Billa 2 (2012) Tamil Movie Review Aggregator
Expectations regarding ‘Billa 2′, the prequel to Ajith’s super hit film ‘Billa’ have been quite huge, and has the film that has been released today, lived up to them? Not quite, from the looks of it. Most critics have advised to watch the movie for Ajith, and Ajith alone.
IBN Live says you could watch it for ‘Thala’: “If you liked ‘Billa’ and ‘Mankatha’, and expected as much from the prequel, it falls well short of expectations. As a film I’d hardly have stayed put through its entire length if it were not for Ajith alone. And if you must watch that’ll be advise too – watch it only for Thala.”
Oneindia agrees: “As far as director Chakri Toleti is concerned, he could have done a bit more homework on the subject, as the story lacks strength. He seems to have made the film keeping the Thala fans in mind. The movie is all about Ajith’s heroism – though as a baddie. It is out and out Ajith film.”
Behind Woods says the feelings are quite mixed: “Billa 2 will please hardcore action fans and Ajith fans in particular. The emotional connect goes down thanks to a laborious second half. But, the idea of making a prequel and the grand scale of the movie make sure that the movie isn’t a tiresome experience either.”
