The movie had a good start and hopes a good move. It is the remake of malayalam bodyguard but the director has changed some parts of screenplay according to tamil audiences taste & especially for Vijay fans. Director has worked out well to balance the movie for both Mass & Class Audiences. This is the 2nd movie from Vijay-Siddique's combination & 3rd one from Vijay-Asin and is a good one with a humorous background.
Vijay(Bhoominathan) is very much fond of goondas right from his childhood. He loved to take risks and to be brave always. He starts learning to become a brave goonda by becoming a bodyguard for famous anti socials. Sometime later, he decides to become the bodyguard of a wealthy and powerful man Rajkiran. He achieves his luck after saving Rajkiran from a danger. Vijay thus becomes the bodyguard of Rajkiran's only daughter Asin. Vijay follows Asin to her college as her Bodyguard. Asin and her friend Mithra Kurien gets irritated with him following them all day.
The two girls started making fake calls to Vijay's number, trying to get rid off him. Asin is the girl who calls him telling she is very much in love with him and all those stuffs. At first things goes smooth but later on it gets into serious issues. What happens next deals with the climax.
Vijay, Asin and Vadivelu have done their roles quite well. Vadivelu who stays with bodyguard vijay as a servant will makes us to laugh through out the film. As usual vijay's rocking dance performance continues in kaavalan too. Step up, Sada sada & Vinnai kappan are rocking with vijay's screen presence. Pattampochi song is type of a yesteryear's melody. Vidayasagar has scored good music for the film and also visuals by Ekambaram is excellent.
After years vijay has comes out of his masala formula, kaavalan is a family entertainer. The climax lights to one in Kuch kuch Hota Hai. Kaavalan is not an extra ordinary one but is worth watchable.
