  Majority of the films from Vijaya Vauhini Studios were decent and delighting films meant for the family audience.Breezy humour was the prominent element of these films.Films like Kalyanam Panni Paar,Missiamma &Manidhan Maaravillai were specially filled with high quality humour spread throughout the narration with delicate aesthetic touches.While Padhala Bhairavi and Maya Bazar had mythical element of sustaining quality,all the other films were action oriented. Family values,social awareness,wellness of mind, courage and conviction and spirit of brotherhood were the chief human traits reflected by the narration mode of these films.It was this varied cinematic sense that caused a lot of positive vibes and fulfilment of expectation in terms of exalting entertainment.

Appropriate gauging of the mood of the viewers remained as one of the clinching points of Vijaya Vauhini Studios in taking the quality of Tamil cinema to its desired heights.This could be the secret of their continued success story.
