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 ...

Sivaji - One of the BOSS(Best of Super Star)
17 June 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Movie starts with the normal logic as our Super Star want to do good things to the society by constructing a University but villain Suman (who has done a decent job) creates lot of difficulties ...the story goes with the slow pace and our Super Star falls in love and wants to marry the gorgeous Shriya( She looks so beautiful and fits her role perfectly) .Normally our Super Star will not have any trouble to make a girl fall in love or mostly girl's will be running around to impress him but here it is different, our Super Star has to struggle to win the heart of Shriya . Vivek comes with our Super Star for most of the scene but honestly speaking I didn't feel a great sense of comedy through him when compared to his previous movies. At one stage our Super Star is in bankrupt because of the hurdles made by the villain. There comes the interval ,after seeing the first half , I did n't feel a great impact on the movie, bit worried whether I am watching a movie which is worth of the price 20 Euro (double the price of a English/Hindi movie) I paid because of slow pace and normal comedy scenes.

Now come the Second half, starting with Thalaivar tossing the coin and starting his revenge, from here the Movie goes like a Jet flight. Our Thalaivar rocks with the awesome look and style. Lots of humorous scenes and extraordinary fights in the Second half adds more feathers to the Success hat. The Most fantastic part of the Movie is the last 15 minutes where our Super Star turns from Sivaji to MGR, I wish MGR could have introduced much earlier. Movie ends with our Super Star's Victory over villain as well as in the movie.

Sivaji's technical team has done a tremendous job especially Cinematography, Art Direction,Editing... .

Fights and songs are too good where our Thalaivar has done a Kalakal(super) performance. ..

AR Rahman ,no wonder about his role in the movie which is a major pillar for success

Shankar has used his high cost formulas in an efficient way for our Super Star which made me feel that I am watching a movie which is worth of the price, I paid.

-Sivaji is a huge feast for Rajini Fans, you will enjoy 200% guaranteed entertainment if you search Super Star Rajini in Sivaji but if you search Shankar in Sivaji then only 20 % so enjoy the movie ,don't look for logic as well as Shankar.

Sivaji worth watching again and one of the BOSS(Best of Super Star)
