Director : Chakri Tholet
Music Director : Yuvan Shankar Raja
Banner: SVR Media Pvt Ltd
Producer: Shobha Rani
Starring : Ajith, Parvathy Omankutty, Bruna Abdullah, Vidyut Jamwal, Sudhanshu Pandey and others


Story: The film starts with a voice from behind re-visiting an ordinary coastal men’s life. Ajith as an ordinary coastal man starting to live his life pretty simple with his region people..He gets introduced to a drug and weapon dealers by his coastal head , he agrees to work for them considering the poor livelihood of his family, as predicted he was being cheated by the dealers and whole kundos captured him and his coastal people and made them to Agathigal for money which they gonna get later !

Thereby, heroeines enter and fall for ajith’s pity situation and bad lights he undergo , how ajith learns all the arts from them and transform as an Underworld don who gets control of entire network after the death of Sudhanshu Pandey form a rest of the Story.

Performance: Ajith (david) when reforms as don shown with his slick and style appearance and dialogues, but failed to justify the character when being Agathi. He looked unselected for the refugee role no offence meant. He could have reduced his weight though. And he excels in transforming show and in some places he over acted and emoted in poor sense. Bruna Abdullah & Parvathy appeared too much sexy and too much show off and nothing more for their role. Some scenes should’ve been deleted for adult content .Vidhyut as side-villain rocked in looks.

Technical: Music was good in parts. Madraa Pilla Edurai Illa and Hrudhayam Naalo Hrudhayam Inka were poorly picturised. Other three was good. BGM had no new compositions, Yuvan just re-used the old_billa part 1 themes here.Cinematography was Awesome. Red Epic worked to some extent but in some places it looked so contrast and dull grey which harms some audience. Dubbing quality is not up to the mark. Voice looked unmatched even lip movement looked unusal.



Ultimately, this movie is made for Ajith’s fans but not for Telugu audience. Ajith looks fit in the first half while in the second half we get to see him in his typical suave avatar. The ferocious eyes in the fight sequences are Ajith’s biggest strength. His daring guts in the climax helicopter stunt have already been well documented but one does feel that the impact created by this aerial fight isn’t as great as expected.

The fight sequences done by three separate stunt masters stand out for their ruthless nature. The fist cuffs are fast and they are violent to say the least. The ‘A ‘ certificate seems justified. There are lots of stylish gun shots and blasts that send the pulse racing. But the impact created by all these explosions isn’t great, again.

There were lots of violence scenes present and some sexually explicit content could have been avoided although it rated Adultery film.

Climax was not convincing and they’ve missed the point what makes Ajith as David Billa and less was said on it. The film is noway near to entertaining in terms of content and scenes.

Positives :-
-Ajith’s performance as Transforming a Don(david billa)
-2nd half locations

Negatives :-
- Ajith as coastalman(David) was miscast
-1st half was so dragging
- Dialogues given to other non tamil artists except Ajith were pretty rubbish.
-Mindless violenc scenes and back sound
-Adultery scenes in some parts were used extreme
-Climax so illogical and not convincing.
-Predictable Scenes towards the end.

Verdict: Gangster movie that doesn’t pack a solid punch
