What are the consequences that made Sakthi react against Sivan and what happened at the end? The questions for these answers forms the rest of the story.
The first half shows Vijay in a negative shade. The way his character is balanced, giving the negative touch will attract the audience. The emotional scenes between Vijay and Mohanlal will surely have a good impact. The entertainment is good in the parts, though it does not sustain throughout. On the whole, Jilla first half is emotion plus entertainment packed.
The second half reveals the positive attitude in Vijay. The variation from the negative shade to positive, will impress the audience. The war episodes between Mohanlal and Vijay drags all the attention. Though there is no scope for huge romance, the songs in the second half entertains with the right timing. Compared to first half, Jilla second half scores more marks.
Vijay as Shakti is perfect and his acting levels as a police and Baddie shows a clear variation. Kajal as a police officer had a challenging role to play, she is suited both as glamor doll and also performance oriented.
Mohanlal is the major plus to Jilla. The character he portrayed seems irreplaceable by any other actor. Brahmanandam and LB Sreeram are the added flavors of Jilla’s Telugu version. Though the songs has the dubbing flavor, the background score will be applauded by the Telugu audience too. Director Neesan is found successful in bringing the Telugu flavor to Jilla.
Jilla Final Word
Though there is not much uniqueness in script, Jilla still entertains with an outstanding screenplay.
