IN-DEPTH REVIEW (SPOILER ALERT):
First half: The movie starts off with Vijay (Kathiresan), a prisoner helping the cops catch a thief who has just escaped the prison. When his job is done, Kathiresan just vanishes and the story moves on. With a few unnecessary scenes of the heroine introduction and other stuff that is totally irrelevant, the director finally comes back to the story in a while when Satish (Dhanu) and Kathiresan see people shoot at an innocent fellow in an auto rickshaw. They decide to rescue him and to their shock, the guy who was shot looks exactly like Kathiresan. They come to know that his name is Jeevanandam ( Vijay's double action). Kathiresan immediately decides to pretend like Jeevanandam and makes things appear like Jeevanandam is Kathiresan to avoid the cops chasing him. Kathiresan (who people assume to be Jeevanandam) then comes to an Old-Age home where he is brought to by the District Collector (somehow, don't question). Kathiresan wants money and decides to stay for it. Cedric Peter Von (more like Viktor Von Doom) (Neil NItin Mukesh) plays a typical MNC CEO who is ready to do anything for the company. Jeevanandam is arrested by the police and kept in jail. Kathiresan however slowly comes to know the real story of Jeevanandam and the pain he has gone through for his village and the farmers in his village. Kathiresan decides to help the old farmers as Jeevanandam and starts his fight for the right.
The first half ends with the THUPPAKKI QUOTE - "I am waiting"
After numerous attempts by Neil Nitin Mukesh to kill Kathiresan( they think Jeevanandam) failed, the story begins to move quick when Kathiresan uses his extravagant skill to fight for the farmers. The entire story revolves around the fact that the farmers in a village deep south are devoid of water for farming and an MNC Cola Factory has encroached the farmer's property by illegal means.
Jeevanandam escapes the prison with the help of a few people and returns to Chennai when he comes to know everything. Kathiresan fights till the end as Jeevanandam and wins the case for the farmers but however leaves the place giving all credit to Jeevanandam, and finally accepts his mistake and returns to jail.
WHAT COULD BE BETTER:
1. The Heroine, Samantha ( I don't want to talk about her) 2. A bit quicker story build. 3. Rectification of very minor forgivable logical flaws in the movie.
WHAT WAS GOOD:
1. Vijay 2. Anirudh's Music and BGM 3. Direction
