Vijay's 'Varisu' is locked and loaded to release on Jan 11 for the occasion of Pongal, and the film is facing Ajith's 'Thunivu' at the box office. The excitement among the fans is high as the two box office rivals face a gap of 8 years, and they wait to see the best between the two. Now, 'Varisu' first review is out from overseas, and Vijay's acting receives appreciation. The first review of 'Varisu', which is reportedly quoted by a censor member from overseas, states that "#Vijay is a #beast and has proved his acting with mannerism and dialogues. He undergoes a spectrum of emotions in this family drama. Great to see such entertainment from him. * Simple content and heart-touching emotions".

Directed by Vamshi Paidipally, 'Varisu' has been cleanly addressed as the emotional family entertainer by the team from the beginning, and it looks like it has also come out the same way they promised. Vijay is to rock with his mannerism and dialogues in 'Varisu' and we can expect the film to have an extended theatrical run as well.

'Varisu' FDFS opens at 4 AM IST on Jan 11, while Ajith's 'Thunivu' opens at 1 AM IST. Theatre owners have allocated equal screens and shows for both Vijay and Ajith's film as they wish to see both succeed with this Pongal clash. The reservations for both films have been on the high ever since they opened, and the first two-day tickets are already sold out in most of the centers.Varisu starring Thalapathy Vijay and Rashmika Mandanna is one of the much hyped movie of Kollywood, which is arriving at the theaters on the occasion of Sankranthi. The movie is helmed by Vamsi Paidipally and funded by Dil Raju. Umair Sandhu, who calls himself a film and fashion critic in the UK, UAE and India, took to his twitter and shared his review on Vijay starrer Varisu  which is as follows:

First Review Varisu : Vijay & Rashmika Mandanna looking HOT together! 15 minutes film should be trimmed in first half & post interval portions. Climax episode is amazing. #Vijay Entry Scene is full on ClapsMasses & Families will love this Saga. Vijay is Back! 3.5/5
