50 th movie makes it 50 times worse
13 October 2011 | by 123kal123See all my reviews

If ever there was a movie which deserved 0 stars its this one.There were times when i had to check with my friends if they were seeing what i was because i simply could not believe the nonsense that was being played on screen.I am a die hard Vijay fan but this one is very difficult to defend.The movie was made to tell us how good a human being Vijay is and that if we vote for him he will turn Tamil nadu into a paradise. He interacts with the audience more than the characters in the movie telling us how good a role model he is and we should all be like him.The whole cast must be ashamed of themselves and should do penance for dishing out a disaster like this. Pluses:Vijay's dance Negatives:the rest of the movie. Please do not watch this even if you are paid to. You will end up depressed. Having said that Vijay has promised his fans he will henceforth work with reputed directors so there is no way he can make another movie as bad as this.The trailer of velayudham looks OK but all of us are waiting for Nanban which i think will be the movie which will make us forgive Vijay for making Sura.
