Watch this if you liked: “Dheena” and “Saamy”.

R.T. Neason's "Jilla" has Vijay joining hands with Malayalam Superstar Mohanlal for the first time which creates a lot of expectations, and this has increased the star value of the film even before it was released.

The film basically revolves around Sivan (Mohanlal), a local don and his foster son Shakthi (Vijay) who becomes his right hand in his shady activities. To strengthen his illegal business, Sivan forces Shakthi to become a policeman in the same town. But soon Shakthi realizes his guilt and start doing good deed to the local citizen and decide to change Sivan for good. Along the way, there are enemies who have their own motive to take down both Sivan and Shakthi. How they overcome this forms the rest of the story.

Both the superstars have equal screen space with Mohan Lal ruling the first half with his larger than life don with memorable performance. Vijay on the other hand looks dashing and is awesome in the scene where he transforms from a careless guy to a lawful cop. His carefree role in first half and transformation to action hero in second half is refreshing. Kajal Aggarwal has nothing much to do other than being in song sequence. Suri who plays Vijay's sidekick adds a little laugh in first half. The rest of the cast like Poornima, Mahat and Sampath are adequate in their roles.

The major plus of the film is D.Imman's music score with "Kandaangi" and "Verasa" being the pick of the lot. At some point you may be feeling an aftermath of "Veeram" in this film as it contains similar all round commercial formulas like action, romance, comedy and family sentiment in every turn of scenes.
On the downside, the films lengthy runtime with too many unwanted scenes could have been trimmed.

Although all songs are tuned nicely, it's added into the film without much thought and forced into it. On whole, the film works mainly due to both Vijay and Mohanlal combo which appeals to their respective die-hard fans who are looking for a masala entertainment flick. If you forgo the logics and just wanted to pass time, then "Jilla" is watchable.
