The Jilla makers have indeed managed to pull off a casting coup of sorts. Alongside the popular hero of the masses Vijay they roped in Malayalam superstar Mohanlal. Needless to say, the two make a dashing duo in Jilla, which is one of the most-awaited Tamil films of 2014.
Vijay’s last release Thalaivaa did well at the box office, despite being unlike his usual mass entertainers. The fans of Vijay love to see him in a massy character, and the release of Jilla could slake their thirst.
While Vijay plays the lead role, Mohanlal will be seen as his mentor. “Lal sir will essay a powerful role of Vijay's mentor in the film. Scenes between them will be highly emotional and will be the highlight of the story”, director Nesan is quoted as saying.
The first look of the film was released on Diwali, and there has been a tremendous buzz over Jilla since then. The response to the first look was roaring. Also, the distribution rights of the movie has fetched the makers a whopping amount from all the centers. As per sources, the distribution rights were sold at a rapid pace that has stunned the industry. The producer and the entire team are jubilant with this development. Mohanlal has also acquired the distribution rights of the film in Kerala.
Jilla will hit the theatres on Pongal 2014, and is touted as a family entertainer but is not without the regular dose of high-octane action scenes. In the movie, Vijay plays the role of a village man from Madurai, and will be romancing Kajal Aggarwal. The two actors have even shot for a few funny sequences. The movie also stars Poornima Bhagyaraj, Mahat Raghavendra and Soori, and its music is composed by D Imman.
Here are the new stills from the movie featuring Vijay, Mohanlal and Kajal Aggarwal:
