Storyline

Held in a cell, Sivaji reflects how he came to be under police scrutiny and his subsequent arrest for a variety of economic offenses. He had returned to Chennai from the U.S. to live with his parents and maternal uncle, and had hoped to invest money in colleges and hospitals so that people who are not privileged can benefit - much to the chagrin of a sophisticated goon, Adisheshan, who threatens him, and asks him not to tread on his territory. Disregarding this and hoping to get his projects going, Sivaji runs into bureaucratic corruption and red-tape - so much so that he gives in and bribes an official Rs.4 Crores to complete his Rs.200 Crore project. An enraged Adisheshan has the local politician stop the work, but Sivaji bribes the latter Rs.50 Crores, after liquefying most of his assets. While he is busy wooing and attempting to marry Tamizhselvi/Vidyabharti Ramlingam, a new politician takes over, stops his project, and demands another Rs.50 Crores. Unable to come up with the ...

Trivia

Rajinikanth appears as a white skinned European guy in a song sequence. The Digital skin grafting effects used to create the dark skinned Rajini into a white skin guy took almost one year with the help of 25 technicians. All this, with the help of computer graphics that lifts a European woman's skin and grafts it into the superstar's face. Each of the over 6,500 frames had to be worked on individually and he same process has been used to create an almost black Rajini in the song sequence too. This process is said to be the first in Indian cinema, if not in World cinema. "Whatever shot we took with Rajini sir, we took with a white girl we selected. We went for the girl because she would have softer skin and flushed cheeks. We took the tone and texture from her face and applied it on his face," said cinematographer 'Anand K. V.'. See more »

Sivaji (3D) (U) TAMIL ---------my Rating : 4.5/5 stars EXCELLENT
15 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

Sivaji (3D) (U) TAMIL ---------my Rating : 4.5/5 stars EXCELLENT

My First Tamil 3D experience .... It is a 3D version of the sivaji 2007 original flick.... am not reviewing the Sivaji 2007 as it is 5/5 stars rated movie....i will be reviewing this new 3D version.....

VERY GOOD:- *3D effects : superb especially in Title SUPERSTAR..... *Songs : best is athiradee had a huge buzz..... *Action : 3D was good especially in second half fight sequences *CLIMAX was rocking in 3D..... *Songs were superb feels real especially in all songs 3D feel was good..... *Story and Direction *Cinematography : 3D was well... *Prasads EFX : has done a very good job..... * Additional attractions were added which gives more importance to feel nearer in 3D....

VERY BAD:- *The movie was completely edited from 180 minutes to 150 minutes this leads audience disappoint......

FINAL VERDICT:- *It is a clean entertainer ....Go for it.... I strongly recommend to watch in SATHYAM CINEMAS or ESCAPE or S2..... they show u the real 3D.....

I was surprised because a new type of Specialized glasses were given in Sathyam called HFR 3D to view this flick.....I will watch again.....
