Pure Bred Blockbuster
15 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Thuppakki the best big hero film in last say five years, best Vijay movie since Pokkiri, and better movie than ghilli and pokkiri put together. Here is why the movie works perfectly, a script not custom made for Thalapathy, thanks to ARM for first writing the script and then choosing the actor, so he has created a role which Vijay can only do because the hero is required to do just about everything crack a comedy, be cool, be stylish, fight, romance and dance all one after the other. No actor in the same stature of thalapathy can actually do dat, one has to be a pure bred commercial hero for this film, and he is the one. If someone comes and says someone else can do this better than him then they don't know what they are talking about because one can excel at one and not excel at another. Pure bred blockbuster. The Story and Screenplay, ARM has woven a very intricate and intelligent story and has executed really well. Lot has been said about the cineatographer Santosh Sivan, I am a mere mortal to talk about this legend, I cant see anyone else providing the movie with such shots, which really helped the movie. The music even though the songs are average, Harriss scored in the BGM department, he excels it to the core, because they showcase the actor as stylish, cool and intelligent. The movie provides everything it promised and more. Intelligent, fast paced, witty and a whole lot of awesomeness......Watch it to redeem of the disappointing big hero movies this year. Pure Bred Blockbuster and the 2nd blockbuster of the year 2012 for Vijay and tamil cinema
