vijay - sura1

Nowadays actors who always prefer super action hero roles seems to be transformed slowly to normal and natural roles. At the same time superstars like Rajinikanth trying their level best with convincing roles like Sivaji and sci – fiction Enthiran with maximum entertainment guaranty.

But there are few actors, like Vijay, are still living in the world of myths and not ashamed for giving half baked films like Kuruvi, Villu, Vettaikkaran, Sura and cheating the so called die hard fans continuously.

Sura, the 50th film of Vijay is surely a disaster in his 19 years old career. The story is as old as hills and the sequences are stale and repeated. Vadivelu is the only plus point in this two and half hour horrible experience.

Another important point is, S P Rajkumar, who always making some b grade films, wasted a golden opportunity to establish himself as a front line entertainment film maker.

The story goes like this…

Sura is a good hearted young man in a Fishery Village called Yaazh Nagar (Yaazh is the name of Srilankan city Jaffna!?). He is doing good things to the villagers. He fights for the rights of the villages. Every one loves his mischievous, humour sensed activities. Simply, he is the ‘Chella Pillai’ of the village!

He owes to marry a girl only after solving all the problems of fishermen in the village. One day Tamanna trying to destroy herself in the Village’s sea side, due to loss of her pet dog! As usual Vijay come to her rescue and instead of jumping in to the sea, in the very next scene, Tammu jumps to his heart and go for duet in some beautiful locations.

In the mean time, Dev Gil, a local minister trying to vacate the village and occupy the entire land. Knowing this Vijay starts his fight with him. At a stage, Minister plans to destroy Vijay.

How Vijay escapes from the plot and save the people and join with Tamanna is the predictable, boring climax!

Nothing special to mention in Vijay’s action, stunts and even his comical scenes irritate a lot. The only change from his earlier flicks is…his bubbly face! As usual he delivers half a dozen meaningless punch dialogues, in the climax some peppy dance numbers with Tamanna.

For Tamanna, it is one more film in her acting career… Thats all!

Vadivelu tries to save the film till the interval. But the post interval sequences (Except the one with Vennira Aadai Moorthy track) totally killing the interest of the viewers.

Manisharma gives the Tamil coating for all his 5 songs which took place earlier in some Telugu films like Billa!

S P Rajkumar totally failed to cover even some of the die hard Vijay fans with his unimpressive narration, expected twists and amateur direction.

Sura – May be a Gold (jubilee) in number, but fails to earn the same for its quality!
