Hello friends

Billa was the only south Indian film that was selected for cannes film festival in the year 2007.So guess how much impact it created among all over the world.Its really a fantastic movie i ever seen .Most stylish film ever in the history of south Indian films.Its almost like Hollywood movie.The way music performed by Yuvan Shankar Raja was superb.The theme music was excellent .It even catched many peoles mind. Just imagine that the movie is the third remake of Don after King Khan.Even though story was known to everybody , the way film was directed made people to see the movie with more eagerness.Also repeated audience made the film a grand success.Superb in action and stylish in tamil film industry
