next venture, with Santhanam also brought in to the project to play a supporting role. Nayantara was also reported to be a part of the film and an official press statement was released during the same month, stating that filming would begin in late 2014 after Arya had finished his ongoing commitments.[1] In March 2014, Rajesh revealed that it would be a sequel to their successful comedy film Boss Engira Bhaskaran (2010) and that Tamannaah would also play a new character in the franchise.[2] Nayantara later opted out of the film, and Rajesh began re-working the script.[3] In October 2014, Rajesh then announced that the film would not be a sequel to his previous film and that it would be a new script.[4]

A launch event was held on 21 November 2014 and the team began production on the same day, with scenes involving Arya and Tamannaah shot.[5] The cast and crew list was also revealed with Bhanu, Karunakaran and Vidyullekha Raman also included in the film.[6] The movie title has been revealed as Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga on 24 November.[7] The logo took on the theme of alcoholic beverages, as the logo was an image of a beer bottle cap and the title itself was a play on its contraction "VSOP", which normally abbreviated to its description of certain types of brandy, "very superior old pale". It was known that Prasad V Potluri is also producing the film under his banner PVP cinema along with Arya's 'The Show People'.[8]

Reception

The film received mixed reviews but was praised for the comedy. Rediff gave the film 2 stars out of 5 and wrote that "the offending script make Rajesh’s Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga a silly and tasteless film that does not deserve your time."[12] Indiaglitz gave the film 2.5 stars out of 5 and wrote, "This film has many rib tickling, entertaining and engaging moments. But when can we expect an entertainer from Kollywood that does not pass demeaning judgments on women and tease someone for their looks to make others laugh?."[13] The Times of India gave the film 2.5 stars out of 5 and wrote, "What Rajesh has done is [..] taking bits and pieces from his previous successful films and giving us a new film that feels familiar. The only difference is that he manages to succeed... to an extent".[14] India Today rated 1 star and criticised that "Rajesh's two-and-half-hour script has nothing, but female bashing, making fun of plus-sized women, double-meaning-ed, innuendo-ed dialogues and absurd one-liners, which are sweet-coated as humour".[15]
