A very sensitive & real topic of Tamilians being ill treated in Malaysia goes off the track & what remains is a forgettable movie. There are moments of Rajni brilliance, but overall it is a backwaas movie & a beg let down after the massive hype & propaganda. ** stars at best.
Even Hollywood stars become jealous of south Indian super stars after seeing their big-big cut outs. South India fans watch their favorite actor more than the film. So, review or the movie doesn't matter, otherwise Rs. 250 crores collection on 1st would not have happened.
Unfortunately in India reviews have an agenda. This is driven by clash of alignment to one or a set of actors Vs the others. Movie buffs should go and watch for what its worth. Another problem in India is the mob frenzy, good or bad true or false, people get swayed by what is being said than having their own assessment or opinion. Enjoy the film for what it has. It cannot be nothing, after all. After all fans of actors other than Rajini and who are against Rajini would like to dampen your spirits. Do not fall for it. Let them go through the pain..
