Fight corruption in style...SUPERSTYLE
23 January 2016 | by navenkumarselvaSee all my reviews

This movie is just Rajini-show all the way through, fighting corruption with his unique style and mannerism,this is surely a win-win situation for the Superstar and Shankar.This is definitely not Shankar's best,movies like Indian and MUDHALVAN were better when it came to showing real life events real,nevertheless this is just pure entertainment.The supporting casts such as Vivek,Shriya and Suman the villain did a tremendous job.The villain had a special makeover which removes him from his original face,brilliant make ups,magnificent cinematography,not A.R Rahman's best work,but certainly a good soundtrack and there were many songs which became big hits,overall a huge family entertainer and corruption fighter.Lets fight corruption in style,SUPERSTYLE...
