High Energy Action Movie. Thuppakki is an action thriller movie revolving around a youngster from a Mumbai-based Tamil family and his decisions he takes after his life undergoes a sudden turn. Kajal Aggarwal has a meaty role in Thuppakki. Her role is not limited to be an arm-candy of Vijay in Thuppakki. Well, she will be seen in the role of a boxer in the film. She plays the role named Nisha, an iron-willed girl. However, the actress will also be seen in glamorous avatars. Jagadeesh is a carefree youngster whose life takes a jolting turn and he is faced with crucial decisions.Vijay's costumes are perfect.Well set trailer .
