In the song "Thalapathy Thalapathy", the lead offers his car keys (Mahindra Xuv 500) telling him that the car does not have a clutch. This is incorrect as that vehicle is available only in a manual transmission variant. See more »
It's not in our behaviour to commit crime, but stopping it is our tradition.

Thalaivaa was edited in the UK, upon a formal submission to the BBFC the film was passed with a '15' classification uncut (meaning that viewers under 15 cannot watch the film), the distributors whom were unsatisfied with this rating then chose to re-edit the film by around two minutes in order to obtain a 12A classification. This cut version was then passed and released into UK cinemas. See more »
Director Vjay who gave good movies like Kireedam, Poi Solla Porom, Madrasapattinam & Deiva Thirumagal always stays in our heart. After staying in a while with doing drama he first shift his focus to try his hand in action with Thandavam and it didn't go pretty well as we thought. OK, everyone does mistake at the first time we try something. So he tried his hand in action commercial movie again with Thalaivaa, but it became more worst here.
The story starts with Satharaj rise up as a don and sends his son Vijay when he was little to Australia to grown up without knowing what his father does in Mumbai. When he's grown he fell in love with Amala Paul and comes back to get his fathers consent for their marriage. But he gets to know about his fathers real self and when he tries to bring him abroad his father gets killed and he has to take his fathers position. Then the story is about how he rise and how did he revenge the villain.
The pluses here are Santhanam's comedy, Songs and the twists. The minuses are It's second half. After Maatran i felt this is the most boring second half that i have ever seen.
I hope Vijay gets back to drama or at least get some real advice from the people who can do a good action movies.
