Good movie but we expected more........

But Thalaivar Super Star Rocks in this movie ,
climax is simple one

*SPOILER*  not a regular super star film

director had not used the rajini sir style from the beginning to the end . but last 10 min of the film is awesome . almost everybody who watch the movie will enjoy the last 10 min only i rate it as 2/5

I didn't expect this from superstar...

the flashback of this story is calm and quite good... otherthan that all is worst in this movie..even songs...the voice of superstar was not clear...the climax scene is so bad and not practically cent percent possible...Atlast my statement of this flim is "WORST OF RAJINI's FLIM"

very good movie

rajini is back.... very good to see him again with very nice movie

one and only superstar thalaivar

vayasanalum unga style um azhagum ennakumay pogathu thalaiva
we love the movie
