Film is very highly entertaining Brilliant movie.. I had an awesome time with this non-stop fun, especially Sim expressions were simply awesome.It is one of a top Tamil movie from the year 2014. kudos to the team.. The whole crew of Actors, Director, and Writers has done a commendable job. I would urge all those who like to watch good cinema to watch Jigarthanda. Kill and Laugh ...is the best punishment of this decade.One of the best Tamil movie ever DOT.People haven't enjoyed a very long time go and watch this is in theater.

It's a comedy thriller and will leave you with the satisfaction of having watched a good film
