Jilla getting positive response from oversees releasing centers. The theaters over outside india are welcomed the pongal treat from Mohanlal and Vijay.
The Screens become “Siva-Shakthi thaandavam”. Pongal 2014 is now become an ever big celebration mood. At first time Ilayathalapathy Vijay and Mohanlal coming together for Jilla, which is producer RB.Choudry (85th film).
Debutant RT.Neason wear the director’s cap, while D.Imman scores the music.
Story Wise
Jilla is the story of the sweet relationship between Sivan (Mohanlal) and Shakthi (Vijay) which turns sour due to a series of events.The movie begins with a classy intro for Mohanlal followed by a little flashback. But the real fun begins when Vijay arrives with a thunderous stunt scene. The first half traverses with comedy which is silly at times, songs at regular intervals and a few action scenes. The interval block is bang on, as Neason had a good twist in store there.Into the second half, and Jilla follows the tried and tested commercial movie formula. Songs, fights and punch lines galore, the circle of problem arising in one scene, and getting solved in the next swirls for quite a number of times. Although there are some scenes which are absolutely hair raising, there are a few which will make you squirm in your seat. The twists at the end too, are predictable.
Performace Wise
  • Vijay keeps the tempo going with his funny mannerisms, which do go over the top at a few instances. It is doubtlessly an enjoyable performance though.Vijay’s wardrobe deserves a special mention.
  • Mohanlal who grabs the majority of the screen space in the first half is mighty as he fits into the role of the character pretty well, and excels in his Tamil diction. 
  • Kajal is cute, and looks like a dreamy girl in the song sequences.
  • Out of the supporting performances, Mahat Raghavendhar is a charm in his pivotal role. Poornima Bhagyaraj, Niveda, Sampath Raj, Pradeep Rawat and the others fit the bill.
  • Dialogues by N.Baskaran are good, albeit sounding too punchy when it comes to Mohanlal.
  • Cinematography by Ganesh Rajavelu is appreciable, especially in the stunt sequences.
  • Editing by Don Max could have much crispier, as it would have aided the lengthy runtime of the film.Although they lack sense, the stunts are visually worthy.
  • Choreography in Jilla was a huge blow as Imman’s foot tapping music was brought down by the unimpressive dance moves.
  • RT.Neason could have scaled heights with the story he had with Jilla.

Whites
  • Classy intro for Mohanlal and Vijay
  • Mohanlal’s come back to tamil and his dialogue delivery with excel in tamil diction.
  • Vijay’s funny Mannerisms.
  • Music by D.Imman is the kingpin of Jilla. The songs are already tring ringers amidst all stations. Bringing in almost 5 different versions of the theme, he has put in all his efforts to make the BGM stand strong.
  • Dialogues by N.Baskaran are good, albeit sounding too punchy when it comes to Mohanlal

Blacks
  • The screenplay however, doesn’t hit full monty and the movie ends up being a disappointment, baring in the mind the starcast and the production values.
  • Second half is too lengthy and lagging somewhere.
  • As a mass entertainer movie its length of 3 hours is too heavy.

Pin Points
# Good entertainer with good songs, choreography and an awesome combo of Vijay & Mohanlal, while the second half is lengthy.
# Jilla's biggest strength are Imman's songs and BGM. Great cinematography and excellent choreography by Raju Sundaram & Sridhar.
# 1st half- mass entertainer! 2nd half- a bit lengthy, but entertaining!
# There are several scenes where fans will erupt in celebration. At the same time, some scenes are dragging.
#All the cast do their jobs well, but Vijay and Mohanlal steal the show. Both do their parts well, and show their mass.
# 3 hours too long for a mass movie. Song picturisation is a worry.
# Mass overload. Vijay and Mohanlal pack a punch, but this sure is a disappointment. D.Imman the saviour!

Bottom Line
Nevertheless, nothing can stop Jilla from being a box office success, lapped up with glee by the fans especially.

#JILLA is otherwise the average Vijay fare aimed at the mass, but his combination with Lal makes it worth a look.
