Expectations were great, grand and splendid for 'Sura'. This being Vijay's 50th film and it brings together Vijay, Tamannah and Vadivelu for the first time. Directed by S P Rajakumar, 'Sura' as the title suggests is a movie that is set in a fishing hamlet and the actor playing a good Samaritan to usher welfare in the lives of fisher folk.

A movie which underlines the political aspirations and ambitions of Vijay is a big one for his fans for he is achieving a milestone - completing his golden jubilee movie. A mass hero known for his big box office collections, the actor has a known path that he traverses in the recent times. 'Sura' too is no different. He is literally the one-man army who romances, fights, tries humour and challenges the baddie only to emerge triumphant in the end.

Interestingly, the actor has this time chosen to join hands with S P Rajakumar who has made a name for himself doing comedy films and that too with Vadivelu in the team. The trio has ensured that it is a light-hearted fare, right from the word go with enough thrills and spills.

'Sura' is a story that is set in Yaazh Nagar, a fishermen hamlet in coastal Tamil Nadu. The name of the place has a lot of political significance with the recent political turmoil over the ethnic strife in the neighbouring Sri Lanka. Sura (Vijay) is born and brought up here and he is obviously the darling of the masses in the area.

He, in the company of his friend (Vadivelu), who is another fisher folk, brings the roof down in laughter. Their one-liners are hilarious. Meanwhile, our hero comes across young bubbly Poornima (Tamannah) who chooses to end her life unable to cope with the death of her pet dog.

Slowly, as expected she gets attracted towards Sura thanks to his good deeds. Finally romance blossoms between them. When things seem to go well, trouble enters in the form of a greedy and corrupt Minister Samuthira Raja (Dev Gill). He wants to usurp the land where these fishermen live. His attempts to take away the wealth is resisted by Sura. They cross swords with each other.

The Minister hatches a conspiracy to bump off Sura with the help of his Ministerial post and authority and unleashes cops against him. But a man of guts and determination, he takes on them single-handedly. Who emerges the winner is the climax? Please watch the movie for the answer!

Vijay is as usual cool, bubbly and enthusiastic. He is energetic and a livewire on screen. He seems to have begun from where he left in 'Vettaikkaran'. He utters punch lines with indirect thrust on his political aspirations. However at many places, the actor reminds his earlier films from 'Pokkiri' to 'Kuruvi' to 'Vettaikkaran'. Tamannah is as usual cool and bubbly. She appears right there to romance and to dance for a couple of songs on screen.

Vadivelu is a real scene stealer as `Umbrella'. His body language, one-liners, punch lines and wits evoke instant laughter. He seems to share a good chemistry with Vijay. Riyaz Khan, Ilavarasu among others do their part well. The movie's baddie in Dev Gill wins all accolades. He is menacing all through.

Mani Sharma knows the pulse and taste of Vijay-fans as he has loaded the film with tracks that are racy and riveting from the word go. Produced by Sangili Murugan and presented by Sun Pictures, the movie is more targeted at Vijay fans and has scenes to appease them.

Sura- Strictly for Vijay fans.
