The death of Padaiyappa's father destroys his family. But his luck changes, and he is able to lead a prosperous life, embarrassing those who stood over his family. But when the opportunity arrives, his nemesis plots to ruin his happy family
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 ...

Sivaji - The Boss Whenever I go to a movie, I just wish to forget the logic and want to be entertained for 3 hours completely. This is what happened to me, a thorough entertainment. One of the best movies by Superstar.
Rajini - He is all the way in this movie unlike padayappa or Chandramukhi. The opening scenes were too good. As everybody else have exploited the plot, it is about black money and a timing one. Shankar wants his ideas to be expressed loudly and he has chosen Superstar this time and has given it pretty well. There were some loop holes, which may be forgiven as this is just a movie (How can people expect a natural drama with Rajini?).
With Vivek, he makes the crowd go crazy with comedy, especially when Vivek stops Rajini from telling punch dialogues and when Rajini speaks about PROFESSIONAL ETHICS to a corrupt minister.
Costumes and make up help Rajini to look younger. Commendable work by the group. Scenes, where Rajini looks Whiter, puts the audience in surprise.
Styles and Actions are too good. Villain Suman has given his best for his role. Shreya looked like Diva in song sequences and fits for purpose.
Mottai rajini rocks everyone on theatre.
Finally Shankar wanted a film based on a strong message for Black money and Rajini has once again shown why he is an uncrowned Emperor of Indian Cinema.
Forget the logic, go watch the movie and get yourself treated. Because Shankar and Rajini have given the best of their PROFESSIONAL ETHICS.
