Tamil film, “Thalaivaa”, one of the most-anticipated films of 2013, has been released worldwide except at home – Tamil Nadu. The family entertainer is directed by AL Vijay of “Deiva Thirumagal” fame.
The film features Vijay and Amala Paul in the lead roles, while Ragini Nandwani, Rajiv Pillai, Santhanam and Sathyaraj play supporting roles. “Thalaivaa” tells the story of a man who turns into a leader.
Upon watching the film this perspective is not hard to understand as his latest, reveals a Vijay different from what we’ve ever seen before. Helmed as a more serious action flick, reminiscent of Godfather tones in its trailers, Thalaivaa took on the bold task of marrying commercial action with a grittier look at how those without means seek justice for a myriad of social issues.
A common man with common dreams went on to become the leader… This is the story of Vijay’s controversy-coated Thalaivaa.
The film begins in 1988 when South Indian community in Mumbai is attacked, there emerges a leader Anna (Sathyaraj) and in the midst of fighting for the people Anna hands over his son to his friend (Nazar), who migrates to Australia.
Cut back to the present era: Anna’s son, Vishwa (Vijay) is now a professional dancer in Australia, there he meets Amala Paul and falls in love. Vishwa along with his ladylove and father-in-law (Suresh) travels to Mumbai to meet his father and fix the marriage. But Vishwa gets the shock of his life and he realizes that his father is in trouble. He now decides to fulfill his duties as a doting son and goes to an extend to sacrifice his love. The rest of the story is all about the transition of an innocent young man (Vishwa) to a leader (Vishwa Bhai). He is now ready to take on his dad’s enemies.
