Demi-god!

The thalaivar we grew up idolizing is back on our screens thanks to Kartik Subburaj.

Marana mass bgm by Anirudh best since the golden era of Deva.

Superstar; the energy and aura he oozes is pure bliss. A 69 year old man, looking this fit and the passion to entertain us is unheard off, may this long continue.

Vijay Sethupathy's pure innocence and the way he suits this character is perfect,

Nawazuddin Siddiqui- Great Debut in Tamil.

P.S- Please Thalaiva, give us movies like this! Smoking disclaimer- madness!
