Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi known more for his classy performances in very many films right from the start of his career has taken liberties with his the fraternity of his fans as well as the viewers at large in stretching himself to the funniest possible level in this home-production, also a joint venture, with no big story line to boast of; but his liveliness & cheerful execution of his character has facilitated him to virtually carry the film on his shoulders in as effectively a manner as possible! Yogi Babu fits the role like a T and has contributed adequately for the smooth run of the proceedings exactly from the point he makes an entry! Watch him steal the thunder with the lead man in tow in the sequences staged at Paris!

Of the two leading ladies, Madonna steals a march over Sayeeshaa who too has done a neat job!

Saranya Ponvannan as Don Junga’s mom is perfectly set for the character and the same could be said of Vijaya Patti, playing the Don’s daring grandma! Her performance is as flashy as her gestures and body movements! Watch her throw in tantrums at the support staff of Suresh Menon, the heroine’s dad who holds their ancestral property!
As far as the opening, middle and the film’s climax are concerned, Gokul has tried to be as funny as possible taking cinematic license to give twists and turns to the plot, not sparing a single opportunity to tickle the funny bones of the audience at every turn! Full credit to the director as well as the lead actor who has flexed to maximum possible levels!

Junga (Vijay Sethupathi) a commoner who lives with his Mom (Saranya Ponvannan) and grandma (Vijaya Patti) unmindful of the fact that his dad, Ranga, granddad Linga (both Vijay Sethupathi!) were both Dons!

Family heritage falls in line with Junga too falling in line to turn into a dreaded yet funny Don!

Watch the scene where Junga learns how he got his name as narrated by his Mom in an animated manner!

Junga, the Don is now vested with the responsibility of getting back an ancestral property, a single screen theatre whose rights are in the hands of a business magnate, Kumarasamy Chettiar (Suresh Menon)

How he accomplishes the mission is the fun filled rest! On expected lines, he falls in love with Yazhini (Sayeeshaa) while he goes to Paris but only after having a few romantic moments with a village-bred girl (Madonna Sebastin) while being a bus conductor!

The camera work of Dudely and the score of Siddharth Vipin add pep to the proceedings.

Junga running successfully-says an end tag as Junga runs away from the ploice thwarting an attempt for an encounter!
