Storyline

Sivan (Mohanlal) is a well-respected don in the area of Madurai. After his driver was killed in an altercation with a few enemies, including a rowdy cop, he takes the driver's son Shakthi (Vijay) as his own. Shakthi grows up with a vengeful hatred towards the Police uniform and any other Khaki clothing. Even towards his eventual lover (Kajal), initially hating, but then seeing her good side, But it is when his Father desires him to wear the uniform, that turn the tables on the illegal work of Sivan. How Shakthi deals with his Father, and an unknown assailant forms the crux of the story. Written by Sam Abraham

Commercial Cocktail
27 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Its one of those Commercial rockets. Works primarily B-COS although its got stars, its got a engrossing story that keeps claiming attention. Something or other happens in Jilla ! either somebody is comical or somebody is fighting a war or somebody is asking justice. Its this "story-laden" aspect that works big-time for this movie. on the flip side, there was probably too much story. every scene had detailing which worked largely positively and at times, over-whelmed the frame. But try telling that to vijay die-hard fans ! Direction was smooth. Not over- doing anything and good tempo maintained throughout. I wonder why there were complaints on the pacing. i look forward to good story-telling and pacing is never a deterrent in an action masala. overall, Jolly enjoyable film
