A fitting Prequel but lacks some pace and material
14 July 2012 | by srinath_msnSee all my reviews

When you leave the movie theater after watching Billa 2, you wonder if its the best thing that has happened to the gangster genre of Kollywood or even for the Billa series. But, through the course of its narration, it misses the much requited pace and becomes slightly predictable.

The narrative style is entirely new to Tamil Cinema and Billa 2 surely has its moments of awe, which is largely due to the lead actor Ajith Kumar's screen presence and the way he tricks his rivals to death. There is a lot of gun slinging and fewer song sequences than in Billa, but they contribute to the story and keeps you in the edge of the seat. Ajith Kumar and director Chakri Toleti have put together some serious hard work and their efforts and results, are a treat on-screen. Yuvan Shankar Raja's background score and songs hugely supplement the story with its action sequences and his music is out of the world!

A few scenes could have been added to brief even more about David Billa's rift with the cops and fellow mafias. The style of narration is excellent a refreshingly new one though. Its impressiveness lies in the actors supporting it, fine camera work and top notch BGM.

Verdict: Mankatha > Billa 2 > Billa Points: 8 out of 10
