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

Mohanlal making an appearance was the only motivating factor for me to watch Jilla. And Lalettan under-played subtly. I didn't expect this. But that's exactly why I liked it.

Lalettan could have been given more platform to exhibit his histrionics. But ironically, not exceeding is why the role stands out on its own. There is no hyper-realistic histrionics nor mad-cap mayhem. But there's the ubiquitious punch thrown into satisfy the local audience. Lal is definitely much more than, but sivans boundary stops there and lal becomes sivan and does ample justice by mellowing down.

There's this one shot in a far-off highway, where hes sitting like a King Dethroned, robbed of pride and glory and yet the director didn't subject the scene to melodrama. Instead he let Lalettan shed a …teardrop ! I love Jilla
