Smarter...........
17 January 2014 | by tharukshan12See all my reviews

Basically handling two major superstars in one film is not easy at all for anyone, even for a talented director. However, in this film direction towards vijay and mohanlal seemed to be much good either in action scenes or in fun making scenes. As this film been considered as the commercial entertainer, it totally exemplifies it undoubtedly. Along with vijay and mohanlal other co stars also given their best, which's the most highlight able point in this film. From beginning to end it could be considered as the tasty commercial recipe which has all ingredients perfectly, but only turned little badly in climax somehow. For a film, climax is the most significant segment which's because it may decide whether the film been enjoyed by the audience or not. According to me i only felt bad about he climax. Besides the climax, this film is a solid commercial entertainer which has lovable music, fun, sentiment, and action overall. In conclusion Jilla is an expectable treat for his fans, and no one should miss this entertainer for any reason.....
