Vijay's Anna Movie Review and Rating

Superstar Vijay is back in a leader's role with Anna, Thalaiva in Tamil. The film had a surprise breather after a major release, Attarintiki Daredi, got postponed. Anna now has free reign over the Telugu audiences, despite a minor controversy when opposers to the film's political content tried to stall the film. This big release is out on the screens in Tamil Nadu as well as worldwide, having garnered positive talk. A sultry Amala Paul is also back with Anna, opposite Vijay.

Chennai Express review

Story :

Vijay playing Vishwa is a professional dancer, brought up in Australia. He participates in dance competitions, during which he bumps into Amala Paul. They strike up a bond and also win a competition. Following a romantic stint, they prepare themselves for marriage and plan to visit Vijay's father in Mumbai.

The dad happens to be Anna, shown initially in the film, who is the people's saviour. Anna aka SatyaRaj steps up to the situation when a Marathi community in their area try to attack a south Indian community back in the late 1980s.

When Vijay finds his father in trouble, he sends a shocking message to his girlfriend and her father Suresh. However, SatyaRaj meets the girl and father, who unfortunately turn out to be crime investigators using Vijay for their purposes. When Anna get killed, Vijay takes his place.

Analysis :

Chennai Express-review

Although the music and cinematography of Anna is a let down, the film more than makes up with the script and performances. Good editing sets a brisk pace, showcasing many twists and suspense generating moments. The film is on the lines of earlier don movies such as Rajinikanth's Basha and Kamal Hassan's Nayakudu. The film focuses more on acting, rather than action.

Performance :

Chennai Express-review

The main role of Anna, portrayed by SatyaRaj is exceptional. If Vijay shines in a romantic role, he simply glitters and dazzles in the leader's role. Amala Paul has also taken advantage of a good opportunity by performing well in her role. The comedy tracks are also enjoyable.

Final Word: Anna is not a complete political film. It gives you decent entertainment against a backdrop of violence. Despite lack of much fighting, Anna is a worthy one time watch.
