Storyline

Held in a cell, Sivaji reflects how he came to be under police scrutiny and his subsequent arrest for a variety of economic offenses. He had returned to Chennai from the U.S. to live with his parents and maternal uncle, and had hoped to invest money in colleges and hospitals so that people who are not privileged can benefit - much to the chagrin of a sophisticated goon, Adisheshan, who threatens him, and asks him not to tread on his territory. Disregarding this and hoping to get his projects going, Sivaji runs into bureaucratic corruption and red-tape - so much so that he gives in and bribes an official Rs.4 Crores to complete his Rs.200 Crore project. An enraged Adisheshan has the local politician stop the work, but Sivaji bribes the latter Rs.50 Crores, after liquefying most of his assets. While he is busy wooing and attempting to marry Tamizhselvi/Vidyabharti Ramlingam, a new politician takes over, stops his project, and demands another Rs.50 Crores. Unable to come up with the ...

The Real Style
30 June 2007 | by jbragadeeshSee all my reviews

When the best people in the south Indian cinema meet (Shankar, Rajini, A.R.Rehman, AVM), the expected hype will be too much. There was a lot of pressure on both the fan's part and the movie makers' part to make Sivaji a huge hit by all means. It was a long time since padayappa, they've seen Rajini in full action. Baba was a clear let down. Chandramukhi was not a Super star centered movie. And for his reputation and style, the fans were very thirsty and were ready to see movie of any kind with their super star in form. In fact, i am a hardcore superstar fan. And i was one of the thirsty fans waiting to see my hero in action. For a guy like me, this movie has everything in it. A nice blend of action, comedy, stunts and THE STYLE of Super star. You cannot expect too much logic. Not for the super star. The director has to satisfy both his fans and Rajini's fans. I felt totally satisfied after coming out of the theater. Well, the movie did have pitfalls but the star's style easily dominated them. Overall rating : 8 out of 10.
