Once, JD had to cross the line of Bhavani, the dreaded criminal. What happens when Bhavani decided to ruin the Master? Watch the film to know the rest.

Star Performance

As usual, Vijay has given a satisfying performance to his fans. The action scenes are mass and a treat to his fans. Malavika Mohanan did what is required. The Ultimate show stealer is Vijay Sethupathi. Whether it is the look or body language or dialogue delivery, this guy pulled the attention of the entire audience and impressed them.


Lokesh Kanagaraj knows the pulse of the Vijay fans and had made the film accordingly. Whether it is dance or fight, Vijay excelled in his style. The characters are designed well and the stars fit well in the role and kudos to the casting team. The cinematographer and the VFX team should be specially mentioned for their hard work. The color tones are perfect and cool and they hadn’t disturbed the eyes anywhere. Certain shots from a different angle make the audience feel to watch it once again. A bit from Ghilli is used by Anirudh and it brings some nostalgic moments. But, certain scenes failed to create the expected magic. The scenes with Andrea should have been captured better with some more emotions. The reason for JD’s addiction is not mentioned properly.

What’s There?

  • Performance of the stars
  • The climax is strong and superb
  • Vijay – Vijay Sethupathi combo scenes

What’s Not There?

  • Certain scenes needed a better explanation
  • Run time should have been shortened


It is definitely a treat to both Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi fans. If you are a fan of either of them or a masala movie lover, you can watch it for sure!
