Bigil movie review: Bigil is the most expected movie for this Diwali. Bigil is a sports oriented action thriller movie, Directed by Atlee, This is the third consequent movie in Vijay and Atlee combo.
The cast of the movie includes Nayanthara, Jackie Shroff, Vivek, Kathir, Yogi Babu, Indhuja and more. Music by A R Rahman, Cinematography by G K Vishnu, Edited by Ruben and produced by AGS entertainments.
Actor Vijay plays dual role of father and son characters, Rayappan the father is a gangster, he doesn’t want his son Michael to be the same. So Rayappan involves his son Michael in football and he becomes a state football player, but later the situation turns the son Michael a gangster.
Kathir the football coach of a women’s football team is accidently injured and he recommends Michael to train his football team, did Michael succeed as a coach and fulfill his father Rayappan’s dream, is the movie all about.
Actor Vijay has done justices to both father and son role, as Michael his charm and energetic performance is impressive. Vijay perfectly fits into Rayappan role. Expect his voice, Rayappan character is convincing. The girls who have played the football players role have given a good performance.
Even though the movie has lot of characters, other than Vijay there is no much space for rest of the cast to score. Even the lady Superstar Nayanthara is not given much screen space. Vivek’s performance is also not convincing. Rahman’s music and background is a great plus to the movie, Cinematographer has done his best. The CG work in the football match is not up to the mark, it just gives an effect of playing football in play station.
With such a vast casting and huge budget the director might have done wonders. But with a very predictable screenplay and with lots of lag in the first half, the movie has not met its expectations. But the director’s thought of inducing women empowerment in his story is appreciable.
Actor Vijay has done his maximum and led the movie to a success path. The movie will surely satisfy Vijay fans, but it is a question that whether it will satisfy the normal audience.
