Perarasu has kept his reputation of rendering successful commercial masala entertainers intact with Thirupathy with Ajith dazzling at his best. It's re-energised and a fiery Ajith who takes the whole burden on his shoulders and delivers a consummate performance. A simple theme stretched in a riveting manner thanks to a racy screenplay.

Ajith in the company of  Perarasu and music composer Bharadwaj seems to revel in an author-backed mass role.

In a nutshell, the movie is about why should the State government usher free pregnancy treatment to prevent several women being made to undergo operation (caessarian) during  pregnancy by greedy doctors out to make a fast buck.

Perarasu in order to deliver this message has woven an interesting screenplay and set a sequence of events which would be certainly loved by Ajith's fans. Ajith has loads of punch dialogues glorifying his stature and stunts sequences where he bashes all around.

The movie begins with Thirupathy (Ajith), running a sound service, ready to take on any evil that he comes across in his day-to-day life. He happens to meet a beautician Priya (Sadha). A sequence of hilarious encounters between them results in love blossoming between them.

Meanwhile Thirupathy's friend Muthu (Riaz Khan), son of a State Minister, for whom Thirupathy is ready to go to any extent and sacrifice anything in life, turns his foe when Thirupathy tries to bump off a doctor whose callousness results in Thirupathy's sister's (Dheepu) death during pregnancy.

Muthu prevents Thirupathy from bumping off the doctor and threatens to kill Thirupathy himself for the doctor is none  other than Muthu's brother himself.

Coming to know that he has been betrayed by his own friend, Thirupathy resolves to put an end to both. He manages to kidnap Muthu and efforts to trace Thirupathy and Muthu fail.

Meanwhile, he manages to use Muthu as his bait to get the State government enact a law on providing free treatment for pregnant women in all the hospitals in the State. All's well finally ends well.

It is escapist fare, alright. But in a mass movie it works.

Ajith looks more comfortable on the screen in Thirupathy unlike his recent movies and looks at ease in stunt and dance sequences too.   Interestingly the comedy that he has tried out too has also come good. In terms of looks, Ajith, who came across as being wan in Paramasivan, looks dashing debonair here.

Sadha, who plays his lady love, has a simple role. She looks ravishing in songs.

Riyaz Khan is the surprise packet of the movie. A typical villain, enacting the role of a friend turning the foe, has been portrayed well by Riyaz. The movie has a huge star cast including Pyramid Natarajan, Manobala, Arun Pandian (playing the cop on the trail of Ajith), Manobala and R Sunderarajan.

Playing sidekicks M S Baskar, Kanja Karuppu and Satyan manage to leave an impression.

Bharadwaj's foot-tapping tunes are a welcome delight for Ajith's fans and the front-benchers. Specially Keerai Vidhaipom featuring Ajith and Laila is a mass song sure to top audio-charts. His fast background adds to the momentum of the movie.

Among other contributions, which deserve a special mention are  Thalapathy Dinesh's stunts and cinematography by S Saravanan.

Perarasu, who has penned the story, screenplay, dialogues and lyrics besides wielding the megaphone has enacted the role of an auto-driver and also features in a stunt sequence.

Perarusu has no pretensions. He knows his constituency. He has a formula. And he has not bothered to tamper with it. Why fix it when it is no
