| Vijay, Take a Bow!!!!!
First things first, Vijay has never been revered as a hero of the multiplex crowds.

For someone with terrific track record in the box office compared to all his peers, Vijay is subjected to needless, unfair and unruly criticism by a dedicated minority especially in the social networking space where calling yourself a fan of a good looking actor is seen as an added incentive to gain attention. Some budding small actors also join the bandwagon to use the good looking hero's name to gain popularity.

But wait!!!

Have the efforts of the dedicated minority and some cheap actors paid dividends? Have they been able to make any impact on Vijay's Box-office prowess?

The answer is a resounding NOOOOOO!!!!! The reason is, no matter what the social network says, Vijay is the most consistent and bankable star in the Tamil Industry for good part of last 15 years. Vijay has the largest fan following of all actors in his generation and truly is the Man of the Masses.

The Illayathalapthy is back with a resounding bang with Thuppakki!!!!

In what can be truly said as a resounding slam 'straight to the face' for all who undermined him, Vijay absolutely thrills in Thuppakki.

The movie is also a comeback of sorts for the director and A.R. Murugadoss has sketched a character that promises to turn both his and Vijay's career around. Thuppakki is all about the life of Major Jagdeesh and his encounter with a dreaded head of the sleeper cells network in Mumbai,Vidyut Jamaal.

Vijay enthralls in all areas of Action,Dialogue Delivery,Comedy and Dance and once again proves that @37 he is the fittest and the most energetic hero around. Vijay take a bow!!!!

The technical aspects of the movie w.r.t. Camera by Santhosh Sivan,Editing by Sreekar Prasad and Music by Harris Jayaraj are all top notch. Special mention should be made regarding the background score by Harris, World Class!!!!!

With Thuppakki's resounding success,Vijay has once again proved that he is second only to Rajnikanth with respect to fan following and market value. Thuppakki will always remain an important feather in Vijay's cap and a movie close to the heart for all this fans.

Surely, this is the first of many to come for the Ilayathalapathy and this movie has done its bit to stop the unfair treatment for Vijay in the social networking space. Vijay fans look a lot confident in facing up against unfair ridicule and criticism.

Ilayathalapathy Vijay is here to stay and rule!
