Ilayathalapathy Vijay's Jilla Movie Review by cinediary. Released on January 10, Jilla casts Mohanlal, Vijay, Kajal Agarwal and Mahat Raghavendra in the lead roles.

Story: Jilla is the story of Sivan [Mohanlal], who has monetary power on Temple town Madurai and his adopted son Shakthi [Vijay], most favorite among Sivan's three children. Jilla begins with a classy intro by Mohanlal followed by flashback. But real fun begins when Shakthi [Vijay] arrives with deliberate stunt scene. Movie takes a turn when Sivan is arrested by the police and Sakthi turns a cop just to please his godfather. Influenced by series of happenings, Sakthi develops haywire on Sivan with a touch of romance with Shanti [Kajal Agarwal]. Will Shakthi follow justice? Will he able to save Sivan? Watch Jilla for climax...

Performances: Mohanlal has to be lauded both performance wise and for accepting the role as Vijay's father in Jilla overlooking his hero image. As Sivan he has been given enough space and while watching we don't feel like he is doing supporting role.

Vijay looks young and dynamic in Jilla. Coming to his role in the film is not so new compared to his previous films, yet he has given his best. As Shakthi he keeps Jilla engaging with his funny mannerisms that went over on top in few instances.

Kajal Agarwal is just a glam doll available on screen and sizzled well with Vijay in couple of songs.

Mahat Raghavendra looks charming and done justice to his role. Few others like Poornima Bhagyaraj, Soori, Niveda Thomas did their parts well while others are wasted.

Technical Analysis: Debutant Nesan has to be appreciated for his choice of actors and crew. Story line is the only drag behind, while screenplay is okay and fairly predictive in parts. N.Baskaran's punch dialogues tickle at places. 

D. Imman's intellectual compositions, especially the background scores are on high quotient. Songs are good and placed at regular intervals. SPB-Shankar Mahadevan's 'Pattu Onnu' song is real Pongal festival on-screen, choreography played the spoilsport at parts. Cinematographer Ganesh Rajavelu has done a great job. His camera works in stunt sequences are laudable. Editor Don Max could have trimmed the film overall to aid the lengthy run-time. Vijay's designer is worth a mention.

Analysis: Nesan kept his promise by entertaining audiences throughout with his narration style including Vijay's action persona, but he could have worked on script more. Director planned to make use of many antagonists in his flick, as many times problems arise due to every other villain and gets solved in the next turn. They seemed so predictable, avoiding such scenario could have helped in Jilla's success. First half of Jilla is passable with few comedy scenes along with action sequences and songs one on one. Director used one of his interesting twists for the interval block and is a bang. Second half follows the so called number of villains entry and exit besides commercial elements. Meanwhile, few action scenes are really hair-rising.
