Thuppaki added to the festivities of Diwali yesterday. Yes, all the theatres screening this Vijay starrer wore a festive look and movie buffs looked ecstatic to catch a glimpse of their favorite star on the silver screens. Let’s check out how this film, for which ace director AR Murugadoss has wielded the megaphone for, has fared at the box office.
Vijay is an army captain who visits his family in Mumbai on a 40-day vacation. Kajal Agarwal is his ladylove. How he spends his vacation along with his family and ladylove and his mission to thwart the efforts of the terrorists to plant bombs in several locations in Mumbai forms the crux of this action entertainer from AR Murugadoss. Vijay does look stylish with his youthful looks and the theatre reverberated with applause in scenes in which appears sporting blazers and glares. In short, Vijay has done full justice to the role looking urbane to the core!
Kajal Agarwal doesn’t have much to do apart from appearing glamorous and romancing Vijay in some of the popular numbers scored by Harris Jayaraj. Sathyan has once again proved his comic sense and so does the veteran Jayaram. The former plays Vijay’s friend while the latter is his senior officer in the army. Baddie Vidyut Jamwal has made the best use of the opportunity accorded to him and has done full justice to his role.
Harris Jayaraj has churned out some chartbusters for this album and the way they have been captured on camera by Santosh Sivan is a visual treat, of course.
Positives: Vijay’s costumes and stylishness, AR Murugadoss’s direction, Harris’ music and Santosh Sivan’s camerawork.
Negatives: Some scenes are illogical, songs does hinder the film’s progress.
In total: It is the biggest treat for all Vijay fans out there!
