Vaandu reminded me of another film of last year, Sketch. Even though Sketch was a far better movie than this (I can’t believe I am typing this), both films have a similar theme. The former focused on impressionable youngsters who take to thuggery because they find it to be cool. Similarly, in Vaandu, Veera wants to be a street fighter, inspired by his dad Raja. But the latter is pushed to a bedridden state, due to injuries from his fight with Guna. Hence, Veera faces resistance from his mother to get into street fighting. However, he does get into it, and also develops a rivalry with Guna’s son, Logu. The conflict between Veera and Logu forms the core conflict of Vaandu.
