Last Diwali, Ilaya Thalapathy proved that he can act too, with A.R Murugadoss’ Kaththi.
Vijay is unbeatable in dance, awesome in comedy, good in stunts, but when it comes to acting (or emoting) on screen, I’d have him last in a list that would contain T. Rajendar, MGR, Murali and Sadagopan Ramesh. He proved me wrong in Kaththi; yes, he’s acted well in the past too, but in spurts.
Puli, coming on the back of Kaththi, meant I was going to watch it in the big screen. What with all the build-up given by our Thala TR in the audio launch, expectations were sky high (Btw, if you haven’t seen the TR video in Puli Audio launch, don’t miss it. It’s better than the movie, and available for free online).
My flatmate pre-booked tickets for October 2.
My review of the movie, in the form of live tweets, follows:
