Following “Thalaivaa”, Vijay is coming this year with “Jilla” directed by R.T. Neason. It will be the director’s second movie after “Muruga”, which failed to impress the spectators. The other major point is the presence of the Malayalam Super Star Mohanlal alongside Ilayathalapathy for this mass entertainer.

Story

Jilla opens to a mass action scene introducing Shiva (Mohanlal), a don, being cornered by a gang as he is rushing his pregnant wife to hospital. And who rescues him? A young boy Shakti, the son of Sivan’s driver who is felled by a policeman’s bullet in the melee. This leaves the employee’s son Shakti an orphan. Shiva adopts him and raises him along with his own son (Mahath).

Shakti (Vijay) grows up with an intrinsic hatred for Police, and so much that he does not want even his watchman to wear that. Oh yes, Shakti becomes a feared don – often comparing himself to the mythological Siva the “destroyer” to terrorise his detractors.

But, then, Indian cinema – at least most of it – has to follow good morals, has to be obsessed with what is right and what is not, with what is legal and what is illegal. In order to get a better grip over Madurai and to clear his path of obstacles, Sivan gets Shakti into the police force.

Things do not go Sivan’s way though, and I presume that the huge fan club of Vijay would not stomach their hero being seen as a villain (there were two college girls sitting beside me at the theatre who whistled hysterically every time Vijay walked into the frame, and so did many others inside the auditorium).

So, director Neason introduces a tragedy in Madurai, for which Sivan is responsible. This shakes and moves Shakti (we’re reminded of Ashoka the Great surveying the dead and the wounded in the battle of Kalinga before a profound change comes over him), and as he visits the hospital and sees the most horrific of scenes, he decides that he will free Madurai of crime.

And for that, he has to first reign in his adopted father, Sivan, whose arrogance and ego would not let him see reason, even pushing him to take up the sword against Shakti. So, who wins, Sivan or Shakti? Watch Jilla on the big screens to know!

    A commercial potboiler for the festive season made alive by Vijay and Mohanlal

    Having two equally popular and established actors in the cast list warrants perfect etching of their characters and Neason has satisfied this big time.

    Vijay as the actor dazzles in action, comedy, dance and emotions. Alternately funny and serious, emotional and steel-strong, Vijay delivers it all. His combination with Soori for timing comdedy has worked out well. Vijay’s body language in the lighter scenes is perfect with a relaxed and casual feel about it.

    Mohanlal who conveys a lot through the nano twitches of his facial muscles. A legend indeed! The intro song of this duo is a rocker with the cute banging of each other on the shoulders which kind of becomes their signature style in important scenes. Vijay and Mohanlal chemistry is a highlight.

    Soori stands out and the comedian is shining more and more with his ideal timing of dialogues and performance. The combination of Vijay-Kajal-Soori in comedy sequences brings out the laughs. However the meeting of the bride Kajal by Vijay and team is silly, could have been done in a different format.

    There is a huge contingent of supporting cast in the form of Poornima Bhagyaraj, Sampath, Ravi Maria, Thambi Ramiah, Mahat, Nivedha Thomas, Pradeep Rawat and Vidyulekha who do their roles with the expected sincerity.

    Punch dialogues are aplenty in Jilla and bring out the desired emotions. But the interval block dialogues could have been more impactful. At two hours and fifty minutes, Jilla is lengthy and the editor and director should have collaborated better to reduce it to make it tauter.

    The charismatic screen presence of Vijay and Mohanlal, few enjoyable musical tracks and comedy scenes and power packed action sequences mark Neason’s Jilla that travels on a standard template and satiates Vijay’s fans.

    Jilla is a wonderful start in 2014 with the total entertainer

    Vijay just breezes through his role as Shakti and Mohanlal shows why he is rated as one of the best actors of all time across the country as he just lives the role of Shiva. Kajal Agarwal is impressive in her unique role and her on screen chemistry with Vijay is very good.

    Sampath is a very versatile actor and has made good use of this chance to showcase his talent. Soori and Vijay provide for quite a few laughs and their scenes together tickle the funny bone. Nivedha Thomas, Mahath, RK and the rest of the cast are a huge plus to the movie.

    Imman’s music is very pleasing and is definitely one of the biggest value additions to the movie. Ganesh Rajavelu’s camera work is impressive. Raju Sundaram’s choreography and Imman’s music have blended together along with Vijay’s dancing talent to bring magic on screen.

    Had the duration of the movie been reduced a little, and the second half made crisper, Jilla would be more impressive than it already is. RT Neason’s work shows his skill and we are sure that he will go a long way.

    Super Good Films and Ilayathalapathy Vijay have got themselves off to a wonderful start in 2014 with the total entertainer Jilla!

    “Jilla” had all the ingredients to be an oustanding mass entertainer, but because of few small details and a too lengthy second half, the movie should not impress everyone. Unfortunately, the movie is not a racy mass entertainer. Anyway, it will be a good treat for Ilayathalapathy fans and a movie to watch once for others.

    Watched Veeram n Jilla..

    Veeram –
    Positive – Ajiths style, dialogue delivery, Sathamanam comedy, DSP BGM, Stunt.
    Negative – story line n choreography could have been much better..

    Verdict – Full n full awesome commercial entertainer after a decade from Ajith.. A movie were all the age range of people can enjoy.. A mass treat for Ajith fansz n otherwise too..

    Jilla
    Positive – Internal scene, choreography, songs, Vijay slim look, Stunt n a postive climax
    Negative – Mohan Lal unwanted dialogues but really not doing anything except climax, first half comedy, lengthy 2nd half, Vijays puch dialogues as usual, Repeating BGM by Imman n guessable story..

    Verdict – Personally felt like watching Ajith’s Dheena with story alteration. Jilla is treat for Vijay Fans n one time watchable for others.
