A Mindblowing show with some heart touching scenes, 14 November 2012
Author: Theonlydev from India

first i need to talk about home work done by Ar.Murugadoss and his directors...such a simple script with an amazing nd intelligent screenplay which engages u till the end without even single bore sequence...a extravagance show from Vijay what a changeover every frame he looks so handsome resembling hard work in action sequences which he carries the movie on his shoulders through out the end with a stylish acting,he shines in dance steps too and such a mannerisms only Vijay can do that.Kajal Agarwal is so gorgeous.Love track between Vijay and Kajal will make u laughter and executed nicely technically movie is hand-held by Santhosh Sivan is the top notch of the movie which his hidden camera made to wonder how they made this scenes in huge crowd,such an awesome work by him.Sreekarprasad editing is slick and stylish.songs are already Chartbusters,Especially Harris scores in background music which he gave terrific scores for hero as well as villain Vidyut who didn't Hav any scope in Billa 2 steals the show with his performance in this movie.An intelligent attempt by Ar.Murugadoss and once again proved he is the master of screenplay,in each and every frame his Hardwork is there which he gave as racy action thriller we can't find even one minus through out the movie its a special Diwali treat for all moviegoers and as well as Vijay fans once again hats off to Murugadoss and Vijay for making this movie to be grand and stylish venture go and enjoy the experience
