Vil Ambu is a decent thriller with a close-knit screenplay written and directed by debutant filmmaker Ramesh Subramaniam.

The film revolves around how two persons (Karthi and Arul), who live in the same locality, cross paths unknowingly. It also tries to get across the fact that every action of a human is proportional and connected to another human being.

The first half of the film is packed with twists and turns backed by interesting subplots and supporting characters. Harish Kalyan and Sree deliver natural performances in their portrayals of a man who struggles to strike a balance between pursuing his dream job and appeasing his parents and, an incorrigible stealer. The supporting cast, including Harish Uthaman, has also done good justice to the film. Yogi Babu’s one-liners are the highlight in the film and enliven the spirit of the audience every now and then. Mathan, plays the role of MLA is believable and aces the role despite his minimal screen time.

Had the team properly transformed their intentions on paper to screen with more engaging subplots, Vil Ambu would have been an enjoyable thriller.

Martin Joe’s cinematography passes through the packed alleyways of Coimbatore seamlessly with a good background score by Navin. The coherence of screenplay is the major worry and editor  Ruben could have worked on it with more caution.

Vil Ambu Movie Review Rating: 2.75/5
