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

Jilla is .....Clever !

On the exterior, it appears a typical mass masala, yet on the interior, it talks Subtle emotions. Somewhere, It stacks drama with heavy aplomb, YET introduces a simple tear in the midst of no-where to quietly nudge.

Jilla is tailor-made for South Indian Audiences who look upon the Hero as God. Yet this filmmaker Subtly steers in a rogue protagonist and changes him so swiftly and quietly that you smile !

Vijay is back from his previous disaster, and hits pay-dirt with Jilla, in the company of a charismatic legend called Mohanlal ! Its mayhem at the theaters, when the two confront each other. Background Score by D.Imman, adds that necessary spunk and Cinematography by Ganesh Rajavelu is Stylish

People, Polarities, Moods, Emotions match Mass, Songs, Dances, Fights. And THIS balancing element is what makes clever filmmaking. And Dir Neason hits top-gear, translating into box-office collections
