Story though revolving around a friendship , actually ends up portraying how a dull mundane town awakens with a fresh lease of life , in a grand way , with just a small visit by the Superstar in lieu of his shooting .
Quite shocking and surprising to see the superstar in a small role like this , with more focus given to Pasupathi.(Definitely disappointing and irritating for all his fans including me). Yet , he manages to pull off with his spectacular performance, style and his impeccably dialogue delivery loaded with punch lines
Bordering on the lines of an art film , yet managing to draw in big crowds with the marketing based mainly on the “Rajnikanth ” factor , the movie contains something for all.. Rip roaring comedy by Vadivelu , some terrific awe inspiring punch lines and style from the BOSS , sentiments,bits and pieces of glamour and some thought provoking scenes.Everything packed into one , but yet manages to move away from any Rajnikanth movie(A pardadigm shift indeed !) .GOSH ,there isnt even a fight scene in this movie , which so happens to be a Rajni movie.That takes some guts by the director !
As far as the music is concerned , the songs lack any life in it , though Prakash has scored well on the BGM ..The same goes with Nayanthara , who manages to stifle a big yawn…
Despite all of these , the movie is simply too good , and a must watch . For everyone .. not just his fans..
IS he the greatest actor India has ever produced ?
But of course..No exceptions !!
