*SPOILER*  Most expected movie let down by weak script

The most expected movie of the year 2015, starring Vikram and Amy Jackson. The characterization of everyone in the movie was brilliant. The script of the movie is so simple that anyone would have predicted the storyline from the trailer. Song sequences were very breezy to the eyes making everyone to say "WOW". But the wow aspect is missing completely in the script. Shankar could have concentrated more on the script which had something to say but was conveyed differently. Amy Jackson has done her part very well. She was like a angel in the screen. Vikram - The man of hard work must be respected for his hard work and dedication. There were some illogical scenes where heroine accepts the hero even after he loses his beauty. 97 % of girls won't do that (Come on Shankar! Which century are you in?). Shankar has given a movie for the purpose of entertaining and he wins in entertaining the audience, even though the script is weak. One of the best BGMs ever by AR Rahman - A true legend. PC Sreeram's camera work speaks for itself.

Overall: A feel good movie which is worth watching only for Vikram , Shankar, AR Rahman and PC Sreeram.

A must watch movie..!!

This is the first Indian film to be associated with Weta Workshop. This special effects company is based in New Zealand.

It used to take 4-5 hours every day to complete Vikram's makeup for his role in the film.

One song required Vikram to wear bulky costumes. To be able to carry such heavy outfits, the actor had to gain weight. At the time of shooting, he weighed 110 kilos.

The cycle fight sequence, shot in Hongcun, involved stuntsmen from China and Hong Kong.

Vikram's bodybuilder character considers Arnold Schwarzenegger his role model. His hairstyle is also inspired by the Hollywood action hero, who attended I's audio launch in Chennai in 2014.

The film's teaser was the first Indian movie teaser to cross one million views on YouTube within the first 12 hours of it's release.
