Vijay back with a bang Theri is fully a commercial movie which all kind of audience can enjoy.Apart from the normal storyline everything in the movie is refreshing.The visuals of every songs are amazing.The camera work by George is top notch.The screenplay is brilliant as the movie is a racy action packed movie.GvPrakash has gives us a super bgm & music all through out the movie Apart from all these technical aspects Vijay has given his carrer's best performance.Samantha & Amy has done a good job.Nainika is the biggest plus of the movie.Dir Mahendra is just killing in his debut movie as villain.Motta rajendran & Prabhu as supporting artist plays a clean role.

Mass+Class=Theri
