The UK theatrical release was cut, after the uncut version initially received a '15' classification from the UK censor board; the distributors opted to remove moments of strong violence (shootings, stabbings, a pole being used to dislocate a man's arm and sight of blood dripping from a character's mouth) along with a scene of torture in which a man's fingers are extracted below screen were removed. This cut version was re-classified '12A' and was released into UK cinemas, however the film was later released uncut on DVD with a '15' rating. See more »
Thuppakki: Honestly and Proudly, A Distinctive Vijay Movie Ever
Among all the 54 movies including Thuppakki, this one stands separate as the best performer. Poove Unakaga, Kadhaluku Mariyadhai, Ghilli were huge turning points in Vijay's career and set new benchmarks. And now Vijay has put himself into more trouble by raising the bar higher in Thuppakki.
For second movie in a row Vijay's name came after the movie name, which in my view is good and the title cards was good, showing different places in Mumbai.
A decent introduction song, Kutti Puli Kootam but the next song, Antartica came rather quickly and chilled me a lot. I never finished listening Alaika Laika song but in my view that was the best choreographed song in the movie. Google Google meets expectation, Vennilave okayyy, poi varava was heart touching.
The movie flows well in first 20 mins with the regular hero heroine introduction comedies. As soon as antartica song is over, movie enters main story and rest is just THE GAME. A game with thrill, ideas, lot of smartness, team work and the Gun.
Interval block amazing, Vijay's Hindi superb, stunning camera-work, enthralling background score, pacy editing, perfect climax with a touching end :)
Kajal satisfies with her role, Vidyut is smart, Jayaram was too good in his comedies and Ilayathalapathy Vijay was just the best in his career, with his attitude driven performance.
Undoubtedly to be the biggest hit in Vijay's Career... Thank you thalaiva :)
