Here is Pokkiri remake of the Telugu blockbuster with the same title.Prabu Deva has retained most of the scenes with only minor changes.The casting is good.
Prakash Raj and Nasser who acted in the original have done justice to their roles in the Tamil version too.Vijay fits the role well and so does Asin.Vadivel does good except for that stupid water joke.The chemistry between Vijay and Prakash Raj is great (just like in Ghilli).The scene where police restrain Prakash Raj from sleeping was fabulous.
Songs are not that great.
The only thing i didn't like this movie was with Vijay's mannerism in the movie.Most of his reactions in the movie were the same as in the original.I don't know if its the director or Vijay's idea,but it didn't work out well.Those who seen the Telugu version will find this little annoying.
But for others - its a TREAT...........................
Action / Thriller
Thamizh thug for hire in the city of Chennai who has no ties to anyone and will do any dirty work as long as the money as good. He meets a young girl named Shruthi and they fall in love. But there are two obstacles in the path of their romance : firstly, Shruthi detests Thamizh's violent ways and secondly, police sub-inspector Govindan is pursuing Shruthi obsessively with intent of making her his mistress. Meanwhile, Dubai-based crime lord Ali Bhai has arrived in Chennai for the purpose of silencing his chief rival gangster Narasimhan and also to meet Thamizh who is rising within the gang's ranks. However, during the meeting, Ali Bhai is arrested in a police raid conducted by Police Commissioner Mohammed Moideen Khan and his gang hatches a morally abhorrent plan in order to secure his release.
