Vijay's charisma mersals the audience

Atlee should be credited for his exceptional confidence in the way he unfolds the story. Atlee brings the blend of very best of Shankar's rich production value and AR Murugadoss social theme from Ramana. (more)

Triple Vijay - Triple impact

Though just two films old, Atlee has created an impression that he is a master when it comes to emotions. So an emotionally overwhelming person decides to make an out and out mass film. Theri was a mix of emotion, drama and action but this time, he goes more full-fledged towards action.(more)

A crowd-pleaser that knows exactly who its audience is!

Mersal belongs to Vijay and he totally steals the show with his comic timing, mass dialogue delivery, powerful screen presence and racy moves. The magician will be loved by kids while the rebel dad will be embraced by the ardent fans of the actor. (more)

A rollicking entertainer to satisfy hardcore Vijay fans, and family audiences

Vijay holds the film together and is riveting in each of the three roles, especially as Thalapathy. He is as at east doing comedy as he is in the action sequences. Mersal does have subtle political messaging, in keeping with its superstar's ambitions. (more)

This Diwali, Vijay is back to doing what he does best

Much like most of his films, Vijay plays to the gallery. His performance is very rarely benign. Since it's a Vijay film, Mersal requires all the must-haves.(more)
