Thupakki a racy entertainer that keeps you hooked till the end.
14 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Thupakki, the much awaited Vijay-murugadoss combo hit the screens yesterday and luckily I got a ticket for a early morning special screening at a local multiplex. Right from the first frame, Vijay mesmerizes the audience with his sleek looks and awesome style. A big thumbs up to his costume designer who has done the job with utmost care.

The strength of the movie lies in the flawless screenplay and dialogues by murugadoss. The Cat and mouse game between the protagonist and villain has been scripted immaculately. Especially the scene before intermission and climax got electrifying response in the theater.

Vijay seems more mature on the screen and his scenes involving kajal and satyan cracks up the audience. Actions sequence seems more vivid and dynamic in Santhosh sivan's camera who has once again showed the world that he has not won the national awards for nothing. Harris Jayaraj has done a commendable job with his BGM score and it makes some scenes even more striking. Songs are good and murugadoss has taken a special care in choosing the locations for it. Especially Vennilave song's backdrop is mindblowing. Though Kajal agarwall didn't have a big role to play,she along with sathyan and Jayaram provide comic relief at regular intervals.

One more person who if not mention here would be unfair is editor Sreekar Prasad. He has chiseled the movie perfectly and the audience doesn't feel like a watching a movie that is almost 3hrs. Villain Vidyut Jamwal robust and does a laudable job. He has portrayed a character who is brainy and evil.

On the downside the romance track between Vijay and Kajal is Clichéd. Even though songs are good, the situations they appear are not relevant.

On the whole Thupakki is a racy entertainer that keeps you hooked till the end. It is one of the Vijay's best movie in the recent times. With Nanban already a hit and now along with thupakki 2012 is surely belongs to Ilayathalapathy.
