      Review Good Bigil



      With Bigil,Atlee delivers one of Vijay's better actorly outings at the expense of his mass avatar. Don't get me wrong,he does the usual Vijayisms like the chewing gum trick and the forces attempts at comedy. But this time,he is backed up by some solid sentiments and emotions.But as a sports flick,Bigil sucks big time.

      There's not an iota of research nay basic sports knowledge that has gone into creating the football scenes. Each and every goal scored by the TN team consists of some weird aerodynamic acrobatics. For a team game,we don't see any dribbling,through passes or teamwork. It's apparently as if the makers decided, you guys have come to see Vijay,why on earth would you bother about the supporting acts.

      The fight scenes are very ordinary and lack any sort of thrill. ARR's score does the heavy lifting when any attempt is made to induce tears in the audience. The tracks are used well, especially Singappenney with a surprise cameo.

      Vijay puts in a decent effort in both his roles , although to be honest a better actor would have worked wonders with this role. But he does irritate with his usual mannerisms in the comic scenes. Nayantara cashes in an easy paycheck,while looking ravishing. Tiger ka Baap does initially show promise to be a threatening villain, but then retreats into the shadows once Vijay's Bigil avatar takes over. There is a stereotypical Neil Nitin Mukesh type villain who is played this time by Kabir Singh's brother. And yeah,when you want to cast a north Chennai baddie,Daniel Balaji should always be on your speed dial

      Ultimately,it's the father son sentiment and the women empowerment angle which saves this movie. The acid attack Survivor episodes and the episodes with the player turned housewife are powerful and well acted.

      Bigil isn't great art. But as a 3 hour theater watch,it is never boring

      Rating:3/5(Good)

      Perfect movie for Bhai to remake

      Yes..never boring. But, with a little sense of what a great opportunity he had to make a landamark Vijay film, Atlee could have done wonders. Instead, he gets less ambitious and settles for a normal masala movie which will be forgotten by next Diwali.

      Vijay Anna ivalo Periya box office thalaivan aanath yaarale ennu neenga nenachiteenga?

      Critics and multiplex audienceinaleya? Ille

      A centre audiencenaleya? Ille

      B and C centre Tamizh makkalude Bigileeeeeee

      These makkal aren't interested in a Chak De. Minimum oru Sultan level masala needed for a sports drama to be hugely successful in Tamil
