An Action packed Deepavali Cracker which bursts Louder
14 November 2012 | by (chennai) – See all my reviews

If you come to watch this film for Vijay or ARM or Harris or Santosh or Vidyut. The result is you will return home with an idea of Watching it again. I watched FDFS at 5:00 am in Velan theater in Nanganallur. I saw not only ardent fans but also families who came to watch this film with so much interest. Well you can see this only Vijay movies after Rajini.

Now what about this "Thuppakki"??? Is it fighting for terrorism? or Vijayism? or Patriotism?. One word for ever thing is "Sacrifice". Yes this film tells how an army officer would be in border or with his family, he should not back step for sacrifice. He must be alert and cautious and he must work not only with his muscle but also mind.

The plot: Jagdish(Vijay) who is an Army officer returns home for a vacation to his family. But his family decides to make him get married. But he rejects Nisha(Kajal). Soon he discovers a bombing plot which makes assails whole Mumbai. Then rest of the story how he gets the leader and master mind behind this plot.

Vijay with his unique style of acting excels well in this role. He has stunning physique and active gestures makes fit to the role of Secret Agent. Whether its humor,action,sentiment he delivers with ease and no doubt its one of the best performance of Vijay as all rounder in recent times. Kajal looks mesmerizing with her eyes and dance moves. She is lovable. Satyan supports well the story and his final lines on end of the movie gives kudos to whole Indian Army. Vidyut the brain of sleeper cells made huge impact with his cunning plots and problem solving skills in making quick decisions. His martial background adds extra ARM's intelligent screen play and the execution was so brilliant. We can see as he so cautious in screen play after his box office debacle Ezham arivu. Harrish music is so peppy and everything shot well with Santhosh sivan's cinematography especially "GOOGLE GOOGLE" and "Kutti puli kootam". BG score is major plus point in this film and thanks to Harrish Jayaraj.

So over all this film is best of recent times and its sure winner of Deepavali. If you are a Vijay fan nor ARM fan nor any one, you will watch this film and enjoy with a salute to Indian army.

My over all rating for this film is 10/10
