Nice one from Ilaiyathalapathy VIJAY
14 August 2016 | by robin-49067See all my reviews

Another nice movie from the director of the blockbuster THUPAKKI.The movie ensembles the real life struggle of the farmers who experiencing the water scarcity.Vijay's acting skills are charismatic and he have done best on both of the dual roles.Again director Handled the social problem in an correct manner.Overall the movie is good. Background score is an masterpiece of aniruth ravichander.Character selection for the movie is good.Samantha's performance should be appreciated all the songs are good the negative thing in the movie is dulling comedies by karunagaran.We have to majorly thank the elder ones who acted in the movies because all of them done a great performance.According to the sources the revenue of the movie is profit and also ANOTHER 100CR collection record for VIJAY
