After a soft outing in his last Nanban, Vijay takes an action avatar in Thuppakki. Thanks to director A R Murugadoss he plays a military officer on a mission in the movie.
Though the movie reminds one of Vijayakanth's petriotic films, it is more cerebral stuff and the taut screenplay makes it worth a watch. Vijay's screen presence and a griping script by Murugadoss, set in Mumbai makes it an interesting and an intriguing affair.
The movie predominantly glorifies the sacrifices of Indian Army. They struggle to keep the nation peaceful and calm. Vijay is one such military officer who has a task to complete.
Thanks to splendid camera work by Santosh Sivan and peppy music by Harris Jeyaraj, the movie ends up a technically rich film with al ingredients to entertain masses.
Kajal Agarwal, Sathyan, Vidyut Jamwal among others play key roles. Produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu, the movie manages to keep on entertained.
Jagadish (Vijay) comes on a vacation to his house in Mumbai. A bravado he declines the wish of his parents to Nisha (Kajal Agarwal). But soon he meets her in few places and romance blossoms. Jagadish has other means to achieve.
He comes across a blast in Mumbai and catches the man who planted the bomb. This leads to him going behind sleeper cells, who are controlled by evil forces from across the border of the nation to stage serial blasts in Mumbai.
Now Jagadish wages a war against them. How he executes it and eventually bumps off Vidyut Jamwal, the brain behind the terror network forms the crux.
Vijay hogs all limelight. He looks stylish and does his job well.
He proves that is a good best dancer and good at stunt sequence too.
Kajal Agarwal is cute and had a major role to play while Sathyan's comical act is good.
Vidyut Jamwal as baddies does his job well.
On the whole, Thuppaki is a nice entertainer with nice message.
