Thalaivaa Tamil Movie Review by Aswin

The first half of the movie is slow but is colourful and filled with fun and doesn’t bore you. With some decent comedy from Santhanam, it keeps the audience entertained.

Vijay’s much awaited film Thalaivaa has hit the theatres today. Directed by A L Vijay, Thalaivaa is an Action-Drama-Thriller movie and has Amala Paul in the female lead.

Thalaivaa is 3-hour story of a common man who turns into a leader. The story starts with two local gangs in Mumbai and the dispute between them. Sathyaraj who plays the father of Vijay is the leader of the gang. Meanwhile Vijay’s character is enjoying a luxurious life in Australia, where meets the love of his life. As the movie moves to Mumbai more facts are revealed.

The first half of the movie is slow but is colourful and filled with fun and doesn’t bore you. With some decent comedy from Santhanam, it keeps the audience entertained. The romantic scenes between Vijay and Amala Paul are well taken. Vijay’s electrifying dance performance is a plus point of the film. The second half starts with Vijay’s transition from a common man to Thalaivaa. However the film soon loses its grip and falls short with forced comedies and an unwanted romance involving the second heroine. The movie takes a lot of time to unfold and one does lose interest at some point.

Thalaivaa is one of Vijay’s best performances till date and Amala Paul gets a decent role. Sathyaraj resembles the ‘Nayagan’ Kamal Hasaan but his screen presence is an asset. Santhanam’s comedy and the pre-climax episode is another plus.

Technically, Nirav Shah’s nifty cinematography, well choreographed songs, good art direction and GVP’s BGM are the plus points of the film. However, the unimpressive villain, a few cliché ridden old fashioned scenes and the needless second heroine are the negatives of the film. The 3 hour duration is also a major drawback of the film.

Thalaivaa is not a usual Vijay film you see. It’s a movie which travels on a slower pace. A film with more class and less mass.

Bottom-line: Don’t expect a magic like Thuppaki, but masses and fans would easily enjoy the flick.

Verdict: Worth watching
Rating: 6 / 10
