I've watched the original Telugu ("Pokiri"), the remake with Salman Khan ("Wanted"), and this one and I have to say this is the best version. Vijay and Asin do an outstanding job in this story - out of all the versions, they have the best elevator scene while the others seem somewhat contrived. Vijay's run to find his father and brother is the most believable as well as you can see the emotional pain in his face. Prakash Raj - who played the villain in all three versions - is the best here as well, earning him a Vijay Award nomination for Best Villain. This script is the best version as well because the dialogues add context to the scenes that isn't available in other versions. While Vadivelu as Body Soda is a very strange character, his funny scenes stand out as the best of the three films. And, of course, the dance performances by Vijay and Asin are outstanding. Prabhu Deva did a great job updating this interesting and entertaining film and even though "Wanted" is the most famous of the versions worldwide, this is my personal favorite version.
