The hype gets big when a reputed director and a mass movie star join hands together. If the movie gets released for a festival like Diwali, with a tentatively themed title, the hype only gets bigger and better. This is the thing that happened with the case of Thuppakki. A R Murugadoss for the first time joined hands with Ilayathalapathy Vijay and has come up with what can be called as a stylish action flick, which is one of the favorite genres for the actor. Thuppakki makes the shot right, thanks to A R Murugadoss, as it is sure to satisfy not just the fans of Vijay, but also all types of audiences!
Thuppakki is all about an intelligent military officer Jagadish (Vijay). Jagadish is based in Mumbai and returns home from the military base to take a break with family and friends. His family members are desperate on finding a girl for him and they end up finding Nisha (Kajal Aggarwal). Jagadish and Nisha, after the usual blah blahs find love with each other and get set for marriage. However, Jagadish has other plans of demolishing the terrorist sleeper cells based in Mumbai. He has a task in hand – stopping the cells from landing bombs in 12 different Mumbai localities. Can Jagadish complete this daunting task? What is in store for him in this task? What happens to Nisha?
A R Murugadoss knows how to impress the movie watchers. He has done that clearly right from his first movie, and Thuppakki is no exception. He has understood the characteristics of his lead actor and has delivered the content in the apt manner without messing any part. The big plus is the racy script, which keeps the audiences engaged throughout the runtime. In addition, he has not given in to the illogical commercial elements, which negated the Vijay’s movies in recent times, with Nanban being another exception.
Vijay has done a commendable job in showing Jagadish onscreen. His body language does justice to his role. Kajal Aggarwal does the usual job and she has done that well. Actor Sathyan and Jayaram do the humorous part, which gives no scope for a veteran actor like the latter one.
The technical aspects have lifted the quality of the movie exceptionally well, with Santhosh Sivan as the cameraman and Sreekar Prasad cutting the unnecessary parts. Harris Jayaraj does no magic, except his peppy Google Google number.
Overall, Thuppakki is a stylish shot that will definitely serve the expected Diwali treat!
