Excellent Blockbuster Movie, Ilayathalapathy Rocks!!
25 January 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Real great comeback for Vijay after 5 in row dull movies.. Vijay(Boominathan) and Asin(Meera)Hattrick victory, Asin done her character very well, even Vadivel(Ammavasai), Mithu(Maathu).. Thalapathy tried good acting. but it lacks someplace also full marks for him.. its worth watching in theater. First half looks little slow and second half and shocking climax is the great backbone to the Movie.. Siddqe done good job to vi jay after Friends movie.. This will be a good comeback for vi jay to done well next movies better... After many movies All fans in Tamil industry accepted this movie is good including Ajith fans... Rajkiran done the same roll suits with his character by Muthuramalinga Devar god of Semmanor village. Thanks. Hope Vijay will give again Mega hit movie..
