Theri Disappoints…yes.

Like a formula director listed are the checkpoints:

If any of the above you have not seen earlier and agree that this was all old movies combined into a new movie with the desperation of making producers happy and forego the artistic element of cinema…you have not watched enough movies.The funny part is Hero can hang whomever he wants and at any place and no one creates a sensation out of it. No family history for the Villain who can come and take revenge…except son and party friend who die a gory death.

What disappointed was that Vijay had picked up this role without thinking twice. Vijay needs to do more justice in storyline and brand building. Where are the good directors and why dont they pick up and try a good movie with him? There is one element in this movie though which i do not want to ignore. Audio and Picturization was of good class. Other directors should use this….

Its time Tamil cinema comes out of the Cop Movie Culture and bring in some fresh stories
