Thalaivaa, A class commercial movie which script narrates as a normal man turning out to be a leader of Mumbai. Vijay chosen a classic script this time with his two different characters in this flick. Vijay will be seen as Vishwa, a dancer and Vishwa Bhai as a leader. He has worked very well in both these characters. Amala Paul as Meera looks charm and the chemistry between Vijay and Amala Paul has worked out very well. Santhanam as usual turned out to be a rock star as Logu character. Sathyaraj is biggest plus of this movie, he plays an equal role to Vijay as “Anna”.
