At a time when his son Silambarasan is playing the hero in Tamil cinema, veteran Vijaya T Rajendhar has competed with his son by playing a bubbly young hero.

Veerasaami is a kind of movie which is sure to provide a quaint relish experience for the audience watching Vijaya T Rajendhar romance, running around the trees, flexing his muscles and mouthing typical 'TR' dialogues.

While the first half portrays him as a 'mass hero', the latter half is filled with family sentiments and emotions.

Occupying a major screen space is TR, who cares for the society, his beloved and his family-members.

The veteran actor in colorful costumes in dance sequences shakes his leg in the company of Mumtaz for song sequences.

Vijaya T Rajendhar has not missed the opportunity to mouth his political ideology and also make some references about his son Silambarasan.

It is a different Mumtaz altogether in the movie. As 'Salt Kottai' Sarasu, she acts in a de-glamorized role. In the role of TR's heartthrob, she has had enough opportunity to prove her acting skills. Filling the glamour quotient is Meghna Naidu. Donning the role of a rich and a suave girl, she does her job well. The rest of the cast including Santhanam comes around Vijaya T Rajendhar singing his paeans.

Veerasaami (Vijaya T Rajendhar), an advocate and a local MLA, is a do-gooder. He cares for the people around him and always is available at their door-steps in times of crises. Meanwhile his sister (Sheela) falls in love with a pimp's brother Arun (Ajees). Coming to know about their affair, Veerasaami put his foot down on the love.

The noble deeds of Veerasaami attract his neighbour 'Salt Kottai' Sarasu (Mumtaz) towards him. Her family is involved in flesh trade.

Up in arms against her family members, Sarasu leads a different life staying away from them. A sequence of events leads to a local rowdy winning the local elections defeating Veerasaami and eventually marrying Sarasu.  Unable to bear his physical abuse and torture, Sarasu plans to walk away from her husband.

Meanwhile, Meghna (Meghna Naidu) falls in love with Arun. A naive Meghna enacts a drama and separates Arun from Veerasaami's sister.

Veerasaami then takes the mantle of setting things right in both the families.

Did he succeed in his mission and what sacrifices he was compelled to make, forms the climax.

Vijaya T Rajendhar has stamped his mark all through the film. He has composed tunes, penned the lyrics, cranked the camera besides playing the lead role.  Almost all the characters seem to have derived energy from their director. All utter lengthy dialogues. Silambarasan has crooned a romantic duet for his father.

Though the movie is certainly not in the league of TR films like Uyirullavarai Usha or Thangaikku Oru Geetham, Veerasaami is a good time pass for those who love humour (of the unintentional kind).
