How Lenin Vijay and the villagers fight for their rights and get over this disaster is the rest of the story.
Uriyadi 2 which only has traces of the earlier film is more of a disaster movie than a action thriller. Though the movie has 90% of unknown cast, still this film gives the right tone for the movie without unnecessary over acting. The first half slow and forms the base for the film with friendship, love & political aspects. While the second half is hard hitting with melodrama. Though Vijay kumar’s acting is not on the stronger side, but dialogues gives command in the second half. The climax too is not convincing and ends very weak. I give the film 5/10
Super deluxe starts consists of four stories each deviating the moral code which the society follows. A couple caught in a bizarre murder situation. A father returning home as a transgender after seven years to meet his family. Four Adolescent boys who bunk school to watch porn, only to find out that one of their friends mother is in that film. A suicidal man who escapes death in the tsunami, who believes God as saved him to save mankind. Each of These stories tells you about moral and ethics which the society allows to evolve according to their ease which in turn forget about humanity.
Thiagarajan Kumaraja who comes after a long break from his first film, meticulously Chooses lead actors to play extreme characters which elevates the film to a different level. Samantha and Fahad Fazil compete with each other in their episode, while Vijay Sethupathy’s reactions gives us goosebumps. Bhagavathi Perumal steals the shows in couple of scenes , but might be a little artificial towards the end. Ramya Krishnan might have be given the least screen space but is in top of her performance in which she appears. Mysskin’s acting was the only one on the downside. The best comes from Ashwanth Ashokumar the youngest actor of the cast who plays Rasukutty. While cinematography by P S Vinod and Nirav Shah takes us inside each story, music by Yuvan and sound design by Tapas Nayak completes the film in the narration. Kudos for the whole team. The film gets 8/10

Nayanthaara in the recent time has experimented with new directors and different genre. this is also one of them. Though the story follows the horror pattern, sentiment overtakes and works. Nayanthaara carries both the dual roles with ease and dominates the screen.There are moments where admire The lady super star, this movie would not worked without her.KalaiArasan has also done a decent job in his character. The first half needlessly wanders around but the second half has the best content of the film. Horror scenes too doesn’t have much of impact as we see nothing new.The core of the film which is based on the butterfly effect was not exploited in the screenplay.The director could have just elaborated the second part of the story which could have worked better. It give the film 4/10
