Don't go in here expecting a usual hard hitting and brilliant Karthik Subbaraj film. It may not work for all but for the ones who have witnessed or seen Thalaivar from the Baasha days, you are truly in for a treat. Karthik manages to show Thalaivar in his best way possible and he deserves praise for that. I would give a 9/10 for the first half alone but the second half has some drawbacks such as the lengthy scenes and undeveloped characters coming in the flashback portion. The cinematographer has captured and displayed great colour tones throughout the movie. Anirudh excels in his department and the sound track stands out as well. The rest of the cast has performed equally well in their given space, notably Vijay Sethupathy and Nawazuddin Siddique. Overall, it is must watch for all as you will witness the vintage Thalaivar with his swag and style at the max.
